HMD Global yesterday released its first Android-powered Nokia smartphone and quite honestly, it was a little short of our expectation. The Finnish company did not take the centre-stage at CES 2017 to do that, but rather silently unveiled the device, simply called Nokia 6, in China and they did curry some of the media attention already beamed on CES for the past few days.
Here are some cool hands-on images of the Nokia 6 which reveals the entire design features of the mid-range smartphone. The Nokia 6 launched with a somewhat familiar design that we probably had seen in the past, perhaps in leaked renders of the casing. The fused antenna band design is slightly visible at the edge of the device which is encased in an all-metal body made from aluminum.
As a reminder, the device sports a 5.5-inch display with 1080 pixels resolution. It is poweered by a Snapdragon 430 chipset which is backed by a cool 4GB of RAM. There is 64GB of storage onboard with the option of notching it further via microSD.
On the camera end, the device carries a 16MP rear sensor with a single LED flash lying just underneath it. While up front, there is an 8MP front-facing camera for sleek selfies. There is a 3,000mAh battery crammed inside the smartphone which should do justice to keeping the lights on for a longer period.
Priced at 1699 yuan, the Nokia 6 will hit the shelves in China before China’s New Year or Spring Festival later this month. For such a price, Nokia is got a lot of competitors to beat in the domestic Chinese market and even globally whenever the device is made available globally.
