True to the leaks and rumors, HMD Global today has officially revealed the second-generation version of Nokia 6. At a glance, it might look rather similar to last year’s model but nevertheless, there are still plenty of things that separated them apart.
For example, the 2018 model now features highlighted outlines although the chassis still made from a single block of aluminum. Just like what shown on TENAA, the fingerprint sensor on the phone has been relocated to underneath its rear camera.
The biggest change that HMD Global has implemented to the second-generation Nokia 6 is its processor. Instead of having a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400-series chip, the company has opted for Snapdragon 630 alongside 4GB LPDDR4 RAM. The new model is also equipped with USB Type-C connector instead of Micro-USB as per its predecessor.
HMD Global has also adapted the Dual-Sight mode from Nokia 8 into the newly unveiled second-generation Nokia 6. However, the general specs of the phone’s camera are still identical to last year’s Nokia 6 with 16MP PDAF rear camera and 8MP fixed focus wide-angle front camera.
The same case also applies to its 5.5-inch full HD IPS display and 3,000mAh battery. 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).
