For those who are waiting for Nokia 6.1 Plus in India can take a breath of relief as Nokia started sending out invites for August 21’s ‘big unveil’. HMD Global, the owner of Nokia, hasn’t actually confirmed anything about Nokia 6.1 Plus, also known as Nokia X6 in China. But there is a high chance that this device might finally hit the Indian shore. Previously, the support page for the Nokia 6.1 Plus went live on the brand’s official Indian website indicating its imminent launch.
Nokia 6.1 Plus or X6 has received great acclaim not only in China but also in other markets. Looking at the immense success of the device, the brand decided to make it available in the global market too. Citing the upcoming launch event and how Nokia 6.1 Plus went live on the Nokia India website, we can say that it’s actually happening. Nokia will also launch an 8110 4G, Nokia 2.1 and/or Nokia 5.1 Plus.
Now it could be a mistake that Nokia 6.1 Plus went live on Nokia India, isn’t it? But as we read the user guide attached to it, we came across a statement where it says “Your mobile device is also designed to meet the requirements for exposure to radio waves established by the India Department of Telecommunications. These requirements set a SAR limit of 1.6W/kg averaged over one gram of tissue”. Isn’t that intriguing?
Nokia 6.1 Plus specifications
Before it actually unveils on August 21, let’s have a look at its specifications. The Nokia 6.1 Plus has a 5.8” IPS LCD 1080 x 2280 display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The device has a sandwiched design with front and rear glass and aluminum frame and most excitingly, a notch. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor clocked at octa-core with Adreno 509 with an built-in storage of 32GB and 64GB with RAM variants available of 4GB and 4/6GB respectively.
The global variant has a 16MP with f/2.0 aperture and 1.0 micrometer with PDAF + 5MP with f/2.4 aperture and a 1.12micrometer depth sensor rear dual-camera setup that takes decent photos, however, the Chinese variant doesn’t have an impressive camera setup which could be discouraging if Nokia decides to use the same snappers for the Indian market. The front selfie camera sports a 16MP sensor with an aperture of f/2.0 and 1.0micrometer pixel size which remain a norm in most mid-range smartphones. The phone will be available with a 3,060 mAh Li-Ion battery and three color variants i.e. Blue, White, and Black.

Nokia 2.1 which is expected to unveil too has a price tag around Rs. 6,999 although it could be higher. The device has a Snapdragon 425 quad-core processor with 1GB RAM and 8GB of internal storage.

The 5.86” IPS LCD display has a 720 x 1520 pixel resolution with new 19:9 aspect ratio.

The device runs on a slow Mediatek Helio P60 octa-core processor with Mali-G72 MP3 GPU. It is available in 32GB/3GB RAM and 64GB/4GB RAM variants. We also know that the device sports a 13MP rear snapper with PDAF and an aperture of f/2.0 and a secondary depth sensor of 5MP while the front camera hosts an 8MP sensor with an aperture of f/2.2.
