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. Now, the band is finally all set to make a comeback at the upcoming Mobile World Congress and we could not wait for it. Nokia has already announced that the event will witness the launch of Nokia 6, its comeback device. However, the event is also expected to witness the launch of entire lineup including the Nokia 8. Here is a brief overview of the handset for those who might be interested in this device.
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, would be coming with impressive cameras. The rear panel of the handset comes with a 24 Megapixels snapper and on the front there is an 12 Megapixels unit.
Android 7.0 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 is said to be running on Android 7.0 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 C6 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 Wireless Charging: The only nick that we could find in the package of Nokia 8 is that the handset does not come with wireless charging. It is quite surprising considering that Nokia is the brand that pioneered the wireless charging technology.
