This is something many have been waiting for, Nokia at long last are launching its first ever Android smartphone.

The legendary brand has announced that their new flagship Android device will be called the Nokia 6, it will be 7.0 Nougat based with a 5.5-inch aluminium unibody, it will be rounded up with a “2.5D” contoured glass front.

Underneath all of it, it’s filled with a 1080p display, a mid-tier Snapdragon 430 processor with 4GB RAM and 64 of on-board storage, as well as dual amplifiers and Dolby Atmos for louder output than standard amps. The handset will also come with a 16-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel snapper in the front.

Some would probably argue that this isn’t cutting-edge hardware, however, Nokia have promised that the device will offer exceptional battery life and graphics performance.

The handset will cost around £200 and sadly will only be available in China for the time being. Although, HMD Global (the Finnish company that bought Nokia) have hinted that its smartphone business would eventually make it out of China and said it would be announcing further products in the first half of 2017.

As we all know, Nokia was once the world’s best-known mobile phone company but sadly its fortunes have slid since the debut of the iPhone in 2007. This new flagship handset is their attempt to get back amongst the mobile elite and even though we won’t know how good the new Nokia 6 is until it’s available in the UK, we’re very much looking forward to getting our hands on it.
