  • HMD Global's Nokia 6 2018 is finally here is it the Nokia we've been waiting for

The Nokia 6 (2018) looks awesome and we can't wait for it to arrive in Malaysia. Keeping up with the trend of all the other Nokia phones launched in 2017, this one has a "Bothie" feature too. There are a couple of differences worth noting, though, like the removal of the capacitive buttons and fingerprint reader on the front of the phone. Sadly, the Nokia 6 2018 still runs on Android Nougat 7.1.1 out-of-the-box but the company has promised to upgrade it to Android 8.0 Oreo very soon. The major changes in the Nokia 6 (2018) when compared to Nokia 6 is the upgraded processor, slightly modified design, and the addition of USB Type-C port. The new version moves the fingerprint sensor to the back of the phone, giving the device a higher screen-to-body ratio.

Given the same 1,699 yuan price (about $260) for the 64GB version with 4GB of RAM, this new Nokia 6 is a tad more attractive than its predecessor.

For instance, many Android phones are now affected by the Meltdown and Spectre bugs, but new Nokia 6 owners will likely have to wait to receive the full fix.

Both Nokia 6 and Nokia 6 (2018) smartphones are backed by a 3,000mAh battery with fast charging support. The smartphone was well received after its initial release in the Chinese market and managed to garner 250,000 pre-orders within the first 24 hours. HMD is also using its bold colour accent scheme around the power button and the volume rocker, so all in all, the Nokia 6 2018 looks a lot sharper than the original Nokia 6. On the show part, the Nokia 6 (2018) highlights a 5.5-inch IPS show with a full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) determination and 16:9 perspective proportion.

A key fan forum has been flooded with complaints over the phone's software, despite the handset not even being available for sale yet. Under the hood, Nokia is stepping up with a 2.2GHz Octa-Core Snapdragon 630 processor that's mated to 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM. As for the camera, the Nokia 6 (2018) has a 16MP rear sensor with dual-tone LED flash and f/2.0 aperture.

Hardware wise, the imaging aspects of the 2018 Nokia 6 are kept the same as of the original Nokia 6.
