Nokia 6 Will Be Restocked When MWC 2017 Kicks Off – Phone Was Sold Out Earlier in a Flash
Despite featuring a Snapdragon 430 the Nokia 6 managed to sell out in under a minute on JD.com reportedly receiving over 1 million registrations for the mid-ranger wrapped around a premium body. Now, the handset is expected to get restocked next month, and interestingly enough, this move is going to take place when the company is expected to announce its Snapdragon 835-powered flagship.
Nokia 6 Might Garner More Sales With the Announcement of the Upcoming Flagship During MWC 2017
On JD.com, the Nokia 6 is currently out of stock (via Playfulldroid), but it states that the smartphone is going to be available to purchase starting February 26, which to remind you is when the MWC 2017 trade show will officially kick off. Nokia is actually expected to present at the trade show showcasing its high-end Snapdragon 835-powered flagship. A while back, the company inadvertently revealed the chipset that’s going to be running inside what’s expected to be called the P1, or in other words, the high-end offering.
To recap, the device is powered by Android and can be concluded as a mid-range device. It features a 5.5-inch diagonal 1080p display boasting a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset plus bolstered with 4 gigs of RAM. It features 64GB of on-board storage plus it comes with support for micro SD card expansion. In terms of battery, it packs a 3000mAh that should easily get you through the day. In terms of camera department, Nokia 6 has a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with F/2.0 aperture with 1080p video recording. The best part about the handset is that it comes with Android 7.0 Nougat pre-installed.
Snapdragon 430 isn’t the most powerful of chipsets around, with some people questioning the company’s decision on why it was present on the Nokia 6 in the first place. While it definitely will not be powerful enough to render Daydream content, for average use, Nokia believes that it will be more than sufficient.
