Nokia just unveiled its long awaited comeback mobile, Nokia 6, powered by Android, and it has already managed to create some buzz online. After all, it’s been years since die hard fans were looking forward to this.
For the moment, it’s just a China-exclusive, but rumors claim that it could make it to other territories as well. However, until this happens, we finally got the chance to see it in full glory, after an unboxing video of the handset has been spotted online. And like this wasn’t enough, a set of camera samples were also leaked, so we can check out how good that 16 MP snapper on the back is.
In terms of design, there’s pretty much nothing spectacular about it, rocking e metallic body, with a matte finish on the back. Also, just like it was initially rumored, the display is covered by 2.5D curved glass, giving it a slightly premium look.

The Nokia 6 also features a fingerprint scanner hidden under the square-ish home button, while on the bottom we can spot the USB port and a strap hole. We’re really not sure why Nokia and HMD wanted the phone to have this last feature, since nobody is attaching charms to their smartphone nowadays. Or do they?
Powering up the phone reveals the iconic Nokia logo and their startup tone. And from there on, it’s just simple Android, with the company’s own user interface on top.
Moving on to the images taken by the Nokia 6, it seems that the phone is capable of a really sharp focus, as well as delivering some natural colors, which don’t make the photos look retouched. The photos seem taken in two different lighting conditions, by the way!
Otherwise, the Nokia 6 comes with a 5.5″ full HD display and it’s powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 420 chip, with an X6 LTE modem and aided by 4 GB of RAM. The storage capacity counts 64 GB, but it can be expanded, thanks to the presence of a microSD card slot. Finally, a 3000mAh battery is powering the device, while the sound quality is enhanced by the Dolby Atmos technology.
