Nokia already has as many as six smartphones to its name, all of which came out previous year. The budget handset is rumoured to be the company's first ever smartphone to fall under Google's Android Go project.

As it is, the Nokia 1 may see a March 2018 launch, which points towards a possible debut at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 event that kicks off on February 26 in Barcelona, Spain. Unfortunately, the TENAA listing also revealed that the upcoming smartphone will only ship with Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box - no Android Oreo here. In a teardown of the company's latest camera app for its smartphones, it was uncovered that we will be seeing a Nokia 4 and Nokia 7 Plus coming soon as well. Suning is a trusted retailer and also one of the largest partners for Nokia phones in China.

Lending credence to the report, Nokia 6 (2018) bearing model number TA-1054 was spotted on state-run telecom certification agency TENAA revealing that the device will not be embracing the 18:9 aspect ratio but stick with the standard 16:9 aspect ratio. We'll have to wait until the phone is officially unveiled to find out for sure.

Additionally, the Nokia 6 will include 4G LTE support, dual-SIM card slots, and a fingerprint sensor on the back. And like every other smartphone maker, HMD Global is likely to expand the portfolio even more in 2018. He tweeted that the smartphone is expected to come with an HD display with 720x1280 pixel resolution. We will keep our eyes peeled, however, as Nokia may just surprise us!
