#Nokia 6 codename was Plate, because it’s built around a metal plate

One of the most surprising features of the new Nokia 6 is definitely its build quality. HMD managed to create a flagship-like device in terms of build quality at a €229 price point. Thanks to Zack from JerryRigEverything, we found out that HMD used a clever engineered metal plate between the screen and internals, thus increasing the overall construction, durability and making the device easy to repair. Today, HMD’s Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas shared via Twitter that Nokia 6’s codename was in fact “Plate”, because of the metal plate which holds the construction of the device.


The plate is connected with the housing via 19 screws, and together with the rest of the components form an solid phone, whose build quality test can be seen in the video below. You can find Zack’s repair video and pictures here.


Another interesting photo Juho shared is about the manufacturing process of the new 3310. In fact, it’s a photo of a tool used to manufacture the original 3310, but Juho revealed that the same workshop is creating tools for manufacturing the new 3310. Check it down below.


What do you think, if the Nokia 6 was codenamed Plate, what’s the codename for the 3, 5 or 3310? Tell us down below. 🙂
