Nokia 6 First Impressions – The first real Nokia Android smartphone

nokia6-box-hmd-china

While I was in the US recently , I had a chance to briefly use the Nokia 6 which is the first ever smartphone from HMD Global which calls itself the home of Nokia phones. The company is launching the Nokia 6 in China this month and expected to launch more devices at Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona next month. Nokia was once a house hold name in India and many other markets. Sadly the previous Nokia management never managed to release an Android smartphone as the company embraced Windows Phone from Microsoft. Post that Nokia was acquired by Microsoft and the company continued to release Lumia smartphones which failed to gain main stream adoption in a smartphone market dominated by Android phone makers and Apple’s iPhone. All that is going to change with HMD Global taking over the Nokia brand from Microsoft last year and the new entity is aiming to bring to the market what was once not possible under the previous entity.
