One year after the release of its predecessor, the rumored 2018 version of the Nokia 6 finally appeared in the Chinese Nokia website last week, making it an official part of HMD Global’s smartphone line up, and the debut handset for the new year.
Diving into the translation of the website, the new phone is called the “second generation Nokia 6” and is currently priced at ¥1,499 (around PHP11,500). Available in Black and Silvery White variants, it features the same stylish body design, using 6000-series aluminum as the main material. Just like its older version, the second generation Nokia 6 has a 5.5-in, 1080p IPS LCD display, 16MP rear camera, 8MP front camera, fingerprint sensor, and will run on Android Nougat. Yes, still Nougat and not Oreo.
So, what’s new with the second generation Nokia 6? As was written in our previous article, the new Nokia handset will run on a more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 octa-core processor, 4GB RAM, option of 32GB or 64GB internal storage, and will also feature the Dual Sight Camera technology AKA Bothie (a feature only offered with Nokia 8 so far). HMD Global sure knows how to deliver consumers’ request, as these upgrades are among the most requested in various forums, group chats, and pages.
Just like the Nokia 7, the second generation Nokia 6 is available for Chinese smartphone users only and there’s no news yet as to whether these handsets will be made available in the international market. We’ll keep you posted once we gather more information, so keep reading our blog!
