Among the handful of Nokia-branded smartphones unveiled by HMD Global this year is Nokia 6.1 Plus, a mid-ranger that the Finnish company launched back in August. Like thousands of Android smartphones out there, the Nokia 6.1 Plus comes with a notch, but initially, it allowed users to hide it via a simple toggle in the device s settings. That changed in September, when a software update disabled the option to hide the notch.

Obviously, there was a lot of backlash from users over this, and it seems that HMD Global has finally seen the error of its ways. According to a report by Nokiapoweruser, Nokia 6.1 Plus is now receiving a new update that brings back the ability to mask the notch, thus allowing users to have a display with uniform-looking top and bottom edges. Not just that, the update also brings Pro Camera mode to the 6.1 Plus, letting users fine-tune camera settings (for example, White Balance, ISO) and take better pictures with the smartphone. It s worth mentioning that the smartphone has already received Android Pie update. Also Read - DoT announces auction date for spectrum sale in India; Jio, Airtel, Vi expected to bid
