If you’re wondering what happened to Nokia these past few years, then, here they are again. After their Lumia phone releases, the brand is now back with a vengeance. They just released a brand new model – Nokia 6, Nokia’s first ever smartphone powered by Android.
The Nokia 6 was unveiled by the new company that now owns the right to the Nokia brand, HMD Global. The release was announced on the company’s website, ahead of the rumored debut. Surprisingly, the company didn’t make a huge announcement of the release and it’s probably because of the limited market.
This latest Nokia phone runs Android 7.0 Nougat. It sports a 5.5 inch full HD display and wrapped in 2.5 D Gorilla glass. Its unibody is built using 6000 series aluminum. This model also boasts an embedded fingerprint scanner on its home button.
This phone packs a 16-megapixel rear camera with autofocus and dual-tone flash. The front camera is 8 megapixel for awesome selfies.
For louder sound, the smartphone has Dolby Atmos dual amplifiers.
Though this may sound like an interesting model, Nokia 6 is only available to the Chinese market. Since Nokia’s brand is still being re-established, launching the phone in China first will help them determine future steps of action. The Chinese market is still going through its growth phase and it’s going to be easier for them to rebrand than it would be in saturated citadels where Nokia once ruled.
