Second generation Nokia 6 debuts with Snapdragon 630

Nokia 6 fixes users’ biggest complaints Second generation Nokia 6 debuts with Snapdragon 630

There is no word on whether or not the new Nokia 6 will see a launch outside of the Chinese market just yet. Last year, the original Nokia 6 was announced in January for China, then made available in the USA through Amazon in July. The Nokia 6 2018 or the Nokia 6 second generation, when you look at it in all its totality, seems like an iterative update to last year's Nokia 6: in looks as well as in terms of hardware specs.

There's a circular fingerprint scanner on the back of Nokia 6 (2018). The Nokia 6 still has a headphone jack, but the speakers have-on paper at least-been downgraded from two speakers to one.

The power button and the volume rocker lie on the right, while the dual-SIM hybrid card slot rests on the left: much like the original Nokia 6.

The Nokia 6 (2018) starts at ¥1,499 (~$230) for the 32GB model, and it is on sale in China only for now.

The TENAA listing also mentions that the smartphone will come with Android 7.1.1 Nougat on board out-of-the-box.


Like its predecessor, the Nokia 6 (2018) gets its stamina from a 3000 mAh battery. Instead, it features the same 16MP f/2.0 sensor found on its predecessor, with a 1.0μm pixel size, phase detection autofocus (PDAF) and a dual-tone LED flash module.

The report also claimed that the smartphone would be available for purchase exclusively through Amazon India at present. It features a 5.5-inch full HD (1920 x 1280 pixel) display with Corning Gorilla 3 sheathed on top. On the inside, the Nokia 6 (2018) packs a Snapdragon 630 octa-core system-on-a-chip (SoC), featuring eight Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2.2GHz and an Adreno 508 GPU, coupled with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 64GB of eMMC 5.1 internal storage. Similarly, an 8MP front camera is available with a wide-angle lens.

For starters, there's no home button on the front and Nokia 6 (2018) uses capacitive on-screen keys for navigation. However, Nokia 6 (2018) now supports "Bothie" mode that lets users capture and record from the front and rear camera simultaneously. The processor upgrade alone will make a huge difference in the power and fluidity of the phone, making it more than worth a buy if you're now rocking the 2017 model.

There are options for 32GB or 64GB of storage, which is expandable via microSD up to 128GB.
