Nokia 6 2018 Revealed, Featuring Major Upgrades

09 January 2018

A 3000mAh battery is present in this new Nokia 6 (2018).

HMD Global has also addressed the complaint regarding the underpowered CPU. On the front, we can observe the 8-megapixel camera along with f/2.0 and wide-angle lens. The most visible change, however, is the relocation of the front-facing fingerprint scanner to the back. We can extend the storage further up to 128GB using the microSD card. The 2018 Nokia 6 goes for a more modern setup, with on-screen navigation buttons and a rear fingerprint reader, just like all the flagship phones. This phone has most of the same specifications as Nokia 6 of previous year.

The display is once again 5.5-inches with a resolution of 1920 x 1080, and although it's not directly mentioned, our guess is that Nokia will once again use an LED panel rather than AMOLED.

The phone is available only in China and is listed by Suning for pre-orders. The device has a USB Type-C port drilled at the base instead of the micro-USB port found on its predecessor.

The upcoming XA2 is rumored to boost its screen size from five inches to 5.2-inches while maintaining its 1080p screen resolution. Coming to the third phone - which is the Xperia L2 - Sony may not include Oreo - instead, the phone may come with Android Nougat.

Though design language largely remains the same as Nokia 6, HMD Global has brought in a few aesthetic changes to Nokia 6 (2018). It will help the mobile to have the fast charging. The Nokia 6 (2018) offers a strong performance-to-price ratio, which we expect to set the tone for the year.

Elsewhere, the speaker setup on-board the original Nokia 6 came with dual amplifiers and support for Dolby Atmos sound technology.

In terms of specs, the new Nokia 6 (2018) supports dual-SIM (Nano) and runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box. Seeing the first roll out to the Chinese market, the handset is priced at CNY 1,499 for 32GB storage variant and CNY 1,699 for the 64GB memory version. Moreover, the phone will be released on January 10. One fun new feature is the "dual view" camera, which can snap a picture from the front and back sensors at the same time and will stitch the two pictures together, side by side.

The company is mainly focusing on offering affordable devices - some being just basic cell phones available at a budget price, and others launched as fully-fledged Android smartphones that are worthy competitors in the low and mid-range scene.
