Once the king of the mobile phone market before the dawn of smartphones killed its business, Nokia is coming back with a brand new Android phone – the Nokia 6.
Unfortunately for most of Nokia’s fans, the phone will only be made available in the Chinese market for now.
HMD Global, a Finnish company that was founded by ex-Nokia staff to continue developing phones under the Nokia brand name. The phones will be manufactured by FID Mobile, a subsidiary of Taiwan’s Foxconn, the company that is known for producing Apple’s iPhone.
The phone will only be available in China through JD.com, starting from “early 2017”. HMD did clarify that Nokia 6 will be the first step for the company, and they will be more coming this year.
The company outlined that the phone was machined out of aluminium, and which featured a 2.5D Gorilla Glass screen, as well as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor with X6 LTE modem. The phone also comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage and runs an Android Nougat operating system. The phone will also feature a 16MP rear camera and an 8MP front-facing camera.
