HMD Global is expected to launch the revamped version of the Nokia 6 in China today. The device is said to start selling this coming January 10, Wednesday in China. The side profile is similar to what we have seen in the previous generation model launched past year and is robust as well. The body is made out of the same 6000 series aluminum as the Nokia 6 (2017), while the photography department gets an identical 16MP rear/8MP front combo. According to the retailer, the base variant with 32GB storage will be sold at RMB 1,499 (approximately Rs 14,700), whereas the 64GB storage variant will be sold for RMB 1,699 (approximately Rs 16,600).

The phone is running Android 7.1.1 Nougat for now and it is upgradeable to Android 8.0 Oreo, with the stock Android OS. The handset is now official and we have all the details on this second generation Android smartphone from Nokia.
In addition, the Nokia 6 (2018) packs a 3000mAh battery that backings quick charging innovation. Although Nokia came back past year, it was only for China, as it launched the Nokia 6 in our neighbouring country.
Though design language largely remains the same as Nokia 6, HMD Global has brought in a few aesthetic changes to Nokia 6 (2018). The body of Nokia 6 (2018) has a metal unibody and it is made of nearly 6000 series aluminum. It sports a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display with a Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) and a 2.5D curved glass covering. The new Nokia 6 will come with two storage options 32GB and 64GB, while a microSD card supports expansion up to 128GB.
Elsewhere, the Nokia 6 2018 comes with USB Type-C port for charging and data syncing unlike the original that came with a standard Micro USB 2.0 port.
On the camera front, the smartphone flaunts a 16-megapixel camera with PDAF, 1.0um sensor, f/2.0 aperture, and dual-tone LED flash. The phone has Dual-Sight technology with which users can take simultaneous snaps from front and rear camera, also called Bothie.
