Back in August last year, HMD Global launched the Nokia 6.1 Plus in India. At the time, the phone was only made available in a 4GB RAM option, but now a new 6GB RAM option has also been listed on the Nokia website. The new variant, apart from its upgraded RAM, features identical specifications as the 4GB Nokia 6.1 Plus. The phones key highlights include a display notch, Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC, dual rear camera setup, and a 3,060mAh battery.
The Nokia 6.1 Plus 6GB RAM + 64GB storage option is priced in India at Rs. 18,499. The phone is already on sale in Black and Blue colour options on the Nokia website. It has also listed an offer for Airtel buyers, enabling them to get extra Rs. 2,000 (in the form of 40 vouchers of Rs. 50) cashback and 240 GB data (20GB data per month for 12 months on recharges of Rs. 199, Rs. 249, and Rs. 448). The Nokia 6.1 Plus 4GB RAM variant, which was launched with a price tag of Rs. 15,999, is also available to buy for Rs. 15,499. Flipkart doesn't list the 6GB variant for now.
