We were given our first glimpse at the Nokia 6 Android smartphone back in January. The Nokia 6, which is produced by HMD Global, was announced as a mid-range fighter, packing a Snapdragon 430 processor, 4GB RAM, 5.5-inch Full HD display, 64GB of internal storage, 16MP rear camera, 8MP selfie camera, 3000 mAh battery and a front-mounted fingerprint sensor.
Today we’re being given the lowdown on the Nokia 6’s arrival here in the United States. Unfortunately, it looks as though the version of the phone that we will get won’t be as well spec’d. We will receive only 3GB of RAM, while internal storage has been cut in half to just 32GB. At least there’s a microSD slot which supports up to 128GB cards if 32GB isn’t enough for your storage needs.
It should also be noted that the Nokia 6 will only be fully supported on the T-Mobile’s wireless network here in the states. If you attempt use the phone on AT&T’s network, you will only have partial 4G LTE data coverage, as bands 29 and 30 are not supported. Don’t even bother if you are on Sprint or Verizon, as those networks aren’t supported at all.
"The new Nokia 6 sets a high bar for quality and we've taken no shortcuts to ensure the Nokia 6 rewards you with a premium experience for everyday use,” said HMD Global Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas. “From its bespoke design through to the quality entertainment features, we've designed the Nokia 6 to give you more."
The Nokia 6 will be an Amazon-exclusive here in the United States beginning in July, and will be priced at $229. It will initially only be available in Matte Black and Silver, although Tempered Blue and Copper colors will be available later this summer.
