Initially, the 7.1 Plus teaser was uploaded on Nokia Mobile India's Twitter account but it has been taken down. We saw phones like Nokia 6.1 Plus, which are built to give premium and compact look.
The fingerprint reader, however, is particular about my finger having to completely cover the sensor, or it will not work. Priced at Rs 5,999, the device will be available from October 24. On paper, the Nokia 7.1 sports a new but seemingly similar screen technology found in older Lumia devices and is paired with ZEISS Optics and a Lumia-like price point. The bottom, on the other hand, houses the speaker grill, a USB Type-C port, and another microphone. It features a 6-inch HD+ (1440 x 720 pixels) resolution IPS LCD 18:9 aspect ratio display with a 2.5D curved glass. The rear camera also supports live Bokeh feature. The Nokia 3.1 Plus pairs a MediaTek Helio P22 chipset with 2 or 3 GB of RAM and 16 or 32 GB of storage expandable via the MicroSD slot.
On the brighter side, the phone comes with dual rear cameras of 13MP+5MP, with the secondary sensor capturing depth information. That said, we are yet to test the performance of the camera in different lighting conditions and only then we will be able to reach a final conclusion. Nokia 5.1 Plus isn't meant to be a gaming phone but it has a Mali-G72 MP3 GPU that can handle casual games well. They run on Android One-powered Android Oreo OS. In keeping to its promised timeline, the manufacturer has released a beta version of Android Pie for the Nokia 6.1 Plus.
The update brings the new system navigation, settings menu, adaptive battery, and also October's security patch.
While HMD has rolled out Android Pie beta for Nokia 6.1 Plus, the company hasn't revealed when exactly will it roll-out the stable Pie update for this smartphone. Doesn't matter that the phone comes with a MediaTek Helio P60 chipset since the performance is nearly similar to a phone that comes with a Snapdragon 660 and that's a great thing to have at such a low price point.
The Nokia 5.1 Plus is a great smartphone for Rs. 10,999. Are you going to try out the Android Pie beta on your smartphone?
