Nokia 6 (2018) with Snapdragon 630 Chipset, Bluetooth 5 Announced

Nokia 6 2018

At exactly a year ago, HMD Global announced the first Nokia Android smartphone, Nokia 6, during CES 2017 event. This year, ahead of CES 2018 that is just around the corner, the company has announced an upgraded model of the smartphone with a redesigned outer layer and more powerful processor, the Nokia 6 (2018).

This has the same screen size and resolution as the former, but the processor has been up from octa-core Snapdragon 430 to Snapdragon 630. It has a new stylish look with 2.5D Gorilla Glass covering the display area. The physical home button have been eliminated and the fingerprint sensor now resides below the rear camera. Talking of camera, the Nokia 6 (2018) sports a 16MP f/2.0 camera at the back and an 8MP wide-angle front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture, just like its predecessor. Nokia Dual Sight technology is implemented with the cameras as well.

Other notable upgrade is in connectivity. The new Nokia phone comes with Bluetooth 5 and USB Type-C port, which is quite an upgrade when compared with Bluetooth 4.1 and Micro-USB port that the former boasted of.

The phone runs Android 7.1 Nougat out-of-the-box but will be upgradeable to Android 8 Oreo in the near future. It has the same storage capacity, RAM, and battery as the 2017 model.
