Following the launch of the Nokia X6 in China, HMD has a follow up released in Hong Kong exactly the same except for slight differences I will mention later. You might be thinking, why this move from HMD, the thing is the Nokia X6 is made for China while the Nokia 6.1 Plus is more of an international model. What differentiates the two apart from the reason mention before is that the Nokia 6.1 Plus will be running Android One while the Nokia X6 won’t.

Nokia 6.1 Plus

Design and DIsplay

HMD Global made the new smartphone with a notch, joining the list of the ever-increasing notched smartphones. The Nokia 6.1 Plus has a rather smaller notch compared to the others with a good use of the space up front.

Have it in mind that most smartphone makers are including a notch to increase the ground display covers which in this case serves its purpose. The rear has the dual camera and flash lined up toward the middle followed by the fingerprint reader beneath them.

The smartphone has a top notched screen as far as mid-range smartphones go and with minimal bezels hugging the screen.

Also, there’s the notch which is smaller compared to the others and a bit of small chin too with Nokia written on it. A resolution of 1080 x 2280 pixels grace the 5.8-inch screen and with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 reinforcement.

Battery and Camera

Smartphones like this one are not usually cut out for those long hours of use and the reason is their battery capacity is like in this case meagre.

Considering how most people engage their phone nowadays, the 3, 060mAh here might not just be enough to the end of the day. Not to worry though, the phone comes with Quick Charge 3.0, a fast way of getting the battery juice back up.

Taking pictures primarily now involves a dual camera on the rear side and the Nokia 6.1 Plus happens to be on that side of the optics.

The front camera is tied up at 16MP which is not a bad proposal at all considering you’ll get AI optimization and a nice portrait mode too. On the reverse, there are two cameras a 16MP main sensor and a 5MP secondary camera at the back.

Hardware and Software

There’s quite a solid setup in the Nokia 6.1 Plus made up of fairly powerful mid-range components. First is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor working hand in hand with an Adreno 509 GPU.

To make things work smoothly, you’re provided with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage expandable to 400GB. The smartphone will ship with Android One meaning you’ll be getting updates and security patches from Google directly.
