Nokia is well on its way to once again becoming one of the most important brands in the smartphone world. The Finnish company, which was once at the top of the smartphone market, has had difficult years. Its feature phone market remained strong, but it was shrinking exponentially over the years, as smartphones occupied the entire market. On the other hand, Nokia took too long to abandon Symbian, its old-fashioned smartphone operating system, and when it did, it took a terrible leap, due to its CEO, to the least popular platform of all: Windows Mobile.
Since then, Nokia sold its mobile division to Microsoft in 2014 so that Microsoft would finish killing its line of smartphones and the operating system. Nokia had to wait two years to re-launch, this time under the command of the company HMD – which is responsible for the manufacture and design of the phones, very similar to how TCL now does with Blackberry. He did it with a series of devices covering all the different ranges, where the Nokia 8 was his high-end phone.
And now, after a return in 2017, it seems that Nokia shows no signs of stopping, as the Nokia 6 (2018) is already being shown in a retailer, Suning.com.
This second generation of the phone brings us a two-tone aluminum covered phone (black and gold / silver and gold). Unlike the original Nokia 6, this time we have software navigation buttons instead of the capacitive ones, plus a fingerprint sensor on the back. As a processor, we have the Snapdragon 630, a 3,000 mAh battery, a rear 16 MP camera with f / 2.0 aperture, and a 5.5 Full HD screen

Not too shabby for a mid-range phone, especially considering the price (216 for 64 GBs not too shabby). According to Suning.com, the retailer that will sell them in China, will be available from January 10 for sale. Maybe Nokia is waiting for CES to make the official announcement?
