Nokia is making a comeback again in the smartphone market and this time around HMD Global, the Finnish company who holds licensing rights on Nokia's brand on mobile phones division, has officially unveiled Nokia 6, the first Android powered smartphone they will release that runs Google's Android 7.0 Nougat.

Looks like Nokia will be focusing on producing more Android smartphones soon rather than sticking on producing Windows Phone power handsets as the Nokia users will soon enjoy the wide variety of third party Android apps available at the Google Play Store.

The Nokia 6 will likely to play with the mid-range market as it will ship with a SnapDragon 430 system chip which is not that powerful unlike on high-end phones but rather to compete with other mid-range phones and try to capture the attention of consumers by making it afforable as well. The Nokia 6 will have other features such as 5.5-inch Full HD IPS display, 16MP rear camera, 8MP front camera, 4GB RAM, Dolby Atmos, Fingerprint scanner, 4G LTE, Android 7.0 Nougat and an aluminium unibody.
