Currently China-only, the new Nokia 6 will also become available in Europe in April, priced at 279€ (around £245).
The new Nokia 6 is an aluminium-body Snapdragon 630 (up from 430) smartphone with 3GB/4GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB of storage and Nokia's Bothie camera, with 16Mp at the back and 8Mp at the front.
It also has a hybrid dual-SIM slot, a rear-facing fingerprint scanner, a USB-C port, headphone jack and a 3,000mAh battery that can charge to 50 percent in 30 minutes.
A two-tone device it's available in White/Iron, Blue/Gold and Black/Copper.
