The new NOKIA 6 is coming tomorrow, but Suning already listed the device on it’s official online store ahead of the launch. The listing revealed the complete specification of the handset, supplied with some photos.
Just like the previous leaks, the new NOKIA 6 will have a minimal side bezels and although the top and bottom remains a chunk, it is slightly thinner than the previous model. The facade is also free from physical buttons in favor of the software keys, and the fingerprint sensor was transposed at the back below the camera setup. As what we can see, the solid metal build remains, leaving no hope for wireless charging. There could be a support for fast charging though, so it won’t be that big of a problem.
The listing comes in two configuration: 4GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB. The 32GB model will be priced at ¥1499 ($230USD, ₹14634) while the 64GB model at ¥1699 ($260USD, ₹16587). Unfortunately, only two colors were shown on the listing: Matte Black and Steel. But we’re pretty sure HMD is giving us more color options for the global release.
The display remains at 5.5″ Full HD IPS LCD, but we can’t confirm the aspect ratio. But it does look narrower and taller than the previous version. We’ll see about that tomorrow. For the cameras, the NOKIA 6 will rock a 8MP selfie camera and 16MP rear snapper with LED flash and Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF). The optics is based on the NOKIA 5 camera module and so expect f/2.0 aperture.
HMD is also bringing the Dual-Sight (Bothie) and OZO 360° Audio recording on the NOKIA 6. These features were only made available for the NOKIA 7 and NOKIA 8 so far, but the Finnish company is really keen on throwing the “#Bothie” on the trend. Let’s see where it goes.
Finally, we got the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 630 on board and not the inferior Snapdragon™ 450. The RAM will be LPDDR4 4GB, so expect some overkilling performance if directly compared with the 2017 model.
