HMD Global announces second generation Nokia 6

HMD Global announces second generation Nokia 6

With more processing muscle, the new Nokia phone will be able to render improved image processing in low light, deliver better battery life and optimise device performance.

HMD Global has also addressed the complaint regarding the underpowered CPU. The front camera is an 8MP F/2.2 sensor. The most visible change, however, is the relocation of the front-facing fingerprint scanner to the back. This means, unlike last year's Nokia 6 - that came with a front-mounted fingerprint scanner and physical capacitive keys for navigation - this year's Nokia 6 comes with on-screen navigation keys. Unfortunately the OS hasn't changed much, either: the new Nokia 6 is running an old version of Android, 7.1.1, with an upgrade to "Android 8.0 Oreo" (still not the latest version of Android!) promised at some nebulous point in the future. Many would, in fact, even say that the new Nokia 6 is what last year's Nokia 6 should have been in the first place.

The world will be watching what you do, US warns Iran
It has said those restrictions will be lifted on Friday, and there were signs Thursday that it had begun easing some of them. On Saturday, Iranians could access the photo-sharing site Instagram again after it was blocked for the past week.

While the new 5.5-incher retains a large part of its predecessor's specs and features, starting with a conventional 16:9 aspect ratio and Full HD screen resolution, it's very hard to argue with its compelling value proposition. Like clockwork, HMD has launched the second generation of the Nokia 6, around the same time frame, once again in China. The micro USB port is replaced by the USB Type-C port for the Nokia 6 (2018). The smartphone supports fast charging with a battery of 3000mAh.

Elsewhere, the speaker setup on-board the original Nokia 6 came with dual amplifiers and support for Dolby Atmos sound technology.

Ice, freezing rain possible Sunday
As the cold clears out some chances for rain will move in starting Monday night, when a 30 percent chance is expected. It was so cold that SCE&G reported its customers set a new electricity usage record.

The second-gen Nokia 6 is available for pre-order in Black and Silver color options for CNY1,499 ($230/£170/€190) for the 32GB version, while the 64GB one costs CNY1,699 ($260/£190/€215). We can also create the Bothie effect using both the front and back camera sensor.

But the handset has already been revealed on Nokia's official website for the China region, giving fans an early look at what to expect from the phone.

State Dept. official: We are not pursuing regime change in Iran
In his latest tweet on Monday, the USA president said, "The [Iranian] people have little food, big inflation and no human rights". Peek's comments come as the president and high-level officials in the Trump administration voice support for protesters in Iran.

The report also claimed that the smartphone would be available for purchase exclusively through Amazon India at present.
