After a couple of leaks and tons of rumors, HMD has finally launched an update to the Nokia 6. The phone is a direct successor to last year’s Nokia 6 (2017) which was the phone to reestablish Nokia as a smartphone brand. Aside from following some design language from previous Nokia phones, the new Nokia 6 also has some changes.
For instance, the last year’s Nokia 6 had its fingerprint sensor on its front which is now moved to the back aside from that, the new phone will come in a new white color and in black color. There are no capacitive buttons on the front too, leaving the job for on-screen buttons and making it feel more similar to stock Android experience.
The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC which is clocked at 2.2 GHz and is paired with 4 GB of RAM, a significant upgrade from last year. On the front is a 5.5-inch FHD display with a more traditional 16:9 aspect ratio. Nokia has added 32 GB of internal storage, which can be expanded using MicroSD cards.
On the optics department, the phone has a single 16-megapixel sensor on the back with the support of dual tone flash and PDAF lens and in the front is an 8-megapixel camera with 84-degree wide angle lens.
The body of the phone is made using 6000 series aluminum and the build quality is quite good. Connectivity wise, the phone has almost all standard options such as 4G LTE on nano-SIM cards, USB- Type C, GPS, Bluetooth v5 and a 3.5 mm audio jack.
