Nokia 6 (2018) is official and it's a speedy upgrade

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

HMD Global has unveiled Nokia 6 (2018) in China, which is the successor to company's mid-budget Nokia 6 smartphone, launched in January 2017.

The fingerprint scanner in Nokia 6 is embedded into the home button on the front.

The Nokia 8 (2018) will be fuelled by a 3000mAh battery and could launch with Android Nougat out-of-the-box.

The newly leaked images also seem to confirm one important spec that we already know about the device, that the Nokia 6 (2018) will feature a 5.5-inch Full HD display with 16:9 aspect ratio. With its new design, Nokia 6 (2018) tries to mimmick phones with bezel-less screen, though there's thick bezels on top and bottom of the device. Nokia 6 (2018) ditches the hardware capacitive button on the front and sticks with a metal unibody build. In order to accomplish this, HMD Global needed to move the fingerprint sensor to the back panel of the handset. Similarly, an 8MP front camera is available with a wide-angle lens.

The biggest change that HMD Global has implemented to the second-generation Nokia 6 is its processor.

Inside, the phone comes with the faster Qualcomm Snapdragon 630, a 2.2 GHz octa-core processor, and 4 GB RAM.

The Nokia 6 2018 has been launched in China in two variants - one with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage for CNY 1499 (roughly Rs 14,600) and one with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage for CNY 1699 (roughly Rs 16,600). These are both expandable up to 128 GB via microSD. The new model is also equipped with USB Type-C connector instead of Micro-USB as per its predecessor. The "Dual-Sight" technology borrowed from the flagship Nokia 8, which allows the user to capture images from the rear and front camera sensors at the same time, which Nokia also terms as the "Bothie" feature.

Both phones have a 5.5-inch 1080 x 1920 screen, a 3,000mAh battery, a 16MP rear camera, an 8MP front-facing one, 32GB or 64GB of storage, a microSD card slot and now run Android Nougat.
