After a couple of images with a presumed Nokia E1 were spotted online, it seems that another highly-rumored Nokia handset is about to make its official debut! And this time, we have information coming from genuine sources!
HMD, the company that is now in charge with Nokia smartphones, just sent out a press release announcing the unveiling of the Nokia 6, a mid-range smartphone, powered by Google’s operating system.
And yes, we do know the specs and exact launch date as well. The handset will be introduced today and it comes with an in-cell 5.5″ display, with a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, covered by 2.5D curved glass. It’s powered by Qualcomm’s 430 chipset, with an octa-core configuration, and aided by 4 GB of RAM, while an Adreno 505 GPU is in charge with graphics.
Nokia 6 Hands-on Images
On the back, the Nokia 6 has a 16 MP snapper, with f/2.0 aperture and PDAF laser auto focus, while an 8 MP camera, with the same f/2.0 aperture, will take care of your selfie needs.
The press release also mentions Qualcomm’s QuickCharge 3.0 technology.
The phone will initially be available just on JD.com and will have a price of around $245. Most likely, HMD decided to test the market with the Nokia 6 and China is definitely one of the best choices, considering the fact that in 2017, the number of smartphone users is expected to reach 593 million, as well as the high value placed on premium design and quality.
We’re looking forward to seeing more update with this new smartphone, as well as other Nokia models soon!
