    Stock Android?

    • LamiaLove

      Hope not.

    • Rony

      Hope yes.

    • Brancaleone

      Hope yes.

    • Philosoraptor

      Not likely. I’ve been using their Z Launcher for over a year now. I’d be surprised if they didn’t use the Z Launcher as a basis for their Android ROM.

    If they were in Canada, I’d give them a shot only for the fact that they actually put the bottom speaker on the right side of the phone where my pinky won’t block it when holding it one handed.

    Seriously, why hasn’t anyone else figured this out?! Even my Pixel has the speaker on the left, where my pinky is when cradling the phone. Drives me bonkers. I miss my Nexus 6P for only this reason (front firing speakers)

    • Jimmy Roche

      Maybe you’re holding it wrong (Part 2)

    • Anaron

      It’s because the vast majority of people that use phones don’t cradle it with their pinkies. It’s either the speaker on the left or the mic. I’d choose the speaker 9 times out of 10.

  • Acco

    Oh. Nokia licensed their brandname for smartphones. Like Blackberry did. So it’s not actually Nokia design at work. :/

    Pity. 🙁

    FWIW, the phone actually sounds half decent for a midranger, all things considered.

    • Haythem

      Only that, unlike BB, the folks running HMD are all ex Nokia executives. Also, I believe Nokia has a 20% stake in HMD.

    • LamiaLove

      The design and build process are more or less under Nokia’s supervision as far as I know.

  • deltatux

    That announcement was so underwhelming. Only the Snapdragon 430 & it’s China only? Thought they would make at least a super-mid device and make it globally.

    • LamiaLove

      Not for me. For me the design is what matters the most. Nokia is on the right track with the physical design except for the camera hump. The UI has horrible round icons though.

    • Vito R.

      Horrible UI and low end specs.

      It’s cheap though, might make an ok backup phone. Although the software experience is probably worse than it looks. Just make it a clean version of Android – why do all these non-software companies think they can do better than Google?

    • Anaron

      I wouldn’t even buy it as a backup phone. $249 USD is $329 CAD. That’s pretty pricey for something I’d only use if my daily driver breaks.

    • Vito R.

      You’re right – I didn’t take $US into account.

      The $150 LeEco 3 is better in all technical aspects save for the RAM. The Moto G4 is also a very solid, good phone from an OEM with a good pedigree.

      By “backup phone” I mean a work phone, something I’d use occasionally and not something that just sits in a drawer.

    • LamiaLove

      Because even Google has a custom launcher on the Pixel. If I wanted some noname stock android, I would get a noname phone.

    • Vito R.

      Yeah, except Google knows what they’re doing.

    • LamiaLove

      Now you’re just being a little hater.

    • Vito R.

      Not at all. These people have no history – except their failed history at Nokia. The hardware was always good – it was the software that was terrible. No Android OEM has done a better all around job with software than Google – it would be very unlikely if that wasn’t the case the this new phone.

    “first half od 2017″…..should have spell checked first before posting…

  • Hamid

    looks like my first lumia, the 620 from the back. i’d be excited if it had flagship specs or at least a killer camera (which usually requires at least snapdragon 625 anyway).

  • MoYeung

    Nokia 6 will debut exclusively through JD dot com in early 2017 in China. Competitively priced for the aspirational smartphone user, the Nokia 6 is 1699 CNY at JD dot com.

    $1699 Chinese Yuan Renminbi is cheap, low-end range price.

    Nokia/HMD Global will be at the Mobile World Congress 2017. I guess we see the android devices there for the western market.
    But atleast they have started now.

    Welcome back Nokia.

    Is it water resistant?

  • Cowpoke

    This welcome device will spell trouble for some niche manufacturers who have employed TCL to build their devices and seem strangely reluctant to spend any of their reputed cash mountain on marketing.

  • David

    Is that an on screen finger print sensor?

    • Jimmy Roche

      No, there’s a home button built in

    • David

      OK thanks for clarifying. The video quality isn’t that good and I was half asleep lol

    I remember back in the day all my cellphones where NOKIA. I would love to start supporting them again. My S7 rocks but would like to support the underdog.

    • Ipse

      This is Nokia only in brand name…nothing to do with the Finnish company. Don’t be nostalgic 🙂

    • Trotsky

      Except that it’s owned by HMD Global, a Finnish company made up of veteran Nokia staff. So it kinda has a lot to do with it.

    • Alex

      BOOM!

    • Ulfredsson The Vanquisher

      HEY-OOOO

    • Ipse

      You do realize that manufacturing and design is done solely in China and even this particular “smart” phone (SD 430?) is only for the Chinese market, right? Stop thinking that because a couple of executives ( otherwise without jobs) jumped to HMD it means this is the Nokia of the old.

    • Danny Account

      thanks for pointing out what i already know troll.

    • Ipse

      Grow up.

    This Arto Nummela guy sounds like Jonny Ive.

  • BD

    coming from the Nexus line of phones.. I’d buy one of these. I’ve always liked Nokia phones

    • kenvin100

      Price will be everything for this phone IMO. I’m also excited about the Nokia brand returning but it won’t be successful if pricing is poor. Just ask the poor folks behind the DTEK BB series. Great phones-but lame pricing.

  • FuZZeRs

    Given that the processor is pretty low end (even though this is supposed to be a cheap phone) they really need to get the software experience right to compete in that price range.

  • Ulfredsson The Vanquisher

    Yes but, most importantly, will it break the floor if you drop it like our old Nokia’s?

    • Cowpoke Sal

      I am thinking it will be breaking good the floor, yes?

    • Ulfredsson The Vanquisher

      Yes, floor will be the broken good!

  • BD

    I’ll only rock durable, IP65+ phones with state of the art guts with a clean look and feel from here on out.

    With that processor it might be price right, they just need to the user experience right the first time, they might not get a second chance.
