HMD Global’s Nokia 6 2018 and flagship Nokia 9 are the talk of the town. The former one will be the successor to this year Nokia 6 while the later will be the highest priced smartphone HMD Global has ever made.
The Nokia 6 2018 with model number TA-1054 has been recently spotted on TENAA. From a previously leaked image, we know the Nokia 9 will have model number TA-1005, TA-1009 and TA-1042 and the code A1N.
The Nokia 6 2018 and the Nokia 9 has also been spotted in the 3C certification or China Compulsory Certification (CCC). From the below image, we can see the Nokia 6 2018 as TA-1054 and the Nokia 9 as TA -1042. The 3C certification is similar to other certifications for product quality standardization such as the European CE system, but there are important differences. This certification introduced in 2002 replaced the certifications of the China Import and Export Commodity Inspection Bureau (CCIB) and the China Commission for Conformity Certification of Electrical Equipment (CCEE) thereby significantly simplifying foreign trade with China.
The passed certifications hints that Nokia 6 2018 and Nokia 9 will be first launched in China and India may be one of the top countries HMD Global will be focusing on. Along with the TA-1042 that has been certified, Nokia 9 might be available with two other variants with model number TA-1005 and TA-1009.
According to the rumours, the Nokia 9 will be unveiled at the HMD product conference is scheduled to be held on January 19, 2018. HMD Global itself said they will be launching high-end flagships. The Nokia 6 2018 may be released alongside the Nokia 9. Also, they may get an early preview at the CES 2018 starting from Jan 9 to Jan 12 next year.
