Nokia 6 vs Apple iPhone 7 vs Samsung Galaxy S7 edge: three-way specs comparison

13

In case you've missed the memo, the much-anticipated revival of Nokia on the mobile smartphone scene is already a fact - the Nokia 6 got officially announced just a couple of days ago and it looks like a not-too-shabby start for the rejuvenated well-known phone brand of old. 

While it's true that the Nokia 6 is mostly a mid-range affair that won't be available outside China for now, its recent announcement sends the clear message that HMD Global (the de facto manufacturer behind the 6 and all upcoming Nokia smartphones) is ready and willing to shake up the status quo and try to find its place under the sun. For now, it's making its baby steps and it's fair to say that its journey will be an interesting one.

But just how mid-range is that exotic Nokia 6 smartphone, and better yet, how does it stack up against the most popular phones out there? By popular, we have in mind two devices that hardly need any introduction - the Apple iPhone 7 Plus and the Galaxy S7 edge.

Here's a brief specs comparison between the three!
