Nokia 6 (2018) Priced At €279 In The Netherlands

HMD Global debuted the new Nokia 6 (2018) smartphone at Mobile World Congress. However, the company did not mention when the device would be available or how much it would cost. This is pretty common for trade show announcements, especially when talking about all the different markets out there. And that's because launch dates and prices will vary in different markets. But Dutch retailer, Belsimpel has listed the 3GB of RAM, 32GB model coming in at €279 with the 4GB/64GB model being priced at €299. It will likely be around that same price, in other parts of Europe. In the US, there's no pricing noted, but it'll likely be around $350 or so, and it is slated for a May release. It should be launching slightly earlier in Europe (likely around April), as that is HMD Global's main market for Nokia smartphones.

The Nokia 6 (2018) is in the higher-end of the mid-range tier, sporting a 5.5-inch Full HD display, with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset powering the device. There's either 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage or 4GB of RAM and 64GB of on-board storage available. There is also a micro SD card slot available for expanding the storage here, up to 256GB of extra storage. It does have a single camera, a 16-megapixel sensor on the back, with phase-detection auto-focus. While the front-facing camera is a 8-megapixel sensor. This is all powered by a 3000mAh battery as well, which is also non-removable. That large battery should keep the Nokia 6 (2018) running throughout the day.

HMD Global also noted that all of its smartphones moving forward are going to be either Android Go or Android One smartphones. The Nokia 6 (2018) isn't an inexpensive, and low-end smartphone, so it falls into the Android One category. What that essentially means is that the device is sporting stock Android, with a few bits added in from HMD Global - like the camera app and software - and it should also get faster updates. That is actually something that HMD Global and Nokia have been touting over the past year, pushing out updates faster since it is keeping its software rather "vanilla" compared to other companies.
