The first Nokia Android phone have hit chinese market, The Nokia C6 will be running android operating sstem.The first Nokia smartphone in three years has been unveiled, The Nokia 6, which will run Android and cost 1,699 yuan (£200), is the first smartphone bearing the Nokia brand under a new licensing deal with manufacturer HMD Global.
Nokia 6, the first of an upcoming range of Nokia-branded Android phones, has been officially announced by HMD Global, the company that now owns the rights to the Nokia brand. The new Nokia 6 is a mid-range smartphone that boasts of design and the Nokia brand name, but may end up falling short in sales because of specifications that make the new Nokia Android phone appear a laggard.
The Nokia 6 launch was announced without any fanfare on HMD Global website via a release on Sunday, beating the rumoured MWC debut by a couple of months. However, fans of the Nokia brand will have to wait a little longer to get their hands on a Nokia Android phone, as the new Nokia 6 smartphone is exclusive to China.
Nokia 6 smartphone runs Android 7.0 Nougat and it sports a 5.5-inch full-HD display wrapped in 2.5D Gorilla Glass. The smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC alongside 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The Nokia 6 is a dual SIM smartphone that is backed by a 3000mAh non-removable battery.
The unibody Nokia 6 is built using 6000 series aluminium and its home button has an embedded fingerprint scanner. It packs a f/2.0 16-megapixel rear camera with phase detection auto focus and dual-tone flash, as well as an 8-megapixel f/2.0 front camera for selfies. The new Nokia 6 smartphone also includes Dolby Atmos tech and ‘dual amplifiers’ for louder sound.
Nokia was fairly unique in not adopting Android in the smartphone’s earlier years. It first used Symbian, its own smartphone operating system, before signing a deal with Microsoft in 2011 to run its Window Phone software.
The American company later cut thousands of jobs and Finnish politicians accused it of broken promises. Nokia is not making any investment in HMD, and is concentrating on its own telecoms business, but will get royalties from handsets that are sold.
