Nokia 6 (2018) to launch today in China


The device is launched in China, so for the next couple of months, it will be exclusive to the Chinese market itself. Further, the Nokia 6 (2018) has a metal unibody manufacture that is made of 6000 arrangement aluminum. The smartphone was debuted in India following its formal announcement with a price tag of Rs. 6,999 and is also available in the US.

One of the more notable internal upgrades of the Nokia 6 (2018) is its processor. According to the retailer, the base variant with 32GB storage will be sold at RMB 1,499 (approximately Rs 14,700), whereas the 64GB storage variant will be sold for RMB 1,699 (approximately Rs 16,600). Only this time round, HMD is using bold colour accents to accentuate the phone's chamfers on both the front as well as on the back. The only letdown with the original Nokia 6 was the processor.

The new Nokia 6 (2018) is, as of now, available for pre-order only in China. The upgraded variant makes it a better phone altogether.

Nokia 6 features a 5.5 inch IPS LCD Full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and a pixel density of 403 ppi. So those expecting an 18:9 aspect ratio display may be disappointed.

The original Nokia 6, to recall, made its debut in China, so HMD chose to take the launch of its successor in the same country is not that surprising.

The Nokia 6 2018 comes up with the Android Oreo software out-of-the-box. It will come equipped with a 16MP rear camera along with an 8MP front-facing camera. It also has support for fast charging. The integrated 3000mAh battery will not only be able to deliver an enhanced backup but also helps you to charge the device quickly.

The new Nokia 6 is expected to cost somewhere in the region of £200, although official pricing is yet to be confirmed. HMD is left with yet another job. The mentioned device will be company's flagship smartphone in the top-flight.

Other damning comments included: "We should avoid this phone" and "I don't understand why anyone would buy a brand new phone with an outdated OS [operating system]".
