Ahead of its August 21 launch in India, HMD Global has announced its upcoming smartphone, widely recognized as Nokia 6.1 Plus as a Flipkart exclusive. A video advertisement featuring musicians Shankar, Ehsaan, and Loy has been released by the e-commerce giant, marking preparations for Nokia 6.1 Plus launch.
