Some time ago Nokia shared a word that they’re going to return to the smartphone business in 2017. Keeping the given word, the little forgotten Finnish brand takes the wraps of its new device. Developed under HMD Global, the Nokia 6 perfectly corresponds with all current smartphone trends and offers a combination of premium metal body, solid specs, reasonable price, and Android 7.0 Nougat out of box.
After years of silence, Nokia in partnership with HMD launches a new mid-range smartphone. Named Nokia 6, the phone combines solid tech parameters, metal body and Android Nougat.
At first sight, the Nokia 6 appears to be a really loaded device able to rival with majority of mid-range smartphones and even endanger some of the recent flagships. Dressed in an aluminum unibody the phone houses a physical home button hiding a fingerprint scanner – a feature common for more high-end handsets- and a sharp full HD 5.5-inch display. Although the device looks like a top-notch phone, some consider it to feature too common and hence uninspiring design bringing in mind the old well-known Nokia’s blocky form.
When it comes to the internals, the Nokia 6 is nothing more and less than a mid-range smartphone –a mid-range smartphone that fulfills all modern communication and entertainment needs. Powered by a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 430 processor coupled with 4GB RAM the phone runs the latest Android 7.0 Nougat. In the optics, department the phone provides its users with a 16MP f/2.0 primary camera accompanied by an 8MP f/2.0 front sensor in charge of selfies. Meanwhile, the installed Dolby Atmos dual amplifiers will take care of immersive sound experience while a 3,000 mAh battery will keep the whole thing ticking whole day round.
Judging by the specs sheet, the Nokia 6 has no reason to be ashamed of, perhaps except the processor. The aluminum body shell, the amount of RAM, 64GB of built-in storage, Dolby technology and great camera parameters allow the phone to compete with success with many Android flagship smartphones launched in 2016.
Unfortunately, at the moment the Nokia 6 is a China exclusive offering sold at 1699 CNY. However, the good news is that founded last year by ex-Nokia seniors HMD has brave plans to release other Nokia-branded phones to the international market later this year. Frankly speaking, priced at the equivalent of $250 the device has all necessary features to conquer the Western markets as its offers really respectable price-to-specs ratio. The only thing that would make the phone even better and more appealing is the handset’s processor.
