Introduction and Performance
The Nokia 6.1 Plus (X6) is a mid-range offering from the Finnish smartphone giants. The device sports a front and rear glass design enclosed in an aluminium frame which evokes a flagship-like look and feel. Thanks to the notch on the front, the display looks big. At the back, there is a fingerprint reader along with the dual camera setup.
As the Nokia 6.1 Plus is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 636 SoC which is paired with 4GB of RAM, it promises a seamless and lag-free smartphone experience. The device is also designed to aid multitasking and thanks to Adreno 509 GPU graphics on games look great.
Display and Battery
The Nokia 6.1 Plus features a 5.8-inch Full HD+ notched-screen. The notch on the display houses the frontal imaging unit along with the necessary sensors. Videos and games look great on the vivid, ultra bezel-less screen. The screen is further protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass from any unwanted scratches.
For power, there is a 3,060mAh battery which is touted to keep the lights on throughout the day. The battery on the smartphone also has support for fast charging which can refuel the juice in a jiffy.
Camera and Platform
In terms of imaging, the Nokia 6.1 Plus comes with dual 16+5-megapixel primary and a powerful 16-megapixel front-facing shooter. The rear sensors can shoot quality images and videos even in the dark. One can also take portrait shots with bokeh effects using the primary lens. The front-facing camera can be used for selfies and video calls.
The smartphone is based on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box and can be upgraded to Android P.
Storage and Connectivity
The Nokia 6.1 Plus is loaded with an internal storage space of 64GB which you can expand further using a microSD card up to 400GB. However, the handset does not ship with a dedicated microSD card slot and one has to use the second SIM slot (Hybrid SIM structure) to boost the storage.
