Nokia has launched three Android smartphones – the Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 along with the iconic Nokia 3310 and the Snake game at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 in Barcelona. Nokia 6, which was launched in China earlier, has gone global with a 5.5-inch full-HD screen with 2.5D Gorilla Glass. Nokia 6 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor. Nokia 6 packs 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage while Nokia 6 Arte Black Limited Edition packs 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage.
The Nokia 6 sports a unibody design that is made from a single block of 6,000 series aluminium, says HMD. It has a 16-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. According to HMD, the dual amplifiers will “deliver a 6 dB louder sound than a regular amp”. Nokia 6 also has Dolby Atmos — designed to give audio a more 3D sound effect.
Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, USB OTG, FM, 3G and 4G (with support for Band 40 used by some LTE networks in India). Sensors on the phone include Compass Magnetometer, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Ambient light sensor and Gyroscope. It packs a 3000mAh built-in battery.
