The Nokia 6 (2017) was the company’s first smartphone that debuted this year. The phone is expected to be updated to a fresh new version later next year. The Nokia 6 (2018) version was spotted on TENAA, the Chinese telecom authority website. The new model will go by the product number TA-1034. The listing doesn’t reveal the exact specifications and price as of yet but still gives us a good idea of what the phone will look like.
Catching up with the current trend, the mobile phone is seen to sport a bezel-less display. The updated Nokia 6 will now feature a full-screen display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. As per rumors, the smartphone will rock a 6-inch display. Owing to the design-change on the front, the home button has been removed and the front of the phone is occupied by the screen, the selfie camera, and Nokia branding.
The back of the phone doesn’t feature the fancy dual-camera setup and instead sticks to the basics with a single sensor with LED flash. Similar to other bezel-less devices, the 2018 version Nokia 8 will also have a fingerprint sensor on the back. The power and volume rockers are located on the right side of the phone. The left side is where the SIM tray is integrated.
Coming to the part that hasn’t been revealed through the listing but has been rumored – the internals. Underneath its hood, the smartphone is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 630 processor. In addition to that, it is likely to pack in 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. It is likely that the phone will also support storage expansion through a microSD card.
Nokia has been releasing phones which run stock Android and thus, the Nokia 6 (2018) is likely to come with Android Oreo out of the box. Also on the software front, the phone should come with the ‘Bothie’ feature that Nokia introduced with the Nokia 8.
The exact specifications regarding the cameras on this phone is still unknown as of now. However, as the phone goes through more certifications, those details will surface over time as well. Stay tuned as we bring you related news in the future.
