  • Nokia 6 vs Xiaomi Mi A1 Cut from the same cloth

The Nokia 6 (2018) is now available for preorder in China for ¥1,499 for the 32GB variant, and starts shipping on January 10.

The Nokia 6 (2018) comes with Android 7.1 Nougat pre-installed. This is something that hasn't changed between last year and this year, but Nokia says Android Oreo will come to the handset soon. The rollout of Android Oreo Beta Labs is not a commercial release of the newest Android version, but marks a precursor to the following stable version.

Nokia started the registration for Oreo Beta Labs update about a month ago, back in December 2017. One user even alleged that Dolby mode and Picture-in-Picture do not seem to work on his unit.

As of now, not every Nokia 6 user in India will be getting the update. The device still features "Bothie", an option to make both cameras to work at the same time which was intoduced in the Nokia 8 past year. The smartphone sports a rear fingerprint sensor and has maintained a 16:9 aspect ratio display, unlike the 18:9 standard these days. The original Nokia 6 was sold in Matte Black, Tempered Blue, Silver, and Copper, as well as an Arte Black Limited Edition version. Happily, that's not a problem for this 2018 edition: Qualcomm is still providing the processor muscle, but this time Nokia has picked the more potent Snapdragon 630 instead of the weedy 430. The storage in Nokia 6 is expandable to 128GB via a microSD card slot. The camera specifications are also identical, with 16MP front and 8MP back, but the "bothie" camera mode introduced with recent Nokia phones also makes its way to this latest offering. It is fueled by a 3,000mAh battery.

It also brings new features such as picture-in-picture, which allows users to do two tasks simultaneously, like checking the calendar while planning a party on a Duo video call. In terms of connectivity, the smartphone has FM radio, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth v5, GPS/ A-GPS, USB Type-C, and 3.5mm audio jack.
