Nokia 6.1 Plus is already the brand’s third phone officially updated to Android 9 Pie

Nokia 6.1 Plus is already the brand’s third phone officially updated to Android 9 Pie : HMD Global, the 2016-founded company behind the resurgence of the Nokia brand, may not have the resources to take on Samsung or Huawei in terms of global smartphone shipments, but when it comes to major software updates, the hierarchy is overturned.

Unfortunately, unlike the “regular” Nokia 6.1, the 6.1 Plus is not officially available in the US. Initially released under the China-exclusive X6 name, the 5.8-incher expanded to a number of international territories in recent months, offering a relatively small notch, respectable Snapdragon 636 processor, 4GB RAM, dual rear-facing cameras, and a single 16MP selfie shooter on a budget.

If you can buy the Nokia 6.1 Plus, now’s definitely the time to do so, with everything from Adaptive Battery tricks to Google Lens integration, and new gesture-based navigation included in this latest Android 9 Pie update.
