However, just a day ahead of its official unveiling, a bunch of images of the purported Nokia 6 (2018) have popped up online that show the handset in more detail.

Russian tipster Eldar Murtazin in a tweet that the Nokia 1 will be a part of Google's Android Oreo (Go edition) programme.

Another noticeable change is the absence of a home button and fingerprint sensor up front.

Earlier, some leaks suggested that the Nokia 6 2018 will run Android 8.0 out of the box, while now the latest leak suggests that the phone will run Android 7.1 Nougat. It uses hardware capacitive button on the front for on-screen navigation. The new Nokia 6 is shorter than the old one while having the same screen (in terms of size and aspect ratio).

Moving the fingerprint scanner to the back likely means that the bottom bezel of the new phone is also slightly smaller, but the metal-heavy design is otherwise similar, and so are the rest of the specs.

The biggest change that HMD Global has implemented to the second-generation Nokia 6 is its processor. Additionally, the smartphone is said to borrow the Nokia 8's "Bothie" feature which simultaneously shoot photos from the front and rear cameras. That's with 32GB internal storage space only, while 64 gigs will set you back 1,699 yuan, or $260. On the hardware side, it seems that there will be an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630, which is the successor of the Snapdragon 625 and 626 chips and includes an Adreno 508 GPU. It supports expandable storage up to 128GB via a microSD card slot. The upcoming device from HMD Global's stable was recently leaked in a TENAA certification listing and more recently by an online retailer who gave out some of the phone's important specs along with its possible launch date. The only other minor changes to the Nokia 6 (2018) are its use of USB Type-C for charging and an upgrade to Bluetooth 5 from Bluetooth 4.1.
