  • Nokia 6: Specs price features and everything you need to know

Like its predecessor, the Nokia 6 (2018) gets its stamina from a 3000 mAh battery. HMD is also using its bold colour accent scheme around the power button and the volume rocker, so all in all, the Nokia 6 2018 looks a lot sharper than the original Nokia 6. Nokia 6 (2018) ships with an improved processor, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and "Boathie" mode for camera, a feature first seen on Nokia 8.

On the design side of things, the button and fingerprint reader arrangement is new. The new Nokia 6 still supports expandable storage of up to 128GB via a hybrid micro-SD card slot.

Unlike the Nokia 6, that was launched past year with a fingerprint scanner on the home button, the new Nokia 6 (2018) is a reduced bezel smartphone having a fingerprint scanner on the back.

One angry commenter said: "There's a new vulnerability and all Google says is I should apply an update that will never be available because my phone is more than a year old".




While the new 5.5-incher retains a large part of its predecessor's specs and features, starting with a conventional 16:9 aspect ratio and Full HD screen resolution, it's very hard to argue with its compelling value proposition.

The Nokia 6 (2018) is still not formally announced, but you can, in fact, already pre-order it. And the 2018 version also has come up with two features unique to this segment- Bluetooth 5.0 and USB Type-C. It will get Oreo in the days to come, which is what, HMD is promising, but to not have Oreo out-of-the-box in a phone launching in January 2018 is not something that fans and critics expect from the company. There was no fast charging.

What has changed is the addition of Nokia's Dual-Sight technology which can capture images from both the primary and secondary camera at the same time. While the 2017 model has a fingerprint sensor placed below the display at the front, the 2018 model has it at the back below the elongated capsule enclosure that includes a single rear camera and flash.

The report also claimed that the smartphone would be available for purchase exclusively through Amazon India at present. The handsets were both launched in Black and Silver color variants.
