It appears the Nokia 6 (2018) will feature some meaningful upgrades, including a more capable chipset. Not only has its specifications been revealed on TENAA, the mid-range phone is expected to be announced on 5 January this Friday.
Based on its TENAA listing, the new Nokia 6 will be faster than its predecessor, thanks to its newer Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset – the original Nokia 6 was only powered by a Snapdragon 430 processor. On top of that, the fingerprint sensor has been moved to the back of the phone too.
Beyond the faster chip and slightly redesigned chassis, the 2018 Nokia 6 isn’t all that different from its predecessor. It still comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD display, 4GB of RAM, two choices of internal storage (32GB or 64GB), a microSD card slot, as well as a 3,000mAh battery.
Aside from that, the Nokia 6 also features a 16MP rear camera and an 8MP front-facing shooter. Unfortunately, the TENAA listing also revealed that the upcoming smartphone will only ship with Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box – no Android Oreo here.
The Nokia 6 (2018) is expected to be launched this Friday on 5 January in China. Considering its modest hardware, it’ll be interesting to see how much the device will retail at.
