As expected, HMD Global has announced the next-generation Nokia 6, dubbed as Nokia 6 2018, at a press event during Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona. The phone was originally made available in the Chinese market earlier this year.
According to the company, the device is touted to be more compact with a durable body. The phone is not a huge departure from the previous-generation model, but there are few meaningful changes that could improve the experience. The company claims that the smartphone is over 60 percent faster compared to its predecessor.
The phone comes with a 5.5-inch 2.5D display with ‘damage-resistant’ Corning Gorilla Glass on top. It features Full HD display with 1920 x 1080 pixels screen resolution, having a pixel density of 401ppi.
Under the hood, the device is powered by Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon 630 processor clocked at 2.2GHz, along with 4GB RAM and two variants on the internal storage — 32GB and 64GB. There’s also a microSD card slot, which enables users to further expand the phone’s storage capacity.
There’s a 16-megapixel camera on the back which has f/2.0 aperture, phase detection autofocus, and dual-LED flash. The phone also features an 8-megapixel front-facing camera with a 1.12um sensor and f/2.0 aperture for taking selfies and video calling. There’s a fingerprint sensor placed on the back panel for added security.
On the connectivity front, the phone offers hybrid Dual SIM slot, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v5, GPS, USB Type-C port, 3.5mm audio jack, FM Radio. It also features dual speakers, dual smart amplifiers, and Dolby Atmos.
The phone is running on Android Oreo operating system. Given that it’s an Android One device, there is no bloatware on the phone as well as no custom user interface from the company. The Nokia 8 2018 is powered by a 3,000mAh non-removable battery — same as its predecessor.
The Nokia 6 2018 will be available in three color options — Black/Copper, White/Iron, and Blue/Gold. The phone will go on sale in April this year, with an average retail price of 279 Euros.
