The Nokia 6 is Coming to the US in July

HMD Global announced today that it is bringing the Nokia 6 to the United States in early July. The smartphone will be sold through and will cost just $229.

“It brings us great pleasure to introduce a new generation of U.S. fans to Nokia phones, while offering existing fans the same unparalleled and high quality Nokia phone experience they have come to love over the years,” HMD Global vice president Maurizio Angelone said in a prepared statement. “The Nokia 6 exemplifies our commitment to best-in-class performance, design, and craftsmanship, and we are proud to offer American consumers a smartphone option that will not require them to sacrifice quality for cost.”

While the Nokia 6 is, by any measure, a mid-level handset, it is currently the highest-ended Nokia-branded smartphone available. You may recall that HMD announced its first lineup of Nokia-branded smartphones back in February, and that it is also offering Nokia 3 and Nokia 5 models too.

The Nokia 6 is the most interesting, and it features a 5.5-inch Full HD display, a middling Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor and Adreno 505 graphics, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage (expandable with microSD), and a 16 MP rear camera. It retains some of the classic Nokia styling elements, an utilizes an aluminum unibody “with the highest level of visual and structural quality.”

The Nokia 6 will initially be available in Matte Black and Silver, but Tempered Blue and Copper colors will ship “later this summer.”

$229? Yes, I will have to check this out.

    <p>Might get one for the hell of it, though I feel a hypothetical Nokia 7 with a faster CPU and higher definition screen would fit my needs more.</p>

    <p>I wonder how "OnePlus"-ish it will be. Seems Nokia's and OnePlus's past are similar in terms of users. Make it simple, but keep it clean. Hopefully the Nokia's will be this simple and clean, yet work.</p>

    <p>I love Nokia and the PEOPLE that made these phones wonderful. The SAME PEOPLE are making these phones. That's what makes me want to get these phones. Nokia was what made Windows phones special. With pure Android, I can finally begin to actually love an Android phone. :)</p><p><br></p><p>Anyone on the same boat?</p>

    <p>Android Central reports: "<span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0); background-color: transparent;">T-Mobile and its prepaid affiliates are fully supported, but a word of caution that LTE Band 29 and 30 are </span><em style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0); background-color: transparent;">not</em><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0); background-color: transparent;"> included so AT&amp;T is only </span><em style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0); background-color: transparent;">partially</em><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0); background-color: transparent;"> supported." Take that for what it is worth.</span></p>

    <p>Frankly, $229 for a Snapdragon 430 is disappointing. The Moto G5 Plus costs the same and comes with a 625. That's a big jump in performance for the same price.</p>

      <blockquote><a href="#132690"><em>In reply to euskalzabe:</em></a></blockquote><p>Heck, you can get a NextBit Robin for $130 with an 808. And it's got updates coming through 2018.</p>

    <p>Has the Nokia 9 been announced yet…?</p>

    <p>the only thing this phone has going for it is perhaps build quality, because it all other aspects, it would seem like the Moto G5 Plus makes it a non-starter.</p>
