Coming to the specifications of the three smartphones, The Nokia 6 (2018) comes with a 5.5-inch full HD display with a resolution of 1080 X 1920 pixels and 16:9 aspect ratio. Overall the device feels bold and Nokia claims to have built the device from a single block of aluminum for extra durability.

- HMD also announced the launch of the Nokia Mobile Shop which is an online store where customers can buy the Nokia phones and accessories in India. Nokia 8 Sirocco will be available from April 30 via Flipkart, Nokia Mobile Shop and select retail stores. Apart from the partnership with e-commerce players, the company has started selling smartphones through Nokia Mobile Shop Z (nokia.com/phones).

Under the hood, the device runs on Snapdragon 630 chip, a huge improvement over the Snapdragon 430 chip used on the previous generation. It comes with 64GB on-board storage which can be further expanded up to 128GB using MicroSD Card.

This phone has fingerprint sensor on the back and also comes with Facial Unlock feature. All of this is backed by 3000mAh battery with fast charging support that promises to deliver up to 16 hours of talk time and up to 507 hours of standby time. With an impressive 2-day battery life, you can extract every bit of juice from the already powerful 3800 mAh battery, even when you are broadcasting your #Bothie videos live on Facebook or YouTube. The Snapdragon 660 chipset powers it with 4 GB of RAM. If it follows the same pattern as its 2017 counterpart, the device should get a 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM option as well. It sports a 12MP primary camera with a f/1.7 aperture along with a 13MP secondary camera with f/2.6 aperture. It comes with fingerprint sensor on its back side.

Still, stock Android Oreo felt smooth as silk during my limited experience with the phone.

That's surprising as nearly all other recently launched flagships of other brands are shipped with Snapdragon 845 SoC.

The phone supports Bothie camera and the brand's OZO audio. The smartphone will have a 41MP wide-angle lens with LED flash, Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) and variable f/1.5/f/2.4 variable aperture as seen on Samsung Galaxy S9.
