A Review Of The Specifications Of The Nokia 6.1


As stated earlier, this phone is an improvement of the Nokia 6.  It is a better phone in terms of design and hardware. The Finland based phone maker decided to move the fingerprint scanner from the front to the back.  This phone comes in a well-designed metal unibody that makes it a really good looking mid-range device.

Design & Display

The Nokia 6 2018 is one of the best looking phones under KSh. 25,000. The front area is glass and the rest of the body is constructed from metal.  The rear mounted fingerprint scanner is very responsive and is located below the rear camera module.  The Nokia 6.1 comes with a 5.5 inch screen with full HD resolution.  The display is protected from scratches and drop damage by Corning Gorilla Glass.

Performance & Cameras

This phone is powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core processor coupled with 3/4GB of RAM.  The Snapdragon 630 processor and the adequate RAM help to ensure that the phone performs well even when several apps are in use at the same time.  You can use this smartphone for gaming without worrying about lagging. Nokia 6.1 ships with a 16MP camera on the rear and an 8MP front facing shooter.  Nokia 6 2018’s rear camera is accompanied by an LED flash that helps it to capture good quality photos even in places with low light.  The 8MP camera captures good quality selfies and is also perfect for video calls.

Battery & Storage

This phone is powered by a 3000mAH battery that is not removable.  The battery can easily power the smartphone for a full day on single charge. Unfortunately, this phone does not support fast charging technology.  The Nokia 6.1 has two storage options – 32GB and 64GB.  If you require more storage, there is a hybrid microSD slot that supports cards of up to 256GB.
