Nokia came back strong to the phone market, on the back of its solid mid-range lineup. Nokia 6 was among them, and now Nokia is refreshing it with new features, keeping the overall formula same as last year.
The upgraded Nokia 6 2018 is now officially available in Pakistan.
Design and Display
Unlike other phones available in this price range, Nokia 6 2018 comes with the familiar 5.5-inch 16:9 aspect ratio Full HD (1920 x 1080) display with an IPS LCD panel. What’s changed from last year is the fingerprint sensor, which has been moved to the back. The bezels have also been trimmed a bit.
Internals and Storage
What makes the Nokia 6 2018 different is the more powerful Snapdragon 630 processor compared to the Snapdragon 430 used in the previous Nokia 6. It comes with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage, expandable via a microSD card slot. Dual SIM support is available by default.
It runs on stock Android Oreo thanks to being an Android One phone. It will be upgraded to Android P and Android Q and will continue to receive security updates for 3 years.
The camera is unchanged from last year, with a 16 MP f/2.0 sensor on the back, with PDAF and a dual LED flash. The front camera is also the same, with a 8 MP lens with autofocus.
Battery and Price
As with some of the other features, the battery is also unchanged. Nokia 6 2018 comes with a 3,000 mAh unit along with fast charging support. It now has a USB type-C slot instead of microUSB and can charge up to 50% in 30 minutes.
The phone will cost Rs. 29,900 for the 3 GB/32 GB variant. Pricing for the 4 GB/64 GB variant hasn’t been revealed yet.
