Featuring a “seamless aluminum unibody” design, the new Nokia 6 (2018) also got Zeiss lenses on its cameras, as well as facial recognition feature, all powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC (an upgrade from Snapdragon 430). HMD Global says that the CPU and GPU are 80 and 60 percent more powerful, respectively, than the former Nokia 6’s chips.
There’s also a Full HD (1920 x 1080) 2.5D 16:9 aspect ratio display, which is the same size as the former Nokia 6 at 5.5 inches, and no changes were made to the cameras’ megapixel counts from last year’s 16MP (rear) and 8MP (front).
However, the 3,000mAh battery charges to 50 percent in just 30 minutes, and the phone delivers an impressive 12.5 hours of video playback. There’s also support for Qi wireless charging, if that matters to you.
