HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, announced today the availability of the Nokia 6.1 Plus in Egypt, a stunning, contemporary smartphone with an immersive, all-screen design. With smart storytelling features and a display that’s perfect for watching videos, messaging friends and catching up on social feeds, the Nokia 6.1 Plus helps users stand out from the crowd and tell a story. The Nokia 6.1 Plus joins the Android One family of Nokia smartphones.

Tamer El Gamal, General Manager – Egypt, HMD Global, commented:
“Our fans in Egypt love two things dearly: entertainment and impressive design. After the success we witnessed for both the Nokia 6 and the Nokia 6.1 in the Egyptian market, we are pleased to once again put the user experience first and introduce a device using the same formula. The Nokia 6.1 Plus is a stunning and powerful device that makes streaming and gaming truly immersive and engaging experiences.”

Stand out all-screen design and performance
Built with the reassuring quality expected from a Nokia smartphone, the Nokia 6.1 Plus provides a bigger screen experience without a bigger smartphone design thanks to its notched 19:9 screen ratio. Its 5.8-inch Full HD+ 19:9 screen ratio with 96% colour gamut allows for a vivid viewing experience, making the Nokia 6.1 Plus a perfect smartphone for enjoying immersive content experiences. Beautifully crafted to the exacting standards expected from a Nokia phone, the Nokia 6.1 Plus is encased in Corning® Gorilla® Glass on the front of the phone’s luxuriously curved surface.

Behind the elegant looks, the latest Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 636 Mobile Platform is 40% faster than the previous iteration making it great for streaming and gaming. The platform delivers first-class graphics and gaming performance alongside battery efficiency enhancements so users can enjoy audio and video for longer. Together with optimised hardware and USB type-C fast charging, users can create, edit and multitask effortlessly, without having to worry about battery life.

Powerful storytelling
The Nokia 6.1 Plus puts advanced imaging features at the forefront. Powered by a 16MP/5MP dual sensor rear camera that delivers excellent sharpness and detail, the phone brings photos to life with HDR, which delivers even better vibrancy and contrast, creating a feeling of greater depth. With its rear depth sensing imaging, it’s easy to capture professional style images using selectable bokeh blur, which can also be edited after the picture is taken.

The perfectly balanced 16MP front camera allows for highly detailed, mirror-like selfies, while AI enhancements on both cameras simultaneously make #Bothie mode more intriguing, another first made available on a Nokia smartphone. The Nokia 6.1 Plus has AI enhancements that bring stories to life with fun filters, masks and our 3D personas, as well as the portrait lighting that adds captivating lighting effects to images.

Pure, secure and up-to-date, reinforced with Android One commitment
The Nokia 6.1 Plus joins the Android One family of Nokia smartphones, offering an experience designed by Google that is smart, secure and simply amazing. The Nokia 6.1 Plus will stay fresh over time with three years of monthly security patches and two years of guaranteed OS updates after launch. As with all Nokia smartphones in the Android One programme, it offers more battery and storage space out of the box thanks to a carefully curated set of pre-loaded apps. It also packs the latest Google services like the Google Assistant and Google Photos with free unlimited high-quality photo storage.

Availability
The Nokia 6.1 Plus comes in three colour options - Gloss Black, Gloss White and Gloss Midnight Blue - and is now available across all Nokia distributors at a starting price of 4,999 LE.
