If you’ve been waiting for the king to make a comeback, it’s your lucky day – HMD Global, the company that own the global licensing rights for Nokia’s brand name has officially announced the Nokia 6, their first ever Android-powered smartphone.

Curiously the phone is of the mid-range variety, packing a Snapdragon 430 chipset along with a 5.5-inch, full HD, 2.5D display. There’s 4GB of RAM on board, along with 64GB of storage. The 3000mAh battery is quickly replenished by QuickCharge 3.0. The rear camera is a 16-megapixel unit with f/2.0 aperture, PDAF and laser AF while the front camera is a 8-megapixel unit with an f/2.0 aperture.

The phone will launch in China first, unsurprisingly as an online exclusive, with a price of RMB 1,699 or around Php 12.1K. No international availability has been set as of yet.

  1. 12T para sa snapdragon 430? op parin… ang beside nokia is not really tested on an android system

    1. Same as Asus Zenfone 3 Laser, the difference is 64GB ROM. You have a point.. But we will see how the camera and build will materialize.

  2. It is pricey for the processor that includes on it. If ever
    they intent to sell this under 10K it will be a big hit for all Nokia fanatics.
    If they also push the battery a little bit higher as part of its selling point then
    that would be great.

  3. Pwde na di na masama ang pricing na ganyan. Compared sa zenfone 3 Max 5.5 ang lamang nya ay 4GB ram at 64gb rom tas may quick charge 3.0 pwede na sa addtl 2k . Nokia at lumia iisa lang naman yan. Kaibahan lang Android os na..

  4. Sad to say it is just a name but the maker is different…
    I love that brand so i hope the build quality will somehow same with original.
