Nokia promised to get back into the smartphone game this year with a couple of android powered smartphones and now we have the Nokia 6. HMD (the company that owns the branding rights to Nokia) have announced a China-exclusive mid-ranger dubbed the Nokia 6. It will be exclusive to China’s Jd.com.
The Nokia 6 smartphone has an aluminium body, and is powered by a Qualcomm Xeon 430 eight core chip, 64GB internal storage, 4GB of RAM and Adreno 505 GPU, includes a 5.5 inch IPS LCD, Full HD (1920 x 1080) with 403ppi, 2.5D curved third generation Corning Gorilla glass protected display. The Nokia 6 also features a 16MP rear camera with an f/2.0 aperture and Phase Detection Autofocus coupled with an f/2.0 8MP selfie camera.
Other specs include Dolby Atmos stereo speakers, Bluetooth 4.1, LTE, 3000 mAh with Quick Charge 3.0, USB on the go, USB 2.0, Android 7.0 Nougat, MicroSD support of upto 128GB, Dual SIM with GSM and CDMA, and a fingerprint reader placed right in front with a home button like they do on Samsung smartphones.
The Nokia 6 will be launched only in the Chinese market (at least for now) and it seems to be a very promising mid ranger with a starting price of $245 (around KES.25,000). HMD is set to launch a total of 7 Nokia smartphones this year and the Nokia 6 is a clear sign that its going to be a good year for Nokia. Here’s a short product video of the Nokia 6:
