Though it’s a budget-friendly device, but that doesn’t mean it lacks camera features. It comes with 16MP + 5MP dual rear sensor with f/2.0 + f/2.2 aperture respectively. Both rear sensors are powered by some nifty AI tricks to improve your overall photography experience. The camera also supports several dazzling features i.e. LED flash, PDAF (Phase Detection Autofocus), Gyro, EIS, DHR, Panorama, 1080@30fps video recording and more. Video calls and selfies, on the other hand, both are assisted by 16MP front-facing camera.

In terms of power, this beauty is backed by 3060mAh non-removable battery based on a latest Li-lon technology. Performance-wise, it keeps users online all day long thanks to its power saving mode. A fast charging feature has also got it covered which juices it up from 0% to 100% just in 1 hour. This isn’t the end of the tale. Let’s find out more in our quick Nokia 6.1 Plus review.
