The Nokia 6.1 Plus is currently available only in Hong Kong at a priced tag of HKD 2,288 (approximately Rs 20,000). We are not sure of the price for India as yet, but looking at the Hong Kong pricing it seems that Nokia might want to price it competitively here in India because of popular competitors like Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro and Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1.

The Nokia 6.1 Plus is part of Android One program, and it runs Android 8.1 Oreo. The company has confirmed two major software updates, and three years of security updates for all its devices.

Nokia 6.1 Plus Specifications and Features

The highlight of Nokia 6.1 Plus is the 5.8-inch LCD display with a notch, and resolution of 2280 1080 pixels. The notch on the Nokia 6.1 Plus is similar to most other smartphones in the market, and it hides the front camera and other sensors. The notch also results in taller 19:9 aspect ratio, which is taller than 18:9 aspect ratio found on most budget smartphone displays.

Powering the device is the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 mobile CPU with Adreno 509 GPU. The processor is the same as the one found under the hood of the Zenfone Max Pro M1 and Redmi Note 5 Pro.
