As was being expected from HMD Global for a long time, the company has announced a new Nokia phone, Nokia 6.
HMD Global had secured the exclusive Nokia brand licensing rights for Mobile phones in late 2016. The launch of atleast 4-5 devices from brand Nokia is expected to happen during Q1 and Q2 of 2017 and we saw leaked pictures and front panel of a Nokia E1 recently. For now the Nokia 6 will be launched only in China for 1699 CNY (~$245 or INR 16699).

Nokia 6 boasts unibody 6000 series aluminium design. About its design, the press release says :

It takes 55 minutes to machine a single Nokia 6 from a solid block of 6000 series aluminium. It then receives two separate anodising processes, taking over ten hours to complete, with each phone being polished no less than five times.It takes 55 minutes to machine a single Nokia 6 from a solid block of 6000 series aluminium.

Nokia 6 comes with 5.5 inch Full HD IPS LCD with 2.5D Gorilla Glass on the top. What came as a surprise was the choice of processor inside the device. The phone ships with Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 430 processor that is somewhat on the lower end of the spectrum when it comes to performace. HMD Global could go with Snapdragon 625 which could have uppped the performance by a fair amount while simultaneously being power efficient. In terms of photography, Nokia 6 comes packed with 16MP phase detection auto focus rear facing camera and 8MP front camera.
