HMD Global Pushes Media Invite for August 21 Event in India, Nokia 6.1 Plus Anticipated

HMD Global is launching a new smartphone in India on August 21. And we all know what it could be- the Nokia 6.1 Plus. The Android One smartphone is a rebranded version of the Nokia X6 with stock Android on board. The Nokia 6.1 Plus is a much-anticipated smartphone from the Finnish upstart, after the Nokia 7 Plus. The phone is expected to be priced over Rs 20,000, but it has all the ingredients this time around to justify the asking price, unlike the Nokia 8 Sirocco or the Nokia 3.1. The phone will compete with the likes of Xiaomi Mi A2 and Honor Play, however, both the devices mentioned feature much superior hardware than the Nokia 6.1 Plus.


Nokia 6.1 Plus Expected Pricing and Availability
The Nokia 6.1 Plus is expected to retail at Rs 22,999 and it might arrive in a single 4GB RAM and 64GB storage option. The Mi A2 with the same amount of storage is expected to be priced at Rs 17,499.

Nokia 6.1 Plus Specifications and Features
Before the Indian launch, the Nokia 6.1 Plus was launched in Taiwan. The smartphone sports a 5.84-inch Full HD+ display on the front with a resolution of 1080 x 2280 pixels and 19:9 aspect ratio. It’s powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset, clubbed with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. A microSD card slot helps in expanding the storage up to 128GB. The phone has a notch on top of the display, and the screen is protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Also, the Nokia 6.1 Plus is a glass-clad smartphone.

Moving onto the cameras, the Nokia 6.1 Plus rocks two cameras on the rear side- a 16MP primary sensor and a 5MP secondary depth sensor. The device also packs AI camera features. Up front, HMD Global has added a 16MP selfie shooter to the device with f/2.0 aperture.

As for the connectivity options, the Nokia 6.1 Plus offers 4G LTE on two SIM slots, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, USB Type-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The fingerprint scanner is placed on the rear side and the phone also has support for Face Unlock. The phone is backed by a 3060mAh battery and boots Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box.
