HMD Global has finally unveiled its first smartphone for 2017, the Nokia 6. A quick fun fact regarding this smartphone: though it is reported to have been developed by Microsoft, it runs on Android Nougat. It is even branded as the "first Nokia smartphone powered by Android."
Price And Release Date
The price of the Nokia 6 is reported to be 1699 Yuan ($246). For its release date, HMD Global stated that it will be released earlier this year in China through JD.com. In case you're wondering if this handset will reach the shores of the U.S., the company did not mention at all.
Based on the leaked video of the Nokia 6, its front design features Home button that has a Fingerprint Scanner (hopefully customizable just like the recent introduced and released 2017 mid-range smartphones that were released just this year) and the name Nokia engraved at the top left of the screen next to the front camera. At the back, it has a rear camera with some kind of a sensor just below it and also the name Nokia printed. And for its overall design, it flaunts a stylish aluminum build which could possibly mean it can be prone to scratches and a lot of fingerprints.
