Called the Nokia 6, the phone is launched in China and is priced at 1699 Yuan, which is approximately $245.57 or £199.73. The company notes that it plans to launch more phones in the first half of 2017.

The Nokia 6 features a 5.5-inch screen with full HD resolution and 2.5D Gorilla Glass. Powering the phone is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, and 4 GB of RAM.

 

It has 64 GB of memory, a 16-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front camera. Both cameras feature an f/2.0 aperture. Additional features include dual amplifiers with audio powered by Dolby Atmos technology, and phase detection autofocus technology.

Nokia phones are known for their build quality and it seems like HMD has done its bit to ensure this holds true with the Nokia 6. The device features an aluminium build and the company says that it takes  55 minutes to machine the device from a block of aluminium. It then receives two separate anodising processes, which take over 10 hours to complete and each phone is polished at least five times.

Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer of HMD Global stated, “We have set ourselves a mission to deliver the best possible smartphone experience, with a beautiful premium design touch, to everyone, at every price point. By building on true Nokia phone hallmarks of leading design and materials, an obsessive focus on the latest technology and solving real-life issues, we believe we have a unique proposition for consumers. The Nokia 6 marks the first step on our journey, with more to come in 2017.”

The device will be available in China via JD.com in early 2017.
