The new phone’s biggest USP is probably its new Operating system, instead of running on a modified version of Android, the company has made ties with Google to ship the phone with Android One. Under that, the phone will ship pre-installed with the latest Android Oero and later, it will receive updates directly from the Google mothership.
Aside from that, the phone is a common mid-range affair with some unique Nokia touches. Powering the phone is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC clocked at 2.2 GHz which is paired with 3GB RAM. Aside from that, the phone has another 4 GB RAM variant which will come with 64 GB of Storage, 1 gig more compared to the base model.
The front of the phone has a run of the mil 5.5 inch full HD display and an 8-megapixel camera and on the back is a 16-megapixel camera with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
Just like the recent leaks suggested, the phone did not cut off the 3.5 mm audio jack and it comes with almost all modern connectivity options except for the NFC which looks to be saved only for the higher Nokia phones.
At the press time, the company announced that the phone will cost EUR 279 which is roughly 22,000 INR. Considering there are some good phones around that price, it will be interesting to see how the new Nokia 6 does in the market.
