Nokia 6 (2018) officially unveiled – a new look, nice specs, decent price

- Adrian Ungureanu

As promised, HMD Global has unveiled, in China, the second generation of Nokia 6, the successor of the first smartphone in the new Nokia era.

The phone got a new look, but the changes aren’t too dramatic. There’s a metal case now on the Nokia 6. The Home button was ditched, so the fingerprint reader was moved at the back. Overall, the phone does look nice.

Specs-wise, the new Nokia 6 look good for in price segment. But more details about the specs you’ll find in the list bellow.

Since we mentioned about the prices, in China the Nokia 6 (2018) has a price tag of 1,499 yuan (~$230/€190) for the 32GB storage version and the 64GB storage version costs 1,699 yuan (~$262/€217). It already available for pre-order and in stores it should arrive on January 10th if everything goes well. unfortunately, at this moment, there are no details about the global launch. Nokia 6 (2018) comes in Black and Silver.

I hope that HMD and Nokia will give us something next week, in Las Vegas, at CES 2018 (9-12 January).
