Nokia X5 is the second smartphone from HMD Global to have a top notch and was launched in China on July 18. The company has already started teasing the global variant of the device which means it will be no longer be exclusive to China. The global variant of the Nokia X6 is named as Nokia 6.1 Plus which fuels the rumour that the global variant of the X5 will be called Nokia 5.1 Plus.

The X series devices are exceptionally doing well in China and this may be the reason the company will soon launch overseas. Though Sarvikas hinted the global launch, he didn’t specify which market it will be launched first.

Like the global variant, the Redmi Note 6 pro will include a 10W charge but may carry support for 18W fast charging.
The recently appeared Xiaomi M1901F7T, M1901F7E and M1901F7C models are expected to launch after the Note 6. So there is a strong possibility that it is one of the phones from the Redmi 7 series, which includes further divisions like Redmi 7 and Redmi 7 Pro. Currently, there is not any information available about the handset.
All the handsets Xiaomi released this year had a “M18” in the start of their model numbers while the above mentioned devices have “M19” in their names indicating that they will be launched next year. So we can expect the company to launch the Redmi Note 6 and the Redmi 7 series in the first quarter of 2019. Though the phones have not yet cleared any other certification they are expected to appear soon into benchmarking websites and other certifications revealing more details about the handsets.
