White Nokia 6 expected to hit the shelves in April, China gets it first

The first Nokia-branded smartphone launched by HMD Global is still a Chinese affair. However, the Finnish company confirmed the Nokia 6 is ready for a global rollout, which should begin in May/June.

For the time being, the Nokia 6 is available exclusively in black color, but that won't change in about a week from now. Chinese retailer JD.com is now listing the Nokia 6 in white and claims the smartphone will be available for purchase on April 11.

The price is the same as the Black color version, but it will be slightly higher in other countries. The Nokia 6 costs around $220, but HMD announced the global model would retail for €229, while the Arte Black special edition will be up for grabs for €299.

Unfortunately, we can't confirm the new white Nokia 6 will be available in other countries as well. It would be nice to have more color options when the smartphone goes global, but that's not really of utmost importance to the success of the Nokia 6; at least not for the moment.

I would have bought Nokia too. But considering it has a poor camera. I will consider moto g5 plus over Nokia 6.

I am going to buy this Nokia. I always did and have fond memories of the Nokia of yesteryear. Only if they had gone android and not stick it out with that old symbian for so long.

Sorry guys. The Nokia N1 is an Apple spare parts Foxconn tablet. And this is who knows. Probably Foxconn again. Don't fall for it. The Nokia you knew and loved is dead. This is just a no name mid range phone with the Nokia logo stamped on money grab.

Dumb as in spot on? Nokia is dead, either still with Microsoft or layed off awhile ago. What's up with all these tards calling people dumb or stupid just because they don't like hearing the truth? How many idiot kiko007\lumia-luigi are on this website anyways?! http://www.androidpolice.com/2017/03/01/nokias-comeback-explained-historic-phone-company-suddenly-making-android-phones/

About as many omnitechs as there are. HMD is made up mostly of former Nokia employees we knew. Did you even read the last sentences of your source?

In 2013 Microsoft decided to buy Nokia for 7.6B USD for that they got a Nokia's devices division which was rebranded to Microsoft mobile. The whole deal included a • 10-year license to use the Nokia brand • The Asha and Lumia brands • 8500 design patents (should note that design patents don't include the any technology just the way something looks) so while Microsoft owns the iconic Lumia designs and the Pureview trademark all the technologies involved in these are still owned by Nokia • 10-year license for here maps and the rest of Nokia's patents What remained with Nokia was their networking division, their mapping divisions and their newly founded Nokia technologies which was like their new hardware division for any hardware, most of the senior staff stayed at Nokia (Nokia Technologies) some chose to leave and the rest went to Microsoft. To finish off Microsoft also got all of Nokia's manufacturing facilities except one factory in India that Nokia operated on behalf of Microsoft. o earlier this year after laying off thousands of Nokia staff, and having the Lumia brand completely flunk and with it windows phone market share, Microsoft decided to sell Microsoft mobile formerly the Nokia devices department. Now the sale was split into 2 halves. FIH and HMD Starting with FIH they are a subsidiary made by Foxconn for the sole reason of purchasing Nokia's feature phone divisions and factories and they have made a deal with Nokia and HMD to manufacture all Nokia devices so while yes all new Nokia phones are being developed by Foxconn they're being developed in the same Nokia factories they have been developed in for the last 2 decades or so Second we HMD, Same as FIH HMD was founded on the same day Microsoft sold their devices division and the right to the Nokia brand. They are funded by a private equity fund managed by a former Nokia executive. Their executives are all Ex Nokia execs whom have also helped companies like Rovio and HTC, they understand the market trends in Different places around the world and have deep understanding of the smartphone scene. On top of that HMD will be working very closely with Nokia they will cooperate with Nokia technologies as well have a board member from Nokia in their board and Nokia retains the right to cancel any phone which doesn’t meet their quality expectations! Some other things worth mentioning: • Axel Meyer guy heading the N9 design team still at Nokia • Juha Alkarahu one the main team members behind the Pureview technology back at • Nokia is still actively patenting phone related technologies in the end while people like you may claim the Nokia phones are Chinese phones with the Nokia logo slapped on them they are authentic Finnish Nokia phones developed by Nokia veterans and Nokia team manufactured in Nokia factories carrying Nokia innovations if there's any at the time also foxconn only handles manufacturing which is done in old nokia factories foxconn bought off microsoft so quit your bull

If you want to fall for their marketing trap. Go for it. Don't blame me when you realize all the tablets look like iPads and all their phones look like Lenovo's old division before they gave it to Motorola. Lol

I can't believe I read that some Nokia fans are actually going to buy this. Just get a Oneplus 3T or a Xiaomi Mi 5s. They are way better.

No one cares what YOU can't believe. Some people value thing regardless of some superficial spec sheet.

Kiko007, even you have to agree that no one will care about this Nokia 6 device, especially since it's only for Chinese customers.
