Premium build materials
The Nokia 6 has that wow factor with a smooth metal exterior that is made from a solid seamless precision-milled aluminium block. The milling process takes 55 minutes and this is followed by hours of polishing and two anodising processes.

The result is a premium look with a body that measures 7.85mm thick (8.4mm at the camera bump). The Nokia has five colours variants including Arte Black, Matte Black, Copper, Silver and Tempered Blue.
If you would really like to see just how good the Nokia 6 looks, then watch the design video below.
The Nokia 6 has a large 5.5” Full HD IPS LCD display with wide colour production. The resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels, which equates to 403 pixels per inch. The display is bright (450 nits) with sunlight readability and wide viewing angles.
The Arte Black version of the Nokia 6 (which will be a little more expensive) has slightly better specs compared to the other colour variants. This means that you get 4GB RAM instead of 3GB RAM and an internal memory of 64GB instead of 32GB.
All colours have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core processor and a front that is made from 2.5D sculpted Corning Gorilla Glass.
Phone Set Up
The Nokia 6 follows the path of many other 2017 smartphones and offers security through a fingerprint sensor, which is built into the home key. Moving content over from an old Android or Apple iPhone is fairly straightforward and the internal memories that we mentioned earlier can be boosted through the up to 128GB microSD card slot.
Sound and software
The Nokia 6 has good musical attributes with Dolby Atmos sound, projected by a dedicated smart amplifier and dual speakers. This gives music playback a cinema sounding experience with deep bass and clear clarity.
The Nokia 6 runs on Google’s Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system and this is a clutter free version, so there is no manufacturer’s bloatware filling up the internal memory.
Nokia has promised that the Nokia 6 with stay up to date, with regular software updates.
Camera & Video
Nokia hasn’t made a big song and dance about the camera on the Nokia 6. While the camera app is pretty much stock, it is paired up with a high resolution 16MP lens and fast phase detection auto focus (PDAF).

In low light, capturing natural looking colours is aided by a dual tone flash. On the opposite side, there is a 8MP selfie camera with a 84-degrees field of view.
