We already know that HMD is working on a Nokia 6 successor which will be dubbed as Nokia 6 (2018). Now HMD Global is now rumoured to launch the Nokia 6 (2018) in China this week. A China-based retailer named Suning has leaked a teaser image of the Nokia 6 (2018) on Chinese microblogging website, Weibo.
As per the teaser image, there is number 3 which is designed with older Nokia phones and the text in the image says ‘New Nokia 6,’. This hints at the possible launch of the new Nokia 6 model in 3 days time.
Since the Nokia 6 was announced in China in January and thereafter went on sale a few days later, so the successor might also debut this month and the device might go on sale from January 19 which was earlier rumoured to be the launch date.
The Nokia 6 (2018) was today only found listed on Chinese regulatory site, TENAA, revealing some key specifications. The device will sport a 5.5-inch Full HD display with a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The listing further reveals that Nokia 6 (2018) will be powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor along with Adreno 508 GPU. The phone will be backed by a 4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of internal storage, which can be further expanded up to 128GB via micro SD card.
The Nokia 6 (2018) will be juiced up by a 3000mAh battery and on the connectivity front, it will support 4G VoLTE, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, USB Type-C and dual-SIM support. The device measures 148.8 × 75.8 × 8.15mm and weighs 172 grams.
