New Nokia 6 smartphone lands to fan fury - 'avoid this phone'

Back in October past year, HMD Global launched its mid-range smartphone - the Nokia 7 - in China.

In addition, the Nokia 6 (2018) packs a 3000mAh battery that backings quick charging innovation. But this device was much less powerful and it had an entry-level SoC, while the new model will sport a mid-range processor. So is the Nokia 6 (2018). 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. The fingerprint scanner which was previously located on the home button is now on the rear. Also, the Finnish phone maker has been planning to announce the most awaited phone Nokia 9 at a China event on January 19, 2018. This processor is to be coupled with 256MB RAM and 512MB of internal storage, along with up to 32GB microSD card support. There's a 5.5-inch Full HD display on the front which doesn't has an 18:9 aspect ratio or any bezel-less novelties as you'd expect. The experiments involved a smartphone with 4 GB of RAM and OS Android 8 already out of the box, but will also release a version with 6 GB of RAM. If you'd prefer the more capacious 64GB version, it'll cost you CNY1699 ($261 USD).

After a barrage of leaks of Nokia 6's successor, HMD Global has officially unveiled the Nokia 6 (2018) as it had promised.

The Nokia 6 2018, when you look at it for the first time, doesn't look all that different from the original Nokia 6.

Elsewhere, the Nokia 6 2018 comes with USB Type-C port for charging and data syncing unlike the original that came with a standard Micro USB 2.0 port.

The rear camera is integrated with a 16MP sensor with support for f/2.0 aperture, PDAF, and dual-tone LED Flash. Even the 8-megapixel selfie camera on the front has the same aperture. The device is said to start selling this coming January 10, Wednesday in China.

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.
