While this will be the first flagship for HMD Global of the year, we doubt this will be the only one, as it is too soon to expect the Snapdragon 845 to be released in a smartphone this soon in the year. Apparently, while most of us were nursing Christmas hangovers, a report surfaced online suggesting that the Finnish company is working on a phone dubbed Nokia 1, which, obviously, should come behind the Nokia 2 in the pecking order. The teaser put up on Weibo shows Nokia phones making a numeric three to point towards the new announcement. The smartphone was recently spotted on TENAA revealing few details of the upcoming smartphone.
"Based on its TENAA certification photos, the Nokia 6 will still retain a similar 5.5" Full HD display and an aluminium unibody design. The new model is also expected to get a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
On the camera front, the smartphone is expected to come with a 16-megapixel CMOS camera sensor on the back, and an 8-megapixel camera sensor on the front. The phone will be backed by a 4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of internal storage, which can be further expanded up to 128GB via micro SD card. Additionally, the smartphone is said to sport the "Bothie" feature.
The original Nokia 6
Nearly a year after HMD Global unveiled the Nokia 6, the 2018 model will be revealed this month.
The Nokia 6 (2018) will be juiced up by a 3000mAh battery and on the connectivity front, it will support 4G VoLTE, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, USB Type-C and dual-SIM support. A Russian tipster Eldar Murtazin has revealed that the Finnish company will launch the new Nokia 1 smartphone with Google's Android Oreo (Go edition) next year in March.
