Nokia 6 (2018) Dual-SIM Variant Teased In TENAA Certification
Nokia's second generation Nokia 6 appears to have just passed through TENAA according to a new filing. The Finnish brand's comeback lineup this year was met with high praise, but it looks like the company has no signs of stopping, with it reportedly preparing the release of the Nokia 6 (2018). Now, according to a new TENAA certificate, it looks as though the release of the future model may just be around the corner, with the filing pointing towards a dual-SIM variant.
However, at this moment, TENAA hasn't mentioned about any hardware specs and neither are there any leaked images of the device. According to Nokiapoweruser report, what we do know is that this will be a dual-SIM version of the original Nokia 6 and it will also have the design language quite similar to that of the Nokia 7. This would mean that the capacitive touch button would be removed in favor of the on-screen navigation buttons.
HMD Global announced the original Nokia 6 back in January of this year. The Nokia 6 nearly one-year-old, it appears the company is preparing the release of the device's successor which, just like the original, is expected to be announced next month, as reported by Android Headlines.
HMD Global is set to adopt the new 18:9 display ratio trend with the Nokia 6, by including a 5.5-inch panel with minimal bezels. However, because of this, the new Nokia 6 (2018) is expected to move the fingerprint to the rear, just below the camera setup. Inside, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 included in this year's device is rumored to have been updated to Qualcomm's more powerful Snapdragon 630, while this is also said to be paired with 4GB of RAM. Moreover, HMD is also rumored to include 32GB of internal storage that is further expandable via microSD, alongside a new dual-camera setup expected to support the Bothie feature once again.
Nokia 6 (2018) may not be the only device launching in January. In fact, recent reports point towards the Nokia 9 joining the brand's lineup, while the Nokia 8 may also receive a refresh. For now, HMD Global is yet to confirm a release date for Nokia 6 (2018), but the latest rumors point towards Friday, January 19 being the official launch date.
