The “Nokia 6” is HMD’s first Android-powered Nokia phone


Nokia is getting back into the smartphone business. A company called "HMD," which includes a number of old-guard Nokia employees, has emerged to resurrect the brand from the ashes of the Microsoft acquisition. Recently the company announced its new phone: the "Nokia 6." It runs "the latest version" of Android Nougat (so 7.1.1?), it's milled out of a single block of aluminum, and it has a 5.5-inch "HD" screen. The bad news is that is has a Snapdragon 430 SoC and is exclusive to China. But hey, this looks like a good first step and serves as a peek into the future of the new Nokia.

According to the press release, the Nokia 6 is launching in "early 2017" for 1,699 CNY ($245, £200). It has a Snapdragon 430 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a 16MP rear camera, and an 8MP front camera. There is lots of talk about the aluminum unibody design, which HMD promises is part of the "Nokia phone hallmarks of quality, superior craftsmanship and relentless focus on the consumer experience."
