This smartphone runs on Android v7.1. out of the box. HDMI Global recently announced that this device and other devices in the series will receive Android O update. Like the other new Nokia phones, there is no bloat ware on the Nokia 6. You will find the usual Google apps and the other basic apps when you buy this phone.
You get 32GB built-in storage. This is what you get in most mid-range phones. A memory card slot (doubles as the second SIM slot) is available to those who wish to have more storage space in their phones (up-to 256GB).
This smart handset has an awesome camera profile on paper. It comes with a 16 megapixels camera on the back side with f/2.0 lens and an 8 megapixels front camera with f/2.0 lens. Both camera captures photos with good detail when used in areas with adequate light. Day-time photos are clear and have punchy colors.
Unfortunately, the camera app is not as fast as expected. The cameras also struggles in low light areas. The dual-tone flash on the back does not have a big effect in dark settings.
