Nokia 6.1 was presumably announced in January as the Nokia 6 (2018) but it was never actually released. A new device with the Nokia 6.1 codename has been launched by HMD Global as the updated version of last year’s Nokia 6 and it’s already available on shopping stores.
It runs on the latest Android 8.1 Oreo with an octa-core processor, there’s a version with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. There’s a 16MP Zeiss powered camera for photography with a sleek looking body. Without further ado, meet the Nokia 6.1.
In this article we talk about:
Just like the Nokia 5.1 we reviewed earlier, the 6.1 comes with an aluminium alloy 6000 series body. There’s tall vertical foundation at the top middle as expected, we can see the Zeiss powered camera on top, while the dual-LED flash comes underneath.
The fingerprint scanner follows under the foundation and ready to give you that quick access to the device. It measures just 8.2mm in thickness and weighs 172g overall, which is light enough to operate with one hand. You can get it in Black/Copper, White/Iron and Blue/Gold color combinations.
Disappointingly, the Nokia 6.1 has a 16:9 aspect ratio screen, even though there’s no physical navigation buttons at the bottom bezel. The screen could have been taller if the company really wanted a full view display. Nonetheless, the side bezels doesn’t exist as well.
The 5.5-inch FHD+ IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen is absolutely stunning. The screen boasts of 1080 x 1920 pixels in resolution and 403 pixel per inch density, dishing out impressive visuals. It stretches up to 73.2% screen-to-body ratio with a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top.
Hardware and Software
It houses the Snapdragon 630 chip from Qualcomm with Octa-Core processor and 64-bit CPU architecture. The 8-Cores of processor here runs at a blazing speed of 2.2GHz with 14nm FinFET process technology. The Adreno 508 graphics processor controls graphics.
There are two versions in terms of storage and RAM, there’s a standard version with 4GB RAM and a 64GB storage space. While the cheaper variant comes with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage space. Both storage space are upgradeable up to 256GB using a memory card. The Nokia 6.1 runs on Android 8.1 Oreo and will receive Android P.
The 16MP rear shooter has f/2.0 aperture, 27mm lens size and 1.0µm pixel size for all your photography needs. Features on the camera includes phase detection autofocus, Zeiss optics, dual-LED dual-tone flash, geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, panorama, HDR and others. Shoot videos of 2160p and 1080p@30fps, while for selfies, the 8MP selfie camera has f/2.0 aperture and 1.12µm pixel size.
Powering the Nokia 6.1 is a 3000mAh non-removable Li-Ion battery with fast charging technology. With the fast charging feature, charging the battery from 0% to 100% shouldn’t take up to 1.7 hours.
