How is it interesting?
Nokia 6 (2018) will significantly add to the performance compared to the original model. According to information from Geekbench, the smartphone uses the eight-core Snapdragon 630 processor. The amount of RAM is 4 GB, there are versions with a drive for 32 GB and 64 GB. With the display, everything is not so clear. On the one hand, the database of the Chinese TENAA regulator refers to a 5.5-inch Full HD-panel with the usual 16: 9 aspect ratio, but the photo shows an option with an extended screen. Perhaps this is only a visual impression due to the thinner frames from above and below. In any case, the fingerprint scanner has moved to the back of the metal casing.
