India’s telecomm regulatory agency could ban the Apple iPhone from India’s wireless networks

In an effort to reduce the number of spam calls that smartphone users in India must put up with, the TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Agency of India) has made some changes. One of the new regulations requires the installation of an anti-spam app called DND (now at version 2.0) on all smartphones in the country. But Apple will not allow the TRAI developed app to be included in the App Store, citing privacy fears. The app obtains phone and messaging logs belonging to a smartphone user, which explains Apple’s reluctance to list it.
Since the regulatory agency has no …

Nokia 6.1 plus launched in Hong Kong w/ Android One for 2288 HKD

Nokia Mobile has today launched the Nokia X6 as the Nokia 6.1 Plus in the Hong Kong market. It seems the previous report about the Nokia X6’s Hong Kong launch was extremely accurate. The device can be called the successor to the Nokia 6.1 with a larger (and notched) display.

Product codes: The international variant seems to carry the following product codes – TA-1103, TA-1083, TA-1116. There will be minor variations across the product codes such as for carrier bands.

Similar hardware + Android One

Nokia has made the few alterations as we expected from the global device. The Nokia 6.1 plus runs on Android One software (Android Oreo 8.1). The hardware is all the same. There is the same glass-sandwich design with a 5.8-inch 19:9 display on the front, both wrapped around a solid aluminum frame. The dual 16MP + 5MP cameras sit on the back of the device.

The headphone jack is intact, so is the fingerprint scanner at the back. The phone is powered by the Snapdragon 636 processor and comes with 64GB of onboard storage. Unfortunately, NFC support is not included. Nokia has also skipped the blue color option in the Hong Kong. The device only comes in black and white.

Key hardware specifications

  • Display: 2.5D 5.8-inch FHD+ display – 432PPI with Gorilla Glass 3 protection
    19.9 display aspect ratio | 93% body covered in glass
  • Primary camera: 16MP + 5MP dual real camera with HDR and EIS
  • Front camera: 16MP front camera for selfies
  • Processor: Snapdragon 636 processor
  • Storage: 64GB storage with 4GB RAM | Expendable to 400GB using MicroSD
  • Security: Face recognition, fingerprint scanner
  • AI powered camera for enchaining the image by understanding the scene
  • Connectivity: USB Type-C port, Bluetooth 5.0,
  • Battery: 3060mAh
  • Colors: Black, White

Price & Availability

Nokia is only bringing the Nokia 6.1 plus in 4GB + 64 GB option to the Hong Kong. On the other hand, they offer the X6 in different storage and RAM variations.

The device will retail for $2288 (HKD) | ~$292 (USD) | ~Rs. 20,00 (INR). It will be available for purchase from Tuesday, 24th of July.

The price is bumped up from what we have seen for the Nokia X6 in China. Pricing wise, the device somehow manages to find its spot between the Nokia 6.1 and Nokia 7 plus.

Some photos

Here are some images (from Engadget), shared in a Nokia Group. The Android One logo looks elegant sitting under the glass. The good thing is that we no longer see the Designed by HMD Global and other details, hence making the branding look simple and clear.
