After reducing the price of Nokia 6.1 Plus earlier this month, HMD Global has now slashed prices for the older Nokia 6.1 as well. Both 3GB and 4GB RAM variants of the Nokia 6.1 will now retail on permanently reduced prices by Rs 2,000. These will now be available for Rs 9,999 for the 3GB/32GB model, and Rs 11,999 for the 4GB/64GB model.
HMD launched the Nokia 6.1 early last year with starting 3GB RAM model priced at Rs 16,999. The 4GB RAM variant came later in May 2018 at Rs 18,999. The Nokia 6.1 is an Android One smartphone by Nokia, which means that it runs a near-stock version of Android OS and receives more frequent software updates and security patches.

Upfront the display is a 5.5-inch full-HD 16:9 aspect ratio screen. The handset sports a rear fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C port for connectivity and charging.
