HMD Global, the Finnish company that sells Nokia-branded smartphones, is set to formally unveil the second-generation Nokia 6 smartphone later today.

Nokia 6 (2018) has been finally unveiled by HMD Global in China.

This could affect other Android phone owners too; if phones reach a certain age, manufacturers often decide to stop updating them with new software. While the 2017 model had a front-facing fingerprint scanner, the latest version carries it to the back and also loses the capacitive keys in favour of on-display navigation buttons.

The Nokia 6 2018 also packs a 16MP f/2.0 (1 micron pixels) main camera and an 8MP f/2.0 selfie camera (1.12 micron pixels).


The Nokia 6 2018, when you look at it for the first time, doesn't look all that different from the original Nokia 6. The smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 630 processor, Adreno 508 graphics, 4GB RAM, 3000mAh battery alongside 32GB and 64GB expandable internal storage capacities. There are two variants of the phone when it comes to internal storage: 32GB and 64GB. Up front there is an 8 megapixel camera for Selfies and on the back there is a 16 megapixel camera for photos and videos. The major changes in the Nokia 6 (2018) when compared to Nokia 6 is the upgraded processor, slightly modified design, and the addition of USB Type-C port. It should be enough for a good battery life if we consider that the Snapdragon 630 SoC is very efficient. As expected, the device, which is manufactured under the Nokia trademark by HMD Global, has been launched. As of now, there is no news on when the device will come to India.

Well before launch, it was speculated, that the Nokia 6 2018 will ship with an edge-to-edge screen with an unusual aspect ratio of 18:9, in line with rival phones.

Update: New images and info about specs and availability leaked. There's a 2.5D sculpted Corning Gorilla Glass display on top. The handset has Android 8.0 Oreo installed out of the box and a 16 MP single camera on its rear side. It will be offered in two color variants - black with orange accents, and white with red accents.
