Previous leaks

This is not the first time when Nokia 6 (2018) has made it to the rumour mill. Earlier, we have seen the details about the device coming from TENAA. In contrast to today’s leak, TENAA revealed that the device will come in two storage variants – 32GB and 64GB; and both the variants would run Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box. Except for these specs, both TENAA and MyDrivers have dropped identical specifications for the Nokia 6 (2018).

For now, HMD Global has not revealed any information regarding the launch timeline for the Nokia 6 (2018), but given the inflow of leaks, we can expect the device to debut in a few days from now. Some reports have also hinted that HMD Global is hosting an event on January 19 in China, where it could unveil a few Nokia-branded smartphone including the Nokia 6 (2018) alongside other Nokia phones like the Nokia 9, Nokia 8 (2018), Nokia 4, Nokia 7 Plus and the Nokia 1.

In the meantime, if the leaked details of the Nokia 6 (2018) are to be believed, we can expect the device to be priced a little higher than the last year’s version. In comparison to the 2017 version of the Nokia 6 that featured a Snapdragon 430 CPU and 3GB of RAM, the new version seems better, and hence it could ask for a higher pricing.
