Nokia launches its first new Android smartphone under HMD Global. HMD Global owns the rights to use Nokia's brand on mobile phones as HMD Global has taken over Nokia. Nokia 6, runs on Google's Android platform and is manufactured by Foxconn. It will be sold exclusively in China through online process as informed by HMD. HMD said in its statement that the decision to launch its first Android smartphone into China is the way to meet different markets around the world.
Earlier, Nokia was the number one dominant cellphone maker but couldn’t make its impression in the world of smartphones, but further chose Microsoft's Windows operating system for its "Lumia" range. But couldn’t achieve much success. And finally, abandoned both businesses.
Soon, HMD took over the Nokia in December 2016, and now has full right to use the name of Nokia brand on all phones and tablets for the next decade. HMD and Nokia went under an agreement and accordingly HMD will pay Nokia royalties for the brand and patents. HMD is aiming to compete with other smartphone brands like Apple, Samsung, and dozens of other famous brands.
