The Nokia 6.1 Plus or the Nokia X6, has been announced in global markets and in China last month. However, now it looks like the Finnish smartphone maker could soon be unveiling the device in the world’s third largest smartphone market, India. HMD Global, who owns the Nokia brand, has sent out media invites for a launch on 21 August in New Delhi.
Now the invite does not directly say anything about the Nokia 6.1 Plus, but very recently a support page for the same phone has opened up on Nokia’s Indian website. This has fueled rumours about the launch as India happens to be an important market for Nokia. The launch invite reads “HMD Global invites you to an exclusive gathering for the next big unveil”.
Also, there are rumours that the Nokia 6.1 Plus will not be the only device that HMD unveils. The Nokia 5.1 Plus or the Nokia X5 and the Nokia 2.1 are also possible candidates for a launch alongside the Nokia 6.1 Plus on 21 August.
