Hands On with Nokia 6 : The New Nokia Smartphone Priced at 1699 Yuan!

First of all, we all Welcome Nokia as today is the day when the company has come back into the smartphone business after a long wait of 3 Years. ( It was in 2014 when company launched an Android tablet). Nokia 6 is the name of first Android Smartphone from Nokia that has been launched in China today. The best thing about this new Nokia phone is its pricing and also the features that it offers. Nokia has made the phone exclusive to China, but sources have said that it will be launched in other countries later this year. Let’s have a look at what Nokia 6 offers.




The main USP of this device is its Build and Design. It is made up of a solid block of 6000 series Aluminium. This gives it a solid feel in the hands and the device looks gorgeous as we can see in the images. The edges are rounded that provide an excellent grip in the hands. On the back, we have rear camera module, noise cancellation mic and below the rear camera is Nokia branding. We can see that the antenna Line is same as in the iPhone 7. On the front, we have the eyepiece, front camera and below that is a 5.5-inch screen. On the bottom, there are two capacitive keys and the home button has a fingerprint scanner embedded in it.


Coming to display, there is a 5.5-inch IN-CELL display with 2.5D curved glass, and it is protected with the Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Snapdragon 430 powers the device along with the 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal memory that can be expanded up to 128GB via external microSD card. The processor may disappoint as it is not a perfect choice as a processor when the pricing is around $245. But, since it is Nokia, we expect the performance to be Snappy and smooth.


As per the cameras, we have 16MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and Phase Detection AutoFocus (PDAF). On the front, the camera is 8MP with the same f/2.0 aperture that is perfect for clicking selfies. The rear camera has just 1-micrometer sensor that will surely click some great shots. Similarly, there is a 1.12-micrometer sensor and 84-degree wide angle lens.

Lastly, the phone runs on Android Nougat v.7.1 OS and 3,000 mAh non-removable battery power the phone. The software isn’t stock as the images reveal and the company has done some tweaks in the UI.
