Nokia 6 (2018) receives Android Oreo update at first boot

Nokia 6 (2018) receives Android Oreo update at first boot

This week, HMD announced its plan to roll out the second generation of its tremendously popular Nokia 6 in China ahead of the Chinese New Year.

The update also brings in the ability to install Google Services onto the phone as it is exclusive to China.

What's truly disappointing about this new phone is that it launched with Android 7.1.1 Nougat out the box - the same software version the original Nokia 6 came with nearly a year ago.

The studio is located at Kajurmarg in Mumbai where two TV serials were being shot- Bepanaah and Haasil- at that time. News agency Press Trust of India quoted officials saying that there were no causalities or injuries reported so far.

Unlike the original Nokia 6 model that was launched back in January past year with a front-facing fingerprint scanner, the Nokia 6 (2018) features a fingerprint scanner on the back. There's no word on when Nokia 6 (2018) will come to India.

But the second-gen Nokia 6 now includes an additional microphone to support Nokia's OZO Audio's spatial audio capture, a feature HMD also offers on the Nokia 8 flagship. The smartphone sports a rear fingerprint sensor and has maintained a 16:9 aspect ratio display, unlike the 18:9 standard these days.

The Oreo Beta Labs update for Nokia 6 is about 1.7GB in size, and users can download it only via Wi-Fi connection. Even the Nokia 5 recently got updated with a beta build for Android Oreo. But the company hasn't so far provided any official details on the latest Android update. The smartphone is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC, which is clocked at 2.2GHz, coupled with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM. The camera specifications are also identical, with 16MP front and 8MP back, but the "bothie" camera mode introduced with recent Nokia phones also makes its way to this latest offering.

It not only sets the tone for the entire evening but, on a more technical level, is really the only time that the host matters. He then turned to actor Tom Hanks and exclaimed: "And Hanks, you will never be vice president".

To recap, Nokia 6 was unveiled in January 2017.

At a glance, the Nokia 6 (2018) looks quite akin the original model, although a few key aspects have changed. 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. It measures 148.8x75.8x8.6mm and weighs 172 grams.
