Seems like Nokia’s comeback in the smartphone industry is on track with the company’s expectations. After receiving over 250,000 registrations in the first 24 hours earlier this week, the first sale of the Nokia 6 saw the device get sold out in a minute. The first flash sale took place in China via e-commerce website JD.com. However, it is still unknown as to how many units of the device went up for sale yesterday.
Nokia 6 is priced at CNY 1,699 (approx. Rs 16,700) and is expected to hit the Indian shores soon. On the other hand, HMD Global is also expected to launch some more Nokia smartphones, of which one of them could be the recently rumoured Nokia 8.
Talking about the specifications, Nokia 6 comes with a 5.5-inch full HD with a screen resolution of 1920×1080 pixels and 2.5d curved display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection.The company claims that it has taken 55 minutes to machine a single Nokia 6 from a solid block of 6000 series aluminium and received two separate anodising processes.

The phone is backed by 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage, which can be further expanded up to 128GB via microSD. It also houses a fingerprint scanner, which is embedded in its home button.
