Nokia 6 2nd Generation announced with better CPU, OZO Audio and Bothie mode

31

As expected, HMD Global has just taken the wraps off another Android smartphone, a small Nokia 6 upgrade. Dubbed Nokia 6 2nd Generation, the handset will be exclusively available for purchase in China for $230.

Unlike the previous Nokia 6 model that packs an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, the 2nd Generation comes with an upgraded 2.2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 CPU.

The new Nokia 6 2nd Gen comes in two variations: 32GB and 64GB. Both versions include 4GB RAM though. The former costs $230, whereas the latter will sell for around $245 outright. Both can already be reserved in China, but they will only hit the shelves on January 10.

Another difference between the two Nokia 6 smartphones is the new model features OZO Audio recording, an advanced spatial audio technology with 3D capture and playback capabilities. It offers high fidelity 360-degree sound captured with the smartphone.


There are no changes when it comes to photography features, as both phones come with the same configuration: 16-megapixel rear-facing camera and 8-megapixel selfie snapper. Still, the new Nokia 6 2nd Gen adds the Bothie mode that only comes with the Nokia 7 and Nokia 8.

Also, since Nokia 6 2nd Gen does not come with a physical home button like the previous model, the fingerprint sensor has been moved to the back of the phone. It's got the same 5.5-inch display with full HD (1080p) resolution

Unfortunately, the same goes for the software since HMD did not include Android Oreo on the new Nokia 6 2nd Gen. However, even though the smartphone ships with Android 7.1.1 Nougat, HMD promised an Oreo update will soon be released for the Nokia 6 2nd Gen.
