HMD Global’s Nokia 6 2018 Leaks Ahead of Launch

HMD Global’s Nokia 6 2018 Leaks Ahead of Launch

When HMD Global began selling Android smartphones with Nokia branding, it started with safe bets, and the strategy paid off — the 2017 Nokia 6 received a lot of attention for high-end specs and affordable price tag. And this year, it seems that HMD Global’s iterating on the work it started.

On Thursday, a Chinese retailer prematurely leaked the 2018 version of the Nokia 6.

We’ve been hearing about a 2018 variant of the Nokia 6 for a couple of months now, and the product listing fills in the remaining gaps. The Nokia 6 2018 weighs in at 172 grams, and comes equipped with an aluminum unibody, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a 5.5-inch 1080p display. Under the hood, it packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 system-on-chip paired with 4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of storage (plus a microSD card slot), depending on the model.

The Nokia 6 2018’s other highlights include a 16MP camera sensor on the back with a f/2.0 aperture, phase detection autofocus, and dual LED flash, and an 8MP front-facing shooter, which support Nokia’s signature Bothie and OZO Audio features. The phone has a USB Type-C charging port and a 3.5mm headphone port as well, and a 3,000mAh battery.

In terms of software, the Nokia 6 2018 ships with Android 7.1.1 Nougat. An Oreo update’s said to be coming later.

The Nokia 6 2018 will be made available in two different color options — black and white — when it ships later this month in China, and will be priced at €191 (about $230) for the 32GB version and €216 (about $260) for 64GB model. Pre-orders are expected to start January 10.
