The first Nokia handset to carry a notch seems to have attracted much attention online following its China launch event on May 16. The Nokia licensee HMD Global didn’t say anything about global availability at Nokia X6’s official unveiling. Shortly after that, a new variant of the device was spotted, triggering speculations that it’s the global model. Those speculations were shot down by the company after it officially confirmed the X6 is a China exclusive.
However now, it seems HMD is going through a change of heart. HMD may be thinking about expanding its distribution. A tweet from HMD Global Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas doubles as a poll. The question is whether the X6 should be brought to other markets. He wrote on Twitter while hosting the poll that was started on Thursday but was LIVE at the time of filing this story and received over 5,299 votes. He also hinted at the global arrival of the Nokia X6 by responding to Android Authority’s tweet highlighting that the Nokia X6 will not be coming to the US and saying, “Hold the press! We are still polling this!”
Meanwhile, a new Nokia handset with TA-1103 model number has received Bluetooth certification, as per a report by NokiaPowerUser. This could be the global version of the Nokia X6. The Bluetooth certification unsurprisingly doesn’t reveal any major specifications of the handset. However, another report claims that instead of the Nokia X6, HMD Global is preparing to launch the Nokia X5 and Nokia X7 globally. This could still hold true – HMD Global may still launch the X5 and X7 at some point. However, it is believed that the new models could come with a slightly different hardware than what was featured on the Nokia X6.
HMD Global has announced an event in Moscow, Russia on May 29. The company’s invite states that HMD Global’s CEO Florian Seiche, CMO Pekka Rantala, and CPO Juho Sarvikas will be present at the event. Even though the invite doesn’t state what will be announced specifically, we largely expect the Nokia 2, Nokia 3, and Nokia 5 refreshes to be announced.
At MWC, HMD had confirmed that the refresh of Nokia 2, Nokia 3, and Nokia 5 was in the works. Leaks surrounding the same are also picking up a pace recently! These three smartphones could indeed see the light of the day at the event on May 29. The Nokia 3.1 was spotted under testing recently, indicative of a close launch as well. However, this is pure speculation, and we recommend you to not take anything seriously till the official announcement.
