This is Nokia’s new Android smartphone

Posted:  January 9, 2017   By:    8 comments   


Once a great giant, Nokia is making a comeback in 2017 through HMD Global. After introducing a feature phone last month, the Finnish brand has finally introduced a new smartphone that runs on Android with the Nokia 6.


Introduced exclusively for China, the Nokia 6 is HMD’s first step in delivering a true Nokia smartphone experience. Their decision to launch it in China is due to the sheer size of the market that has over 552 million smartphone users in 2016. The new device is focused on superior craftsmanship as the exterior is made from a solid block of series 6000 Aluminium and then receives two anodising processes for a premium unibody finish.


In front, it gets a 5.5″ Full HD display underneath a 2.5D Gorilla Glass and it runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor with Adreno 505 GPU along with 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage. For a better audio experience, it also packs dual amplifiers enhanced with Dolby Atmos.

The Nokia 6 also features a 16MP main camera with PDAF while selfies are taken cared by an 8MP front shooter. Connectivity wise, it uses Qualcomm’s X6 LTE modem that supports 4G LTE with download speeds up to 150Mbps and upload speeds up to 75Mbps. Out of the box, it will be running the latest Android 7.0 Nougat.


The Nokia 6 will be sold in China through at 1,699CNY, which is about RM1,097. Ultimately, HMD Global wants to deliver the best experience with beautiful premium design touch at every price point, which is something most Chinese brands like Xiaomi and honor are trying to achieve. Is the new Nokia heading for the right direction? Let us know in the comments below.

Why Snapdragon 430?


    Why not SD 430 ? 1.4Ghz Octa Core is good enough.


      Same like Proton, Nokia also badly run company. All tidur in office. Lazy and malas.


Why sd 430 with 4gb of ram? What a waste. Make it 3gb at most & lower the price bit more

    derek law

    agree. Low end chip and 4 gb ram is an odd combination, especially with dual amplifiers enhanced with Dolby Atmos.

    Should pack it with SD652 or perhaps even SD625 and market as a mid-ranger with premium specs.

orang biasa

i thought Nokia brand will "disappear" in Tech World, when MSoft take out.
Look like MSoft phone still cannot accept by end user, so "Nokia Rises" to alternate way.
Might can consider, wait SC review.


For the same price or less (by the time it's launched) look around for phones with the MTK X20 Deca-Core chipset with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. If they would have launched this. There are already some known brands with this SD430 chipset but lower memory selling for under RM500. Doubling the price does not justify an extra 2GB of memory and 64GB of storage. More so there's little value for anything more powerful than the SD650 or MTK P10 Helios mid range chipsets this generation because most people won't be able to differentiate them with their tiny phone screens.


Cool posting Admin,
