New Nokia 6 Smartphone With Snapdragon 630 Gets Official

New Nokia 6 Smartphone With Snapdragon 630 Gets Official

Pricing for the Nokia 6 (2018) is expected to start at CNY1499 ($240 USD) for the 32GB model. The phone was subjected to a lot of rumours and leaks that hinted towards a possible launch early this year.

The upcoming Nokia 6 (2018) first dropped by TENAA last month, and now, the authority added more information. That means no more hardware buttons on the front, capacitive or physical. Bezels have been narrowed down as the fingerprint scanner has been moved to the back and now there are on screen buttons. Whereas the navigation keys are displayed on-screen through software. So those expecting an 18:9 aspect ratio display may be disappointed.

The Nokia 6 is undoubtedly the best-looking smartphone in its price range. It will be offered in two color variants - black with orange accents, and white with red accents. The main highlight of the Nokia 6 (2018) is the integration of a 5.5-inch display, Snapdragon 630 processor coupled with 4GB RAM.

Just like other Nokia smartphones, the Nokia 6 (2018) comes with stock OS - Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box - and has promised an Android Oreo update. Nokia 6 (2018) is powered by a 2.2GHz Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor, as against a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 one in Nokia 6. The slightly more premium 64GB internal storage variant costs 1699 Yuan, again approximately Rs 16,610. The internal storage of the new model is expandable up to 128GB.

As for optics, the new Nokia handset features a 16MP rear camera with Dual-Tone LED flash along with features like PDAF. It has an f/2.0 aperture which will help in clicking good low-light pictures. While at the front, we have an 8-megapixel front-facing camera with a 1.12um sensor and f/2.0 aperture for selfies and video calling. The only new addition to imaging is the "Bothie mode" which allows the users to use both the rear and front camera simultaneously to create a bothie. There could be a support for fast charging though, so it won't be that big of a problem.

The new smartphone will reportedly become available for purchase starting next week. however, the smartphone can already be pre-ordered.

The wait for the Nokia 6 (2018) is finally over.
