HMD Global-controlled Nokia‘s first smartphone Nokia 6 is set to go on its first flash sales on January 19 and ahead of the sales, the device has been up for reservations since it was first announced in China last week. The smartphone has since then been making waves, recording up to 230,000 registrations in just 24 hours.
Presently, with just two days left before the smartphone goes up for sales via China’s popular flash sales method, registrations are almost hitting the one million mark on Jingdong. The Nokia 6 will be sold exclusively on Jingdong (JD.com), so it is easy to track the number of registrations so far. What we are not sure of is if there are enough units in stock to meet the huge number of interests in the smartphone. Although, we don’t expect the number of registrations to translate into actual sales, as some may end up not buying the smartphone. The huge number of interests in the Nokia 6 seem not to be misplaced, though, as the device comes with a mid-budget price tag and a design that reflects Nokia’s rugged, durable body build design trademark.
As a reminder, the Nokia 6 features a 5.5-inch display with 1080 pixels resolution. It is powered by a Snapdragon 430 chipset which is backed by 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. It carries a 1699 yuan price tag.
