Nokia launches its first ever Android Phone – The Nokia 6

Nokia launches its first ever Android Phone – The Nokia 6

After months of speculations and unconfirmed rumors, Nokia, the brand that we had loved and basically grew up with is finally back with a big bang. After securing the exclusive Nokia brand licensing rights in mobile phones in late 2016, HMD Global Oy (“HMD”) is proud to announce the launch of its Nokia 6 smartphone in China. The Nokia 6 marks the first step in HMD’s ambition to set a new standard in design, material quality and manufacturing innovation across every tier of its products by building on the hallmarks of a true Nokia phone experience. The device, which is designed explicitly with the needs of users in mind, combines quality and in-built durability to deliver a real-life premium smartphone experience at a price point for the highly aspirational Chinese consumer. The decision by HMD to launch its first Android smartphone into China is a reflection of the desire to meet the real world needs of consumers in different markets around the world. With over 552 million smartphone users in China in 2016, a figure that is predicted to grow to more than 593 million users by 2017, it is a strategically important market where premium design and quality is highly valued by consumers. With the arrival of Nokia 6, consumers will see superior craftsmanship and design quality in action. It takes 55 minutes to machine a single Nokia 6 from a solid block of 6000 series aluminium. It then receives two separate anodizing processes, taking over ten hours to complete, with each phone being polished no less than five times. The end result is an aluminium uni-body with the highest level of visual and structural quality. Delivering quality to the core, the Nokia 6 display has a bright hybrid in-cell 5.5” screen with full HD resolution and incredible colour reproduction wrapped in 2.5D Gorilla Glass. The display stack is laminated together with a polarizer layer enabling excellent sunlight readability and slim form. The build is completed with the latest generation Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 430 processor with X6 LTE modem designed for excellent battery life and superior graphics performance. The Nokia 6 has 4GB RAM and 64GB storage with which to run the latest version of Android Nougat and is packed with entertainment to bring to life the latest that Android has to offer. The dual amplifiers deliver a 6dB louder sound than a regular amp, giving higher voice, deeper bass and unmatched clarity. Dolby Atmos creates powerful, moving audio that seems to flow all around users. The Nokia 6 packs a 16MP phase detection auto focus rear camera for sharp detailed pictures, and an 8MP front camera. The f/2.0 aperture lenses and exclusive camera UI...

CES 2017 which concluded yesterday in Las Vegas, once again lived up to its reputation of being the world’s best platform for different OEMs to showcase their upcoming devices most of them being consumer electronics. Even though we didn’t get to see too many smartphone manufacturer’s at the event (as it was expected) there were a few who did. Xiaomi had a few good devices on display. These included their bezel-less LED TV’s, a white variant of their flagship device the Xiaomi Mi Mix and three new colors for the ultra powerful Mi Note 2. The Chinese OEM that has really impressed us in recent times had launched the Note 2 in October last year. The device packs some powerful specs that includes a 5.7″ FHD dual edge curved display, a quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, 4G RAM/64 GB storage or 6GB RAM/128GB storage (SD card is not supported), 22.5MP rear and an 8MP front camera, a 4070mAh battery and runs on Android Marshmallow. The Mi Note 2 initially got launched in three colors Black, Silver  and Gold but now the company have unveiled Pink, Purple and Green variants of the same as well. There has been no official announcement yet as far as pricing and availability of the new color variants are concerned but we do expect them to start retailing in the next few months.
