The upcoming Nokia Android phone, the Nokia 6, has been unboxed in a YouTube video ahead of its January 19 release. The device was acquired by news site TechDroider which was sent the unit from China, where the phone will go on sale.
The Nokia 6 has been developed by HMD Global, the Finnish startup which now owns the Nokia brand, and is powered by Android Nougat. The smartphone displays the familiar Nokia logo onscreen as it boots up and the host of the video notes that the device “just feels premium” in the hand. Check it out below
The Nokia 6 comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD display with 2.5D Gorilla Glass, Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. It features a 16 MP rear camera and an 8 MP front-facing camera, and provides dual amplifiers that HMD Global says will “deliver a 6 dB louder sound than a regular amp.” The handset also supports Dolby Atmos — designed to give audio a more 3D sound effect.
YouTube is awash with similar hands-on videos now appealing to all tastes. If you would prefer to see someone demonstrate the Nokia 6 accompanied by an organ soundtrack, for example, with a teapot and cakes in the background, go here.
