Nokia 6 (2018) Passes Through TENAA Certification, Could Launch Soon

A smartphone model, TA-1054, which is touted to be the Nokia 6 (2018), recently passed TENAA certification in China. Nokia 6 was launched earlier this year in India and comes at a starting price of Rs 14,999.

Nokia has an event lined up for January 19, and it's suspected it may launch the Nokia 9, as well as one or more Nokia 2018 re-boots - the Nokia 8 (2018) has been tipped for this previously. A smartphone with TA-1054 model number with dual SIM was revealed in the screenshot. The fingerprint sensor will make its way to the rear of the device. So, the phone is expected to come with a 5.5-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio. It will probably come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC on board and will include 4GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage. The first-gen Nokia 6 was launched at MWC during the last week of February this year, so we wouldn't be surprised to see its successor get the same treatment next year. We don't have access to the detailed specifications and images of the smartphone.

The Nokia 6 specifications listed in the TENAA documentation shows an 18:9 display as well, with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. With that said, I really hope this new NOKIA 6 to debut with a brand new camera app because the camera hardware on these NOKIA phones are kind of wasted. It does looks like a NOKIA 5, 6 and 7 mashed up together. Coming to the pricing, the smartphone will retail anywhere between $250 to $300 and expected to announce on CES in January 2018.

TENAA has now updated the listing along with images of the much-awaited mid-range smartphone. The Nokia 9 is expected to look similar to the Nokia 8 with a large display and waterproofing, but there's also apparently an updated Nokia 8 reboot on the way as well.

The original Nokia 6 has a 5.5-inch display and is powered by 1.4GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor. Nokia 7 is one of my favourite smartphones in terms of design.
