Nokia launches its first ever Android Phone – The Nokia 6

Nokia launches its first ever Android Phone – The Nokia 6

After months of speculations and unconfirmed rumors, Nokia, the brand that we had loved and basically grew up with is finally back with a big bang. After securing the exclusive Nokia brand licensing rights in mobile phones in late 2016, HMD Global Oy (“HMD”) is proud to announce the launch of its Nokia 6 smartphone in China. The Nokia 6 marks the first step in HMD’s ambition to set a new standard in design, material quality and manufacturing innovation across every tier of its products by building on the hallmarks of a true Nokia phone experience. The device, which is designed explicitly with the needs of users in mind, combines quality and in-built durability to deliver a real-life premium smartphone experience at a price point for the highly aspirational Chinese consumer. The decision by HMD to launch its first Android smartphone into China is a reflection of the desire to meet the real world needs of consumers in different markets around the world. With over 552 million smartphone users in China in 2016, a figure that is predicted to grow to more than 593 million users by 2017, it is a strategically important market where premium design and quality is highly valued by consumers. With the arrival of Nokia 6, consumers will see superior craftsmanship and design quality in action. It takes 55 minutes to machine a single Nokia 6 from a solid block of 6000 series aluminium. It then receives two separate anodizing processes, taking over ten hours to complete, with each phone being polished no less than five times. The end result is an aluminium uni-body with the highest level of visual and structural quality. Delivering quality to the core, the Nokia 6 display has a bright hybrid in-cell 5.5” screen with full HD resolution and incredible colour reproduction wrapped in 2.5D Gorilla Glass. The display stack is laminated together with a polarizer layer enabling excellent sunlight readability and slim form. The build is completed with the latest generation Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 430 processor with X6 LTE modem designed for excellent battery life and superior graphics performance. The Nokia 6 has 4GB RAM and 64GB storage with which to run the latest version of Android Nougat and is packed with entertainment to bring to life the latest that Android has to offer. The dual amplifiers deliver a 6dB louder sound than a regular amp, giving higher voice, deeper bass and unmatched clarity. Dolby Atmos creates powerful, moving audio that seems to flow all around users. The Nokia 6 packs a 16MP phase detection auto focus rear camera for sharp detailed pictures, and an 8MP front camera. The f/2.0 aperture lenses and exclusive camera UI...

Nokia planning to begin post Microsoft life with the Nokia C1 Android powered Smartphone – [Rumors]

Nokia planning to begin post Microsoft life with the Nokia C1 Android powered Smartphone – [Rumors]

  It seems like Finnish cellular giants Nokia have found a new lease of life following their split from Microsoft and the company are now (from the look of things) heading in the right direction. Not so long ago we had heard rumors about the launching of Nokia’s first Android powered Tablet the N1 and now rumors are beginning to surface about the possible launch of the Nokia C1 which would happen to be Nokia’s first device to run on Android which apparently would be the real deal and not like the ones we got from Nokia’s earlier Android devices the Nokia X, XL and the X2 that even though were running on the core Android architecture, they never fully portrayed the actual feel of Google’s most used OS to date. Things are about to change with the C1 and even though Nokia’s current contract terms with Microsoft do not permit them to launch a new device until 2016, but apparently their manufacturing deal with Foxxcon (the same company that produces the Nokia N1) gives them a legal loophole to provide a smartphone with their name on it well before that so we might just happen to get a surprise at either the Mobile World Congress or the Consumer Electronic Show in 2015. As per the current rumors, the C1 is said to sport a 5-inch display with the resolution currently under the wraps, an Intel processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and an 8 MP rear shooter. As far as the device’s software goes, the C1 is expected to run on Google’s latest OS Android 5.0, Lollipop catered together with Nokia’s very own Z launcher. Will keep you guys posted on any further updates as soon as they come up. Till then hope you guys have a Merry Xmas and a Happy  New year. Cheers...
