The revamped 2018 version of the Nokia 6, uninterestingly dubbed the Nokia 6 (2018) has been doing the rounds for quite some time now.

This could affect other Android phone owners too; if phones reach a certain age, manufacturers often decide to stop updating them with new software. The back camera has dual-tone LED flash and PDAF lens with f/2.0 aperture and the front camera has f/2.0 aperture and 84-degree wide-angle lens.

Not at all like the first Nokia 6 demonstrate that was propelled back in January a year ago with a forward looking unique finger impression scanner, the Nokia 6 (2018) highlights a unique mark scanner on the back. Nokia 6 has metal unibody design with matte finish and metallic edge. The device boots up to Android 7.1.1 Nougat and sports a 5.2-inch Full-HD IPS display with 2.5D curved Gorilla Glass atop. The smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 630 processor, Adreno 508 graphics, 4GB RAM, 3000mAh battery alongside 32GB and 64GB expandable internal storage capacities. The base 4 GB RAM and 32 GB storage configuration goes for 1,499 RMB, roughly $230, while 64 GB storage nets your 1,699 RMB, around $260. Even the 8-megapixel selfie camera on the front has the same aperture. The 4G phone could also support bands like Band 38, Band 39, Band 40, and Band 41.

The 2018 model upgrades the processor from a Snapdragon 430 to a Snapdragon 630, which is quite the leap. Nokia 1 will be a low budget phone around the price range of Rs.6,670. Chinese retailer Suning has posted images and spec details of the device, spilling just about everything there is to know about it before HMD or Nokia actually announces it. The Nokia 6 second gen will officially launch January 10. But we're pretty sure HMD is giving us more color options for the global release.

One angry commenter said: "There's a new vulnerability and all Google says is I should apply an update that will never be available because my phone is more than a year old".

Another noticeable change is the absence of a home button and fingerprint sensor up front. There are two colour variants for each - Black and Silver.
