On 8 January, Nokia 6, the mid-range and new Nokia-branded smartphone was officially unveiled by HMD Global, the company that bought the rights to make devices with Nokia’s brand name; however, it was sold exclusively in China, which upsets a number of international customers.
Nokia 6 has just been made available for reservations in China for $9, ahead of its official release on January 19. So, if you live in China, just act quickly to ensure that you will be one of the first ones to get the smartphone. Nokia 6 will be available at 10 am via JD.com, the exclusive retail site for the Nokia Android phone.
Shipping with the latest Android 7.0 Nougat software installed out of the box, Nokia 6 smartphone features a 5.5-inch 1080p touchscreen with 2.5D Gorilla Glass on top, a 16MP rear camera and an 8MP front-facing camera, and a 3,000mAh non-removable battery. The dual SIM smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor along with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of expandable storage. Nokia 6 also includes a fingerprint scanner embedded in its Home button, Dolby Atmos tech and dual amplifiers for louder sound.
HMD Global has said it would introduce even more Nokia-branded Android smartphones at next month’s Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, Spain.
Nokia remained in the top of the worldwide smartphone market for over a decade starting in the 1990s. However, the Finnish smartphone maker slid into obscurity when being in direct competition with first Blackberry then Apple and Samsung.
