The new Nokia 6 (2018) has made its debut in China for a price starting at CNY 1499 (around Rs 14,600). As a result the second gen Nokia 6 measures 148.8 x 75.8 x 8.15mm (8.6mm thick at the camera), which more than 5mm shorter than the original one. It comes with a more capable chipset and a reduced footprint, but otherwise shares most of its hardware with the original Nokia 6. But now, the Nokia 6 (2018) has the fingerprint scanner on the rear side. The old Nokia 6 had capacitive buttons painted onto the front of the device, along with a center-mounted front fingerprint reader. The device is backed by a 3000mAh battery and can support fast charging tech, which is claimed to deliver up to 50% charge in 30 minutes.

On the photography front, it inherits the 16 MP f/2.0 lens at the back and an 8-megapixel f/2.2 selfie shooter from its predecessor.

Android 7.1.1 Nougat runs the Nokia 6 (2018). It sports a circular shaped fingerprint scanner that sits below the rear camera. The phone is powered by a 3000 mAh non-removable battery.

The display is once again 5.5-inches with a resolution of 1920 x 1080, and although it's not directly mentioned, our guess is that Nokia will once again use an LED panel rather than AMOLED.

Perhaps the most notable of the upgrades is the processor, with the Nokia 6 2018 featuring a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor - a massive upgrade from the Snapdragon 430 included in last year's device.

The design has also been tweaked, with the fingerprint scanner moving to the back, navigation buttons being moved on-screen. The smartphone will be available to the customers in India sometime soon. Both variants have 4GB RAM. The "Dual-Sight" technology borrowed from the flagship Nokia 8, which allows the user to capture images from the rear and front camera sensors at the same time, which Nokia also terms as the "Bothie" feature.

But the handset has already been revealed on Nokia's official website for the China region, giving fans an early look at what to expect from the phone.

A microSD card slot lets you extend the available storage, which is 32GB or 64GB depending on the version you purchase.
