Nokia 6.1 (2018)

Announced a year after its first comeback model, Nokia is updating the Nokia 6 with the Nokia 6 2018. Nokia 6 2018 has a few changes, but it still looks mostly the same. Priced comfortably between Rs. 25,000 and Rs. 28,000, depending on the version you purchase, the Nokia 6 2018 is a decent mid-ranger with close to stock Android.

Same quality build, but bolder

At first look, there’s not much that distinguishes the two Nokia 6, except if you stare a little longer, you’ll feel like the 2018 version has a bolder and premium look to it. Maybe we can accredit that to the black and gold color option of the new model. The phone is all matte black with gold accents on the outlines of the chassis. This pattern can be seen on every side of the phone. It’s nothing monumental, but aesthetically very pleasing.

Besides the color options, the Nokia 6 2018 has moved the fingerprint scanner to the back of the phone below the cameras. We still have the same 5.5-inch screen up front and front camera above it. On the back, we have the same camera setup as well. Also, Nokia 6 2018 is 0.3mm more thinker than last year’s model and weighs 3g more. Another slight difference, and a welcome one, is that the Nokia 6 2018 now has a micro-USB type C port.

Same old good screen

Why fix what isn’t broken? This seems to sum up Nokia’s decision on the screen of the Nokia 6 2018 since it still sports a 5.5-inch 1080p LCD screen. Naturally, the pixel density remains the same at 403ppi. Surprisingly, the aspect ratio isn’t in line with the new trend of 18:9 displays, since it still has the older 16:9 aspect ratio.

Bothie breaches the affordable segment

The newest thing about the camera on the new Nokia 6 2018 is that it has support for the “Bothie” feature which was previously exclusive to the Nokia 7 and 8. The Bothie feature allows you to take pictures with both your front and back camera at the same time so you’re not left out of group pics. How practical is it is another debate in itself, but the feature is pretty slick.

Other than that, we have the same 8MP camera with an f/2.0 aperture and a 16MP camera on the back, also with an f/2.0 aperture. The main camera has phase detection autofocus and a dual tone-LED flash to accompany it. Both cameras can record up to 1080p at 30 frames per second.

Processor gets justice

The biggest thorn in the side of last year’s Nokia 6.2 was its older less powerful Snapdragon 430 processor. This year the Nokia 6 is blessed with the Snapdragon 630, all the while keeping its affordable price tag. It still comes in 2 options 32GB/64GB, both having 4GB of RAM. The battery is something we would have loved to see updated, alas it’s still the same 3000mAh cell. Finally, the Nokia 6 2018 ships with Android 7.1.1 Nougat which is very displeasing, however Android 8.0 Oreo is coming to it very soon.

Nokia 6.1 2018 pros:
  • It has a lot of RAM – 4GB of it
  • It has capable cameras and the Bothie feature
  • Near stock Android with promised fast updates
  • Quality build and looks
Nokia 6.1 2018 cons:
  • It comes with Android 7.1.1 out of the box, an Android version over a year old.
  • Same old battery capacity
