HMD Global upgrades Nokia 6 smartphone for China launch

Nokia 3310 4G featured phone spotted certified on TENAA Nokia 6 (2018) now official with more RAM and better processor

For instance, many Android phones are now affected by the Meltdown and Spectre bugs, but new Nokia 6 owners will likely have to wait to receive the full fix.

Launched in January past year, the Nokia 6 was HMD Globals first smartphone, which arrived as a mid-range offering.

However, if you are expecting the 2018 refresh of the Nokia 6 to be drastically different from the original Nokia 6, then you're in for major disappointment.

The fingerprint scanner in Nokia 6 is embedded into the home button on the front. The new Nokia 6 is shorter than the old one while having the same screen (in terms of size and aspect ratio). In order to accomplish this, HMD Global needed to move the fingerprint sensor to the back panel of the handset.

The biggest change that HMD Global has implemented to the second-generation Nokia 6 is its processor. However, Nokia 6 (2018) now supports "Bothie" mode that lets users capture and record from the front and rear camera simultaneously.

Nokia 6 (2018) and Nokia 8 both features a 16MP rear sensor with f/2.0 aperture and PDAF and LED flash, along with an 8MP front camera. On the hardware side, it seems that there will be an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630, which is the successor of the Snapdragon 625 and 626 chips and includes an Adreno 508 GPU.

The original Nokia 6 gets 4GB RAM along with 32GB or 64GB storage variant, though the 64GB limited version was never launched in the Indian market. The memory will be expandable with a micro SD up to 128 GB. And the 2018 version also has come up with two features unique to this segment- Bluetooth 5.0 and USB Type-C. Weighing 172 grams, the Nokia 6 (2018) has a metal body and it houses a 3000 mAh battery with the fast charging support. 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.
