More on look and appearance:

Nokia 6 has a classic look and seems to be cut out from a solid chunk of aluminum. The handset measures 154 x 75.8 x 7.85mm in dimensions and can be easily gripped within the palm. The gadget is available in four different shades, namely copper, silver, tempered blue and matte black. In addition to that, there is also a glossy Arte Black exclusive edition as well.

The negatives:

Experts point out that the handset lacks ingress protection. Moreover, its battery capacity should’ve better been higher than 3,000 mAh to allow users be on the safer side.

While Nokia 3 is already up for sale and available with top retailers in the country, people have to wait further to grab the other two handsets. Registrations for both the phones will open only in July.
