HMD Global has officially announced an upgraded version of the Nokia 6 smartphone. Just recently, leaked images of the device had hit the internet, and now it’s here.
The new Nokia 6, simply called the Nokia 6 2nd Gen, looks identical to the 2017 variant in design, except for the fingerprint sensor being moved to the back. However, the phone does get some new hardware on the inside. Nokia has included the octa-core Snapdragon 630 in this variant, and it’s available with 4GB of RAM.
You can also choose between 32 and 64GB of internal storage. The new variant also gets OZO Audio recording that allows for 3D audio capture and playback. Finally, in the camera department, users can now enjoy the Bothie feature. The phone still comes with Android 7.1.1 Nougat but will receive an update to Oreo.
Unfortunately, the Nokia 6 2nd Gen is a China-only exclusive, at least for now. The 32GB variant starts at about $230, whereas the 64GB model is $245. You can prebook the phone in China right now from Nokia’s official website, but deliveries start on January 10.
