However, just a day ahead of its official unveiling, a bunch of images of the purported Nokia 6 (2018) have popped up online that show the handset in more detail. It is not known if the phone will be released outside of China anytime soon but the new second-generation Nokia 6 will be launched in China on 10 January with a price tag of CNY 1499 (about RM 925) for the 32GB model while the 64GB edition will costs slightly higher at CNY 1699 (about RM 1,048).

Nokia 8 (2018) doesn't feature an edge-to-edge display, which is quite common on mid-budget and flagship smartphones these days.

The fingerprint scanner in Nokia 6 is embedded into the home button on the front. The Nokia 6 2018 runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat and will be upgraded to Android 8.0 Oreo in near future.

For starters, there's no home button on the front and Nokia 6 (2018) uses capacitive on-screen keys for navigation. 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. That's not the case though as HMD is shipping the Nokia 6 2018 with the same 5.5-inch 1080p display with a traditional 16:9 aspect ratio as the original Nokia 6.

Head coach Chuck Pagano was sacked Sunday as the Indianapolis Colts wrapped up the 2017 season with few bright spots. Irsay fired general manager Ryan Grigson previous year , but kept Pagano at the time.

Moving the fingerprint scanner to the back likely means that the bottom bezel of the new phone is also slightly smaller, but the metal-heavy design is otherwise similar, and so are the rest of the specs. Similarly, an 8MP front camera is available with a wide-angle lens.

The listings on TENNA suggest that the device might feature 1.5GHz dual-core chip paired with 256MB RAM and 512MB internal storage.

Moreover, the device will have a 4 GB of RAM and it will reportedly come in two native storage configurations: 32 GB or 64 GB. It will boast a 3,000 mAh battery to keep things up and running.

Elsewhere, the Nokia 6 2018 comes with USB Type-C port for charging and data syncing unlike the original that came with a standard Micro USB 2.0 port.
