The smartphone comes powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 coupled to 4G of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage capacity that can be increased up to 256GB via microSD card.

The Nokia 7 Plus, on the other hand, sports noticeably thinner bezels than the Nokia 6 (2018), and its display comes with rounded corners as well.

Under the hood, the device runs on Snapdragon 630 chip, a huge improvement over the Snapdragon 430 chip used on the previous generation. By shipping with Android Oreo out of the box, you'll be able to enjoy the latest Android features, including Picture-in-Picture for multitasking, Android Instant Apps to discover and run apps with minimal friction, 60 fantastic new emojis and battery-maximising features like limiting background app use. The Nokia 7 Plus also comes with a dual camera setup on the back, and Carl ZEISS optics.

With the recent Rs. 500 discount on Amazon India, the Nokia 6 now retails at Rs. 12,999 from the original price of Rs. 14,999. The company is also likely to keep rolling out Android Security updates and may get Android P as well. It is also protected by Gorilla Glass 5 protection on the top.

If you've been following Nokia for sometime now, you would know that the company is packing all its devices with Android One.

RAM: The Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 6 (2018) are offered with 6GB, 4GB and 3GB of RAM, respectively. Though the Sirocco is a premium device, it has a merely 5-megapixel front camera and an older Snapdragon 835 chipset that make it incapable of challenging the iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus. The 7 Plus packs a 6.0-inch IPS LCD screen along with FHD+ resolution (1080x2160 pixels) in 18:9 aspect ratio with 403 PPI pixel density. Imaging features also are of the same configuration- 16-megapixel camera sensor with PDAF, f/2.0 aperture lens accompanied by a dual-tone LED flash and Zeiss optics at the back and an 8-megapixel, f/2.0 84-degree wide-angle lens shooter on the front for selfies. Powered by 3800 mAh battery, the phone boasts 2-day battery life even with live video streaming. It is priced at Euro 249 and will be going on sale starting early April. It is backed by a 3,260mAh non-removable battery and fast charging.

It appears that the fingerprint scanner will be on the front, so you might not get that huge screen to body ratio as some phones.
