HMD Global has officially launched the Nokia 6 2018 in India for a price of Rs. 16,999. The company had launched this smartphone in China in January 2018. However, unlike the Chinese variant, the Nokia 6 2018 launched in India supports Android One Programme, which offers faster software and security updates. The smartphone will be available from the 6th of April via Nokia Mobile Shops and select mobile outlets.

Nokia 6

The Nokia 6 2018 has a 5.5 inch 1920 x 1080 px IPS LCD display with 16:9 aspect ratio. However, unlike most smartphones in this segment, the device misses out on an 18:9 aspect ratio screen. Under the hood, the smartphone has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 Octa-core chipset with 4GB and 32/64GB storage. Like the original Nokia 6, the storage is expandable up to 256GB using a micro SD card.

This smartphone also has a Zeiss certified single 16MP camera with an f/2.0 aperture and an 8MP front-facing camera with an f/2.0 aperture. The primary camera can record native 4K videos, whereas the front-facing camera maxes out at 1080p @ 30fps. The has a 3000 mAh sealed battery with support for fast charging via USB type C port. The fingerprint sensor now sits on the back of the device. This is a peculiar decision by the company since it has retained the 16:9 aspect ratio. Smartphone makers usually revert to a rear-facing fingerprint sensor when they shrink the bezels and don’t have enough space to place the sensor on the front.

Nokia 6 2018

Though the device has a wide array of features, it is slightly overpriced for the Indian market. In fact, phones like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, Honor 7X have a dual camera setup with a taller display and retail at a lower price. However, the Nokia 6 2018 does have an advantage of stock Android OS and a USB type C port. But, whether these features are enough for an average Indian consumer to shell out the extra cash, is a guess as good as any other.
