It could be the first right step by Nokia to retain its long held loyal league of customers, isn’t it the right time to do a thing to make an impact while Samsungs become vulnerable blasting batteries and Apple launching a new phone model with not much different than removing the headphone jack – light talks apart , Samsung and Apple are great brands and have been leading the market for quite some time. Somehow where there is innovation and value for money in demand there seems to be an evident space in the global market for the veteran brand to mark its return – the memorable phone brand reminding our childhood and teenage to many may well be the right fit. Whatsoever, the Nokia’s new smartphone certainly looks sleek and the best value for money for a mid range phone.
Running on Android 7.0 Nougat, the dual SIM phone features a 5.5-inch full-HD display, 2.5D Gorilla Glass, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage and a 3000mAh non-removable battery.
There’s a fingerprint scanner, f/2.0 16-megapixel rear camera with face detection auto focus and dual-tone flash, an 8-megapixel f/2.0 front camera and Dolby Atmos sound.
The Nokia 6 has only been released in China for roughly 1,700 yuan, which converts to US$245 or AU$330 and unfortunately for now there are no plans to launch in other markets. “The decision by HMD to introduce its first Android smartphone into China is a reflection of the aim to meet the global needs of consumers in different markets around the world. China is a strategically important market,” HMD said in a statement.
Nokia was once the world’s dominant cellphone maker but missed the shift to smartphones, and then chose Microsoft’s Windows operating system for its “Lumia” range.
