For instance, many Android phones are now affected by the Meltdown and Spectre bugs, but new Nokia 6 owners will likely have to wait to receive the full fix.

HMD Global has unveiled Nokia 6 (2018) in China, which is the successor to company's mid-budget Nokia 6 smartphone, launched in January 2017.

The great changes of the Nokia 6 (2018) come from the inside.

Another noticeable change is the absence of a home button and fingerprint sensor up front. The experiments involved a smartphone with 4 GB of RAM and OS Android 8 already out of the box, but will also release a version with 6 GB of RAM. That's not the case though as HMD is shipping the Nokia 6 2018 with the same 5.5-inch 1080p display with a traditional 16:9 aspect ratio as the original Nokia 6. Nokia 6 (2018) ditches the hardware capacitive button on the front and sticks with a metal unibody build. For the camera optics, the Nokia 6 (2018) is having a 16-megapixel rear camera with the F/2.0 aperture, Dual LED dual-tone flash, phase detection autofocus and on the front is an 8-megapixel camera with the same aperture size and an 84-degree wide-angle lens. There's a circular fingerprint scanner on the back of the device.

The biggest change that HMD Global has implemented to the second-generation Nokia 6 is its processor. The new Nokia 6, as a result, comes with a beefier 2.2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor clubbed with 4GB of RAM and up to 64GB of internal storage. The memory will be expandable with a micro SD up to 128 GB. A MicroSD card slot will allow the storage expansion by another 128GB.

There is 4G VoLTE support and the other connectivity options include WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 5, GPS, and USB Type-C that is another change from the predecessor. According to the leak, the phone has a 5.5-inch display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection, and its body is made of aluminum 6000 series.
