There is a 16MP CMOS camera sensor on the rear of the device, while an 8MP sensor adorns the front panel. The fingerprint sensor, however, has been relocated to the back panel unlike front facing one on the 2017 iteration.
The Nokia 6 will again feature the same 3000mAh battery as its predecessor. The detailed TENAA listing indicates the device will come in three colour options – White, Black, and Blue. There will two storage options as well a 32GB and a 64GB version. Also, the device will support up to 128GB expansion via microSD card support in hybrid dual-SIM configuration.
