HMD kicked off the year with the launch of the Nokia 6 (2018). The device was launched exclusively in China then, though, but was later unveiled to the rest of the world at MWC in February. After so long, it will finally be available in the US, with sales expected to begin on May 6.

The Nokia 6 (2018) has been renamed to become the Nokia 6.1 in the global market. That name, of course, properly reflects the fact that it's an improved refresh of the first generation Nokia 6, HMD's first smartphone that was released in February last year. It also alludes to the fact that the device is an an Android One offering. The Nokia 6 (2018) isn't, for obvious reasons—it was launched in China, a country allergic to Google's services.

The Nokia 6.1 is powered by a Snapdragon 630, and features a FHD 16:9 5.5-inch display, up to 4 GB of RAM, up to 64 GB of storage, a single 16 MP rear camera, an 8 MP selfie camera, and a 3000 mAh battery chargeable via Type-C USB port.

The device will see stiff competition from devices like the Honor 7X and Motorola's new G-series devices. It will go on sale on Amazon on May 6, and with a US$269 price tag.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
