The number of people who have registered to purchase the Nokia 6 has now reached the 1.4 million mark and this news comes two days before the next flash sale of the device that's scheduled to start in China on January 26th. The second flash sale will be held by the same online retailer as before, JD.com, otherwise known as JingDong Mall. The Nokia 6 will be priced at 1,699 yuan ($248).
Just five days ago, the first Nokia 6 flash sale was held on JD.com and all units were snapped up by consumers within a minute. The Nokia 6 is quickly gaining popularity in China if the number of registrants is any indication. When the device was first announced by HMD Global, 250,000 pre-registrations were made within a day, and that number further increased to 400,000 in the next 24 hours. It then hit the one million mark a few days before the first flash sale was held on January 19th. While a sum of $9 is required to register for the flash sale, there is no guarantee that every consumer will be able to purchase the Nokia 6 during the sale.
In terms of specs, the Nokia 6 is a mid-range offering from the Finnish company with a unibody frame built with aluminum alloys. Display-wise, it packs a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS LCD display with 2.5D curved glass protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3. Under the hood, the Nokia 6 packs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor and the Adreno 505 GPU for rendering graphics. Memory-wise, it comes with 4GB of RAM coupled with 64GB of internal storage which can be expanded by up to 128GB via a microSD card slot. For optics, the Nokia 6 features a 16-megapixel rear camera with phase detection autofocus (PDAF) and a dual tone flash, as well as an 8-megapixel front-facing shooter with an 84-degree wide-angle lens. For better audio quality, the smartphone comes with Dual Stereo Speakers, Dual Smart Amplifiers, and Dolby ATMOS. The device supports two SIM cards and is powered by a 3,000mAh non-removable battery. It also features a fingerprint reader which is embedded into its physical home button. The Nokia 6 is running Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box and is only currently available black, though a silver color variant may be on its way.
