Clash of the nostalgia-jerkers: BlackBerry KeyOne vs Nokia 6 specs comparison

Clash of the nostalgia-jerkers: BlackBerry KeyOne vs Nokia 6 specs comparison
This year, we saw the return of the Nokia-branded smartphones — designed and made by HMD Global, the Nokia 6 is the first of a new line of Nokia handsets. And, naturally, it has phone enthusiasts' ears perked up. The good-old Nokia certainly left people with fond memories... that was before the company's mobile division was bought by Microsoft and utilized in a way that was less than successful.

We also get the resurrection of BlackBerry — the company hasn't been gone from the phone market for long, per se, as its last major release was the DTEK60 a flagship-class Android smartphone. However, with its release, the company did announce that it will stop developing smartphones. Turns out, BlackBerry licensed its brand and software suite for use by TCL — the company that will continue building the phones. The first product to come from that partnership is the BlackBerry KeyOne.

So, we've got two jurassic brands with a bit of new hope injected in them. Let's put their very virst products side by side!
