The Nokia 6 has received over 400,000 pre-registrations since the company made it possible for consumers to sign up for the first flash sale of the device, which was only a couple of days ago. Speaking of which, the first flash sale will take place on January 19th. Now, do keep in mind that the Nokia 6 is currently available only in China through JD.com (JingDong Mall), which is one of China’s largest retailers, if not the largest one. Consumers in China can pre-register for the Nokia 6 purchase for a fee of $9, and that fee will be deducted from the phone’s final price, which is $245.
The company had received over 250,000 pre-registrations in the first 24 hours, and that number has now grown significantly up to this point. It seems like consumers in China are quite interested in HMD Global’s first Nokia-branded device. The Nokia 6 is a budget smartphone, it comes with an entry-level processor from Qualcomm, but the rest of its specs are quite solid actually. The device is currently only available in China, as already mentioned, but Nokia could expand the device’s availability in the coming months. The company had already teased a new event for February 26th, just in time for MWC 2017, and if rumors are accurate, they might introduce the Nokia 8 aka Nokia Supreme smartphone, which would be their first flagship handset. This smartphone is rumored to land in both Snapdragon 835 and Snapdragon 821 SoC variants, but do take this info with a grain of salt, as nothing has been confirmed just yet.
The Nokia 6 comes with a 5.5-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) display, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable internal storage. The device is fueled by the Snapdragon 430 64-bit octa-core processor, along with the Adreno 505 GPU for graphics. The phone features a 16-megapixel snapper on the back, while an 8-megapixel camera is available on the device’s front side. This phone sports a 3,000mAh non-removable battery, and it comes with Android 7.0 Nougat pre-installed. Speaking of which, the device’s UI is actually based on CyanogenMod 14, as we’ve managed to find out recently. Nokia did a really good job when it comes to build quality here, as the device is capable of cracking walnuts with its display. All in all, it will be interesting to see how many Nokia 6 units will the company be able to sell by the end of this year.
