Flipkart's landing page showcases a silhouette of the phone which aligns with that of Nokia 6.1 Plus, especially the volume and power keys on the right side. Further, #TwoOfAKind suggests the recently unveiled Nokia X5 may also be launched alongside the Nokia 6.1 Plus.
Given Nokia 6.1 Plus is a rebranded version of Nokia X6, it will retain the same specifications and design.
It will get a notch-based display, a prominent chin and a vertically positioned dual rear camera setup - a design seen on the Nokia X6.
It may feature a 5.8-inch full-HD+ (1080x2280 pixels) display with a 19:9 aspect ratio and 2.5D Gorilla Glass 3 protection.
Nokia 6.1 Plus will sport a dual rear-camera setup with a 16MP f/2.0 sensor, 1-micron pixels, and a 5MP monochrome sensor.
On the front, it will get a 16MP camera with f/2.0 aperture and 1-micron pixel sensor.
The phone may also get AI integration to offer optimized color contrast, depth of field, portrait lighting effects, face recognition, HDR and Nokia's Bothie feature.
The phone will be powered by Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor, paired with 4GB/6GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of inbuilt storage which is expandable up to 256GB via microSD card.
Moreover, the Nokia 6.1 Plus will run Android Oreo 8.1 stock version, supporting dual-SIM (Nano) cards and may pack a 3,060mAh battery that would support Quick Charge 3.0 technology.
Connectivity options on Nokia 6.1 Plus include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11a/c, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/A-GPS, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a USB Type-C port. Sensors onboard the phone include an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, digital compass, gyroscope, proximity sensor and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
The Nokia 6.1 Plus will be launched under Google's Android One program. This means this phone will get at least two years of software updates along with Google Play Protect and other updates.
Interestingly, the phone will take on Xiaomi's Mi A2 in India - another Android One smartphone.
Further, with the mid-range specs, Nokia 6.1 Plus should be priced at around Rs. 20,000.
