HMD CEO Arto Nummela, who was once responsible for Nokia’s sales and product development, told the press last month that HMD aims to be one of the key competitive players in the smartphone business. Features of the phone include a 5.5-inch screen with full HD resolution.

Under the hood, the phone runs on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 430 processor and packs in 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage space. It also features a 16MP phase detection autofocus rear camera and an 8MP front camera.

The phone comes wrapped in 2.5D Gorilla Glass and is laminated with polarizer layer to enable sunlight readability. It also comes with an X6 LTE modem designed for excellent battery life and superior graphics performance. Nokia 6 runs Android Nougat OS out of the box.
