Nokia made a splash during MWC 2017 when it announced its new Android smartphones, the Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3. High-end, midrange, and lower end, respectively, Nokia is aiming to bring strong Android phones globally at lower costs. For those in the U.S. hoping to get their hands on the beast of the trio, the Nokia 6, you may not have to wait much longer as the device has popped up for FCC certification.
Listed as Model TA-1025, the Nokia 6 will come with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage. HMD Global-owned Nokia was offering a limited edition Nokia 6 in Arte Black that came with 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM, but it’s unclear if we will see that stateside. Hopefully the four main colors will all be available: matte black, silver, blue, and copper.
The Nokia 6 will run pure Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box, which is very welcome news considering much more expensive flagships just released are still running Android 7.0. Looking at you Samsung Galaxy S8. When the Nokia 6 was released globally, it retailed for approximately $242 USD equivalent and there’s no reason to think the price for the U.S. version will be terribly different.
Unless you need no more reasons to be excited about this phone, in addition to running a pure version of Android, Nokia has also committed to “Nexus style” software updates so your phone should never be without the latest versions and security patches, Again, something most other Android manufacturers are still struggling with to this day.
No word yet on official pricing and availability, but we will surely be on the lookout for that information.
