The Nokia 6 (2018) is smaller and fiercer than its predecessor was

The Nokia 6 (2018) is smaller and fiercer than its predecessor was”

While the devicehas appeared on athird-party website, it seems to be official. The Design looks far better than the OG Nokia 6. At the same time, HMD is bringing youth-centric features like Dual-Sight (and Bothie), to the masses with the new Nokia 6, to make sense for a wider audience. The phone has received upgrades in the processor and RAM department, while the rest of its specs are more or less similar to its predecessor.

Moreover, the device will have a 4 GB of RAM and it will reportedly come in two native storage configurations: 32 GB or 64 GB.

If and when it does arrive the current price is 1,499 yuan (around $230/£170/AU$295) for the 32GB version and 1,699 yuan (roughly $260/£195/AU$335) for the 64GB one, making it potentially slightly cheaper than the $229/£200/AU$399 original Nokia 6. The smartphone could debut at CES 2018, which is just around the corner.

Elsewhere, the Nokia 6 2018 comes with USB Type-C port for charging and data syncing unlike the original that came with a standard Micro USB 2.0 port. While the rumors that surfaced in the past few weeks already revealed many of its specs and features, we finally know everything there is to know about the new model. Nokia 6 (2018) ships with an improved processor, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and "Boathie" mode for camera, a feature first seen on Nokia 8.

The Snapdragon 630 is notably successor to the tried and tested Snapdragon 625, and we can expect only good things from it, because phones like the Moto X4 (that are based on Snapdragon 630) haven't disappointed. There is will be a 3,000mAh battery inside the phone, as suggested by some leaks. Word is HMD plans to launch the Nokia 7 in India later this month. It is not known if the phone will be released outside of China anytime soon but the new second-generation Nokia 6 will be launched in China on 10 January with a price tag of CNY 1499 (about RM 925) for the 32GB model while the 64GB edition will costs slightly higher at CNY 1699 (about RM 1,048).
