Nokia 6 With 4GB RAM Launched in India at ₹16999

HMD Global on Thursday launched the 4GB RAM variant of Nokia 6 (review) in India. The company has also changed its preferred e-commerce partner for the particular device.

The new variant will be sold exclusively via Flipkart and will go on sale starting February 20.

Notably, this is a new variant of last year's smartphone and should not be confused with the Nokia 6 (2018), which comes with a Snapdragon 630 SoC, and was launched by the Finnish company in January this year.

Other than the increased RAM and storage on the new variant, all other specifications remain the same.

Other than RAM and storage, rest of the specifications on the Nokia 6 remains the same, as when it was first introduced previous year.

The Nokia 6 will have a hard time competing with the brand new Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, which is sold starting INR 13,999 and packs much better specifications than the smartphone.

Ajey Mehta, Vice President India, HMD Global said in a statement - "The Nokia 6 has emerged as the one of our most successful phones receiving plaudits for its design, durability and functionality from its countless fans". The device features a full HD display screen of 5.5-inch and a resolution of 1920 X 1080 pixels.

For those who were impressed by the Nokia 6 build quality but felt that the device lacked that extra punch, there is now a 4GB variant of the Nokia 6 with 64GB of internal storage in India.

Similar to the 3GB variant, the Nokia 6 features a 16-megapixel rear camera with PDAF, a f/2.0 aperture, a 1-micron pixel sensor, and dual-tone LED flash. While at the front, we have an 8-megapixel front-facing camera with a 1.12um sensor and f/2.0 aperture for selfies and video calling.

The bump in RAM and storage commands a slight premium compared to the regular Nokia 6. The internal storage is expandable via microSD card (up to 128GB). For connectivity, the smartphone supports options like dual-SIM support, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v4.1, GPS, AGPS, NFC and micro USB port. This package is backed by a 3000mAh battery. While it comes with the Dolby Atmos, the smartphone creates powerful moving audio that seems to flow all around users.
