With its larger screen, faster processor and sharper dual-lens camera, the Nokia 6.1 Plus is a significant upgrade over its predecessor.

You can't fault HMD Global for its dedication. Since acquiring the Nokia brand back in 2016, the Finnish mobile phone company has rolled out no fewer than eight different handsets spanning the entire breadth of the smartphone market. From the budget-friendly Nokia 1 to the top-of-the-line Nokia 8 Sirocco, the second coming of Nokia is in full swing.

What stands out most about the Nokia renaissance, though, is HMD Global's focus on iterative design. In the year and change since it first launched its new Nokia handsets, it has taken onboard critical and customer feedback and released improved versions of many of its smartphones. Thus, the Nokia 6.1 Plus. An upgraded take on the Nokia 6.1 which itself was a refresh of the original Nokia 6, the Nokia 6.1 Plus brings a slew of new features including a larger screen, a more versatile dual-lens camera and faster guts for a smoother user experience. Despite all these improvements, the Nokia 6.1 Plus remains a budget-friendly mid-range device, with a price tag of just $379.
