And finally, 2017 brings us a Nokia smartphone Nokia 6. Although we all have been expecting a Nokia smartphones in this year as there have been multiple leaks in the past regarding Nokia is going to launch one big, premium surprise device, there have been every kind of rumor we have seen about the Nokia’s Smartphone device. And the Nokia surprise all of us with the sudden launch of the Nokia 6 smartphone. If we talk in terms of features and specification about the Nokia 6, then a smartphone is an average one.
Nokia has had a bit of bad patch. While it once was at the top of its game, things soon went downhill for the Finnish brand when they refused to move with the time and decided to stick to their own native. After Nokia’s sale to Microsoft, it was re-emerging as Nokia Lumia or Lumia series smartphones which also, fizzled soon after giving a couple of hit devices. It is HMD that now Nokia is manufacturing and launching the Nokia smartphones and the same brand has launched Nokia 6. HMD also purchased the right to use NOKIA branding for the company.
Nokia 6, which so far has been launched in China. We are not looking at Nokia X, which sort of played with Android and came with the third party app integration on the smartphone. But Nokia 6, which is a pure android device promises a lot of users at a budget price of the smartphone. The smartphone Nokia 6 features an Aluminium 6000 series unibody design, that HMD claims take 55 minutes to put together along with the five levels of polishing. Most smartphones today come with a unibody design and the focus is on aesthetics as much as it is on features. Therefore, no Nokia 6, we aren’t buying the “beauty” view that you’re selling.
If we talk about the specification of the Nokia 6 smartphone, Nokia runs Android Nougat out of the box. Now that the best things about the smartphone as there are hardly any flagships around running the newer Android Nougat version, forget about the mid-ranger. Android Nougat is the key feature if this Nokia 6 smartphones. Coming to the display of the phone, Nokia 6 comes with the 5.5 inch of full HD display and 2.5 d curved glass on the top. Nokia 6 smartphone comes with the 64 GB of internal memory and 4 GB of RAM. All the features of this phone from a mid-ranger perspective are not spectacular and the most disappointing of them all is the processor which is a much older version with the most mid-rangers having advanced processors.
Nokia 6, priced at CNY 1699 which is around Rs 16000 in India. More of previews by Nokia of what is to come next in the future. The smartphone is completely average and there are great brands which are providing great specification at a cheaper price. Especially if you talk about Chia, where brands like Xiaomi, LeEco, OnePlus, Gionee which are launching great smartphones. For Nokia, to re-enter in the market with a less than an average device might harm a brand and as Nokia needs a strong launch creating waves rather than an average device which is easily be forgotten.
