HMD Global alias Nokia is getting ready to launch the next generation Android-powered Nokia smartphones and here is the first smartphone the Nokia 6 (2018) from the list, which is expected to replace the Nokia 6, which really did well in the Indian market. It seems that the new Nokia 6 may ditch the hardware touch buttons which was seen on the original Nokia 6, instead may come with on-screen keys. A smartphone with TA-1054 model number with dual SIM was revealed in the screenshot.
We finally figured out that the TA-1054 that passed the 3C certification in China is in fact the NOKIA 6 (2018) and not the long-rumored NOKIA 9. But Nokia shouldn't blindly follow the trends, as we have already seen Google doesn't and the Pixel 2 XL has the highest rated smartphone camera ever. The rear-faced fingerprint scanner means the smartphone is likely to have narrow bezels and a taller display just like the recently launched smartphone. With a full-screen design, it is clear that there will be a fingerprint sensor at the rear of the smartphone.
Going by the earlier leaks, the Nokia 6 (2018) will boast a similar design language as the Nokia 7. These details haven't been confirmed yet. It is expected to be launched on January 19 alongside the Nokia 9 and the 2018 edition of this year's flagship Nokia 8. HMD Global will most probably launch the smartphone during the MWC 2018 in late February with availability around April. A gap of exactly a year between the two phones makes the upcoming launch look likely, as the majority of manufacturers have been sticking to yearly releases when it comes to updating their product families.
The Operating system on the device is expected to remain at a stock Android operating system with Android Oreo out of the box.
The original Nokia 6 has a 5.5-inch display and is powered by 1.4GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor.
