After 24 hours, the Nokia 6 tallies over 250,000 registrations for its January 19th flash sale
Unveiled last weekend by HMD, the Nokia 6 is an exclusive for China's online mall. The phone is priced at the equivalent of $245 USD, and those interested in purchasing the device can register for a flash sale taking place on January 19th. Each registration you enter for the handset costs $9, which is deducted from the price of the phone for those who end up buying it via the flash sale.

In the first 24 hours, over 250,000 registrations have been received for the Nokia 6. This is a mid-range model powered by Android. The Nokia 6 is just the first of what will be as many as seven new Android powered phones launched this year by Nokia.

The handset was just put through the AnTuTu benchmark test where it scored a rather lackluster 44,517. This would probably be a good time to repeat the specs of the phone. The Nokia 6 carries a 5.5-inch display carrying a resolution of 1080 x 1920. The Snapdragon 430 chipset is under the hood containing an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 505 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of native storage. The phone sports a 16MP camera in back (with PDAF) and an 8MP front-facing shooter for selfies and video chats. Both have an aperture of f/2.0.

The phone was recently certified in China by TENAA, and photographs taken by the regulatory agency show the Nokia 6 in silver (which is in addition to the model already seen dressed in Black). Check out those photographs and more by clicking on the slideshow below.

Cool. Hope they fill the empty space left by other manufacturers, and release a smaller quality sub-5" among their lineup, with either a "stock" android ui, or at least be easy enough to flash a rom on.

The danger twords the big companies started to appear. I guess Nokia will cut a big chunk from 2017 market share. Nokia was extremely popular in China, India, and Middle East. They will getting back very soon. No need to mention about Nokia's homeland, Europe! Good luck

Totally agree. I'm hoping that Nokia gets a good chunk of smartphone market share as well. They still have such a strong brand name and loyal following. Makes you wonder just how different things might be had Nokia gone with Android in the first place, as opposed to going with Microsoft.

I wonder how much say did Nokia actually have in this design and UI. It seems as if a Chinese Tech company bought the use of the Nokia name because they knew it would sell really well.

1. Nokia 6 is tough, only rugged phone are tough than this, it remain operational -under 150N pressure, -on temperatures from -40°C (-40°F) up to 85°C (185°F) -in a 97 % humidity environment -through 200 testing cycles, with one of the best industry results. 2. It has best camera to rival flagship 3.Hybrid in-cell Technology which are used on flagship device since 2012 4. Dolby atmos which is uses in flagship like zte axon 7 support of 2 years, probably it will receive android 8 and android 9 1 and 2 only Nokia can do that, so Nokia has say, 3 to 5 show HMD is no chinese Oem
