A report surfaced recently claiming that Nokia is getting ready to introduce a more powerful Nokia 6 handset early next year, while the device also got certified by TENAA quite recently. Having said that, it seems like the phone will ship with a more powerful SoC than its predecessor, the Snapdragon 630, and a YouTube channel called ‘Concept Creator’ has just released its concept design of this upcoming smartphone. It is actually possible that Nokia won’t change the design of the Nokia 6 (2018) all that much, if at all, but it’s always interesting to see new designs, so let’s check out this concept, shall we.
The back side of the device is actually quite similar to the back of the original Nokia 6, though the fingerprint scanner is now located on the back side, instead of the front. The company’s logo is still there, as is a single rear-facing camera, and an LED flash. The phone is still made out of metal, a SIM card tray is placed on the left, while the phone’s physical keys can be found on the right. The company’s logo is now present above the display as well, in the upper-right corner of the phone’s front side, and the device’s bezels are considerably thinner here, compared to the original Nokia 6, of course. The display also sports rounded corners, while a 3.5mm headphone jack is placed at the top of the phone. A Type-C USB port lies at the bottom of the device, where you’ll also find the phone’s loudspeaker. The phone’s frame sports chamfered edges, and the antenna bands are nicely tucked away and compliment this design nicely.
That is more or less it as far as this design is concerned, though it’s quite possible that the upcoming Nokia 6 (2018) will keep the design of its predecessor. The Nokia 6 (2018) is rumored to launch in early 2018 (January, actually), and aside from sporting the Snapdragon 630 SoC, it will ship with a 5.5-inch display, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. If you’d like to check out the concept design that we’ve talked about in this article, the video has been embedded down below.
