This also means that now all those pictures, films, songs and videos do not need to unload.
Nokia launches the phone on an Android Nougat, the first of its kind with the only past phone launched being Nokia X many years back. Android makes availability of the largest set of apps and can be downloaded easily from the latest app store. This gives a definite boost to the sales of the phone which initially was criticized for being closed sourced making it difficult for customers to find and download apps that were not available on the Windows platform.
Nokia 6 is packed with a 16 Megapixel primary camera on the back end and an 8 Mega pixel selfie shooter on the screen side. The flash option is available on the back end only. The zoom shot offers crystal clear focus making the picture clicking experience a whole new fun.
One of the primary concerns with people expecting the Nokia 6 is the battery life. Well this is sorted to as the phone is duly powered by a 3000mAh non removable battery. It measures 154.00 x 75.80 x 7.85 (height x width x thickness). The best part is that it does not render the phone a bulky look but instead is sleek but powerful to support this beauty. 6. Network options Nokia 6 is a dual SIM (GSM + CDMA and GSM + GSM) smartphone. It is compatible to almost all international network providers especially of the countries where it is to be launched. It supports 2G, 3G and 4G as well as LTE.
Nokia 6 is available in a unibody design which is frame din metal and for the moment is available in Black. Colour options may become available in the future launches and also depending upon the response of the product.
Though the specifications are sufficient to draw the call for an instant buy but still the OMG`s remain. Nokia 6 also has a set of sensors on the phone which are installed to aid the Compass Magnetometer, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Ambient light sensor and Gyroscope. Bundled together it is a perfect signing off to the specifications column and makes this phone even more interesting as these options a rare combination at such price brand on offer.
Nokia 6 Price in India
Being launched exclusively in China for the moment is it available only on limited selling options and would cost the customers about 1699 CYN(Chinese Yuan) which at exchange rate amounts to somewhere near 17000 INR. The company though promises that it would launch the phone in India soon as the country has been a valuable and loyal market for the brand in its parent form. Currently the plans for an exclusive India launch is not on the cards but the customers can expect the same to happen by the end of the first quarter this year. Price disclosures for the phone in India may vary but compromise on the specifications is unlikely to happen.
Though Nokia would be desperate to bring the phone out as early as possible in other countries as well but the customers need to wait till the second quarter of this year perhaps the first week of March for it to be officially launched universally. The company is not announcing any word on the colors and the other variants of the phone thus a patient wait is bound to bring great results. All in all it is a must have for all those who are planning for a phone change in the coming future or would like to explore something apart from Apple and Samsung. Nokia 6 has all the potential in changing the fortunes of the company and is a desirable gadget for the customers.
