Update (05/17): After being told the Nokia X6 would not arrive in the U.S., HMD Global has now also confirmed that the device is exclusive to China.

In an email earlier today, an HMD Global spokesperson said, “We can confirm that the Nokia X6 is exclusive to the China region only and there are currently no further launch plans to announce for other markets.”
