HMD Global has unveiled its first smartphone for the year of 2018. After its last year’s launch of Nokia 6, the company has now brought out a rebranded variant of the smartphone as the Nokia 6 (2018). The launch comes after much speculations about the device were doing the rounds on the internet. For now, the new Nokia 6 has debuted in China and no further details about its global release have emerged. The Nokia 6 (2018) is set to go on sale on January 10 with a starting price of CNY 1,499 (~Rs 14,600) for the 32GB variant, while the 64GB variant will be available for purchase at CNY 1,699 (~Rs 16,600). The Nokia 6 (2018) will be available in two colour options - Black and Silver.

Nokia 6 (2018) Specifications

At the front, there is an 8-megapixel sensor with a similar aperture and an 84-deree wide-angle lens. Nokia 6 (2018) will also feature HMD Global’s proprietary ‘Bothie effect’ which was first featured in the Nokia 8, powered by the company’s Dual-Sight technology.

What's Different?

HMD Global has made a few changes in the new variant of Nokia 6. The fingerprint sensor has been shifted to the back of the smartphone in the new variant. In addition to this, the new variant also skips out on the capacitive keys, that were present on the older model. In the new Nokia 6 (2018), the company now chose to go with on-screen navigation in an attempt to get closer to stock Android UI. Even after decongesting the bottom bezel, the company still chose to go for a 16:9 aspect ratio instead of an 18:9 one. Nokia has also improved upon the built of the smartphone by now choosing a metal unibody made by a 6000 series aluminium.

The smartphone is already up for pre-orders on Chinese website Suning.
