Nokia 6.1 with Snapdragon 630 SoC and 4GB RAM Launched; Check Out the Features and Price

HMD Global, the licensee of Nokia has launched a new smartphone for the US market. Dubbed as Nokia 6.1, it is an upgraded version of the Nokia 6 that was launched last year and made its debut at the Mobile World Congress 2018 as the Nokia 6 (2018).


The Nokia 6.1 comes with the same design to last year’s Nokia 6 but with better specifications under the hood. It is also the cheapest device from HMD Global to support the Android One program and comes with 2 years of guaranteed support and updates from the company. The phone features a metal unibody design and the company has claimed that it has been crafted from a single block of aluminum.

Talking about the specifications, the Nokia 6.1 sports a 5.5-inch full HD IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1920 X 1080 pixels and a 16:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC under the hood which is an improvement from the Snapdragon 430 SoC found on last year’s Nokia 6 model.

The device comes with 4GB RAM support and 64GB of inbuilt storage that is further upgradable with the help of a microSD memory chip. On the optics front, the Nokia 6.1 features a 16-megapixel rear camera with an LED flash and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera for taking selfies.

Connectivity options in the smartphone include dual-band WiFi, 4G LTE, Bluetooth, NFC, and GPS. It also features a fingerprint sensor that has been mounted on the rear panel and a USB Typ-C port for charging. The smartphone is powered by a 3000 mAh battery under the hood and that also supports the fast charging feature.

As far as the price is concerned, the Nokia 6.1 comes with a price tag of $269 in the US and will go on sale on Amazon and Best Buy from May 6, 2018.

To recall, the older Nokia 6 that was launched last year was available in the US at a price of $229 on Amazon. It seems that HMD Global has increased the price marginally due to the improved specifications of the upgraded model of the original Nokia 6.
