A new leak via a Chinese regulatory agency shows that the 2018 refresh of the Nokia 6 may pack the Snapdragon 630, 4 GB of RAM, and a 5.5" 16:9 FHD screen. While these specs are still just a rumor, we may see an announcement about the device from HMD this Friday.
Sam Medley,

Nokia made quite the comeback last year under the new owners of the brand, HMD Global, and it doesn't look like the Nordic company is going to stop anytime soon. We caught word that the Nokia 6 had passed through China's telecom regulatory organization, TENAA, last month. Now, a leak from the same organization might give us a detailed look at the exact specs of the handset, and they're no slouch.

If the leak is to be believed, the 2018 version of the Nokia 6 is expected to have:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC (octa-core)
  • Adreno 508 GPU
  • 4 GB RAM
  • 32 or 64 GB storage
  • microSD support up to 128 GB
  • 16 MP rear camera
  • 8 MP front camera
  • 5.5" FHD display
  • 3,000 mAh battery

The 2018 Nokia 6 might be available in blue, black, or white and will likely ship with Android 7.1 (with a possible upgrade to Android 8.0 Oreo). Most rumor mills are pegging the display at a standard 16:9 aspect ratio, although a few (like are saying it'll be an extra-tall 18:9 screen.

That's a lot of maybes, but we may get confirmation of this information as soon as Friday. HMD has already announced a product launch event for January 19th, but the buzz around mobile phone sites is that the event has either been pushed up or another event will be held on January 5th. Either way, we'll know the future of the mid-range Nokia phone line later this month.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
