Fans of Nokia have a reason to celebrate this January as HMD Global has unveiled their latest device the Nokia 6 (2018) or Nokia 6 (second-generation) as it is referred to on the official website.
The phone which comes with a metallic uni-body design just like it’s predecessor, 5.5-inch full HD display with a disappointing 16:9 aspect ratio The processor and memory have been upgraded to Snapdragon 630 processor and 4GB of RAM from Snapdragon 625 and 3GB respectively. It comes with 32GB or 64GB internal storage options, a 16MP camera coupled with an 8MP selfie camera and Android Nougat on-board which will be expected to get Android 8 soon the Nokia way.
The design of the second-generation Nokia 6 shares a lot from its predecessor, however the fingerprint reader has been moved to the back and the capacitive navigation buttons have now been replaced with on-screen buttons.
The second-generation Nokia 6 also borrows a lot from the flagship Nokia 8 in terms of smartphone features. It features USB Type-C, OZO Audio for 360-degrees recording and Bothie mode to share both sides of the story by use of the front and back camera on one image for both video and photography.
The phone is only currently available in China on pre-order but we expect to see an international version unveiled at CES just like it was last year. The best thing so far aside from the improved specs sheet is the price of the phone which remains at a recommended $230.
We will also be expecting HMD Global to unveil a budget Nokia 1 and flagship Nokia 9 at CES in a few days.
