The Nokia 6 (2018) hits TENAA
The first set of rumors for Nokia's next-gen mid-range device surfaced a few days ago, with sources claiming that it would be powered by the premium Snapdragon 660. The same device has made the trip over to TENAA, China's certification agency, which is usually an indication that launch is imminent.
Usually, a TENAA appearance is followed by an announcement within two months or thereabouts. The first-gen Nokia 6 was launched at MWC during the last week of February this year, so we wouldn't be surprised to see its successor get the same treatment next year.
The TENAA listing doesn't actually have specifications listed, as those usually come later—later this week or next, probably. It does show renders of the device, which gives us a rough idea of what to expect. From the images, the Nokia 6 (2018) seems to take a form that's quite similar to that of the Nokia 7. Lacking, however, is the presence of dual rear cameras, which is a letdown, since that has become a staple feature over the past year. Bezels are minimal, though, and there's a chance that the Nokia 6 (2018) is to be the first "bezel-less" 18:9 display from HMD.
