Despite HMD Global recently stating that there are no plans to bring its Nokia phones to the US this year, it looks like they might have had a change of heart because the company has recently announced that the Nokia 6 (2018) will be headed to the US this coming May. Pricing was not confirmed but it is priced at £200 in the UK, which when converted is roughly $280.
This was confirmed by Juho Sarvikas who is HMD’s chief product officer. He also confirmed that the phone would not be launched through a carrier and will instead be sold outright, which according to him is the current trend. It is unclear as to why there is different information regarding HMD’s US operations, but regardless it seems that the Nokia 6 (2018) will be a phone you could look out for in the coming months.
For those unfamiliar with the 2018 version of the Nokia 6, the handset was announced at MWC 2018 this week. It will feature a 5.5-inch Full HD display and will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset. There will be 3GB and 4GB options, where they will also come with 32GB or 64GB respectively.
There will also be a 16MP rear-facing camera accompanying the phone, and an 8MP front-facing camera, complete with a 3,000mAh battery. The Nokia 6 (2018) will run on Android One, which according to a recent report will be the de facto platform that HMD will be going with from now on.
