Today during MWC 2018, Nokia unveiled a pair of mid-range Android Oreo-powered smartphones that will go on sale this April. Called the Nokia 6 and Nokia 7 Plus, the handsets aim to provide a premium experience for not all that much cash.
Starting with the former, the Nokia 6 uses an aluminum build for its design which doesn’t look half bad. On the front, you’ll find a standard 5.5-inch Full HD IPS LCD display which sticks to the classic 16:9 aspect ratio. Inside sits a Snapdragon 630 processor, up to 4GB of RAM, up to 64GB of storage, a 3,000mAh battery with USB-C charging, a headphone jack, and a 16MP rear camera with an f/2.0 aperture, Zeiss optics, and a dual-tone flash. Of course, you also get an 8MP f/2.0 selfie camera. Additionally, it includes a rear-mounted fingerprint reader and face unlocking.
As for the latter, the Nokia 7 Plus takes things up a notch with an aluminum build coated with a ceramic paint finish. On its front sits a 6-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD 18:9 display with rounded corners. Below that, you’ll find a Snapdragon 660 chip, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a 3800mAh battery with fast charging, a headphone jack, and the same dual Zeiss-branded cameras found on the Nokia 8 Sirocco. It also includes a rear fingerprint reader and facial recognition for security.
The new Nokia 6 for 2018 will run for €279 (about $340) when it launches, while the Nokia 7 Plus will cost €399 (about $490).
