For many years the Nokia brand has been trying to recapture the market share it used to enjoy more than a decade ago. The mobile phone company couldn’t keep up with the fast-changing trends. It was totally decimated by companies like Motorola, HTC, and eventually Apple. Then it was bought by Microsoft and even the software giant couldn’t revive the moribund Nokia brand. After spending billions of dollars on the brand, Microsoft was forced to sell the Nokia assets for a meagre amount of $365 million to HMD Global. Now HMD Global is launching its first Android-powered Nokia smartphone.
The mobile phone will be called Nokia 6 and it will be powered by Android 7.0 Nougat. The smartphone isn’t yet being launched for the global market. It will be primarily selling to the Chinese mid-range smartphone market.
The smartphone will have a comparatively bigger screen of 5.5 inches with 1080 x 1920 pixels IPS LCD capacitive touch screen with 16 million colours. With Gorilla Glass 3, you will get a steady screen.
The Nokia Android smartphone will run on a Qualcomm MSM8937 Snapdragon 430 processor. Its CPU will be Octa-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 and its GPU will be Adreno 505.
It will be dual Sim so you will be able to use two Sim guards with it.
The smartphone’s internal memory will be 64GB and RAM will be 4GB. The microSD card slot will allow you to expand its memory to 256GB.
The 16-megapixel rear camera will have the usual features like face detection, autofocus, and dual LED flash. The facing camera will be 8 megapixels.
In terms of sensors you will have front-mounted fingerprint sensor, accelerometer, gyro meter, proximity sensor and a compass.
The battery will be non-removable lithium-ion 3000mAH battery.
