Nokia 6 (2018) may be unveiled today; here're the key features

Coming to Nokia 6 (2018), it features the same 5.5-inch Full HD resolution display that we saw on Nokia 6.

Nearly a year before the first ever Android-powered Nokia phone broke cover, HMD Global is launching a new version.

Hype for the Nokia 6 (2018) has just about reached a climax.

This could affect other Android phone owners too; if phones reach a certain age, manufacturers often decide to stop updating them with new software.

The 2018 version has a 16MP rear camera sensor with dual-tone LED flash and PDAF lens.

Nokia's new handset lands as a successor to last year's first-generation Nokia 6, which generally scored well amongst tech reviewers.

TENAA has already revealed the main specs of the Nokia 6 (2018). The 2018 model has the same display size, namely 5.5-inch, however, the body of the smartphone got slightly smaller. The chipset is paired with Adreno 508 GPU for graphics, 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM for system operations, and 32GB/64GB internal storage. The smartphone supports dual-SIM, 4G LTE (with VoLTE), dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 5, GPS, USB Type-C and 3.5mm headphone port.

The Nokia 6 (2018) is available in Black with orange accents and White with red accents.

The original Nokia 6, to recall, made its debut in China, so HMD chose to take the launch of its successor in the same country is not that surprising. But this device was much less powerful and it had an entry-level SoC, while the new model will sport a mid-range processor. Well now, we have come across yet another report which says that the Nokia 7 would be launched in India this month. It will be surely available in Europe as HMD Global is a Finnish company, but we have no idea about its launch date. There are a few design changes and processor updates in place, as well as an upgrade to the 360-degree OZO Audio advanced spatial sound recording. The original Nokia 6 is an all-metal cellphone carved out of 6000 series aluminum with chamfered edges and has a curved 2.5D Gorilla glass on the front.

Battery power is expected to be good at 3000mAh and could be launched with Android Nougat out-of-the-box.
