Finnish start-up HMD Global, which owns the rights to the Nokia brand – will launch Nokia 6 smartphone in the US in July.
Priced at $229, Nokia 6 will be Amazon exclusive and will come in matte black and silver. Additional tempered blue and copper colours will be offered later this year.
Initially, the new Android-based Nokia smartphones (Nokia 6, Nokia 5, Nokia 3) were unveiled at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this year.
With 5.5-inch full-HD display Nokia 6 is largest of the pack and features unibody design. The device is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor paired up with 3GB of RAM, and has 32GB of internal storage that can be further expanded via micro-SD card.
On the software side, Nokia 6 runs on Android Nougat and will offer a pure, secure and up to date experience and will come with Google Assistant.
The company also announced the Nokia 6 Arte Black Limited Edition that will come with 64GB storage and 4GB RAM in a black high gloss package at the MWC.
According to a report in The Verge, “Nokia 6 will only offer full support for 4G LTE for T-Mobile customers. AT&T will be partially supported, while Sprint and Verizon CDMA-based networks won’t work at all.”
Nokia 6 sports a 16MP rear camera and a 8MP front camera.
At the MWC, HMD Global also promised that the smaller Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 phones will also be launched in the US, but as of now there is no confirmation from the company as to when those models will be available.
