    Nokia 6 marks the launch relaunch of Nokia to the smartphone arena after a break. The device is likely to be launched in India on June 13 along with other devices like Nokia 3 and Nokia 5. The device has been making appearances in the press and media through benchmark tests and leaks. Here is what we can expect from the new Nokia 6.

    Design
    In spite of having a budget pricing, Nokia 6 has a premium look with unibody design made from a single Aluminium black. With dimensions reading 154 x 75.8 x 7.85mm , it weighs a little heavy, yet easy to carry. The phone has flat sides which can cause an uncomfortable feeling while handling it, though. You should be able to buy it in silver, copper, matte black and tempered blue, while there will also be a special edition in glossy Arte Black. Power and volume rockers are on the right, there is a 3.5 mm audio port on the top. The microUSB port finds itself at the bottom. Nokia 6 has a fingerprint sensor embedded within the Home button.

    Display
    Nokia 6 sports a 5.5 inch display in full HD resolution. The images and text appear crisp and sharper. The IPS LCD display has Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The contrast and brightness levels are just awesome.

    Software
    The phone should be a treat for those who love stock Android. The phone runs on Android Nougat 7.0 out of the box. There is no unnecessary chunkiness that is normally seen in other Android smartphones. There are no bloatware that comes pre-installed. That would make the phone work quite smoothly. Noika has stated that the device will be upgraded to Android O when it is available.
    Finger print sensor works effectively. You can record up to 5 fingerprints. Though a few hiccups have been noticed, it isn't that bad.

    Hardware
    Nokia 6 is powered by Snapdragon 430 processor which clocks at 1.4 GHz. Adreno 505 GPU handles the task of graphics. You will get 3 GB of onboard RAM. Please note that the special edition Arte Black provides you 4 GB RAM. The use of an entry level processor can give rise to concerns, however, it is quite early to predict how does it perform. The internal storage on the phone reads 32 GB while you have the option of expanding it further by means of a microSD card. It supports memory expansion up to 128 GB.

    Camera
    Nokia 6 comes with a 16 MP camera on the rear. The camera has dual tone flash and HDR compatibility. The front carries a 8 MP selfie camera for the selfie fans. The primary camera has a 1 micron pixels and Phase detection auto focus. The camera app is quite simple and employs a standard interface.

    Battery and other features
    The phone is shipped with a 3000 mAh battery. I would expect it to run through a day's usage quite easily with moderate usage patterns.
    The phone offers you dual SIM compatibility, but it employs a hybrid SIM slot. That would mean you need to make a choice between a dual SIM functionality, or an expanded storage. You will get 4G LTE compatibility. Other connectivity features include WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, and not to forget FM Radio.

    Pricing and availability
    The phone is yet to be launched in India. It should be interesting to note that HMD Global has arranged a press conference on June 13, 2017 and it could see the launch of Nokia 6 along with other phones. The approximate price would be Rs. 17000. However, for the exact number, we may need to wait till the official confirmation.

    Live....and Let Live!

    Nokia is back in action with it's brand new model Nokia 6. Below is a complete list of all the specs.

    Introduction
    First off all this is one sturdy phone, it looks and feels great. The body is solid and all metal. I appreciate the weight especially knowing that it's due to the industry leading sturdiness that Nokia phones are known for. The frame edges are quite sharp and even though we are not fans of their shiny polish we appreciate how good of a grip they provide. Overall we'd say the Nokia 6 is one solid phone with great looks but it's not the most compact 5.5 inch.

    Specifications
    The exterior is pretty standard for a modern smartphone. A 3.5mm headphone jack is included and that's a relief. Near the top, there is an 8-megapixel selfie camera and the phone's earpiece. This earpiece doubles as one of the stereo loudspeakers, the other is located at the bottom of the phone. Right next to it there is a micro USB 2.0 port and the microphone. The hybrid dual SIM slot is also on the left side. This allows you to expand the storage if you don't need dual SIM functionality. The fingerprint reader is front mounted and located between two touch-sensitive navigation keys. You can use it to unlock your phone and it also acts as a home key. The reader responds quickly but it's not the most accurate we've ever seen. It's also positioned quite low on the phone's body which for some might feel awkward.

    Display
    The Nokia 6 has a 5.5-inch display and is protected by Gorilla Glass 3. It's among the brightest screens in this price segment and is easily usable in sunlight. The contrast is also good and if you switch the screen setting to warm you get great colour accuracy as well.

    Battery
    The Nokia 6 scored a battery endurance rating of 75 hours. So it's above average for its class but certainly not a battery champion. The talk-time and the standby battery draw were particularly good.

    Camera
    The 16-megapixel camera on the back sticks out of it doesn't look bad but it can cause the phone to wobble. The camera interface is quite simple if you want the manual mode it's hidden inside the menu. There's not a lot of customization options available here. The image quality on the Nokia 6 isn't that great. There's a decent amount of detail but you can notice a softness towards the edges. The colours feel muted and dull. None of them seem to pop. There is an HDR mode but it doesn't seem to add anything positive. The Nokia 6 shoots video in plain 1080p at 30 frames per second. No 4k here. The video quality is pretty good, there's plenty of detail and textures look natural but the colours are again a bit of a letdown.

    Software
    The Nokia 6 boots Android 7.0 Nougat with Nokia's customized UI on top. On the Nokia home screen, all the system items and pre-installed apps are painted in Nokia blue and they're all circles. Aesthetics aside this makes it hard to find a particular function at a glance. All third party apps have their normal icons though you can use an optional app drawer or just keep all of your apps on the home screen. Unfortunately, you can't customize the looks of your UI with themes. The notification shade is easy to get to and the toggles are big but there is no way to toggle the auto brightness mode from here.
    Inside the phone, we have a Snapdragon 430 chipset with an Octa-core CPU. It's still an entry-level mid-range processor. In my tests, it didn't stand out in any particular way. Would say that in regular use the smartphone ran smoothly, it was responsive and we didn't have any glitches to speak of. Even better the phone remained cool throughout my entire testing session.

    To wrap it up, the Nokia 6 has an awesome build quality but an entry-level chipset. The screen was very good across the board while the cameras are pretty low in quality. The Nokia 6 is a solid phone with an attractive price tag and it's a great phone to recommend.
