We had already anticipated a couple of days ago that Nokia had in mind to launch at least 6 new devices throughout the year, among which the first to appear would be the Nokia 6 2018 and the Nokia 9 and although the Nokia 6 2018 is scheduled to be presented tomorrow in China, have already filtered all its specifications and price that according to the source is exactly the same data we will know tomorrow in the event of the Finnish firm.
It was almost a year ago, when Nokia introduced its first smartphone with Android in China, specifically on January 7 and months later began to market in other markets (including Mexico), so it is likely that exactly the same with the model of this year.

As you can see, the changes compared to the previous year’s version are few but important, because now we are facing a mid-range high that comes to compete against the standard of Motorola, Xiaomi and Huawei of this range, and that from this moment becomes in one of the most interesting options on the market due to its quality / price ratio.
We found improvements in hardware such as the processor and RAM, now we bet on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630, 4GB of RAM and 32 or 64GB versions of internal storage that we can increase with microSD memories of up to 128GB.
Regarding the battery we will have fast charging technology and a capacity of 3,000mAh together with USB charging port type C.
The camera is another feature that comes with improvements over its predecessor, as we will have a 16MP rear sensor and an 8MP front camera. Both have an aperture f / 2.0 and include Nokia technology known as ‘Bothies‘, so we can use both cameras at the same time to make much more fun pictures.
Regarding its price and availability the Nokia 6 2018 will begin to be marketed in China for $ 1499 yuan for the 32GB version and for $ 1699 yuan for the 64GB, which means that the approximate price to pay for these devices will be $ 4,800 and $ 5,100 MXN, a very attractive price for the specifications it has.
We will be attentive to the presentation tomorrow to find out if the firm mentions any information about its marketing plans with this model, but it is highly probable that we will see it in Mexico sometime in 2018.
