After taking its loyalists for a ride, for a while now, the Finnish handset maker Nokia has finally announced its comeback device in the market officially. However, the comeback handset is not the speculated C1 or P or edge. This new device has been name cryptically as Nokia 6 by the brand and from the looks of it, appear to be a mid-range or budget smartphone. The brand has now officially announced the device and it is as impressive as we perceived it to be. Here is a brief overview of the handset for those who are waiting for it.
Built-in intelligent power amplifier chip and dual speaker system: Nokia at its peak was known as one of the pioneers when it came to the mobile music with music editions of handsets specially launched by the brand. Using the specialisation in music technology, the returning brand has equipped the new device with Built-in intelligent power amplifier chip along with dual speakers on top and bottom for enhanced audio output.
Powerful cameras: Nokia was also known to be one of the leading brand in the handset market in terms of camera smartphones. It was kind of a given that new handset from the brand, marking its comeback, comes with impressive cameras. The rear panel of the handset comes with a 16 Megapixels snapper and on the front there is an 8 Megapixels unit.
Android 7.1.1 Nougat: There are not many handsets in the Indian handset market that comes with the latest Android update pre-installed in it. However, Nokia seems to be having plans for a grand comeback as its debut device comes running on Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box. However, there is no confirmation at the moment as to whether there will be any custom skin or not.
Aluminum alloy and Corning Gorilla Glass: Nokia is a brand known for manufacturing durable and good looking devices. Therefore it is but natural that Nokia 6 boasts of aluminum alloy chassis and Corning Gorilla Glass front panel. The handset is bound to feel premium and durable when it comes to the build quality.
No VoLTE: However, there is only one chink in the armor of the handset, which is the missing support for VoLTE. At a time, when people are rushing for the Reliance JIO SIM and want device with VoLTE support, missing out on the same seem to be a deal breaker for many.
