The new Nokia 6 smartphone, the 2018 edition, is on its way and the most recent information, offered by HMD Global itself, suggests that it’s going to be unveiled tomorrow.

The company sent invites for an event on January 5th, in China, an the “new Nokia 6” is mentioned in the invites. So there little room to make any other assumptions.

But, in the meantime a set of images, have already leaked on the web confirming, again, the design of the second generation of Nokia 6. The phone got TENAA certification and from there we found that there’s not going to be an 18:9 display on Nokia 6 (2018), but a classic 16:9 screen.

Also, the can see that there’s no Home button at the front and that the fingerprint reader is on the back under the camera. The phone looks nice. A bit more stylish than last year’s model, but the changes aren’t really impressive.

According to TENAA listings, the phone sports a 5.5-inch Full HD (1920x1080px) display, which means it retains its 16:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood there’s a Snapdragon 630 chipset, though we expected the improved Snapdragon 660 chipset. There’s also 4GB of RAM and two storage options: 32GB and 64GB. There’s also a slot for up to 128GB microSD cards.

Nokia 6 (2018) features a 16MP rear mounted camera, while at the front there an 8MP selfie snapper. The phone was registered at TENAA with Android 7.1.1 Nougat, so we can only hope that it’ll be shipped ready for Android 8.0 Oreo. The new phone will be powered by a 3,000mAh.
