It's been a few months since the X71 was launched in China and Taiwan and the 2.2 isn't available there yet, not even listed on the Nokia phones websites for those countries. Last year HMD launched several models which were specifically for China - the X5, X6, X7 and Chinese version of the 3.1 plus, but this year so far only the X71. Also, those models last year had global variants as well, whereas the X71 has no global variant.
So what's going on?
I have wondered for a long time if the Chinese operation of Nokia Phones was run separately from the global operation, and the divergence this year suggests that this might be the case. Is this to do with the change in relationship between HMD and FIH Mobile? Do FIH essentially run the operation in China, and HMD have decided they don't agree with the FIH approach so that's why we don't see both Global and Chinese variants of the X71 and 2.2?
Maybe we will learn soon as we see what happens following the launch of the new phones today.
