Here’s everything you need to know about the Nokia 6, including full specs, the best new features and the UK price and release date.

Nokia kickstarted 2017 in style by launching its first mobile phones in what seems like bloody ages – the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6.

The Nokia 6 is the more premium device of that trio and packs some solid specs for a mid-range mobile, offering up a spacious 5.5-inch display, plus 16 and 8-megapixel cameras for snapping your everyday existence. Not to mention some tasty Android Nougat action.

However, we’re halfway through the year and so far no sign of the new Nokias. Thankfully that wait is about to end, as these blowers are due to hit the UK in the next two months.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Nokia 6, including its best features, UK price and release date. Don’t miss our hands-on Nokia 6 review either, to see our early thoughts on this all-new Android.

Nokia 6 in a nutshell: Features

The Nokia 6 has plenty of appeal for the average consumer, and here’s the best features that we can’t wait to check out.

Nokia 6 should appeal to media fans

With its Full HD 5.5-inch screen and Dolby Atmos support, the Nokia 6 is built for enjoying shows, movies and other content on the go. That spacious display should pump out pleasingly crisp images and you get plenty of storage space for your media collection too. Good news if your data allowance is a bit pants.

Nokia 6 is a smart snapper

You get a 16-megapixel rear camera which features phase detection autofocus, so the lens can quickly and cleanly snap onto your subject and take a photo in almost no time at all. A two-tone LED flash should prove very handy for night shots too.

You also get an 8-megapixel camera around the front of the phone, so the Nokia 6 can take sharp, detail-packed selfies.

Nokia 6 features smart security

A built-in fingerprint sensor can be used to unlock the Nokia 6 quickly and efficiently, while proving secure enough to keep out any cheeky beggars who try gaining access without your permission. We’re looking at you, little Johnny.

Nokia 6 can hopefully keep going and going

The Nokia 6 packs a rather sizeable 3000mAh battery, which should hopefully mean well over a day of battery life between charges. And since the Snapdragon 430 processor supports Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 tech, we should hopefully be able to power up the Nokia 6 from empty to full in just over an hour.
