Ever since the iPhone and Android devices entered the smartphone world,
they changed the industry entirely. Nokia made the comeback last year,
and for the first few months it didn’t looked promising. However the
earnings gradually picked up and it ranked the company much higher than
Why Nokia is Coming Back Now?
Nokia partnered up with HMD Global, which is the sole license of Nokia
brand manufacturing both the feature phones and the smartphones. Nokia 6
was the first Android based released in China in early 2017. HMD is
solely operated by Nokia veterans and is based in Finland. A fairly
unique approach is taken by HMD, the Google’s Android Nougat OS in its
purest form is offered to these Nokia phones. Meaning that there will be
no UI customization, no bundled third party and regular security
updates. HMD believes that Nokia 6, Nokia 5, and Nokia 3 will stand out
from the competition with solid hardware design, Android in its purest
form, and no gimmicky features.
The Nokia 6 is the biggest launch of all three handsets. It features
5.5-inch display, 3BG of RAM, 32GB of internal storage. It is powered by
Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor and Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The front
facing camera is 8MP with a wide angle lens and auto-focus mode. The
back camera is 16MP with dual tone flash. The camera quality is not
amazing but it is what you would expect from a budget friendly phone.
The Nokia 6 is manufactured from a solid aluminum black with diamond cut
edges. The sharp edges meet the matte aluminum body giving it a very
industrial metallic finish. A limited edition glossy version is also
available with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and it is going to be a
little pricey compared to the matte aluminum body.
The second launch of Nokia-Android phone, which is quite impressive. It
features 5.2-inch display, powered by 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 430 processor. Nokia 5 also has aluminum body with
curved edges that makes the display bleeding in to the metal case. This
can remind you of an iPhone. With a 13MP back camera and a wide angle
8MP front camera. This is also powered by Nokia Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
Nokia 3 will be third and the final Nokia-Android released, it is the
most of all three. It features a 5-inch display paired with 2GB of Ram,
16GB of internal storage, and an MTK 6737 quad core processor. It has
polycarbonate back with an aluminum frame. It is the pure version of
Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The Nokia 3 features an 8MP front and back camera.
It is expected that Nokia will release its premium smartphone with which
they are taking their time to live up to the respected Nokia brand. So
far HMD and Nokia have taken a good start to cover the popular part in
the mobile market.
