Nokia is back and yet it remains out of reach - JD.com is taking pre-orders for the Nokia 6, but only in China. Still, more than 400,000 people have registered interest, whether it’s nostalgia or something else, the 6 looks like a bestseller.
If the Nokia 6 goes international, would you join these hundreds of thousands of people? If you answered “yes,” you must not have looked closely at the chipset - Snapdragon 430 is slow in every aspect (a shame to waste 4GB of RAM and a 16MP camera on it).
There are another 5-6 other Nokia phones incoming this year, perhaps it's best to wait?
Because the 16MP camera is not what the voters in a previous weekly poll wanted either. So, where’s the PureView magic? Way back in 2013 the mid-range Nokia Lumia 720 boasted a brighter aperture (f/1.9) for its Carl Zeiss-branded lens. More recently, the Lumia 640 XL had Zeiss lens too, a €100 or so phone. Even if it’s just a brand name people had expectations.
Yes, admittedly much of this is driven by nostalgia. Before you point it out, we do know this is HMD Global, but this is as close to “True Nokia” as we’ll get - it’s led by many ex-Nokians and the headquarters are literally down the street from Nokia HQ. Still, those ex-Nokians were there when things started to go south... perhaps it's time to step off the hype train?
We just catched a hater. Some haters means Nokia is making a good comeback, BRILLIANT MOVE from Nokia
