Earlier this year we saw HMD launch their first smartphone in Nokia 6 running the latest Android Nougat soon after which the phone gained close to 353,000 registrations within a day of its release and a million registrations for its first sale which took a mere 60 seconds to go out of stock.
Though the company announced that Nokia 6 would be made available globally post-MWC, not all places have witnessed the launch of HMD’s newest smartphone. A few of those regions would include Europe and Latin America which is expecting the unveiling of Nokia 6 anytime soon.
There’s a little twist in the launch as from what we have gotten to know from certain sources is that the European and Latin American variants of the Nokia 6 would feature lesser memory than what we saw in the variant that was released in China a month ago.
HMD had this to say about the revised specifications that would be made available soon
HMD looked at the whole package of the Nokia 6 and combined that with global consumer feedback to enhance features that will impact the everyday use, such as adding autofocus to the front facing camera.
We know the tech spec race isn’t for everyone, the reality being that most consumers will notice very little difference in performance between 3GB and 4GB RAM, but enhancements elsewhere in the device have a huge impact on the day-to-day experience of using the phone.
What does this mean? Nokia 6 in the mentioned regions would come with 3GB of RAM, that’s a gigabyte of RAM reduced and 32GB of onboard storage, which is half of what was previously available in the original variant of the Nokia 6. This makes it clear that the company is focused on serving the lower portions of the market and not competing for a place in the bigger leagues and that speaks of a solid foundation.
