If that pans out, the Nokia 7.1 Plus will be a compelling flagship alternative at a much cheaper price, so it's definitely something to keep an eye on. On Flipkart, the original price is quoted as 17,600 but the company is providing an extra discount of Rs 1,601 on the device. The device will come in Gloss Black, Gloss White, and Midnight Gloss Blue color options. Airtel is offering Rs 1800 cashback and up to 240GB data free of cost. The Android enthusiasm started with the original Motorola Droid, but the tech enthusiasm now covers just about everything.

The render, which the source claims to be official, seems legit and shares some similarities with numerous previously launched Nokia branded smartphones, especially Nokia X6.

Weighing 80.2MB in size, the update, like all OTA rollouts, will likely take some time to reach all Nokia 8 smartphones across the world. That seems like a substantial upgrade over the Nokia 7 Plus which uses the Snapdragon 660 chipset. Already there were rumors that the company is working on the next generation Nokia X7, but it has been confirmed and the key specifications are out as well. That means there is going to be a notch at the top with thinner bezels on the sides.

The iFixit teardown showed iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max used Intel's modem and communication chips instead of Qualcomm's hardware. Everything that required a fingerprint scan with Touch ID can use Face ID, including verifying your identity for Apple Pay.

The Nokia 6.1 Plus is equipped with a 5.8-inch FHD+ (2280 x 1080, 19:9) display, Snapdragon 636 processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB expandable storage loaded with Android One based on Android Oreo 8.1 platform. The device has a screen to body ratio of 81.5 per cent.

Also on the back is the reassuring Android One logo, which promises a good software experience. The device has the same old dual rear camera module and a notched display on the front.

There's 32GB of internal storage along with a microSD card slot that enables users to further expand the phone's storage capacity.
