With Latest Android And Immersive Entertainment, Nokia 6 Launched Today

Nokia 7 May Launch in India by January End

HMD Global has today finally launched the much speculated Nokia 6 (2018) in China.

We will know more as soon once the device goes official on January 5. The smartphone will be available in Black and White color variants with Gold and Copper accents respectively.

Fingerprint: Embedded into the home button.

The most immediately noticeable aspect of the Nokia 6 (2018) is the relocation of its fingerprint sensor to the back.

HMD makes a big deal out of software and user experience - pure, secure and up to date - but the new Nokia 6 2018 still runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box which is a little disappointing. As suggested by the rumors the smartphone is likely to come featured with an HD IPS display, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of inbuilt storage.

Hardware wise, the imaging aspects of the 2018 Nokia 6 are kept the same as of the original Nokia 6. As opposed to some rumours, there's no 18:9 display on this smartphone, so you'll have to get by a 16:9 screen. It comes equipped with a 16MP rear camera along with an 8MP front-facing camera. Under the hood, the smartphone will be powered by Snapdragon 630 chipset along with 4GB of RAM.

The Nokia 6 isn't competing for top spots, at least not in the premium smartphone market.

Nokia 8 (2018) doesn't feature an edge-to-edge display, which is quite common on mid-budget and flagship smartphones these days. There's a microSD card slot for storage expansion up to 128GB.

According to the sources, the Nokia 6 2018 will boast of more or less the same design scheme as the original Nokia 6.

As far as the cameras and optics are concerned, the new Nokia 6 (2018) arrives with a 16-megapixel single rear camera with PDAF, a 1.0um sensor, besides other features like a f/2.0 aperture, and dual-tone LED flash.

What has changed is the addition of Nokia's Dual-Sight technology which can capture images from both the primary and secondary camera at the same time. The Nokia 6 (2018) now support Bluetooth 5.0, which is a great thing, as it is a lot faster than Bluetooth 4.2.
