Nokia 6 is the first phone after HMD Global bought Nokia brand name. Once upon a time Nokia was the brand leader in Mobile phone industry. But the good time is lost. Especially after the release of Android OS, Nokia failed to realize the need of the modern era. As a result, they lag behind. Microsoft bought Nokia and Released Android Phone in Nokia X series. Nokia X2 was the best among them. I am still using my Nokia X2. Nokia used to be one of the world’s biggest mobile phone manufacturers but it fell behind with the advent of iPhone and Android smartphones. In 2014, Nokia’s Devices and Services division were sold to Microsoft. In 2016, Finnish company HMD Global bought a part of Microsoft’s feature phone business and has a licensing agreement that allows it to make smartphones under the Nokia brand. This Nokia Android phone will officially be available only in China.
It’s still not quite Nokia as we know it since Finnish brand HMD Global currently owns the rights to develop, build and sell Nokia-branded phones – although it does so with Nokia’s input.
