At the same time, HMD is bringing youth-centric features like Dual-Sight (and Bothie), to the masses with the new Nokia 6, to make sense for a wider audience. But this device was much less powerful and it had an entry-level SoC, while the new model will sport a mid-range processor.
First of all, the Nokia 6 got a little smaller. HMD isn't making a big deal of the announcement (maybe not yet) but the phone has been sighted on another Chinese website and is now ready for pre-order. According to the retailer, the base variant with 32GB storage will be sold at RMB 1,499 (approximately Rs 14,700), whereas the 64GB storage variant will be sold for RMB 1,699 (approximately Rs 16,600). Although Nokia came back past year, it was only for China, as it launched the Nokia 6 in our neighbouring country. The screen dimensions are the same, at 5.5 inches and 1080p HD resolution, and the cameras are unchanged, at 16 megapixels on the back and 8 megapixels on the front. This display has an aspect ratio of 16:9, and not 18:9, which is a sad thing. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3, which prevents scratches. In other words, the Nokia 6 (2018) won't be a huge upgrade from the existing Nokia 6, so users should not expect major changes.
The fingerprint scanner in Nokia 6 is embedded into the home button on the front. The company has ditched the capacitive navigation buttons in support for on-screen buttons (thank goodness!).
The fingerprint scanner is claimed to lie on the back in the case of the Nokia 6 2018. The phone has a metal unibody design made of 6000 series aluminium, which is appreciable for a phone in this price range.
HMD Global officially unveiled the Nokia 6 (2018) today. Nokia 1 will be a low budget phone around the price range of Rs.6,670. The chipset is paired with Adreno 508 GPU for graphics, 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM for system operations, and 32GB/64GB internal storage. But you can still expand the storage up to 128GB with the help of a microSD card. The phones devices use a micro-USB port for charging.
