Do you remember Nokia X6 that was launched as China-specific back in May this year? The phone was initially teased as the Nokia X being the first HMD Global’s venture with a notched display. The same phone is all set to make its international debut with the brand name of Nokia 6.1 Plus.
The new Nokia 6.1 Plus brings mostly unchanged design and specification features except for being part of Google’s Android One program offers a slightly different software from the Chinese nokia X6.
The smartphone turns out to be a mid-range product with decent internals and premium-looking design on top. Other than the notched cut out, the design resembles with regular Nokia lineup having a vertical camera setup above the fingerprint sensor on the rear and a metal-glass build.
The Nokia 6.1 Plus offers the same 5.8-inch IPS LCD panel on the front as that of Nokia X6 having FHD+ resolution of 1080 x 2280 pixels and 19:9 aspect ratio.
HMD Global has packed a Snapdragon 636 chipset under the hood that is paired with the only storage option of 4GB RAM and 64GB native storage. However, the storage may be expanded via the phone’s dedicated microSD card slot.
The photography department of the Nokia 6.1 Plus is furnished with dual lens setup on the rear comprising of a 16MP f/2.0 primary shooter paired with a secondary 5MP monochrome f/2.2 lens. Whereas, the front-facing camera sports facial recognition features with its 16MP f/2.0 aperture lens.
The Nokia 6.1 plus is a dual SIM supported device that runs on the Android One version of Android 8.1 Oreo, so it has a well-optimized software with no bloatware and faster than the Chinese Nokia X6. The battery size is pretty decent at 3060 mAh. The good thing is that it has Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0, and also has USB Type-C support.
