HMD Global has launched Nokia 6.1 smartphone in the US pre-loaded with Android One with an assured two-year update and Snapdragon 630 processor. The Finland-based company had launched the phone as Nokia 6 (2018) in other regions at the recently concluded MWC 2018.
Even though the new phone features the same design, there are improvements such as the addition of Android One with assured updates for two years. The Nokia 6.1 is designed using metal unibody material carved out from a single piece of aluminum.
