16 August 2018

HMD’s teaser campaign heats up as the Nokia Mobile India Twitter account promises the “most awaited phone”. The campaign operates under the #BringItOn hashtag and has been building anticipation for the August 21 event.

The Nokia 6.1 Plus is the most likely device to be featured, though HMD hasn’t confirmed anything officially. The support page has been up on the Nokia India site since late June.

The phone initially launched in May as the Nokia X6, a China exclusive, but then went global as the Nokia 6.1 Plus in mid-July. It’s the first notched Nokia, there’s a piece missing from its 5.8” 1080p+ screen (19:9). It’s powered by a Snapdragon 636 chipset and boasts a 16+5MP dual camera on the back and a 16MP selfie camera in the notch.
