6 Nokia Brings Design and Features Balanced to The Middle Range: as Well Compared with Its Rivals

b

The return of Nokia was one of the most anticipated events for the year that had barely begun, but what they didn’t expect was to see the first mobile that marks this stage as soon. The protagonist of this surprise announcement is the Nokia 6, a smartphone range medium with metallic design that, in time, will stay in China.

Nokia 6 mix media with aspects of mobile most complete range features. It is a strategy that we constantly see on smartphones from different manufacturers, we see how evolves to cope with some potential opponents.

A design premium enclosing lights and some shadow

The design is one of the most important it has acquired in recent years and HMD, the company responsible for the manufacture of new equipment Nokia, stands out so clearly in its official statement, in which even give details about its manufacturing process.

As you might expect, Nokia 6 follows the dictates of the premium trend betting on an aluminium unibody in matte black tone body. It is also aluminium series 6000, so we can expect an extra strength.

On the front has been placed a glass pane resistant with 2.5 d finishing that protects your screen in-cell 5.5 inch with FullHD resolution. HMD says that they have integrated a polarizer filter to minimize reflections, a detail that reminds us quite ancient screens Nokia ClearBlack used in equipment Lumia. Could not miss the fingerprint reader, located in the front start button.

A 8 megapixel camera is placed on the screen, but if we’re going to back ourselves with a 16-Megapixel mounted under a lens sensor f/2.0 also featuring focus by phase detection. HMD speaks of an exclusive interface with an automatic mode to detect the type of scene being photographed.

6-Nokia also pays special attention to the sound, thanks to its Double amplifier and Dolby Atmos get a sound loud and clear with deep bass, always according to HMD.

Here we have a fairly complete smartphone that has ballot papers to highlight in the saturated middle range. However, When we got to the processor we were something cold, and is that you it’s a 430 Snapdragon, a chip that works very well, but that gets a little short if we take into account that the terminal mounted 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB capacity.

We could not forget of the software, which will of course be Android, but also in its latest version 7.0 Android Nougat. The promotional video obscures too much of its interface, but it seems that Nokia has finally opted for a visual layer with customization.

Your price is around 230 euros to change, a figure reasonable makes an interesting option, but it should not be forgotten that there are many options within the range average that also offer an excellent price/quality.

Do you have something to do against the current average range?

Nokia 6 will remain in China, so, at the moment, the impact caused will be limited to its borders. However, nothing prevents us to cope with some mid-range equipment with a similar level.

Choose candidates of this comparison has not been easy and it is, as we said, your memory/processor configuration is not too common. In the table we see as models that integrate the chip Snapdragon 430 that do not reach the 4 GB of RAM, as it is the case of Lenovo K6 or BQ Aquaris U Plus Spanish, although there are some which resemble more like the Asus Zenfone 3 Max or the Wiko U Feel Prime.

Nokia is a leader in software with Android Nougat, but elsewhere in performance fails to highlight strong among this small sample. But If something stands out the new Nokia 6 it is precisely for being a Nokia.

Despite its fall in recent years, Nokia is still a leading brand in the mobile sector and that will help you stand out in the large current showcase. Nokia 6 is a complete and balanced, but we believe that to make his return a success you need to bet stronger.
