HMD Global to reveal the first Nokia phone on 5 January 2018

Nokia 6 visits Geekbench with Android 8.0 Oreo ahead of January

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. Although the internet is abuzz with 'Nokia 6 (2018)' these days, the camera app of Nokia 5 seems to have given us some leads on other new Nokia-branded smartphone that have never been heard before. The company is also prepping to unveil the Nokia 3310 4G variant that has been spotted on the certification websites such as FCC, Bluetooth SIG and TENAA revealing the possible specifications. According to rumors and speculations, the company wants to launch major Nokia smartphones in early 2018. It will feature 5.5-inch Full View Display with 18:9 ratio HD+ resolution.

The images of the Nokia 6 (2018) also show that the fingerprint sensor, which was present in the home button of the front panel in the 2017 series model, has been shifted to the back, just below the primary camera on top centre. The listing further reveals that Nokia 6 (2018) will be powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor along with Adreno 508 GPU. Additionally, the smartphone is said to sport the "Bothie" feature. It would have at least 32GB of onboard storage and it is expected to retain the same 3,000mAh capacity battery.

Now, it looks like HMD will announce the Nokia 6 (2018) this week as a China-based online retailer Suning has taken to Weibo to tease the launch of the smartphone via NokiaMob. While the details regarding these smartphones are scarce, the Nokia 1 is expected to be an Android Go (Oreo) smartphone that could be launched in March.
