Nokia 6.1 Plus, Nokia 5.1 Plus officially launched


Nokia 6.1 Plus mobile and Nokia 5.1 Plus have officially launched in India today. HMD Global, the company behind the Nokia branded phones, hosted an event in Delhi, to introduce its latest mid-range flagship phone in the market. Nokia 6.1 Plus and Nokia 5.1 Plus sport a notched display with a 19:9 aspect ratio and comes with a dual-rear camera as well.

In contrast, Nokia 6.1 and Nokia 5.1 which were launched earlier in India, do not have a dual camera at the back. Nokia 6.1 Plus and Nokia 5.1 Plus will be a Flipkart exclusive device. Both will sold on the website as well. The Nokia 6.1 Plus will cost Rs 15,999(roughly $230) in India, while the Nokia 5.1 Plus’ price will only be revealed in September when it goes on sale.

As the name suggests, the Nokia 5.1 Plus, formerly known as the X5, is a slightly humbler phone than the Nokia 6.1 Plus, packing a MediaTek Helio P60 processor and 3GB RAM, compared to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC and 4 gigs of memory on the 6.1 Plus.

Nokia 6.1 Plus Specsheet

Interestingly, the 5.1 Plus comes with a considerably wider screen cutout, while the 19:9 displays themselves both measure around 5.8 inches in diagonal. However, there’s an important difference in resolution, as the Nokia 6.1 Plus delivers a Full HD+ pixel count (2280 x 1080), whereas the 5.1 Plus settles for modest HD+ numbers (1520 x 720).

The two devices have “secure and up-to-date” Android Oreo software in common, courtesy of Google’s Android One program, as well as AI camera enhancements, although the 6.1 Plus features a superior 16MP primary rear-facing shooter. The Nokia 5.1 Plus combines 13 and 5MP cams, the latter of which is also found on the back of the 6.1 Plus for cool depth effects.

The Nokia 6.1 Plus is the better selfie taker as well, thanks to a 16MP front-facing snapper, compared to a 13MP imaging sensor housed by the larger notch on the 5.1 Plus. Both devices look surprisingly premium for their price bracket, with 2.5D curved glass on both the front and back, and something tells us we won’t have to wait long to see them released in Western Europe.
