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

HMD Global introduced the Nokia 7 as a China-exclusive back in October, but it looks like the smartphone will be making outside this country very soon. The display has a 16:9 aspect ratio.

The big change in Nokia 6 (2018) is the processor. Now, almostexactly a year later, the Nokia 6's 2nd-gen variant has been listed on a Chinese retailer's website, complete with specs, images and pricing details. It will get Oreo in the days to come, which is what, HMD is promising, but to not have Oreo out-of-the-box in a phone launching in January 2018 is not something that fans and critics expect from the company. The cameras and the battery also remained the same. The smartphone could debut at CES 2018, which is just around the corner. New Nokia 6 (2018) will keep the screen frame, which will also receive a Full HD resolution and a diagonal of 5.5 inches, although this format is in 2018 is no longer relevant. The phones devices use a micro-USB port for charging. The smartphone is priced starting at Yuan 1,499 (Rs 14,637 approx) for 32GB storage model and Yuan 1,699 (Rs 16,590 approx) for 64GB storage version. The new version moves the fingerprint sensor to the back of the phone, giving the device a higher screen-to-body ratio. Nokia 6 (2018) sports 4GB RAM with 32GB/64GB storage options, expandable up to 128GB via a microSD card slot. Instead of having a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400-series chip, the company has opted for Snapdragon 630 alongside 4GB LPDDR4 RAM. However, Nokia 6 (2018) now supports "Bothie" mode that lets users capture and record from the front and rear camera simultaneously.

The Nokia 6 (2018) will further sport a 16-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel front shooter, and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.

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.
