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...

Introducing the QMobile Z12 Pro – [Hands-On Review]

Introducing the QMobile Z12 Pro – [Hands-On Review]

QMobile has been in the market for quite a long time now and it has seen its ups and downs. This year they came up with a plethora of devices and a few stood out, one of them being the Z12 Pro. After using the device for a few days, I was quite happy (Sigh of Relief) with how QMobile has evolved in terms of feel and software smoothness. Ok! so diving right in, the QMobile Z12 Pro comes with a 5.5 inch FHD (1920×1080) display, with  a full metal body, bottom grill speakers and a fingerprint scanner. The device has a good grip, especially with the transparent back cover you get with the device. The device has dual sim capabilities, so you don’t need to carry another device for your office number. Qmobile have been generous enough to slip in an OTG cable in the box as well (for full details you can check out our un-boxing video). The FHD IPS LCD display is quite sharp, but you need to increase the brightness to around 80% to see it in bright sunlight. The sound on the device is pretty good, thanks to the DTS  integration, you can actually hear the difference when it is activated or not. On the power front, this mid ranger is no slouch, it runs on an 1.3 Ghz Media Tek Octa Core processor with 3GB of RAM, multi-tasking is very much do-able without a hitch, but some graphic heavy games such as Mortal Kombat X did tend to show a slight sign of lag, which you could easily look past if you are not a heavy gamer. The Z12 Pro comes with 32GB of storage (no 16GB model..YESS!!!) which is more than enough for hoarding pics,music,videos or just apps.If that is not enough you can always add a microSD card (upto 64GB) to bump up the storage. The device runs on Android 6.0.1 out of the box with QMobile’s own theme on it, so you get all the Android Marshmallow goodies with it with some additional benefits from the theme. Now looking at the camera’s on this device, the 13MP main camera, was able to take some really nice macro-shots and even some landscape shot as well, but again lighting is very important, so if you want to take low-light photos, you can get pictures but not as good as some of it competitors. We have taken some sample shots, so you can decide for yourself. The front 8MP camera comes with a flash, and to be really honest, it happily surprised me, the selfies came out pretty great. Finally the device runs on a 3,150 mAh battery...
