Nokia 6.1: Built to last and perform
Building on the success of its predecessor, the Nokia 6.1 packs even more powerful performance and great new features into a more compact, durable body. Powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 Mobile Platform, the Nokia 6.1 is over 60% faster than its award-winning predecessor. Also, now offering enhanced Dual-Sight, ZEISS optics, USB-C fast-charging, Nokia spatial audio and pure, secure and up-to-date Android Oreo™, the Nokia 6.1 has been selected by Google to join the Android One family.  

Taking the original’s precision craftsmanship to the next level the Nokia 6.1 combines a unibody, made from a solid block of 6000 series aluminium, with an 11-hour two-tone anodising and polishing process. And by uniting a sculpted 2.5D display with damage-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass, the Nokia 6.1’s compact and refined body is designed to stay beautiful for longer.

Built on the well-loved design of its predecessor, you can be sure that the Nokia 6.1 is durable enough to take life’s everyday knocks, all while being even more compact than the previous generation. But it’s not just about durability, the Nokia 6.1 has also got the style to match. It is finished using a unique two-tone anodising process to stand out from the crowd.

The original Nokia 6 received great feedback on its display, colours and brightness. The Nokia 6.1takes it even further by increasing the screen-to-body ratio with a sharp 5.5-inch full HD IPS laminated display, so you can enjoy a stunning immersive entertainment experience in a compact package.
