Nokia’s comeback phone, the all new Nokia 6, has still not been launched in India but is already available on e-commerce platform eBay.in via a third party retailer. The hugely popular smartphone is available on eBay at a price of Rs 32,440. But should you buy the phone? Or should you wait? At least you should check out all the facts about the phone before ordering the Nokia 6 smartphone. The device is an imported one and the listing on eBay mentions that it will be available after 25 days in India. According to the seller, the smartphone is original and says, “PLEASE DO NOT BUY IF YOU CANNOT WAIT.”
The Nokia 6 smartphone is available on eBay with a price tag of Rs 32,440. The device was launched in China in January, at a price of CNY 1699, which comes around Rs 16,500. This is almost half the price. So, if you do not want to spend double the amount of what phone costs, think twice before ordering a phone. Nokia 6 has a really low chance to launch officially in India, as HMD Global which now owns the Nokia brand had said that the phone would be available only for China through the website JD.com. The phone has been very popular since its launch in China, where it went out of stock in a minute. But you might as well wait for other Nokia phones.
Nokia is planning to launch some new smartphones at the Mobile World Congress 2017. The global tech giant will likely launch the global variant of the smartphone apart from the Nokia 3 and Nokia 5, at the MWC later in February. Nokia will also launch the popular 3310 device which was once one of the most popular feature phones in the world.
When it comes to specifications the Nokia 6 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage (expandable up to 128GB via microSD card). It has dual amplifier speaker with Dolby Atmos technology for sound output. Nokia 6 features a 16MP PDAF rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and an 8MP front camera.
It is backed by a powerful 3,000 mAh battery.The home button in Nokia 6 doubles up as a fingerprint sensor. It is a 4G-enabled smartphone that supports Bluetooth v4.1, Wi-Fi, GPS and USB-OTG. According to a press statement by HMD Global, more Android smartphones will be unveiled in H1 2017.
Once the world’s dominant cellphone maker, Nokia missed out on the transformation of the mobile market to smartphones. Thereafter, Nokia chose Microsoft’s Windows operating system for its “Lumia” range. After the Nokia-Microsoft deal in 2014, Microsoft continued to sell cheaper basic phones under Nokia’s name and Lumia smartphones by its own name but abandoned both the businesses last year. Meanwhile, HMD last month took over the Nokia feature phone business and bagged the deal of Nokia brand (phones and tablets) for the next decade.
