Nokia's Comeback Phone is Android-Backed

Nokia has revealed the Nokia 6, its first ever Android-supported smartphone.

(CCM) — The world's first Android-powered smartphone to carry the Nokia name has been rolled out by HMD Global, the self-described "home of Nokia phones." According to reports by Forbes, the phone will come pre-packaged with Nougat, Google's most recent Android operating system, which offers the device compatibility with an ever-expanding range of third-party applications available for the platform. It will feature 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage in addition to microSD support, a 16 megapixel main camera, and a 3,000 mAh battery. Its body is made primarily of of aluminum and includes a 1920x1080 HD screen. The handset is also powered by a SnapDragon 430 system-on-chip.

HMD has made the interesting choice to launch the Nokia 6 in China, which Forbes attributes to the fact that reestablishing Nokia's brand will be easier to do in the country's growing market. The Nokia 6 will retail for 1699 Yuan (roughly $246).The handset will go on sale in early 2017 and will be available exclusively through Chinese retailer JD.com.
