According to a report, Nokia 6.1 Plus might launch next in Taiwan and later on in India as well. The Nokia X6 or the 6.1 Plus, is the first Nokia smartphone to sport a notch on the display. Moreover, its support page recently went live on the official Nokia website, which hinted at the device’s imminent launch in India. And we are eagerly waiting for this device to launch in India.
