HMD Global has just announced that the Nokia 6 will be arriving in the US in early July. The phone is the first Nokia-branded Android handset manufactured by HMD, and it signified the return of the brand to the mobile market.
The Nokia 6 will be available through Amazon in Matte Black and Silver color variations, and it will retail for $229. Later through the summer, Nokia will make the handset available in Tempered Blue and Copper, too, but no specific date has been given for the two colors. Unfortunately, HMD Global has failed to mention whether the US will be getting the Arte Black edition at any point in time, but if we had to guess, we’d say it wouldn’t be made available in the US.
The Nokia 6 is an extremely solid mid-ranger, with an aluminum uni-body. It comes with a 5.5-inch 1080 x 1920 pixels LCD display, covered in Gorilla Glass 3. The handset is powered by the go-to Qualcomm mid-range processor, Snapdragon 430. In the memory department, the Nokia 6 comes with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage.
The variation of the Nokia 6 that will arrive in the US will be the Dual-SIM one. Unfortunately, it will not be compatible with Sprint or Verizon, and it will only have partial 4G LTE support with AT&T. The only carrier that will be fully supported with the handset will be T-Mobile.
