Unlike a few manufacturers out there, the Nokia 6 also sports a headphone jack, and Bluetooth 5.0 radio so you have the option to plug in your earphones or just connect them wirelessly.

There is no dual-camera, and if you want to take advantage of selfies, there is an 8MP F/2.0 front camera with a 1.12um sensor.

The battery capacity remains the same, at 3,000mAh battery, plus a Cat. 4 LTE modem, dual-SIM card slots, and a microSD card slot. Now coming to one of the most attractive things about the refreshed phone; the price tag. The second-gen Nokia 6 is available for pre-order in Black and Silver color options for CNY1,499 (around $230) for the 32GB storage version, while the 64GB storage variant will set you back by CNY1,699 (around $260).

The actual sales of the smartphone will commence from June 10. With the first-gen Nokia 6 already present on Amazon, we have high hopes that the more powerful version will drop in sometime in the future.
