Photos of the Nokia 6 in Silver color have today been spotted on Chinese certification site, TENAA, providing the first picture of the upcoming Android smartphone from the Finnish tech company. For months, we’ve reported on Nokia’s comeback to the smartphone market, and things became a little clearer when it was announced the HMD Global would be launching Nokia smartphones in 2017. Later, news surfaced that that first Nokia smartphone would be running Android OS, and would be launched at Mobile World Congress 2017, to be held from February 21, in Barcelona.

Today, pictures of the upcoming Nokia 6 in Silver color have been spotted on TENAA, which indicates that the Android handset will sport more colors than just plain black. Nokia 6 features a 5.5-inch 1080p display with 4GB of memory, 64GB internal storage, and Snapdragon 430. It will be available for purchase only in China for the time being, at an estimated price of around $245.

Even though Nokia 6 remains a mid-range baby step back in the pond from Nokia, a high-end flagship device couldn’t be too far now. When the Finnish company has tested the waters thoroughly with this low-risk handset, it would certainly be looking to compete against the established players once again. But how soon that comes to be, only time will tell.
