New Nokia 6 smartphone lands to fan fury - 'avoid this phone'

  • Nokia 6

Now, almostexactly a year later, the Nokia 6's 2nd-gen variant has been listed on a Chinese retailer's website, complete with specs, images and pricing details. However, we were expecting Nokia to come up with Android 8.0 Oreo.

HMD makes a big deal out of software and user experience - pure, secure and up to date - but the new Nokia 6 2018 still runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box which is a little disappointing.

While the teaser has created a lot of Buzz among the fans, but we bet you would not have noticed Katrina Kaif in the teaser. If you take a closer look at the Shah Rukh Khan's character you will notice the face of Katrina Kaif imprinted on his coat.

For starters, there's no home button on the front and Nokia 6 (2018) uses capacitive on-screen keys for navigation. While the Nokia 6 was a good phone with the 5.5-inch display, that aspect has not changed here but the company has chose to change a few things with the design as well as with the internal specs. The new Nokia 6 (2018) does not have a physical home button underneath the display and therefore the fingerprint scanner has now been moved to the back of the phone. Its hardware specs did not do full justice to it even though the Nokia 6 was praised by one and all for its outstanding build quality. While the rumors that surfaced in the past few weeks already revealed many of its specs and features, we finally know everything there is to know about the new model. The handset has an 8-megapixel rear camera sensor with an LED flash and a 5-megapixel front camera sensor and packs a 4100mAh battery. Similarly, an 8MP front camera is available with a wide-angle lens. On the hardware side, it seems that there will be an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630, which is the successor of the Snapdragon 625 and 626 chips and includes an Adreno 508 GPU. That's with 32GB internal storage space only, while 64 gigs will set you back 1,699 yuan, or $260. These are both expandable up to 128 GB via microSD. One that can be charged up by means of a USB Type-C port. According to the leak, the phone has a 5.5-inch display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection, and its body is made of aluminum 6000 series.
