This is our full Nokia 6 unboxing of the phone. Nokia 6 smartphone is part of HMD Global’s 2017 Android phone lineup and we have it with us for review. In this article, we will take you through the unboxing experience of the Nokia 6 and also inform you about what our initial impressions are. The Nokia 6 was the most expensive phone in the lineup but relatively, it was still competing in the budget range. Recently, HMD Global announced the new Nokia 8 which will be competing in the flagship market. Now that we have established what is expected form the Nokia 6, lets take a look at the unboxing experience.

HMD Global is reviving the Nokia name in the Android world. The Nokia 6 is currently the best smartphone you can get in the lineup, speaking in terms of hardware. Nokia 8 hasn’t starting shipping yet otherwise it would take over. Nokia 6 is running a very clean User Interface along with a very minimal design. Now we will move on to unbox the Nokia 6.

Nokia 6 Unboxing

The unboxing of Nokia 6 starts with a rather distinct wide box. The box carries the Nokia 6 photograph on the front and the specifications on the back. Our unit is the black model.

Sliding the top cover off, you can see the Nokia 6 placed on the right, covered in protective plastic. Our black unit has 32GB of internal storage and also 3GB of RAM which is quite great for this price point. Digging further in, we are greeted with some literature. Beneath that are the accessories. The phone comes with a standard charger, microUSB cable and a headset. As the phone carries a fixed back, there is SIM door key which you can use to eject the SIM tray on the phone.

The phone itself carries quite a premium feel with the metal rim around the phone. The design is also quite straight forward and looks good in the hand. We will be sharing a detailed review quite soon so keep an eye out for that.
