There is no confirmation but we're nearly certain a new Nokia 6 will be introduced in the Chinese market. Chinese retailer Suning has also teased a Nokia phone launch in three days time, Friday 5 January, which could well be for the Nokia 6. While this will be the first flagship for HMD Global of the year, we doubt this will be the only one, as it is too soon to expect the Snapdragon 845 to be released in a smartphone this soon in the year. The company is also prepping to unveil the Nokia 3310 4G variant that has been spotted on the certification websites such as FCC, Bluetooth SIG and TENAA revealing the possible specifications.

Among those, Nokia 6 (2018) is expected to make its debut in China in February. And based on the updated listing on TENNA, the country's FCC equivalent, the all-new Nokia 6 is expected to sport a 5.5-inch Full HD (16:9) display, and a metal bodied design. The listing further reveals that Nokia 6 (2018) will be powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor along with Adreno 508 GPU. The smartphone is also likely to come with 32GB and 64GB of internal storage. Battery energy is quite good at 3000mAh and the main camera is featuring a 16MP, while the front uses an 8MP selfie sensor. A Russian tipster Eldar Murtazin has revealed that the Finnish company will launch the new Nokia 1 smartphone with Google's Android Oreo (Go edition) next year in March.
