Following hot on the heels of Nokia and HMD Global announcing the Nokia 7.1 earlier this month, another handset with the Nokia logo is seeing the light of day beginning today.
The Android market is no stranger to smartphones that offer some high-profile features and specs, but manage to keep the price tag from skyrocketing. Nokia’s newest smartphone aims to be yet another example of this.
Earlier this year, Nokia launched the notched Nokia X6 in China which met with massive success in the country. Now, HMD Global has brought the same handset to India as the Nokia 6.1 Plus. The handset might share the same set of internals as Xiaomi’s massively popular Redmi Note 5 Pro, perhaps the best budget smartphone in India, but there’s a lot that differs between the two devices.
Nokia today unveiled the Nokia 6.1 Plus and Nokia 5.1 Plus in India. The handsets were previously launched in China as the Nokia X6 and X5.
HMD Global at an event in Russia today unveiled a minor refresh to some of its budget offerings: the Nokia 5.1, Nokia 3.1, and Nokia 2. The company’s last year models met with modest success and it is building on them by improving them in every aspect possible.
Nokia today launched the Nokia 8 Sirocco Edition, Nokia 6 (2018), and the Nokia 7 Plus in India. The Nokia 8 Sirocco Edition and the Nokia 7 Plus were first unveiled by the company at MWC 2018 in February.
Alongside the Nokia 1 and Nokia 6 (2018), the HMD Global-owned Nokia also unveiled the Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 8 Sirocco.

Nokia today unveiled the Nokia 1, its first Android Go (Oreo) smartphone. Additionally, the company also unveiled a 2018 variant of the Nokia 6 with powerful internals, quick charge, and an improved camera.
Earlier this year, the HMD-owned Nokia launched the Nokia 2 — a 99€ budget Android smartphone featuring only 1GB of RAM and running Android 7.1 Nougat. The handset was panned for its poor launch timing since despite being an ultra-low budget handset, it did not take advantage of Google’s Android Go program to possibly deliver better performance.
Nokia and HMD Global have been busy launching Android-based smartphones for months now, and while the Nokia 8 has served as the pair of company’s flagship for a little while now, it looks like a new contender is on the way.
