Nokia 6: The Old Warhorse Makes a Low-Key Comeback with Android On-Board
Nokia’s first Android empowered smartphone is finally here and it will soon start rolling out, internationally. While the acoustic arrangements look promising, Nokia seems to have played safe in the processing department. That said, we get a massive portion of RAM and decent internal storage support with this innovative smartphone. Here is how the detailed specs sheet, looks like:
Nokia 6 offers a 5.5-inch 1080p screen which is further safeguarded by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The existing Full HD display offers 450 nits, in terms of maximum brightness and flaunts the 2.5D curved glass panel for a better calling experience.
Dual-SIM support is available in addition to Wireless connectivity, USB OTG support, GPS and Bluetooth v4.1. This smartphone also rakes in a home button which doubles up as the fingerprint sensor. Apart from that, this gadget adorns a metallic chassis, featuring an aluminum alloy unibody. In terms of thickness, this gadget measures 7.80mm.
We aren’t overly excited about the Snapdragon 430 SoC from Qualcomm and its existence on Nokia 6 is more of a deal breaker. The 8 ARM Cortex A53 cores clock at 1.2GHz and 1.5GHz respectively which might not be sufficient to drive 3 gigs of built-in RAM.
Adreno 505 GPU is a standard addition and the graphics are expected to be decent.
Camera units, on the other hand are average with Nokia offering a 16MP rear shooter with f/2.0 aperture and PDAF. 4K video recording support is given a miss and the 8MP selfie module isn’t any better with a similar f/2.0 aperture.
The best features include 3GB RAM and 32GB of built-in storage support expandable further up to 128GB. Moreover, dual speakers and dual smart amplifiers are great additions further enhanced by Dolby Atmos audio technology.
Lastly, Android Nougat 7.1.1 is the existing operating system but it will be interesting to see if Nokia uses a dedicated user interface.
