Nokia 6 (2018) officially presented. The new medium HMD Global offers decent components and flagship accessories in the form of OZO Audio and the Bothie mode, all at a decent price. In the comparison table you will see what has changed compared to the previous generation.
As expected, Nokia 6 (2018) was officially presented today by HMD Global. Finns have refreshed the previous generation well, although it can not be hidden that the original Nokia 6 was a bit too weak.
Nokia 6 (2018) – specification
Let's start with the fact that Nokia 6 (2018) is not frameless . The screen is 5.5 inches, 16: 9 format and Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080). The manufacturer closed it in a housing with dimensions of 148.8 x 75.8 x 8.15 mm, so the smartphone has dimensions similar to the LG G6 with a screen size of 5.7 inches. It is worth noting, however, that the new model is lower than its predecessor and by more than 0.5 centimeter, so progress is noticeable. How has this been achieved? The Android hotkeys are displayed on the screen this time, not on the frame beneath it.The heart of Nokia 6 (2018) is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor with Adreno 508 graphics, supported by 4 GB RAM type LPDDR4. This is a noticeable progress compared to the predecessor, though probably because it was the last year's model for a weak SoC. The manufacturer has allocated 32 or 64 GB of eMMC 5.1 to the user files, depending on the version. The photographic facility is a 16-megapixel camera with the Bothie mode and an 8-megapixel self- portrait camera. There is no mention of ZEISS or NFC optics anywhere. This second module may appear in European distribution, because in China it is not that important. The new Nokia 6 has USB type C and a pretty outdated LTE cat modem. 4.
