Nokia is all set to launch its second generation of Android smartphones, and the race begins with the most loved Nokia 6‘s successor called Nokia 6 (2018). Yes, you heard us right, the best Nokia smartphone now has a successor with the required improvement over the original model.

The smartphone was spotted on TENAA, which is a Chinese telecom regulatory authority which certifies each and every smartphone that launches in China. So, Nokia 6 (2018) will first head towards China and by the later time of the year, it will launch in the remaining markets like India. Here are the complete details on the HMD Global‘s newest offering.

In terms of design and aesthetics, this model combines the best of Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 with additional improvements. The metal unibody design continues here with a nicely placed rear-facing camera. Due to the bezel-less design, the fingerprint scanner has been moved to back, which sits parallel to the camera module.

The smartphone offers a bezel-less 18:9 aspect ratio screen with a strange 1080p IPS LCD screen spread across 5.5-inch screen size, protected by 2.5D curved tempered glass on the top. Under the hood, the smartphone is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 Octa-core processor, paired with 4 GB LPDDR4x RAM and 32 GB or 64 GB onboard flash storage with a dedicated micro SD card slot.

In terms of connectivity, the smartphone offers dual SIM card slots with 4G LTE and VoLte support on both the slots. Additional connectivity features like Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, support for dual channel WiFi are also present.

On to the camera, the smartphone offers a 16 MP main camera with a dual tone dual LED flash with 4K video recording capability and an 8 MP selfie camera with 1080p video recording capability. We are still sad for the fact that, the smartphone hasn’t implemented the dual camera setup like the most of the competition.

The Nokia 6 (2018) is based on stock Android Nougat 7.1.1 (according to TENAA listing) and expected to feature Android Oreo 8.0 soon after the launch of the smartphone. The battery remains at 3000 mAh (sealed Li-ion battery) with support for Qualcomm Quick charge 3.0 capability. This time the smartphone is likely to feature USB type C port over the micro USB port for faster data transfer speeds with USB OTG support as well.

Looking at the specifications, the smartphone is likely to retail for $300 (₹19,000) for the 4 GB RAM and 32 GB storage variant and the 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage is likely to cost ₹21,000.  So, what is your opinion on this improved Nokia 6? Share your views in the comment box.
