Introducing the new Nokia 6

 

Built to last and designed to perform, the new Nokia 6 is over 60% faster than the award-winning original

 

HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, today announced the release of the new Nokia 6 to fans around the world. Building on the success of its predecessor, the new Nokia 6 packs even more powerful performance and great new features into a more compact, durable body.

 

Powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 Mobile Platform, the new Nokia 6 is over 60% faster than its award-winning predecessor. Also, now offering enhanced Dual-Sight, ZEISS optics, USB-C fast-charging, Nokia spatial audio and pure, secure and up-to-date Android Oreo™, the new Nokia 6 has been selected by Google to join the Android One family.

 

Taking the original’s precision craftsmanship to the next level the new Nokia 6 combines a unibody, made from a solid block of 6000 series aluminium, with an 11-hour two-tone anodising and polishing process. And by uniting a sculpted 2.5D display with damage-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass, the new Nokia 6’s compact and refined body is designed to stay beautiful for longer.

 

Built to last

Built on the well-loved design of its predecessor, you can be sure that the new Nokia 6 is durable enough to take life’s everyday knocks, all while being even more compact than the previous generation. But it’s not just about durability, the new Nokia 6 has also got the style to match. It is finished using a unique two-tone anodising process to stand out from the crowd.

 

The original Nokia 6 received great feedback on its display, colours and brightness. The new Nokia 6 takes it even further by increasing the screen-to-body ratio with a sharp 5.5-inch full HD IPS laminated display so you can enjoy a stunning immersive entertainment experience in a compact package.

 

Powerful real-life performance

The new Nokia 6 delivers a fast and smooth performance alongside great day-long battery life. With its 3000mAh battery with USB type-C fast-charging, you can charge 50% of your phone’s battery in just 30 minutes.

 

For the moments you want to relive again and again, the 16 MP ZEISS rear camera with dual-tone flash and 8MP selfie camera will ensure you capture every detail. And because there are always two sides to every story, the new Nokia 6 features enhanced Dual-Sight. Activating the front and back cameras at the same time, Dual-Sight lets you create your very own #Bothie and even stream it live on social media. Plus, with Nokia spatial audio, you can record high-fidelity surround sound on all your videos, giving you an immersive experience when you watch it back, you’ll feel like you were there again.

 

For added security and ease, the new Nokia 6 recognises you, giving you the ability to unlock your phone with your face, lightning fast. Available over the air in Q2.

 

Pure, secure and up-to-date reinforced with Android One commitment

The new Nokia 6 joins the Android One family, offering a high quality software experience designed by Google. The new Nokia 6 will stay fresh over time with the latest Google innovations and regular security updates. Because it runs pure Android, the new Nokia 6 comes with no unnecessary UI changes or hidden processes that would eat up your battery life or slow it down so you can enjoy your phone for longer. As with all Nokia smartphones in the Android One programme, the new Nokia 6 will come with a limited number of pre-installed apps so that you’ll get more storage space.

 

By shipping with Android Oreo™ out of the box, you’ll be able to enjoy the latest features, including Picture-in-Picture for multitasking, Android Instant Apps to discover and run apps with minimal friction, 60 fantastic new emojis and battery-maximising features like limiting background app use.

Available in three slick colour blends: Black/Copper, White/Iron and Blue/Gold, as well as two configurations of 3GB RAM/32GB ROM, which will be available in early April, or 4GB RAM/64GB ROM coming later, the New Nokia 6 will retail for a global average retail price of €279 excluding taxes and subsidies
