After reports of Nokia X6 making its way out of China into the global market as soon as July 19 in Hong Kong, a new development has confirmed that the smartphone is shortly coming to the Taiwanese market instead. This will make Taiwan the first market out of Mainland China to get Nokia's latest X6 smartphone. The teaser, posted on Nokia Taiwan's official Facebook page, shows a Nokia X6 smartphone alongside Android One branding. The smartphone has been rumoured to launch as the Nokia 6.1 Plus with Android One, out of its home country.
