             So HMD Global is the company which had secured the brand name Nokia in late 2016 when the deal acquisition between Nokia and Microsoft got terminated. Thus ever since HMD Global has been the parent to the brand Nokia and officially owns the rights to the Nokia brand name concerning the license. As a result of which Nokia 6 was officially announced today in China. HMD Global assures that they will take care in providing quality products worth supplementing the iconic Nokia brand. Nokia products launched under HMD Global would bring back the Nokia Design, Build, Endurance and Elegance from the past in a bold fashion resembling their first ever device, the Nokia 6. The company adds that It takes nearly 55 minutes to craft an entire Nokia 6 from a single solid block of 6000 series aluminum. Then it undergoes two different set of anodizing processes which takes nearly Ten hours to complete. Later on, it's again polished for about five mins to obtain the final result of a well-built aluminum uni-body design.

Nokia 6 Specs:

                So the brand new Nokia 6 has a 5.5 inch Full HD hybrid in-cell display, Whereas it has a 2.5D curved glass on the edges. While speaking about protection, it has got covered by the corning gorilla glass. While remember the clear black display technology from the past Nokia Belle smartphones? HMD Global says that similar technology has been applied to the display on Nokia 6 which helps in an excellent readability, as claimed by the company. Speaking about the processor, The Nokia 6 comes with the Qualcomm's Snapdragon 430 Octacore chipset housing X6 LTE modem which claims to provide enhanced battery life & a better graphics performance. The processor has been coupled with 4GB RAM and 64GB Internal storage, Whereas no official word on expansion with memory card slot. But I feel that 64GB is more than enough. On top of that, it runs on the latest version of Android Nougat 7.1. However, I don't have any information as to whether it runs on stock version or if they have any skin on top of it.



                While if you speak about the design, I feel that it looks like a Oneplus 2 morphed into an iPhone 4 body. Whereas if we are talking about that, the Nokia 6 has dual amplifiers on board which is stated to deliver 6DB louder sound than any other conventional amplifier. That is possible due to the inbuilt Dolby Atmos support. Moving to the camera department, It houses a 16MP Rear camera with PDAF, F/2.0 aperture & 8MP Front Camera. They also have their particular camera application which is said to take better pictures with some software algorithm tweaks.
