Nokia 6.1 Plus global rollout commences, goes official in Hong Kong with Android One8
Remaining essentially identical to the Nokia X6 from China, the 6.1 Plus makes use of a large 5.8-inch display which, following in the footsteps of many other devices, boasts a notch up top that is home to the front-facing 16-megapixel camera. Switching over to the rear, a vertical dual-camera setup that features a main 16-megapixel camera and a secondary 5-megapixel sensor is placed in the center of the glass panel, while below this is a circular fingerprint scanner. In terms of the internal details, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 636 power the device and is coupled with 4GB of RAM. Also, 64GB of internal storage is present, although this can be further expanded via a microSD card of up to 400GB. Lastly, following in the footsteps of HMD Global’s other international devices, the Nokia 6.1 Plus ships with stock Android 8.1 Oreo as part of the Android One program.
Availability wise, the Nokia 6.1 Plus will be available to purchase in Hong Kong starting July 24 for just over $290 and will be offered in both black and white. Outside of this country, the Finnish company is yet to confirm its plans although it has recently teased a launch in Taiwan. Also, various reports claim that India and other Asian markets will receive the smartphone in August, while Europe looks set to see an arrival in September.
