fter missing the action for the better part of the decade, Nokia is upping its game as it reenters the market this year. After releasing its first phone in years, rumours are rife that Nokia will be coming out with its own AI-based virtual assistant dubbed 'Viki' to take on the likes of Siri, Cortana and Google Assistant. The field of Artificial Intelligence is already buzzing with activity since last year and Nokia is leaving no stone unturned to get back into the competition big time. The voice-activated assistant was first spotted by GSMInfo when the Finnish company filed a trademark for the name 'Viki'. The trademark described Viki as a 'software for the creation and monitoring of mobile and web assistants working with digital knowledge and combining all data sources into a single chat and voice-based interface." With a description like that, it is no doubt Nokia's very own digital butler that might be integrated into the myriad of upcoming phones being manufactured by HMD. If 'Viki' is what it seems to be, Nokia would soon be taking on other digital assistants like Cortana, Siri, Google Assistant and even Amazon's Alexa that will make its smartphone debut with the Huawei Mate 9 in the US later this year. And it's not just Nokia that is putting in resources to build its own personal assistant. Korean giant Samsung too is reportedly working on its own AI assistant named 'Bixby'. It is apparently being made by Viv Labs, the same company that created Siri and was later acquired by Samsung. According to the leaks, HMD may launch around six to seven phones under the Nokia moniker and to have a personalised digital assistant will be one way to set itself apart from the competition, as Google Assistant is not expected to be rolled out to other Android phones any time soon. The news comes as Nokia announced its first official smartphone in years, called Nokia 6. It will Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box and will be powered by a Snapdragon 430 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. There will be a 5.5-inch full HD display on top. Also, there will be a 16-megapixel camera on the rear and an 8-megapixel snapper on the front. The phone will be powered by a 3,000mAh battery and will support Dolby Atmos audio. However, HMD will only sell the phone in China for now for a price of RMB 1,699 (roughly Rs 16,700). It is slated to be available for sale later this year on JD.com.
