Nokia has announced its return to the global smartphone stage with the launch of the Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3, a trio of Android smartphones designed to attack the affordable segment of the market.
The Nokia 6 first launched in China as a JD.com exclusive and by all accounts, it was very well received. The Nokia 6 saw 1.3 million pre-registrations in 4 days and once it went on sale, demand outstripped supply.
Now this affordable Nokia comeback phone is coming to the rest of the world. Here’s everything you need to know about the Nokia 6.
Designed for perfection, built to last
Nokia 6 continues in the footsteps of our design heritage: it has a striking clean look, a smooth metal exterior and precise details – and five colors to choose from, including a limited edition glossy Arte Black.
Made to be life-proof
The body of Nokia 6 is crafted with integrity from seamless precision-milled aluminium, taking 55 minutes to machine from a solid block of metal. Together with the sculpted Corning® Gorilla® Glass, it’s made with materials that can take on life as you know it.
Watch and read on the big, bright display
The 5.5” full-HD display and wide color reproduction make it easy to enjoy your entertainment, even while out and about in bright daylight. And the wide viewing angle makes it easy to watch videos with friends.
With Nokia 6’s dual speakers and dedicated amplifier, you get loud sound, deep bass and great clarity. Comes with certified Dolby Atmos® sound.
Document your life with the 16 MP camera
Snapping photos of your favorite moments is easy with the camera app on Nokia 6. There’s a 16 MP phase detection autofocus camera on the back, and an 8 MP camera on the front. Plus the dual-tone flash on the main camera helps you take natural-looking photos, even in low light.
Pure, secure and up to date
Nokia 6 comes with Android Nougat, the full spread of Google Services and no unnecessary extras. You get an experience that’s focused and clutter-free, and we’ll make sure you keep getting regular updates, so you’ll always stay on top of features and security.
