At MWC 2018, Nokia (via HMD Global) fired at all cylinders with an impressive line-up of devices. While the classic 8110 reboot satisfies the non-smartphone segment, and the glorious flagship Nokia 8 Sirocco at the top end, Nokia also has a pair affordable mid-range Android phones to offer.

The all-new Nokia 6 is a follow-through from the popular Nokia 6 from last year. Nokia has retain the much loved premium metal body, but now comes with a few new colours: Blue Gold, Black Copper and White.

It’s very good looking, and the most boxy design in the current Nokia stable. It’s milled out of a single block of 6000 series aluminium, and has diamond-cut edges with a bold colour accent.

The improved device sports a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS display protected by Gorilla Glass 3, a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 coupled with 3GB of RAM + 32GB of storage or 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage.

Nokia says the new chipset offers 60% better performance compared to its predecessor.

As expected, the new device sports a good camera, this time a 16MP f/2.0 rear shooter with PDAF and ZEISS optics, capable of 4K video recording.

The front is an 8MP f/2.0 unit and working in tandem with the rear camera can capture a “bothie” with Dual-Sight mode.

It runs Android One, based on Android Oreo, giving you a pure stock Android experience.

The new Nokia 6 will be available in April for EUR279/MYR1,343.
