Finally, wait is over, Nokia has finally made a roaring comeback into the smartphone industry with its ‘Nokia 6’, an Android-running smartphone.
The credit for the Nokia 6 launch goes to HMD Global, the Finnish company that owns the rights to use Nokia’s brand on mobile phones, announced on Sunday its first smartphone, solely for Chinese users with a price tag of 1,699 Yuan (approx INR 17,000).
The Nokia 6 features a unibody metal body along with fingerprint scanner. It is running Android 7.0 Nougat (operating system) and powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory.

As I’ve mentioned this earlier in this article, Nokia 6 will be available exclusively for Chinese consumers in China through JD.com. Though the exact date of availability is still not clear, but the company said N6 will be available in early 2017. The device is priced at 1,699 Yuan.
