Earlier last month, HMD Global launched the ‘New Nokia 6’ in India with a price tag of ₹16,999. That New Nokia 6 is actually the Nokia 6 (2018) that was launched in China back in January this year. However, the company only launched the 3 GB RAM variant of the Nokia 6 (2018) in India. But now, HMD Global has finally launched the 4 GB RAM variant as well under the Nokia 6.1 moniker.
Last week, HMD Global launched this Nokia 6.1 in the US. There aren’t any differences between the hardware of the Nokia 6 (2018), the New Nokia 6, and the Nokia 6.1. HMD Global is launching the same phone in different regions under different names which could be confusing to many.
That said, the Nokia 6.1, or you can say the New Nokia 6 or Nokia 6 (2018), that has been launched in India, is powered by Snapdragon 630 SoC. HMD Global already launched the 3 GB RAM variant in India, and it has now launched the 4 GB RAM variant in the country.
The 3 GB RAM variant comes with 32 GB of storage, whereas the 4 GB RAM variant comes with 64 GB of storage. Having said that, you can also expand the storage up to 128 GB via microSD card if you want.
The Nokia 6.1 boasts uni-body construction and is made out of a single block of 6000 series aluminium. It features a 5.5-inch Full-HD display, and, runs Android Oreo out-of-the-box. The Nokia 6.1 is a part of Android One, hence, you get timely software updates for a period of two years.
The Nokia 6.1 features a 16 MP camera at the back with ZEISS optics, and has an 8 MP camera on the front for selfies and video calls. It also has a fingerprint scanner at the back, and, it packs a 3000 mAh battery that keeps the show running.
