by Habeeb Onawole 15

Nokia just took the wraps off it’s first smartphone and it is called the Nokia 6. It appears it wasn’t a codename after all.

The Nokia 6 is made from a singe piece of aluminium. It sports a 5.5-inch Full HD display and comes with Android 7.0 out of the box.

There is a Snapdragon 430 processor under the hood, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. The rear camera is a 16MP sensor with LED flash; and for selfies, there is an 8MP shooter up front. There is LTE and dual SIM support and Nokia has thrown in a 3000mAh battery.

The Nokia 6 also sports dual speakers that pump out sound from all directions making ”you feel like you are inside the action”. There is also a front-mounted fingerprint scanner in front that doubles as the home button. Flanking the fingerprint scanner on each side are the back and recent apps capacitive keys. However, from the video below it does look like they are backlit.

The volume rocker and power button are positioned on the right hand side and the SIM tray is on the left.

The Nokia 6 is a China exclusive and will be sold on It should be available for purchase later this month.

    What makes this phone a Nokia exactly, other than the name? I see nothing worth the premium price here

  • MitsosDaBest

    Very expensive for these specs. No go…

  • goodwill

    Well, off to a bad start already.

      Not really. It really depends on if it has typical Nokia trademarks. Will it have great software? Will it get constant updates? Will it release sources as soon as possible? Will it be indestructible? Will the battery last a century? Will the sensors, lenses and camera software be top notch? Nokia has always been expensive for its raw hardware but when you spend that money you’re spending it on these factors. Not hardware spec.

        This Nokia company isn’t the old Nokia company. The only thing that is the same is the brand name. Everything else is different.

        • lildwell

          I know it isn’t but they can still honor the brand name and follow in the old Nokia’s footsteps. If they do then soc really doesn’t matter. People will still buy it because it has the attributes of the old Nokia. Its too early to start screaming failure.

          • balcobomber25

            The problem is the old Nokia’s brand name has very little value. They need to build the brand name back to what it was before Microsoft ran it into the ground. You don’t do that by offering overpriced phones with budget processors. Especially when your competitors offer flagship level phones for $50 more.

          • lildwell

            Or they can offer what Nokia used to offer. A phone has always been more than its soc like I mentioned earlier. That’s why I’m not jumping the gun on the soc choice yet. They could very well pull an old Nokia so the jurybis still out on my end.

          • balcobomber25

            They need to develop a fanbase before they can pull an old anything. And the SD430 is a very limited chip, not many people are going to buy the N6, other than the few remaining Nokia fanboys. If HMD continues this pricing structure they won’t be in business long enough for that jury to come back.

    $245? , Are you kidding me Nokia? I can buy a Mi5 today for that price

  • Muhammad Yasir

    the price is HORRID !

  • Saku

    Lol, Nokia… Their idea of a $100 phone is bloated by their Nougat-straight-from-the-box gimmick with an additional $145. Just hell no.

  • very, very expensive! please, send me the next!!!!

  • balcobomber25

    Hahaha this a New Years Joke right?

    Nokia is dead before they even launch. $245 for a SD430? They are trying to sell based on the Nokia brand name. What they don’t realize is that brand name has no value in 2017.
