Nokia 6.1 Plus set to hit India on August 21

Nokia 6.1 Plus

HMD Global began teasing the arrival of the Nokia 6.1 Plus last week and it’s now sending out invites for an event on August 21. The brand isn’t confirming which handsets it’s planning to launch that day, but there are a couple of likely candidates.

The strongest one is the Nokia 6.1 Plus, known as the Nokia X6 in China. Both are the same phone, but the former is part of Google’s Android One program and the latter runs the brand’s software. There’s also a price difference between the two.

The Nokia X6 goes for CNY 1299 (roughly Rs 13062) for its 4GB/32GB variant, CNY 1499 (approx Rs 15073) for its 4GB/64GB model, and CNY 1699 (around Rs 17087) for its 6GB/64GB version. The Nokia 6.1 Plus which was released in Hong Kong costs HKD 2288 (about Rs 20010) for its sole 4GB/64GB option.

It’s not clear at the moment which memory variants HMD Global will bring to India. The brand may also launch the Nokia 5.1 Plus in the country. The device was unveiled last month as the Nokia X5 in China. It hasn’t been released internationally yet, but there are plenty of leaks suggesting it’s about to break free soon.
