Nokia 6 sells out its initial flash sale in one minute
Nokia is back. The brand spanking new Nokia 6 took about one minute to sell out during its first flash sale held on Wednesday morning. The handset is an exclusive of, and was priced at the equivalent of $247 USD. Over 1 million registrations were listed for the flash sale. The exact number of units sold was not disclosed, and another similar offering is expected to take place shortly.

The Nokia 6 features a 5.5-inch display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The Snapdragon 430 chipset is under the hood, carrying an octa-core 1.4GHz CPU and the Adreno 505 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of native storage. A 16MP rear-facing camera comes with an f/2.0 aperture, and the 8MP front-facing camera shoots selfies and handles video chats. Keeping the lights on is a 3000mAh battery, and Android 7.0 is pre-installed.

We expect several more Nokia handsets to be introduced next month at MWC, including the Snapdragon 835 powered Nokia P1 flagship. As we explained back in July when we showed you a leaked press render of the phone, the Nokia P1 is based on the Sharp Aquos Xx3 with upgraded specs such as 6GB of RAM, up to 256GB of internal storage, the top-of-the-line Snapdragon chipset, dual speakers and a fingerprint scanner. The Nokia P1 will have a Gorilla Glass 5 protected 5.3-inch display with either 1080 x 1920 or 1440 x 2560 resolution. The model with 128GB of internal storage is expected to be priced at $800, while the variant sporting 256GB of native storage might be tagged at $950.

1: Why do a lot of people think that Nokia is/was dead? Nokia never died, they still have around 60.000 people working! They only sold the phone division to Microsoft! They have billions of profit each year! Nokia exist since 1865, lets see if Apple or Google can manage that! 2: HMD Global is not Chinese, it is based in Finland and the employees are from Nokia and Microsoft! Yes the new phones are made in China........just like the iphones.........

Yeah...I can't believe they downgraded the processor from SD 652 and the camera will be cr@p compared to Nokia's.

Can we agree that old Nokia is gone forever? Doing a China-exclusive launch and flash sale like any other mandarin talking company.

So many average customers will come back to Nokia just for a reason "i had nokia before and it was superb device". I am so happy to see Nokia back to game again. First devices will probably cut share from Sony and HTC. With more devices coming they might come back into top 5.

I have a Shamesung phone and I really regret having a Shamesung. I bought it only because there was NO alternative. Shamesung didn't understand that they NEED to innovate, stop copying and bring quality hardware until S6 even I will say S7... To late for Shamesung. Waiting for the Nokia monster flagship Pureview.

They might bounce back. Just look at Huawei's sales surge.

If Microsoft didn't bail them out, all of their revenue and capital accumulated since the mid 90s would have gone down the drain. There was no way Nokia could have survived the onslaught waged by the more advanced technologies offered by Apple and Samsung/Google. They were miserably and palpably way behind, tech-wise. MS buying them out effectively gave them precious time to recoup their losses and strategize for what we are about to witness in the coming months an all-out battle against Apple, Google and Samsung. More importantly, they received a payment enough for them to make a comeback.
