Nokia in the year 2017 recovers itself from its fiasco of past 5 years. Now Nokia launched some budget and mid-range smartphones the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, Nokia 6 and Nokia 8 the flagship. But the price of this phone is slightly overpriced while we skim through the specifications. In the first of the year, 2018 Nokia has reintroduced the mid-range smartphone Nokia 6 2018 edition.
Last year in January Nokia launched its Nokia 6 with 5.5-inch 1,080*1,920px FHD (~403 PPI) 2.5D curved display protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The Nokia 6 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor based on Cortex-A53, clock speed of 1.4GHz with GPU Adreno 505. It comes with two storage variant 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB is the storage variant. Nokia 6 is expandable up to 128GB through microSD card (hybrid).
The smartphone packed with a back shooter of 16 MP (f/2.0, 1.0 µm), PDAF, and dual-tone LED flash. With a 8MP (f/2.0, 1.12 µm), autofocus, 1080p was placed, with supporting 1080p video capture at 30fps. All the sensors including Fingerprint (rear-mounted), accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass and Ambient light sensor comes with the device. 3.5mm headphone jack was also there.
The Nokia 6 runs on Android 7.1 and is powered by a 3000mAh non-removable battery. It measures 148.80 x 75.80 x 8.60 (height x width x thickness) and weigh 172.00 grams. The Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, USB OTG, FM, 3G and 4G (with support for Band 40 used by some LTE networks in India). Nokia 6 launched in India with price starts from Rs.13,449 for 3GB RAM variant and 15,000 for 4GB RAM variants with amazing 1,000 cashback offer from Amazon India.
Now, the newly announced Nokia 6 (2018) edition which shipping starts from January 2018, coming with some upgrades but not much from the previous one. The mere Snapdragon 430 chipset is replaced by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 630 which is an Octa-core CPU clocked at 2.2 GHz based on Cortex-A53 with Adreno 508 GPU.
2018’s Nokia 6 runs on Android 7.1.1, comes with 4GB of RAM and you can get either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage option. And still lacks the trendy 18:9 screen. Sensors are same as they are in Nokia 6 2017 but the place of the fingerprint sensor is changed from front to rear.
There is no changes done on camera, 3.5mm headphone jack and battery size except the micro USB port which is a Type-C now in Nokia 6 2018.
