HMD Global’s latest budget phone delivers in the areas that matter.

HMD Global unveiled the Nokia X6 earlier this year in China, and the device is now making its way to global markets as the Nokia 6.1 Plus. The phone is now official in India, and will be available up for sale starting August 30 from Nokia’s website and Flipkart.

The Nokia 6.1 Plus features a 5.8-inch all-screen front with a notched 19:9 panel, and is powered by the Snapdragon 636. It also comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage as standard, and has 12MP + 5MP cameras at the back and a 16MP shooter up front. Other specs include Wi-Fi ac, FM radio, Bluetooth 5.0, and a 3060mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0.

HMD is doubling down on production capacity in India, and is projecting a 2x increase in revenue from the country as a result. The Finnish manufacturer is also starting to aggressively price its devices in the country, with the Nokia 6.1 Plus set to go on sale from August 30 for just ₹15,999 ($ 230). The pricing will definitely make the Nokia 6.1 Plus an attractive option for buyers in this segment.

We’ll have much more to talk about the Nokia 6.1 Plus in the coming weeks, but for now, be sure to take a look at our detailed preview:
