After obtaining the rights to release Nokia-branded devices, HMD Global have released the brand new Nokia 6. The new smartphone has a 5.5 inch HD screen a 16 megapixel rear camera and an 8 megapixel front facing camera. It runs Androids Nougat and has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor and is equipped with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
Now all of this sounds well and good but here is the bad news. In an announcement HMD held they stated that the new Nokia 6 will be launched in China and China only as the country is a “strategically important market” with millions of users.
“The decision by HMD to launch its first Android smartphone in 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, is a strategically important market where premium design and quality is highly valued by consumers.”
HMD have not announced an official release date for the new smartphone but it will start selling this year for 1,699 Chinese Yuan ($246/£200). Were also hoping HMD realise there is a real mass market they are currently missing out on and that they start to sell in America and Europe.
