In December, Nokia announced that it would be returning to the smartphone market at some point in 2017 with a new Android handset. The company has confirmed that it will be releasing the Nokia 6 this year. The catch? It’s only available in China.

HMD Global, a Finnish company that was founded to develop phones under the Nokia brand name, noted in a press release that the phone will only be available in China through retailed, and that it will be available “in early 2017.” However, the release did note that the Nokia 6 was the first step for the company, and that there would be more to come this year.

The company outlined that the phone was machined out of aluminum, and which featured a 2.5D Gorilla Glass screen, as well as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor with X6 LTE modem. The phone also comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage and runs an Android Nougat operating system. The phone will also feature a 16MP rear camera and a 8MP front-facing camera.

The phone will retail for ¥1699 (around $250 USD).
