Rumors about HMD Global preparing a successor to the Nokia 6 recently surfaced online. Now, there’s reason to believe these rumors because the handset has appeared in a listing by Chinese regulation agency TENAA. From the looks of it, the upcoming device could feature a screen that’s pretty similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8’s Infinity Display.

The TENAA listing on a Nokia 6 (2018) Dual SIM handset was first spotted by Android Pure. While the listing mostly confirms some of the rumored specs and features of the device, it also dropped a bombshell by showing renders of the smartphone that appears to feature an Infinity Display-like screen.

Infinity Display is the term Samsung coined for the almost bezel-less, edge-to-edge display it used for its flagship phones this year, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8. It is worth noting that the Galaxy S8 has round corners, while the Galaxy Note 8 features sharper and more rectangular corners. This difference is what sets the two apart in terms of physical design.

The photo included in the TENAA listing shows the different sides of the Nokia 6 (2018) handset. Based on its front view, the phone seems to take cues from the Galaxy Note 8. The resemblance is somehow undeniable, considering that the upcoming Nokia handset also has very thin top and bottom bezels and a curved edge-to-edge display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. However, the other sides of the Nokia phone look nothing like the Note 8.

HMD Global may have also faced the same predicament that Samsung had when the latter was developing its 2017 flagship smartphones. In the absence of a front area to accommodate the fingerprint reader, the Finnish company also moved the sensor to the back of the handset. Fortunately, the company didn’t commit the mistake of placing the biometrics module beside the rear camera. As shown in the leaked image, the fingerprint scanner of the Nokia 6 successor is located just below the back camera module that houses both the lens and the LED flash.

Other specs and features that the listing revealed include the 6-inch display of the handset, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor and 4GB of RAM. There’s also mention of 32GB of internal storage, on-screen touch navigation buttons and Dual-Sight aka Bothie feature for the handset’s camera.

HMD Global announced the original Nokia 6 on Jan. 7, 2017, so it’s safe to assume that HMD Global could already be gearing up for the launch of its successor next month. Also, given the positive response toward the new Nokia phones released this year,  there’s reason to believe that yearly upgrades are coming this 2018, as pointed out by Phone Arena.
