Nokia is back. The brand spanking new Nokia 6 took about one minute to sell out during its first flash sale held on Wednesday morning. The handset is an exclusive of JD.com, and was priced at the equivalent of $247 USD. Over 1 million registrations were listed for the flash sale. The exact number of units sold was not disclosed, and another similar offering is expected to take place shortly.
The Nokia 6 features a 5.5-inch display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The Snapdragon 430 chipset is under the hood, carrying an octa-core 1.4GHz CPU and the Adreno 505 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of native storage. A 16MP rear-facing camera comes with an f/2.0 aperture, and the 8MP front-facing camera shoots selfies and handles video chats. Keeping the lights on is a 3000mAh battery, and Android 7.0 is pre-installed.
We expect several more Nokia handsets to be introduced next month at MWC, including the Snapdragon 835 powered Nokia P1 flagship. As we explained back in July when we showed you a leaked press render of the phone, the Nokia P1 is based on the Sharp Aquos Xx3 with upgraded specs such as 6GB of RAM, up to 256GB of internal storage, the top-of-the-line Snapdragon chipset, dual speakers and a fingerprint scanner. The Nokia P1 will have a Gorilla Glass 5 protected 5.3-inch display with either 1080 x 1920 or 1440 x 2560 resolution. The model with 128GB of internal storage is expected to be priced at $800, while the variant sporting 256GB of native storage might be tagged at $950.
