With smart storytelling features and a display that is perfect for watching videos, messaging friends and catching up on social feeds, the Nokia 6.1 Plus will help users to stand out from the crowd and tell their story. The Nokia 6.1 Plus joins the Android One family of Nokia smartphones.
Head of Marketing, HMD Global, Olumide Balogun, said: “Early this year, we introduced some devices and our fans around the world made it very clear that they wanted to see more of the same from us. This excitement for cutting-edge smartphones with contemporary designs prompted us to introduce a device using the same formula. We are launching the Nokia 6.1 Plus because you asked for it and we’re excited to continue delivering the first-class experiences and quality expected from a Nokia smartphone.”
Built with the reassuring quality you expect of a Nokia smartphone, the Nokia 6.1 Plus gives you a bigger screen experience without a bigger smartphone design thanks to its notched 19:9 screen ratio. Its 5.8-inch Full HD+ 19:9 screen ratio with 96% colour gamut allows for a vivid viewing experience, making the Nokia 6.1 Plus a perfect smartphone for enjoying immersive content experiences. Beautifully crafted to the exacting standards expected from a Nokia phone, the Nokia 6.1 Plus is encased in Corning Gorilla Glass on the front of the phone’s luxuriously curved surface for the ultimate feel in your hand.
Behind the elegant looks, the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 Mobile Platform is 40% faster than the previous iteration making it great for streaming and gaming. The platform delivers first-class graphics and gaming performance alongside battery efficiency enhancements, so users can enjoy the audio and video for even longer. Together with optimised hardware and USB type-C fast charging, one can create, edit and multitask effortlessly, without having to worry about whether the battery will last through the day.
The Nokia 6.1 Plus puts advanced imaging features in the palm of one’s hand. Powered by a 16MP/5MP dual-sensor rear camera that delivers excellent sharpness and detail, one can also bring your photos to life with HDR which delivers even better vibrancy and contrast, creating a feeling of greater depth.
With its rear depth sensing imaging, it can capture professional style images using selectable bokeh blur, which can also be edited after the picture is taken.
Capture highly detailed, mirror-like selfies with the perfectly balanced 16MP front camera and elevate your Bothie game with AI enhancements on both cameras simultaneously, another first made available on a Nokia smartphone. Use the innovative Dual-Sight feature to live-stream your Bothies directly to social media to share both sides of your story in real time. The Nokia 6.1 Plus has AI enhancements that bring your stories to life with fun filters, masks and our 3D personas, as well as the portrait lighting that adds captivating lighting effects to your images.
