The thing is that that the Nokia 6 is no handset. It’s already been China for a while now with us, officially launching back in January 2017. Rest assured though; there is a correct launch imminent, but no official release date was set. Expect the Nokia 6 to launch in July.
The phone packs 32GB of storage which can be expanded up to 128GB using a card. As far because the cameras have been all concerned, the Nokia 6 Packs a camera on the rear and also a front shooter for selfies.

Nokia 6 Layout and Screen
The Nokia 6 is crafted from a single block of aluminum, and the result is a phone which feels premium than its budget price tag.
There’s a reassuring weight into the handset, and while its 154 x 75.8 x 7.85millimeter measurements ensure it is a sizable presence on the hand, it’s still easy to use.
We found the surfaces of the Nokia 6 weren’t too comfortable on the hands since phones with all rounded borders — just like the 5 and 5 — and this is noticeable if you hold the device in one hand for an elongated period.
You will be able to receive that the standard Nokia 6 in four different colors (aluminum, silver, matte-black and tempered blue), and there is the glistening Arte Black special variant too.
Even the power/lock and volume keys are easy hittings on the best of the phone, and Nokia has also included a 3.5millimeter headphone jack upwards, while a micro USB port resides alongside one internal speaker on the base of their handset.
Considering the price of the device, it’s nice to see that a fingerprint scanner (that doubles as your home key) on the front of the Nokia 6, flanked by the capacitive-touch rear and multitasking keys.
Meanwhile, the large 5.5-inch Full HD display is bright and clear, and it’s more than adequate for a handset in the mount the Nokia 6 falls into.
This means video playback and gambling should look excellent on the Nokia 6, using plenty of space for controls.
Nokia 6 Interface and Performance
Android purists will be happy. The Nokia 6 runs Android 7 Nougat and… that’s it. There is no clunky overlay and no pre-installed bloat ware. Nokia has opted to stick with the stock Android port, and it’s a choice we’re content with.
It makes the Nokia 6 easy to navigate, and performance was easy to its actions we carried on the handset.
There’s a Snapdragon 430 chip under the hood along with 3GB of RAM (or 4GB if you opt for your Arte Black variation), and that provided ample power for overall usage and the camera.
We don’t wonder if the entry chip-set will have trouble with heavy lifting tasks. However, you are going to need to await our full review to learn how it copes under great pressure.
If the 32GB of space inside the newest Nokia 6 isn’t enough (but for all that’s unlikely), there is a microSD slot too, which supports cards as much as 128GB in size.
The Nokia 6 comes with a non-removable 3,000mAh battery that ought to see a day on a single charge out with usage, but we won’t know for sure until we’ve placed the telephone through our review procedure.
Round the back, a 16MP camera protrudes from the rear of the telephone and will be offering HDR and a dual tone flash.
The Nokia 6 we got hands-on with at ran applications, so the camera was not acting at its maximum stage, but we were impressed with the handful of photos we all were able to snap.
On the leading an 8MP selfie snapper is significantly more than serviceable for its dressing shot.
The Nokia 6 resembles a smartphone that is cheap. It has got a good spec sheet and design, as the stock Android interface needs to mean it receives applications upgrades.
Our major reservation, for the time being, is the chip set, and it copes under heavy-lifting, however, signs for Nokia’s yield are positive.
