The orignal Nokia 6 wasn’t really appealing and we all know that. Now HMD Global has upped its game and has listed the new phone on Nokia’s official website.
The updated Nokia 6 has a Snapdragon 630, instead of 430, which is a great chipset regarding the price range. The design is not changed except that the finger print sensor is now below the camera, which I personally prefer, to be the best place for the finger print sensor.
The phone’s still made out of an aluminum unibody with rounded corners. Also as a result of this, last year’s capacitive navigation buttons are gone and replaced with on-screen ones.
The Nokia 6 (2018) might not look like a huge improvement over the 2017 version at first glance, but that’s because the most important upgrade lies under the hood. As mentioned before, the phone runs on Snapdragon 630 that’s paired with 4GB of RAM.
What hasn’t changed is that the phone still has 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 display, 16MP rear camera, and 3,000 mAh battery, and while the Nokia 6 (2018) will ship with Android 7.1.1 Nougat, Nokia says that an update to Oreo is in the works. Also new is a USB Type-C port compared to the older microUSB we saw last year.
As for the prices, the 32GB Nokia 6 will cost around $259 and the 64GB at $294 in China. Pre orders are set to begin on January 10 in China, and an expanded release to other markets (including the United States) will likely happen later in the year.
