  • Nokia 6 second-gen launched. Check out full specifications and top features

Now, almostexactly a year later, the Nokia 6's 2nd-gen variant has been listed on a Chinese retailer's website, complete with specs, images and pricing details.

We're just a few hours away from the launch of Nokia's 6 smartphone and the leaks continue to pour in. It will get Oreo in the days to come, which is what, HMD is promising, but to not have Oreo out-of-the-box in a phone launching in January 2018 is not something that fans and critics expect from the company.

Another noticeable change is the absence of a home button and fingerprint sensor up front. Only this time round, HMD is using bold colour accents to accentuate the phone's chamfers on both the front as well as on the back. With its new design, Nokia 6 (2018) tries to mimmick phones with bezel-less screen, though there's thick bezels on top and bottom of the device.

Coming to Nokia 6 (2018), it features the same 5.5-inch Full HD resolution display that we saw on Nokia 6. The internal storage of the new model is expandable up to 128GB. Its hardware specs did not do full justice to it even though the Nokia 6 was praised by one and all for its outstanding build quality. The original Nokia 6 has been re-designed and its aesthetics have been improved: the only disadvantage, at least for some users, could be the fingerprint reader placed on the back. Additionally, the smartphone is said to borrow the Nokia 8's "Bothie" feature which simultaneously shoot photos from the front and rear cameras. For the camera optics, the Nokia 6 (2018) is having a 16-megapixel rear camera with the F/2.0 aperture, Dual LED dual-tone flash, phase detection autofocus and on the front is an 8-megapixel camera with the same aperture size and an 84-degree wide-angle lens. Weighing 172 grams, the Nokia 6 (2018) has a metal body and it houses a 3000 mAh battery with the fast charging support. The new model is also equipped with USB Type-C connector instead of Micro-USB as per its predecessor.
