Nokia back in the mobile phone game

Nokia back in the mobile phone game


The much anticipated Nokia Android mobile phone is finally on sale, which is great if you live in China but not much good if you live anywhere else in the world.


That’s right the new Nokia 6 is only available to the chinese market and as far as we know there are no plans to release this particular model of phone anywhere else. Therefore the closest you might get to it could be the video on the Nokia website below: 


A good source has it that there were over a million pre registrations for the Nokia 6 in China and when the phone actually went on sale on the 19th January it sold out in less than one minute! It might seem like a strange decision for Nokia to only sell the 6 in China but when you look at the size of the market (over 550 million smartphone users) it kind of makes sense.


The phone itself is an Android Nougat mobile made from one piece of series 6000 aluminium. It has 2.5D Gorilla Glass for protection with 5.5 inch HD laminated in-cell display. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and a 3000 MAH battery.


Nokia are also taking about the new phones multimedia capacity. It can deliver louder sound, a deeper bass and excellent clarity because of the dual amplifiers and dolby atmos. It also has a 8 mega pixel selfie camera as well as a 16 megapixel auto focus regular camera.


As you probably know, Nokia have gone from hero of the mobile phone world to zero so could this be the start of their comeback? Although we aren’t going to see the Nokia 6 here in the UK there are other models in the pipeline. Keep your eyes peeled for the Nokia Heart (a budget version of the Nokia 6), the Nokia 8 and the Nokia P1.


As soon as a new Android Nokia is on sale in the UK you’ll be able to insure it here with Insurance2go.
