All We Have To Know About New Nokia Android Smartphone
It’s official New Nokia smartphones are on the way, and we've been given our intro to the first of those handsets, the Nokia 6.
HMD has created its first Nokia-branded handset. Regrettably, it WOn't be accessible outside of China, at least for the time being. Nevertheless, there's a good deal more to come.
In December, we heard official word that new Nokia handsets were in development, and that they'd run on Google’s Android OS. This truly is a huge deal because it’s been quite some time since we saw bona fide Nokia cellular telephones.
Nokia started making portable phones in 1987 and became the best-selling handset brand by 1998. But despite powerful beginnings, it wasn’t long before Nokia fell. In 2011, after a sales downturn brought on by competition from Android as well as the iPhone, Nokia signed its own death warrant by accepting to a pact with Microsoft send all its cellphones on the sickly Windows Phone OS. Nokia eventually cease making mobiles in 2014, selling its business to Microsoft and changing focus to cellphone network gear.
Microsoft sold mobiles under Nokia’s Lumia brand for some time, but that’s essentially been killed off now – cue the newest Surface Mobile, expected 2017. Microsoft’s possession of the Nokia brand license eventually expired this year, and Finnish business HMD Global took over the rights.
Now, the organization has established its first Nokia handset in China, the Nokia 6. It's set to actually go on sale in the country in early 2017, nonetheless, there's no word on whether we'll see the handset in other markets only yet.
Yet, there is a lot a lot more to come in terms of Nokia handsets from HMD Global. Regrettably, it’s still early days, so a great deal of the real hardware details are a puzzle.
1. THE PHONES ARE ARRIVING IN EARLY 2017 - The first significant chance to set up a mobile, CES 2017, has been and gone, and HMD didn't make any tremendous statements at the technology summit. However, it did establish its Nokia 6 handset with a location on the organization's website on the Sunday following CES, although the cellular telephone is just going to be found in China – at least, initially.
Nevertheless there is at least one more handset to come, and the next major chance is Mobile World Congress, a similar trade show that’s focused on handset technology. That kicks off in Barcelona on February 27 and will definitely be a hotbed of smartphone beginnings. There’s no motive a new Nokia smartphone couldn’t debut in the show. HMD is believed to be working on numerous handsets, so we could see a cellular telephone that WOn't be restricted to China start in February.
Instead, the new Nokia cellular telephones could get their very own dedicated beginning event, preventing trade shows totally.
2. BUT THE HANDSETS AREN’T BEING CONSTRUCTED BY NOKIA - It’s really critical that you just note that Nokia isn’t actually constructing the handsets.
After Microsoft’s possession of the Nokia brand allow expired, new Finland-based business HMD Global Oy secured rights to the brand. HMD has exclusive rights for the subsequent ten years, which implies no other business will soon possess the ability to create Nokia-branded handsets throughout that point.
On the application front, HMD has partnered up with Google so the brand new telephones will run on Android. And although HMD will design the hardware, the real handset will most likely be constructed by FIH Mobile Limited, a subsidiary company of Foxconn – one of the companies that assemble the iPhone.
3. NOKIA IS STILL RATHER MUCH INVOLVED - Just because Nokia isn’t constructing the mobiles doesn’t mean it’s not entailed. Nokia is going to truly have a representative on HMD’s board of members and definitely will establish operation and brand states – as per the licensing agreement. Nokia may also receive royalty payments for the usage of its own patents and surely will let HMD use its research and development properties.
4. MODEL NAME - What will the new mobile be called? Well, we already understand the first, China-only handset is the Nokia 6. But online rumors so far seem to indicate there’ll be at least two apparatus. One is the midrange Nokia 6, while the other – dubbed ‘P1’ – is anticipated to be a high end main apparatus.
5. SPECS, AND DESIGN - The recently-launched Nokia 6 comes with midrange hardware, including 4GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage alongside a microSD card slot, Snapdragon 430 CPU, a 16-megapixel main camera, and a 3,000 mAh battery.
Formerly, HMD CEO Arto Nummela dropped some traces in a recent interview together with the Economic Times of India, saying: “it'll soon be outstanding quality [and a] design that people will immediately understand as Nokia.”
Nummela comprised the mobile would be “extremely competitive as it pertains to the specifications and cost”, and that specs wouldn’t be a focus, saying: “We’re not going to be highlighting the megapixels or gigahertz.” That looks like the case with the Nokia 6, though, again, there are no actual means to comprehend what the higher-end cellular telephone will come with.
If we needed to take a figure, nevertheless, we’d anticipate a main smartphone introduction in the initial half of 2017 to be working Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 835 chipset. But that’s all we can imagine at, for now.
6. POWERED BY ANDROID - As we mentioned before, HMD Global Oy has teamed up with Google to begin the new smartphones with Android. That’s a welcome change from the old Windows Phone-powered Nokia handsets of yore.
HMD's first phone, the Nokia 6, comes with Android 7.0 Nougat, the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system. It rolled out this autumn, and will most likely appear on several of the handset's introduction in the very first half of 2017 – the remaining Nokia cell phone(s) featured.
It is amazingly improbable the higher-end mobile will arrive with anything less than the Nokia 6, so expect to see Nougat on the following cellular telephone from HMD Global.
