Not sure if they have deserved to install SF OS on their devices! Ridiculous to pay a lot of money just to write "Nokia" on their stuff. Is this really a device continuing the tradition of the earlier Nokia? The camera doesn't even seem to have OIS!

@Stefanix: c'mon?! "deserved to install" - wtf!? I'm sorry to say... Not to mention, SFOS is not in such state it could cherry-pick vendors and let any of them go, who is willing to cooperate...

HMD is declared to continue Nokia heritage - in terms of design and quality. Time will judge their declaration.

on the other hand it could not be any worse than Jolla C/Aquafish... ;)

Now this article seems to be tangentially way off any kind of sensibility... Consider this quote;

"With the arrival of Nokia 6, consumers will see superior craftsmanship and design quality in action. It takes 55 minutes to machine a single Nokia 6 from a solid block of 6000 series aluminium. It then receives two separate anodising processes, taking over ten hours to complete, with each phone being polished no less than five times. The end result is an aluminium unibody with the highest level of visual and structural quality."

If milling a single chassis takes 55 minutes, they can make, what, just about 24 pieces a day per one milling machine. That kind of manufavturing cost is HUGE :)

On top add that each piece would then be soaked in anodising bath for 10 hours, even though you can bathe hundreds of 'em at the same time but stilll....

It's not possible to sall something like that for 1700 yuen (about 240 euros)

Since it's coming with Android I guess someone sooner or later will port SFOS for it. Too bad only it has physical buttons, as seen in the pictures at

@juiceme, it's likely an automated production line that does the work. Maybe one piece takes 55 minutes to go through it, but there are multiple pieces constantly under work, getting washed, treated, prepared, cooled, moved around etc.
