Design and Display

Like the original Nokia 6, the new Nokia 6 (2018) shows striking build. Its unibody design features a slab of 6000 series aluminium and diamond cut finishing. But it is thicker than 2017’s Nokia 6 at 8.15 mm.

You get the same 5.5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. There is rugged Corning Gorilla Glass in the mix for protection against scratches.

In the camera department, you could hardly tell the difference between the Nokia 6 (2018) and its predecessor on the surface. On the rear, you will find a 16MP processor with f/2.0 aperture and phase detection autofocus (PDAF). There is still an 8MP selfie shooter with an 84-degree wide angle lens.

A notable new addition on the Nokia 6 (2018) is a Dual View feature. This enables you to capture images with both the primary and secondary cameras at once.

Hardware and Software

Equipped with a sturdier Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset, the Nokia 6 (2018) promises improved performance. The original model came with the entry-level Snapdragon 430 by the comparison. The RAM also increases to 4 GB to give better backing to the new octa-core processor for more enjoyable multitasking.

Internal storage still remains at 32 GB – this is expandable using a microSD card. There is also a 64GB variant. The Nokia 6 (2018) ships with Android Nougat, but HMD Global has started stable Oreo rollout.
