We previously heard a rumor that HMD Global would be releasing an updated Nokia 6 smartphone next year.

We finally figured out that the TA-1054 that passed the 3C certification in China is in fact the NOKIA 6 (2018) and not the long-rumored NOKIA 9. In terms of specifications, the flagship device is expected to sport a 5.5-inch Quad HD display with 18:9 aspect ratio, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset SoC, 6GB RAM, and IP67 water and dust resistance. A Nokia event at January 19th is expected to star the Nokia 9, but it's looking increasingly likely that we'll see an appearance from the Nokia 6 and Nokia 8 as well.

While details are unavailable yet, rumours suggest it will come with latest Snapdragon 600 series specifically the previous rumour pointed out at the usage of Snapdragon 660 SoC. Now six months later, a new Nokia 6 model has been spotted on TENAA revealing few details of the upcoming smartphone. The phone comes with a 5.5-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels at a PPI of 403 pixels per inch. 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.

Earlier there was a confusion regarding the new leaks in China that TA-1054 is not about Nokia 9, It is for Nokia 6 2018. At that time, we will find out everything there is to know about the smartphone, including features, prices, and availability. Likewise, the new Nokia 6 may also fall under the budget phone category - however, there are no official word on the same as of yet. 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 feature allows users to use both the front and rear cameras simultaneously. Nokia 6 runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat and is backed by a 3000mAh non removable battery.
