If that's the case, we're certainly disappointed to see the refreshed Nokia 6 powered by Android 7.1.1 Nougat out the box, especially when the original version is so close to an official Oreo update. The "Dual-Sight" technology borrowed from the flagship Nokia 8, which allows the user to capture images from the rear and front camera sensors at the same time, which Nokia also terms as the "Bothie" feature.

Nokia 3310 4G is further reported to have 2.4-inch TFT display (Non-touch) with the resolutions of 240×240. The original Nokia 6 was definitely not the company's best and most powerful smartphone, but it was a solid mid-range handset. That's still not going to change anytime soon as according to a TENAA listing, HMD Global has adopted a 16:9 display again, even for the Nokia 6 (2018). Of course, this means that the fingerprint reader moved to the back. The second-generation Nokia 6 will also be available with a choice of 32 or 64 GB internal storage, for respectively CNY 1,499 or CNY 1,699. The memory will be expandable with a micro SD up to 128 GB. Many would, in fact, even say that the new Nokia 6 is what last year's Nokia 6 should have been in the first place. The Nokia 6 2018, on paper, supports Bluetooth 5.0 and fast charging (not sure whether it's Quick Charge 4 though) and comes with LPDDR4 RAM. It should be enough for a good battery life if we consider that the Snapdragon 630 SoC is very efficient. The smartphone was debuted in India following its formal announcement with a price tag of Rs. 6,999 and is also available in the US.

The color options included here are Black and Silver, and for the 32GB and 64GB variants, the price set is 1499 yuan and 1699 yuan respectively.

Samsung will reportedly unveil its new Galaxy S9 flagship smartphone in February
At the time, the company said that the first 2000 customers to pre-order the phone will get a free Samsung Level Box Slim. The further expected features of Samsung Galaxy S9 is Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor while RAM will be 6GB.

Technically, the 5.5-inch Nokia 6 (2018) hasn't been officially announced by exclusive brand licensee HMD yet, which isn't stopping Chinese retail giant Suning from accepting pre-registrations ahead of an actual January 10 launch.

Update: New images and info about specs and availability leaked.
