Nokia 6 Android powered smartphone unveiled; phone will launch in China powered by SD-430


Earlier today, we showed you the box belonging to a phone called Nokia 6 that we thought could be the Nokia D1(C). But a press release just sent out by HMD has announced the unveiling of the Nokia 6. The release, dated Sunday because of the time difference, notes that HMD has the exclusive licensing rights to use the Nokia brand on mobile phones.

The Nokia 6 features a Gorilla Glass protected, in-cell 5.5-inch 2.5D display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 (FHD). The Snapdragon 430 chipset powers the phone, containing an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 505 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of native storage. The 16MP rear camera carries an f/2.0 aperture and PDAF laser auto focusing. In front is an 8MP camera, also sporting an f/2.0 aperture, for selfies and video chats.



The phone will launch early this year as a JD.com exclusive. It will be priced at the equivalent of $245 USD. HMD chose China to launch the phone because of the large number of smartphone users (593 million expected in 2017) and because of the high value placed on quality and premium design.
