Nokia Mobile has today launched the Nokia 6.1 Plus and Nokia 5.1 Plus in the Indian market. This makes India the first market where the Nokia 5.1 Plus will be available, other than China where it sells as Nokia X5. Similarly, India is the first major market where the Nokia 6.1 Plus is launched after the initial launch in China as Nokia X6.
With today’s launch, Nokia has actually surprised everyone when it comes to the pricing. The Nokia 6.1 Plus directly competes with some of the best selling phones from Chinese companies, including Huawei and Xiaomi.
Price and availability
You probably already know about the specifications of the Nokia 6.1 Plus and the Nokia 5.1 Plus. So, we’ll first get to the price and then look at the specifications, if you still have to.
Nokia 5.1 Plus: The pricing for the Indian market is not yet announced. The global indicative pricing is EUR 199, but the INR pricing will be significantly lesser. The device will start selling in September.
Nokia 6.1 Plus: The phone is priced Rs. 15,999 in the Indian market. It will be available for purchase from 30th of August on Flipkart.com and pre-orders have already started on Nokia online store. The global pricing of the Nokia 6.1 Plus is set at 250 Euros and it will only be available in selected markets.
Do note that these phones are not announced to be made available via the retail stores or the offline market.
