Nokia 3310 4G featured phone spotted certified on TENAA

HMD is also using its bold colour accent scheme around the power button and the volume rocker, so all in all, the Nokia 6 2018 looks a lot sharper than the original Nokia 6. Instead, the new Nokia device gets a regular 16:9 aspect ratio display with prominent bezels on top and bottom. The phone has received upgrades in the processor and RAM department, while the rest of its specs are more or less similar to its predecessor. The Nokia 6 (2018) will only become available with 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of internal storage. The smartphone is priced starting at Yuan 1,499 (Rs 14,637 approx) for 32GB storage model and Yuan 1,699 (Rs 16,590 approx) for 64GB storage version. There are other smartphones that are more affordable, however, the Nokia 6 (2018) might prove to be worth every cent. Bummer. The device will also run on Android Nougat 7.1 out of the box but will, of course, receive an Oreo update. One that can be charged up by means of a USB Type-C port.

The Snapdragon 630 is notably successor to the tried and tested Snapdragon 625, and we can expect only good things from it, because phones like the Moto X4 (that are based on Snapdragon 630) haven't disappointed. The model boasts of a 3000mAh battery which supports fast charging. Nokia 6 (2018) will be released in two colors: black with gold inserts and white with red inserts. 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. The smartphone is set to go on sale in China on January 10 with pre-orders going live now. The official launch of the phone isn't that far now and we should all these details pretty soon.

Google to setup its own experience stores in India
This retail expansion comes as more than a dozen pop-up stores opened in recent months throughout the country proved successful. The stores could offer Google Home smart speakers, Chromecast devices, Pixel laptops, Daydream View VR headsets, and more.

The design has also been tweaked, with the fingerprint scanner moving to the back, navigation buttons being moved on-screen and the dimensions changing, as the Nokia 6 (2018) comes in at 148.8 x 75.8 x 8.25mm (or 8.6mm where the camera juts out).
