As initial reports have pointed out that the newly-released Nokia 6 smartphone will only be available in China, a new update suggested that it may be sold to other markets as well.

It can be noted that for a while now, the once mobile phone giant has not released a unit that will directly compete with the bigwigs of the industry. However, with the Finnish startup, HMD Global, buying the rights to use its brand name, Nokia might just be back in the competition.

While it was previously believed that the new Nokia 6 smartphone will only be sold in China, Fortune reported that it might not just be the case. 

Nokia Power Users reportedly discovered that another variant of the said smartphone was spotted "passing through the Bluetooth wireless certification process." This variant is allegedly set for distribution to other parts of the world.

The Nokia 6 available in China is offered with a 5.5-inch HD screen, 64 GB storage, and runs on Android 7.0 Nougat software at $250.

In the meantime, China Daily reported that with the new smartphone, the brand is expected to be finally ready to face "fierce" competition.

HMD Global chief executive officer Arto Nummela said during a press briefing in Beijing, China earlier this week that with Nokia 6, they have been optimistic about capturing the Chinese market.

"We believe that we've had an in-depth understanding of the Chinese market and we've prepared to meet the competitions," he noted. "Chinese consumers are very well-educated and they know what they are demanding, their energy impressed me each time I have visited the nation."

Keep posted for more Nokia 6 smartphone updates and find out if it is intended for sale outside of China.
