HMD unveils first Android One smartphones under Nokia brand

HMD Global also unveiled its first-ever Android One smartphone: the Nokia 6. The price should be somewhere around $300, making it highly competitive as a mid-tier device. Nokia has now announced the global variant of the smartphone which has one crucial difference as compared to its Chinese counterpart - it runs on Android One instead of Nokia's own Android skin. The handset will reportedly have a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, located just below the camera module, at least according to a leaked sketch. The device measures 133.6 x 67.78 x 9.5 mm and weighs 131 grams.

Nokia's new groove is pure Android hardware, with only a minor adjustment to the camera app. The smartphone is built of single piece of dual diamond polished stainless steel, which the company claims is 2.5 times stronger than 6000 series aluminium. The new Nokia 6 will ship in early April for 279 Euro.

Inside, you're looking at 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, but all that will cost you dearly: 749 Euros, which should translate to around $900 when the phone is released in April. The camera department is manned by a dual camera lens sourced from Zeiss. On the front is an 8MP selfie camera with f/2.o aperture. The device will run on latest Android 8.0 Oreo and is also part of Android One program. This device also has a 3260mAh battery inside with Qi-standard wireless charging compliance.
