Nokia Launches New Smartphone

Finnish mobile company, HMD Global that reserves the rights to use Nokia’s name on mobile phones, introduced its new Smartphone on Sunday, targeted for Chinese users with a price of 1,699 yuan ($246).

The launch was carried with the first new Smartphone carrying the handset name since 2014 when Nokia Oyj decided to sell its goodwill to Microsoft. The new phone is called Nokia 6 and it functions on Google’s Android and is manufactured by Foxconn. This phone will be sold only in China through online retailer JD.com.

Here are some of the specifications of the new Nokia 6

  • 5 inch HD screen
  • LTE Smartphone that runs Nougat
  • 16mp rear and 8mb front camera
  • 4GB RAM, 64GB Storage
  • Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 430 processor

According to HMD, Nokia has no direct investment in the company. Nokia Oyj is adamant to focus on telecom network equipment business and technology patents.

HMD also launched a few basic phones last month. On Sunday while launching their new Smartphone, HMD announced that they are hoping to launch more new phones later this year.
