The Consumer Electronics Show 2017, or CES 2017, is coming to an end on January 8. It seems like Nokia has already been overpowered by other innovations to reach the headlines. However, Nokia’s comeback may seem like so when one sees the specs.
For some time now, there are rumors about the Nokia E1 coming out. Furthermore, HMD Global has helped Nokia carry its first ever Android-powered smartphone. According to reports, Nokia and HMD Global were supposed to release two smartphones: a mid-range and a flagship phone. However, it seems that only Nokia did not even reveal a phone or their concept during CES 2017. Reports and rumors say that Nokia and HMD Global are waiting for the Mobile World Congress 2017 that is set to take place on February 27.
Nokia 6 specs and features
According to Forbes, the Nokia 6 features a 4GB RAM, 64GB built-in storage with MicroSD support and a whopping 3,000mAh battery to power through the day. It has a front and back camera that are 8 megapixels and 16 megapixels, respectively. Having at 8MP front snapper means you’ll have clearer selfies and photos. The main camera will also have autofocus and LED flash features. This phone is also 4G/LTE capable. According to Neowin, the new Nokia 6 will also have a front-facing fingerprint scanner with support for Dolby ATMOS surround sound technology.
The Nokia 6 will run on an octa-core 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. No one knows which Qualcomm Snapdragon model is in the Nokia 6. However, with this knowledge, it is expected to perform well with the latest Android 7.0 Nougat. This phone will have a 5.5-inch Full HD (1920x1080px) resolution. According to rumors, it will only cost 1699 Yuan (approx. $245). This will be Nokia’s first smartphone to run the Android operating system.
Beyond the internal aspects of the Nokia 6, it will also sport an all-aluminum body with only a thickness of 8mm. The Nokia 6 is rumored to be a mid-ranged smartphone. However, its insides do not make it seem like it is. According to Chief Executive Officer of HMD Global Arto Nummela, the new handsets will not focus on the superlative specs but will offer “premium quality” and “competitive pricing.”
