Nokia 6.1 Plus

Checkout Nokia 6.1 Plus price, full specifications, pros and cons, comparison with other phones under Rs 20,000.

Under Rs 20,000 there is a serious competition going on now. Until now I used to advise people who have $350 to $400 (Rs 20K to Rs 25K) budget, to go with OnePlus 6 by adding another $100 or $150 extra but things change pretty quickly. First, the Xiaomi Mi A2 priced at Rs 16,999 lived up to it’s expectations and then just a couple of days ago, Xiaomi’s sub-brand Poco unveiled Poco F1. It’s the cheapest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 smartphone and at Rs 20,999, it’s sure to stay in the market for this year-end atleast.

While Samsung, LG and Sony devices can be easily neglected in selecting a best phone under $300 to $400, there is a serious competition between Xiaomi Mi A2, Realme 1, Poco F1 and now HMD Global joins the race with Nokia 6.1 Plus launch in India.

HMD is quickly expanding its product portfolio this year and there is Nokia 9 around as well. Before it’s announced there is already Nokia 5.1, Nokia 2.1, Nokia 3.1. If you are a fan of stock Android version, then you will surely love Mi A2 and Nokia 6.1 Plus is another such device.

Talking about the Nokia 6.1 Plus, it’s perhaps the HMD’s well designed phone inspired by Nokia 8 Sirocco. 5.8-inch display with 19:9 ratio, 403 PPI pixel density and a top notch. It has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on the back with 2.5D Curved which blends perfectly with the metal frame.

Nokia 6.1 Plus interface with clean software with Android 8.1 Oreo version keeps the device bloatware-free but also provides performance boost. Falling in line with Android One program, the device is bound to get the Android 9.0 Pie update and also the Android Q update in future. Almost all Nokia phones will get Pie update.
