Nokia X6’s global launch began last month as Nokia 6.1 Plus. Since then, the phone is being launched in a number of markets outside China in a phased manner. On that note, the handset’s India launch is still awaited. And the wait could finally be over this month.
Today, Nokia has sent out invites for an event scheduled on August 21. The invite reads “HMD Global invites you to an exclusive gathering for the next big unveil”. Of course, what is going to be unveiled remains a secret. But it wouldn’t too inaccurate for us to think that it could indeed be the Nokia 6.1 Plus.
Nokia enjoys a huge fan following in India and even with all its ups and downs, the company is considered quite legendary. Suffice it to say that people are excited about seemingly any good phone from the Finnish company.
The reason we believe that the Nokia 6.1 Plus is the one most likely to be unveiled is because its support page has already gone live in India. Furthermore, there’s also the possibility of Nokia 5.1 Plus, Nokia 2.1 and Nokia 8110 4G to be unveiled as well.
The most interesting part of all this is the pricing. We are wondering how Nokia will position the Nokia 6.1 Plus in the market. It has a Snapdragon 636 processor which means it can’t be priced much higher. At the same time, the Nokia 6.1 starts at a price of Rs 16,999 and on that basis, the Nokia 6.1 Plus will have to be priced higher.
We wait for August 21 to unravel the mystery! Keep watching this space for more information on this as well as on other upcoming smartphones in 2018.
