Yes, you heard that right. Nokia already launched the first ever Android device from Nokia. The smartphone phone is called Nokia 6. Previously, Nokia tried to launch a combination of Android and Microsoft user interface smartphone which was called the Nokia X series. But that didn’t go well with the company. Thus, it came up with a new Android device.
The phone was launched yesterday by HMD Global. The introduction of this phone was supposed to happen in Mobile Word Congress in February. But this sudden launch yesterday came as a shock to a lot of people.
The full specifications of Nokia 6
For the display, the phone comes with a screen size of 5.5 inches with a full HD resolution. The pixels include 1920*1080p. It has 2.5D curved glass display with 450 nits brightness and also a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection.
The specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 Octa Core 640 bit processor. The processor is divided into 4 * 1.2 GHz Cortex A53 + 4 * 1.5 GHz Cortex A53. The graphics include Adreno 505 GPU. It has got 4GB LPDDR3 RAM with 64 GB internal memory. The memory is expandable to 128GB with a microSD card.
For the camera you will get 16MP primary camera with a dual tone LED flash, PDAF, 1.0um sensor and f/2.0 aperture. The secondary camera is 8MP with the 1.12um sensor, f/2.0 aperture and 84-degree wide angle lens.
There are some additional features of this phone. You will get a finger print sensor, 3.5mm audio jack, with dual speakers and dual smart amplifiers. The speakers are Dolby Atmos speakers. The phone has got dual SIM facility with 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, GOS and USB OTG facility. It comes with Android 7.0 Nougat.
A major drawback
But a major drawback of this phone is the battery. It offers a battery powered with 3000 mAh. But considering the high-end specs like Full HD 1080p and Octa core processor, this battery power is too less. According to speculations, the battery might not last more than 6-7 hours on a single charge. With such high-end specs, Nokia 6 should come with a Dash charge facility that the other smartphones offer. But, some are also of the opinion that the latest Android Dose Technology will offer you more battery savvy operation. The software updates will keep your phone safe and secured.
Why the limited availability?
The price of Nokia 6 is 1699 Yuan. It is apparently $245, and in Indian currencies, it is Rs 16740. At present, it is available in China only. According to HMD, their Nokia Android devices will offer near stock experience. It will be available in India around the second half of 2017. The limited launch indicates that Nokia is gradually moving close to selling Nokia 6 smartphone in European markets. In a statement of HMD Global, they are focusing on meeting the real world needs of the consumers in different markets.
There are more than 552 million smartphone users in China in 2016. And this figure will grow more than 593 million in 2017. Thus, it is strategically important that the design and build quality is brilliant for the customers.
