Nokia 6 (2018) is official and it's a speedy upgrade

Nokia 6 (2018) is official and it's a speedy upgrade

Most importantly for us in the United States, the question is whether the new Nokia 6 will ever launch here.

We saw a leaked breakdown of the upcoming second-generation Nokia 6 just yesterday, and that report turned out to be pretty accurate. It comes with a more capable chipset and a reduced footprint, but otherwise shares most of its hardware with the original Nokia 6.

There's a circular fingerprint scanner on the back of Nokia 6 (2018). The old Nokia 6 had capacitive buttons painted onto the front of the device, along with a center-mounted front fingerprint reader. The new model is also equipped with USB Type-C connector instead of Micro-USB as per its predecessor. The front camera is an 8MP F/2.2 sensor.

The Nokia 6 (2018) is priced at CNY 1499 (roughly $230 or Rs 14660) for its 32GB model and CNY 1699 (approx $260 or Rs 16610) for its 64GB one.

Just like other Nokia smartphones, the Nokia 6 (2018) comes with stock OS - Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box - and has promised an Android Oreo update. The company is also using the same bold colour scheme around the camera module and the fingerprint scanner.

A 3000mAh battery is present in this new Nokia 6 (2018).

Nokia 6 (2018), as mentioned by the Chinese e-commerce website before, will come in two versions based on storage capacities.

The Nokia 6 (2018) carries the same 16MP unit like the first-gen Nokia 6 but this time around HMD has integrated the "Dual-Sight technology" on its new Android smartphone.

Nokia 6 features a 5.5 inch IPS LCD Full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and a pixel density of 403 ppi. It runs on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 630 processor clocking 2.2GHz speed coupled with 4GB of RAM. We can expect HMD to launch the Nokia 6 2018 in India soon enough but the company will have to get the pricing right on this one. While the 2017 model has a fingerprint sensor placed below the display at the front, the 2018 model has it at the back below the elongated capsule enclosure that includes a single rear camera and flash.

The Nokia 6 (2018) is expected to go on sale on January 10. The processor upgrade alone will make a huge difference in the power and fluidity of the phone, making it more than worth a buy if you're now rocking the 2017 model.
