HMD Global-controlled Nokia recently revealed that the Nokia 6.1 Plus will be introduced in India on August 21. The 6.1 Plus comes as the global version of the Nokia X6 which was unveiled in China a couple of months back. Ahead of the launch, Nokia has clashed the Nokia 6.1 In addition called Nokia 6 (2018) price tag in India.
The Nokia 6.1 was unveiled in China in January this year and was later launched for the global market at the Mobile Game Congress (MWC 2018) in February. The company early launched the 3GB RAM version of the product in India in April with a value tag of Rs. 16999 ($261). That was early followed in Might by a 4GB RAM variant offered at Rs. 18,999. Already, the value tags of both models have got up to Rs. 1,500 off. Subsequent, the 3GB RAM version of the Nokia 6.1 now costs Rs. 15,499 on Nokia India’s website while the 4GB RAM model is in the world at Rs. 17,499.
The price reduction is likely directly related to the launch of the Nokia 6.1 Plus what is expected to feature a Sd 636 chipset and 4GB / 6GB RAM. The Nokia X6 which will launch as Nokia 6.1 Plus was announced in China for 1,299 yuan (around Rs. 13,800) for the 4GB RAM+ 32GB storage variant, 1,499 yuan (around Rs. 16,000) for the 4GB RAM + 64GB memory version, while the 6GB RAM + 64GB memory variant goes for 1,699 yuan (about Rs. 18,100). For comparison, those price points are too close to what the Nokia 6.1 versions are valued in India. This may have necessitated the generous price slash. However, we expect the Nokia 6.1 Plus to be priced higher than which it sells for in China.
