(UPDATE: It's a typo) Nokia 6.1 Plus spotted on Google's list of ARCore devices
Nokia 7 Plus
UPDATE: HMD Global's Chief Product Officer has confirmed in a tweet that the listing is simply a typo. The device listed should actually be the regular Nokia 6.1, although it's worth pointing out that this smartphone is already present on the list under the Nokia 6 (2018) name.
HMD Global has already confirmed that support for Google ARCore is already available on the Nokia 6.1, Nokia 7 Plus, and Nokia 8 Sirocco, but the official list appears to have revealed a whole new device that's under development.
Previously, we have seen leaked renders and certification listings surrounding the Nokia 5.1 Plus, but if the official ARCore device list is anything to go by, a Nokia 6.1 Plus is apparently in the works. This is the first time that name has popped up so, unsurprisingly, there is currently no information in regards to what it will feature. However, considering both the Nokia 7 Plus and the upcoming Nokia 5.1 Plus sport taller aspect ratios than their regular counterparts, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Nokia 6.1 Plus follow in the same footsteps, although it remains to be seen if HMD Global will opt for a display notch or not.
In regards to the internals, once again there is a lack of information at this point, although the smartphone is expected to sit between the Nokia 6.1 and Nokia 7 Plus. If accurate, it could mean the presence of a Snapdragon 636 on the inside and 4GB of RAM. Additionally, the choice of 32GB or 64GB of internal storage is highly likely. When it comes to the camera side of things, both the Nokia 5.1 Plus and Nokia 7 Plus sport dual-camera setups on the rear, suggesting the next Nokia device could also follow this trend. Nevertheless, the exact details such as the megapixel count remain unclear.
Due to the fact that this is the first time the Nokia 6.1 Plus name has appeared, the most likely scenario will see HMD Global unveil the device officially at IFA 2018 later this summer. Alternatively, though, the company could choose to launch the smartphone alongside the Nokia 5.1 Plus at a separate event, possibly as soon as next month.
