HMD Global is the new Finnish company that acquired the rights to sell Nokia-branded phones from Microsoft. And the first of those phones just launched in China.
It’s called the Nokia 6, and it’s a $245 phone with an interesting mix of premium and mid-range hardware. The phone will only available from Chinese online retailer JD.com at launch, but it’s just the first of many Nokia phones we expect from HMD in the coming years.
The smartphone features a 5.5 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage, which all sound like the kind of features you’d expect from a top-tier phone. But the $245 price tag makes more sense when you take the processor into account: the Nokia 6 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core chip instead of a more powerful 600 series or 800 series processor.
Other features look pretty good on paper though, including an aluminum case, a 16MP rear camera with phase detection autofocus, an 8MP front camera, a 3,000 mAh battery, a fingerprint sensor, microSD card slot, dual SIM support, stereo speakers, and Android 7.0 software.
