HMD Global today launched two new Android One smartphones in the Indian market – Nokia 5.1 Plus and Nokia 6.1 Plus. Both the smartphones were launched in China earlier this under the X series line. While the Nokia 5.1 Plus will not go on sale in the country until next month, the Nokia 6.1 Plus can now be pre-ordered on the Nokia India online store.
Nokia 6.1 Plus: Now Available for Pre-Order
As announced by HMD Global during the launch event earlier today, the Nokia 6.1 Plus is now available for pre-order on the Nokia Shop online. While Flipkart has not started accepting pre-orders just yet, we do expect the e-commerce giant to open pre-orders for the Nokia 6.1 Plus later today. Interested customers will be able to pre-book the Nokia 6.1 Plus starting today until the 30th of August. Nokia Shop, and possibly Flipkart as well, will begin shipping orders from the 31st of this month.
Nokia 6.1 Plus: Price in India, Launch Offers
The Nokia 6.1 Plus has been priced at Rs.15,999 in India and comes in Black and Blue color options. Launch offers include extra Rs.1,000 cashback and 260GB data for Airtel subscribers as well as No Cost MI options on both Nokia shop as well as Flipkart. The Nokia online store is also offering a buyback option for consumers interested in getting the Nokia 6.1 Plus, in association with Cashify. Once your Nokia 6.1 Plus has been delivered, the Cashify team will get in touch with you to arrange an appointment. Once they verify your old device, you will receive cash in exchange for your old device at the time of pickup.
Nokia 6.1 Plus: Specifications, Features
The Nokia 6.1 Plus comes with a curved design with a 93% glass surface area and a solid aluminum frame in the middle. HMD’s first device with a notch at the top, the 6.1 Plus features a 5.8-inch IPS LCD panel with 1080 x 2280 Full HD+ resolution and a 19:9 aspect ratio. Protecting the notched display of the smartphone is a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top.
Under the hood, Nokia’s latest Android One smartphone runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 octa-core 14nm processor clocked at 1.8 GHz with an Adreno 509 GPU. HMD has coupled the powerful octa-core processor with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory. The smartphone supports further expansion up to 400GB, although it comes with Hybrid Dual-SIM card slots instead of a dedicated microSD card slot. That means you will not be able to add a microSD card if you use two SIM cards at all times.
In terms of optics, the Nokia 6.1 Plus is equipped with a 16MP + 5MP dual-camera setup at the rear and a 16MP fixed-focus sensor on the front. The primary 16MP RGB sensor comes with PDAF, electronic image stabilization, and an f/2.0 aperture. Unlike the Nokia 6.1 (2018), the Nokia 6.1 Plus does not support 4K video capture. Instead, it tops out at 1080p Full HD with a frame rate of 30 fps. The 16MP selfie camera is coupled with an f/2.0 aperture and supports Face Unlock. Both the front and rear cameras on the Nokia 6.1 Plus come with AI-powered features like an AI Portrait Mode, AI Beauty, and intelligent scene recognition. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band, Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, USB Type-C, and Dual 4G VoLTE. The Android One smartphone also comes with FM radio, 3060mAh battery with fast charging support, and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. As for software, the Nokia 6.1 Plus currently runs on Android 8.1 Oreo OS but is expected to be updated to Android 9 Pie before the end of the year.
