Nokia’s first phone for 2018 is here – The Nokia 6 (2018)

Just yesterday we had a leak say that Nokia 6 (2018) is about to launch soon and today, HMD Global announced the 2018 variant of its last year’s Nokia 6 in China. The leaked pictures came out to be true. The design language speaks for itself.

The new Nokia 6 carries that more interesting design language with added gold-borders on the rear camera and on the sides. The other physical feature that differentiates the 2018 variant from the 2017 one is the placement of the fingerprint scanner. The biometric sensor has been moved to the back of the device. Also, Nokia has ditched the capacitive touch buttons on the front in favour of on-screen buttons.

The unibody design includes 6000 series aluminium chassis created using two-color anodization process and diamond cutting technology.

On the software front, the Nokia 6 (2018) includes Dual-Sight technology that uses both front and rear cameras simultaneously directly from your camera app to create Bothie – a split screen visual for both photos and videos.
