This year 2017 was a great comeback for Nokia phones. At the start of the year Nokia returned to Mobile World Congress with two new phones, the Nokia 6 and the Nokia 6 Arte Black Limited Edition.
The resurrection comes not from Microsoft, which absorbed the original Nokia’s phone business in 2014, but from HMD, a new company formed of former Nokia employees that licensed the Nokia name. Also announced were two mid range Android phones, the Nokia 5 and 3, and the nostalgic rebooted version of the classic Nokia 3310 which you can have now in hands.
Nokia 6 continues in the footsteps of its design heritage: it has a striking clean look, a smooth metal exterior and precise details – and five colors to choose from, including a limited edition glossy Arte Black.
The body of Nokia 6 is crafted with integrity from seamless precision-milled aluminium, taking 55 minutes to machine from a solid block of metal. Together with the sculpted Corning® Gorilla® Glass, it’s made with materials that can take on life as you know it.
The 5.5” full-HD display and wide color reproduction make it easy to enjoy your entertainment, even while out and about in bright daylight as the wide viewing angle makes it easy to watch videos with friends.
With Nokia 6’s dual speakers and dedicated amplifier, you get loud sound, deep bass and great clarity that comes with certified Dolby Atmos® sound.
Snapping photos of your favorite moments is easy with the camera app on Nokia 6. There’s a 16 MP phase detection autofocus camera on the back, and an 8 MP camera on the front. Plus the dual-tone flash on the main camera helps you take natural-looking photos, even in low light.
Nokia 6 comes with Android Nougat, the full spread of Google Services and no unnecessary extras. You get an experience that’s focused and clutter-free too.
