HMD patents the design of the Nokia 6
HMD, which has a global brand license allowing it to design and produce Nokia handsets, has filed a patent for the design of a phone that strongly resembles the Nokia 6. The document was filed on November 18th and was approved just two days ago by EUIPO (the European Union Intellectual Property Office). The Nokia 6 was unveiled in January exclusively for the Chinese market. The handset sold briskly right off the bat. As a result, the phone will have a global release some time next quarter. A special edition will feature a glossy piano black rear cover.

The Nokia 6 is equipped with a 5.5-inch LCD display carrying a 1080 x 1920 (FHD) resolution. The Snapdragon 430 chipset powers the handset with an octa-core 1.4GHz CPU, and the Adreno 505 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of expandable native storage. The special edition Arte Black model will come with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage. The 16MP rear-facing camera has an f/2.0 aperture, and the 8MP snapper in front handles selfies and video chat. A 3000mAh battery is in charge of keeping the device powered up, and Android 7.1 is pre-installed.

HMD's deal with Nokia means that the Finnish company gets paid from HMD for every Nokia branded handset or tablet that is sold. These payments constitute royalties for using the Nokia name, and for intellectual property rights.

Considering screens with 2.5D curved glass often shatter on the first drop, the Nokia 6 doesn't even display a hairline fracture along the edges. So I think Nokia was onto something here with the Nokia 6, which is universally better built than any of Samsung's active series.

2.5D screen + no hairline fracture = better built than samsung active?
nice logic, lol...

just wait till phonebuff did nokia6 drop test and see how much facedown drop it can stand...
(side note: S7 active survive 50 drop WITHOUT a single hairline crack, only a few scratch since it use shatter resistant screen)
and dont forget that S7 active also dust+water-resistant and shock-resistant

Also S7 Active looks like Homer Simpson's butt.

Nokia 6 is very durable. One of the best out there.

Nokia 6 might be durable, but it ain't anywhere near the Active series from Samsung.

How you can compare Nokia 6 and S7 Active?!? Compare Nokia with Galaxy S7. You can compare S7 active with CAT phones...

This design will anyway be obsolete in 1 year max because all the mid range phones will have near bezeless display by 2018. Itll filter down obviously.

How many phone designs don't become obsolete after 1 year?

Welcome to PA comments where everything is far from the article, I guarantee that you're not even into half of the sinkhole.

Can't blame them, many people wanted Nokia to come back guns blazing. Patenting a rather generic Samsung looking design isn't going to make Nokia stand out.

They need to stop! (Patent a design).
Nokia or whatever their name is, haven't learn from history.. Patent equal someone else will sue them down the road.
Just make your phone and keep moving... SMH
