Widevine L1 supported

I couldn't believe Nokia got Widevine L1 supported on Nokia 6.1+ which is necessary for playing HD content over Netflix or Amazon Prime. Kudos!!

It's understandable that Nokia 6.1+ is a bit costly than offerings from other manufacturers but minor yet very important features make up for that. Phones like Poco F1 seem dumb when you have 1080p+ screen but you can't go up 540p.

    well that's not entirely true...still Nokia 6.1+ is pretty good phone for the price...Well m not that excited for any new Nokia phone coz m left with only one kidney. Smoker's kidney don't sell for much :D
  • I will buy another Nokia after 2-3 years... enjoying Nokia Android one combination....happy with my 6.1 plus...my friends also wanna buy but out of stock currently
  • also. FYI. Widevine L1 integration is complete free. Not only Poco. No Xiaomi Phones has it. idk why tho

    yes, manufacturers don't have to pay Widevine anything but the phones need to pass through the certification process which I assume takes time so some manufacturers just skip and focus on other important aspects.

  • I just heard of DRM and was looking all over the internet. And it is a great feeling to know that my phone does support DRM L1. I just had to get this phone and I did, no regrets whatsoever. Thanks Nokia for not being cheap. Nokia and Andriod One - Still a better love story than Twilight.

  • Any problem with mic??


  • Akash, I have not faced any issues with the mic as of yet. In fact over a call people are saying they can hear me more clearly. Only issue I'd say is the camera. But I can ignore that as I don't do much photography with my phone. The camera is decent enough to click good pictures.
  • Just adding one more service, which other phones with same specs like note 5 pro does not support is arcore by google, and 6.1 plus support it.
  • My Nokia 8 TA-1012 has L3 :(

    No the thing is I saw someone else here who has the same TA-1012 device who has widevine L1. So i don't understand WTF is going on.
  • Even though 6.1 plus got DRM L1 certification, It doesn't support Full hd of 1080p streaming..
    I'm coming from OnePlus 6, bought it since it got Stolen..
    I'm using Prime Video & Netflix earlier also, Even though it's L1 certification is not much different from L3
    L3 phones steams at 540p max 6 .1 plus probably at 720p max or even Low..
    OnePlus phones for HDR compilant having 10 bit colour gamut, NETFLIX take full advantage Of you for Premium Subscription.. This one looks rather Dull
