The phone specifications are as follows:

  • 5.5 inch Full HD display
  • 4GB RAM
  • 64GB internal storage
  • 16MP back camera
  • Snapdragon 430 Processor
  • Adreno 505 GPU
  • 16MP back camera
  • 8.0MP front camera
  • Fingerprint scanner
  • Quick Charge 3.0
  • Android 7.0 Nougat

In a statement, HMD has said that the decision to launch its first Android smartphone into China is a reflection of their desire to meet the real world needs of consumers in different markets around the world.

It is interesting to see Nokia, once the global giant, come back into a market they helped revolutionise, but gradually found themselves unable to compete in.

And it will be exciting to see whether or not people will be ready to buy new devices because of the Nokia name, or whether HMD will be forced to come up with new and exciting features for their devices.
