#Nokia #Nokia6 – Nokia 6 White Release Slated In China On April 11; Specs, Features & Prices Specified : The Nokia 6 White which was the first Nokia-branded handset that HMD Global unveiled is still Chinese market exclusive. As a matter of fact, the said smartphone will become available for pre-orders in China starting April 11.

According to Phone Arena, the Nokia 6 has been obtainable exclusively in black color. Nevertheless, that scenario seems to change for about a week from now since the Chinese retailer JD.com already publicized that the Nokia 6 White will be offered for purchase on April 11.

The price of Nokia 6 White is similar to its Black color version, but it is anticipated to be tagged at a slightly higher cost in other countries. It can be remembered that the Nokia 6 is priced around $220, but HMD publicized the global model will be sold for €229. Meanwhile, the Arte Black special edition variant will be up for grabs for €299.

Moreover, Droid Report has noted that the Nokia 6 was fist unveiled in January 2017 for the Chinese market.

Nevertheless, the 32 GB model does not sport NFC (near field communication) and Android Play.

Aside from that the Nokia 6 is engineered with Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 which performs well with navigation and basic chores. Conversely, it has a powerful battery that has surpassed anticipations. Also, this handset has a pair of stereo speakers which is somewhat interesting since it has a reasonable price range.

Unluckily, it is not yet confirmed if the new Nokia 6 White will be accessible in other countries as well. Moreover, the fans who wanted that variant on their hands are advised to wait for further announcements from HMD Global as it will surely deliver information about the availability of the handset soon.

The video focuses on the metal frame, hybrid dual-SIM slot, Carl Zeiss lens at the back, and also shows the home button just below the display.

Of course, as with all rumours and leaks, we advise readers to take the above information about the Nokia P1 with a pinch of salt, as HMD Global is yet to make any announcements about its new high-end smartphone and the credibility of the sources cannot be independently verified.

The Nokia P1 is expected to pack Snapdragon 835 SoC coupled with 6GB of RAM.

The Nokia 6 Could Be Released Outside China After All, But It Won't Be Cheap

#Nokia #Nokia6 – The Nokia 6 Could Be Released Outside China After All, But It Won’t Be Cheap : The Nokia 6 is HMD Global’s first Nokia smartphone for 2017. It may have had an uncertain fate during its pre-launch phase but as of now, it’s pretty clear that the first Nokiarelease of 2017 is a big success. Do note that within 24 hours from the start of Nokia 6’s pre-sale registration, 250,000 people have signed up. Soon enough, this number jumped to 1,000,000. When the product finally hit its first flash sale, it got sold out within a minute. Right now, the Nokia 6 already has around 1.4 million people who have shown interest in getting the phone.

With that, it’s already clear that people want this phone. The only problem is that it has only been launched in China. Apparently, HMD Global thinks that releasing in China and in China alone is the most strategic thing to do for their first release, which isn’t exactly a bad idea. However, people outside the said country have little means of getting the Nokia 6.

Nokia 6’s International Release

Fortunately now, there is already a chance for the said phone to be sold outside China. Apparently, third-party sellers from different countries are capable of doing so. But at this point in time, there aren’t a lot of sellers who have already listed the Nokia 6, although a giant Philippine online retailer has been spotted listing the highly-anticipated Nokia phone.

Note that the Nokia 6 that the said external retailer will be selling is in white variant and it is priced a bit higher than the original selling price. Phone Arena says that the original source of the Nokia 6 sells the Android smartphone for around $245 while the said Philippine retailer lists the phone with a price of around $370.

Nokia 6 Specs

Of course, the boost in price won’t be changing the fact that the Nokia 6 is still a midrange phone. Nevertheless, it is still probably worth spending for considering the fact that more than a million people have shown interest in the phone. It’s also not a bad deal even with the higher “import” price. The Nokia 6 is a good 5.5-inch smartphone that runs Android Nougat from the box. It is powered by a Snapdragon 430 processor and it comes with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage. There’s also a microSD slot, a 16 MP rear camera and an 8 MP front camera.

Nokia 6 Readies For Second Flash Sale

#Nokia #Nokia6 –  Nokia 6 Readies For Second Flash Sale : In the beginning of this month, the Nokia 6 was released through a flash sale that took only 60 seconds to wipe out its complete stock. Many didn’t get a chance to nab the mid-ranger but fret not as the second flash sale will be held on January 26.

The Nokia 6 will still be maintaining its price of the equivalent of $247. The first flash sale had garnered over one million registration but only 10,000 units were put up for sale. It’s expected that the company would retain the same amount of supply this time around too.

So, don’t get your hopes too high as it’s reported that 1.37 million registrations have been received for the second flash sale.

The Nokia 6 sports a 5.5-inch display while running on the Snapdragon 430. It packs on 4GB RAM along with 64GB internal storage and has a 16MP rear camera and an 8MP selfie snapper. This device comes with Android 7.0 Nougat right out-of-the-box.

Nokia Android Phone With Snapdragon 835 SoC in the Works, Company Hints

#Nokia #NokiaAndroid – Nokia Android Phone With Snapdragon 835 SoC in the Works, Company Hints  : HMD Global, the company that owns rights to the Nokia brand, has just dropped a hint that the company may soon reveal a new high-end flagship smartphone. While responding to some user queries on Chinese social network Weibo, Nokia’s account seemingly confirmed that the company is working on a Snapdragon 835-based smartphone. The company however added that this may take time which means Nokia’s smartphone featuring a Snapdragon 835 processor may come out late this year.

On a query (via NokiaPowerUser) about rumoured Snapdragon 835 smartphone, Nokia’s Weibo account replied, “Understood your mood, because the new high-end Snapdragon SoC has just released, please give us some time to prepare, when the time will be made public.” [Translated by Google Translate]

Nokia’s response on the Snapdragon 835 query clarifies that the company isn’t ruling out any possibility of a smartphone featuring the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC. Though, the company is very clear that this will take some time.

A Snapdragon 835-powered Nokia P1 smartphone was leaked recently and is expected to be the premium offering from Nokia. It is rumoured to start around $800 (roughly Rs. 54,500) and feature top-notch innards including 5.3-inch display with Gorilla Glass 5 with either full-HD or QHD screen resolution. The Nokia P1 is also expected to pack 6GB of RAM. The smartphone is rumoured to launch at MWC 2017.

The Weibo post also shows Nokia’s response for a query related to Intel Kaby Lake processor. The company replies, “For information on Nokia Windows devices, please follow up.” This contradicts information given by both Nokia and HMD Global thus far, as both companies had announced they would launch Android-based smartphones and tablets.

In the meanwhile, a 18.4-inch display tablet with Nokia branding has shown up on GFXBench benchmarking site. Spotted by Nokia Power User, the Android Nougat based tablet is listed to sport an 18.4-inch QHD (2560×1440 pixels) display, a Snapdragon 835 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 64GB inbuilt storage, a 12-megapixel rear camera, a 12-megapixel front camera, as well as 4G LTE (via a SIM card slot), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and NFC connectivity options.

Last week, Nokia received tremendous response from consumers in China in the first flash sale of the comeback smartphone, the Nokia 6, in China. The smartphone went out of stock in a minute in its first flash sale in China.

For the upcoming MWC 2017, Nokia has slotted an event at the event as well, where it is expected to announce few more Nokia-Android phones.

Nokia 6 Sold Out in Under a Minute

#Nokia #Nokia6 – Nokia 6 Sold Out in Under a Minute : A few days ago, we reported that more than 1 million people registered for the Nokia 6 flash sale, although that wasn’t a confirmation that so many units would be sold. The registration process merely revealed that consumers were interested in the new device.

Over 100,000 thousand people pre-ordered the device before the flash sale and the $9 registration fee would be deducted from the phone’s final price. Well, the flash sale came and went in under a minute.

Apparently, people took to JD.com in China and purchased the device which was out of stock in under 60 seconds, according to Anzhuo. Blink and you’d miss the opportunity of buying it. JD.com retailer didn’t actually disclose how many units were sold and another flash sale is expected to take place soon. Hopefully, Nokia has enough units to meet such high demand.

4GB of RAM and a 3,000mAh battery

With its $245 retail price, Nokia 6 is certainly an appealing phone, not to mention that it comes with a 3,000mAh battery and 4GB of RAM. In addition, Nokia 6 has a fingerprint sensor, a 3.5mm headphone jack and support for dual-SIM. Internal memory reaches 64GB with the option to expand to 256GB using a microSD card.

Its 16MP rear camera has dual-LED flash and PDAF features, while the front snapper has a capacity of 8MP. The phone runs Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box and an octa-1.4GHz Snapdragon chipset, coupled with Adreno 505 graphics processing units. Its display is 5.5 inches with 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution.

Sure, the Nokia 6 is an exciting phone, but even more exciting will be the unconfirmed Nokia P1 flagship. Rumors from the past few days say the phone might run Qualcomm’s latest processor, Snapdragon 835 and sport a design similar to Sharp’s Aquos Xx3. It could have a 53-inch IGZO display, 6GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of storage. Rear camera capacity could reach 24MP and the price might start at $800. However, such a rumored price tag only increases the appeal of the Nokia 6.

Rumor: Nokia P1 to be announced at MWC 2017 as a high-end, Snapdragon 835-based Android phone

#NokiaP1 #MWC2017 – Rumor: Nokia P1 to be announced at MWC 2017 as a high-end, Snapdragon 835-based Android phone : Remember the Nokia P1 Android phone that first caught our attention last summer? While Nokia hasn’t confirmed its existence, we’re now hearing that the handset could be officially announced next month at MWC 2017.

According to Russian publication Worket, the Nokia P1 is based on the Sharp Aquos Xx3 (pictured below), a smartphone released about half a year ago in Japan. However, the new Nokia handset should have enhanced specs, including a Snapdragon 835 processor (Qualcomm’s latest high-end chipset), 6 GB of RAM, and up to 256 GB of internal memory. Moreover, its 22.6 MP rear camera is expected to be Zeiss-certified, while the phone’s body should be dust- and water-resistant (IP57-certified).

Other expected features include a 5.3-inch display with Gorilla Glass Glass 5 (unknown pixel resolution, but it’s likely either 1080 x 1920, or 1440 x 2560), fingerprint scanner on the right side, and a 3500 mAh battery with quick charging capabilities.

The Nokia P1 should run Android 7 Nougat out of the box. It’s said that prices for it will start at about $800 for the 128 GB model, and $950 for the 256 GB one.

Mind you, the details above can’t be verified, so, for now, we have to file this in the rumor category.

HMD Global, the newly established company in charge of developing and marketing Nokia Android phones, already confirmed its presence at MWC 2017, alongside Nokia itself. Furthermore, Foxconn (which is in charge of manufacturing Nokia’s new handsets) bought Sharp last year, so the fact that the P1 could be based on a Sharp phone would make sense.

Until now, HMD and Nokia announced only one Android phone, the mid-range Nokia 6. But we know that more handsets will be unveiled this year – stay tuned to find out if the P1 is among them.
