The Nokia 6 is reportedly receiving a latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat update.

HMD Global, the Finnish company with exclusive rights to market the Nokia brand, is working on two new high-end smartphones.

Can Nokia and BlackBerry stand on their own, or is it all hype and nostalgia?

The phone runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat with stock interface. The update, which has the build number 00CN_3_170, is a quite hefty update at 369 MB, so downloading the update through Wi-Fi is recommended. Changelog states that it will improve power saving and management of background applications. The update for the Nokia 6 brings support for 4G and 3G dual-SIM standby. That's not all - the Nokis USB driver is also said to gain an update as well as the version of preload app.

As far as specifications are concerned, Nokia 6 has an aluminium unibody design. Last but not the least, the company has updated the Google Security patch to April 2017. The fact that Nokia already started to roll out the Android 7.1.1 update to its users suggests they are committed to staying on the market, not only making a passing comeback. Globally, the price of the Nokia 6 is Euros 229 and the ARTE edition carries a tag of Euros 299. All of these models are rumored to see a worldwide launch by the end of the second quarter of 2017. Envisioned by Phone Designer on Facebook, the phone has a 5.5-inch screen with a 2:1 aspect ratio and packs front-firing stereo speakers despite the exceedingly thin bezels on all sides.

HMD Global has shared that the global variant of the Nokia 6 will be released this spring, which includes the United States. The Nokia 6 has been crafted from aluminum and houses a Snapdragon 430 processor. Going by the ongoing gossips, the company is also working on Nokia 7 and Nokia 8 smartphones. It is expected to feature 64GB or 128GB of built-in storage, a microSD card slot, and 6GB RAM. The smartphone also houses a 3,000 mAh battery.
