HMD Announces Nokia 6 (2018) With Upgraded Specs

HMD Announces Nokia 6 (2018) With Upgraded Specs

Both Nokia 6 and Nokia 6 (2018) smartphones are backed by a 3,000mAh battery with fast charging support. When Microsoft sold the brand off to HMD Global, however, the brand experienced a revival that has, thus far, been pretty successful. It sports a circular shaped fingerprint scanner that sits below the rear camera.

Packing 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, the handset's inbuilt memory can be expanded via a microSD card slot (up to 128GB).

The design has also been tweaked, with the fingerprint scanner moving to the back, navigation buttons being moved on-screen and the dimensions changing, as the Nokia 6 (2018) comes in at 148.8 x 75.8 x 8.25mm (or 8.6mm where the camera juts out). Bummer. The device will also run on Android Nougat 7.1 out of the box but will, of course, receive an Oreo update. Many would, in fact, even say that the new Nokia 6 is what last year's Nokia 6 should have been in the first place. That's not the case though as HMD is shipping the Nokia 6 2018 with the same 5.5-inch 1080p display with a traditional 16:9 aspect ratio as the original Nokia 6.

Update: Multiple sources claim the Nokia 6 (2018) will feature a regular MicroUSB port instead of a Type-C one as previously thought.

HMD Global's Nokia has announced the successor to its popular mid-range offering - the Nokia 6 (2018). Last year, the original Nokia 6 was announced in January for China, then made available in the United States through Amazon in July.

Elsewhere, the speaker setup on-board the original Nokia 6 came with dual amplifiers and support for Dolby Atmos sound technology. However, Nokia 6 (2018) now supports "Bothie" mode that lets users capture and record from the front and rear camera simultaneously. The 32GB storage version will come at CNY 1,499 (approximately Rs. 14,600), which the 64GB model will cost users CNY 1,699 (roughly Rs. 16,600).

China's Suning already begun to accept the pre-orders regarding the Nokia 6 (2018). Similarly, an 8MP front camera is available with a wide-angle lens.

Starting off with the design, the Nokia 6 is once again made out of aluminum (6000 series this time around) and will be available in two different colors - black with gold accents and white with copper accents.
