Nokia 6 (2018) runs on Android One

HMD Global has launched the 2nd generation of Nokia 6 which was the most durable Android smartphone of 2017. Nokia 6 (2018) comes with the same build quality as its predecessor but with added features and improvements in processing power, camera, and battery life. Nokia 6 (2018) runs on Google's Android One platform which means pure Android experience with super fast software updates.

New Nokia 6 (2018) is made out of a solid block of Series 6000 Aluminium and goes through an 11-hour two-tone anodizing and polishing process. The entire front of the Nokia 6 (2018) is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 making it a very durable phone that is built to last.

The camera on the Nokia 6 (2018) has been improved and now also comes with premium features like OZO Audio for Spatial Sound Recording and DualSight aka Bothie. The biggest improvement is in the optics as the global variant of Nokia 6 (2018) comes with a ZEISS Lens. HMD Global has also introduced the much awaited Pro Camera UI which allows users to control ISO, Shutter Speed, Exposure, Focus and White Balance. Nokia 6 (2018) has a 16MP main camera that can record videos in 4K and an 8MP front camera that will allow you to capture some stunning Selfies or should I say Bothies. :)
