  • Nokia 6 (2018) fixes users' biggest complaints

It's 2018 and HMD Global seems to be taking the center stage with the release of a new Nokia handset. We're expecting a refresh at some point this year, and thanks to a Chinese retailer, we now have a clear look at the Nokia 6 (2018) in all of its glory. Dubbed Nokia 6 (2018), the handset is the first offering from the Finnish-based company. In addition, the stereo speakers found on the original Nokia 6 have been replaced by a single bottom-firing speaker.

On the connectivity end, the device features Bluetooth, GPS, WiFi, NFC and USB type-C port for charging.

Both phones have a 5.5-inch 1080 x 1920 screen, a 3,000mAh battery, a 16MP rear camera, an 8MP front-facing one, 32GB or 64GB of storage, a microSD card slot and now run Android Nougat. The new Nokia 6 is now available for preorder for ¥1,499 in China (about $230) for the 32GB model, but there's no indication about if and when it will be released in other markets. The Nokia 6 comes with a near stock Android like experience and runs on Android Nougat 7.1 with an update to 8.0 Oreo in the pipeline. The company is also using the same bold colour scheme around the camera module and the fingerprint scanner.

The phone comes with a non-removable 3,000mAh power battery.

Nokia 6 features a 5.5 inch IPS LCD Full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and a pixel density of 403 ppi.

The new Nokia 6 ships with the same cameras as last year's Nokia 6 which means that it carries a 16-megapixel camera on the rear with f/2.0 aperture, Phase Detection Autofocus and dualLED flash. The bezels appear to be trimmed down compared to last year's Nokia 6, and because of this, the capacitive navigation buttons have been moved on-screen and the fingerprint sensor is now on the back below the camera.

While the previous Nokia 6 smartphone carried an entry-level Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, the Nokia 6 (2018) now accommodates a better octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset clocked at 2.2GHz and paired with Adreno 508 GPU.

The report also claimed that the smartphone would be available for purchase exclusively through Amazon India at present. We can extend the storage further up to 128GB using the microSD card. The model boasts of a 3000mAh battery which supports fast charging. The smartphone is set to go on sale in China on January 10 with pre-orders going live now.
