The Nokia 6.1 Plus has enjoyed unprecedented success since its launch, selling out at record speed and receiving huge praise for its all-screen design with a full HD+ 19:9 screen ratio, which allows immersive content experience. Now, with the added Android 9 Pie update, fans can try out a whole new set of features, including App Actions, an exclusive feature on Android One devices and Google Pixel phones.
The Nokia 6.1 Plus is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor. Its 3,060mAh battery is given an added boost with the introduction of Adaptive Battery, which uses deep learning to understand usage patterns and prioritizes battery power on the most important apps.
Nokia smartphones that have received the Android 9 Pie update are also among the first non-Pixel devices to receive a taste of the Digital Wellbeing Beta Preview, which is now available for testing via Google Play for devices running on Android 9 Pie.
The new Digital Wellbeing features will help encourage breaks from screen time. New functionalities include highlighting device time on the phone’s dashboard, setting time limits for app usage, and Wind Down Mode, which fades the phone to grayscale and activates Do Not Disturb at a predetermined time in the evening.
Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 Mobile Platform, the Nokia 6.1 is more than 60 percent faster than its predecessor. The Nokia 6.1 is also equipped with enhanced Dual-Sight, ZEISS optics, USB-C fast-charging, Nokia spatial audio, and pure, secure and up-to-date Android. Selected to join Google’s Android One family, Nokia 6.1 users can get exclusive access to App Actions, a feature available only to Android One and Google Pixel devices. App Actions helps users get things done faster by predicting their next move and displaying the right action right away. Just like the Nokia 6.1 Plus, the Nokia 6.1’s already impressive battery life is further complemented by the Adaptive Battery on Android 9 Pie.
