It cannot be said enough that the hoopla surrounding the recovery of Nokia was enormous. And once HMD Global started its first Nokia-branded Android smartphone, Nokia 6, one anticipated the mobile would create plenty of buzzes. It had been reported on Friday that the Nokia 6 had received as much as 250, 000 registrations ahead of its first sale in only twenty-four hours. Now, that number has doubled to over 500, 000. The Nokia 6 is going to be sold using a flash sale on January 19 only on JD.com in China.
Going by the fast rate of enrollments, it’s safe to mention that Nokia fans continue to be out there and HMD Global has hit its first home run. In the time of writing this, 580, 000 was crossed by total registrations. Priced at CNY 1, 699, the Nokia 6 sports a 5.5-inch total-High Definition screen with a 2.5D Gorilla Glass on top. The smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 430 SoC coupled with 64GB of internal storage and 4GB of RAM.
The double Subscriber Identity Module Nokia 6 smartphone comes along with a 3000 mAh non-removable battery. On the camera front, the Nokia 6 includes a 16-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, phase recognition auto focus, and dual-tone flash, as well as an 8-megapixel front camera with f/2.0 aperture. The Nokia 6 was maybe a testing ground for HMD Global to see if China, or at least the world, was prepared for the yield of the Nokia brand. Seeing the enrollment numbers, HMD Global will undoubtedly be filled right now as it gets prepared to reveal even more Nokia Android mobiles at MWC 2017 on February 26.
