Nokia 6: Specs price features and everything you need to know

Nokia has already kicked off their 2018 innings with the second generation Nokia 6 which comes with updated internals and new features such as Bothie. The device is expected to be HMD Global's first take on Android Go, which is Google's stripped down version of Android 8.0 Oreo for the smartphones that feature 1GB or lesser RAM and storage. The smartphone is slated to launch at MWC 2018 in late February.

A user on China's Baidu website posted two images that show a Nokia device. However, when looked at carefully, there is one difference between the two images. These alleged pics of the Nokia 1 show its back panel. All that it shows is the single camera at the back, below which sits the LED light. The camera and LED lens on one image is covered by a polycarbonate, whereas the module is surrounded by glass in the other photo. Previously, it has been reported that Nokia 1 will be the first handset to run on Android Oreo (Go Edition), Google's toned-down version of its latest Android Oreo operating system. This could mean that Nokia is still firming up the final design. The device will fall into the entry-level smartphone segment. From what we can comprehend, the supposed Nokia 1 is encased in polycarbonate with rounded edges. As for pricing, GizmoChina reports that Nokia 1 will launch at about 5,999 rubles, which is around Rs 6,000 on conversion.
