Nokia To Launch Global Variant Of The Nokia 6

Nokia is making a comeback this February and it won’t be without the Nokia 6 which is currently selling in China only. The Mobile World Congress is a global stage and whatever phone Nokia would be announcing would make it to most of the big smart cellphone marketplaces of the entire world. We all know that HMD Global officially introduced the Nokia 6 in China, and it was a massive hit. However, now it seems that soon Nokia will launch a global variant of Nokia 6, which mean that soon it is going to be available outside of China.

HMD Global announced the first Nokia smartphone that is powered by Android a few days ago. The first Android device from Nokia is Nokia 6 which is only launched in the Chinese market and is only available via HMD Global will be specifically production these devices. Originally, we thought there would be up to four new mobile phones in 2017, but the rumors recommend there will actually be as many as six or seven. The rumors come from Malaysian distributor Avaxx, which said Nokia will aim to launch phones in all price ranges.

Nokia 6 is the first smartphone developed in collaboration with HMD Global. Nokia has already broken few records with their latest Nokia 6, the mid-range smartphone from Nokia is already a sensation. Nokia 6 got 2,50,000 registration in less than 24 hours of being launched and was sold out in under one minute during the first flash sale. Recently, HMD Global is set to launch the global variant of the Nokia 6 along with 3 more handsets, namely the Nokia 5, Nokia 3 and the flagship Nokia 8.

The Nokia 6 was released in China on January 19 for a price of CNY 1,699 (around Rs 17,000). and was sold out in minutes. The smart phone has not been launched in any other area as of now and a worldwide launch, described previously above, is predicted later this month at MWC 2017. the Nokia 6 will launch globally anytime now as the phone has passed Bluetooth certification. The global variant of the Nokia 6 will have a model number TA-1003 and it supports LTE, CDMA and GSM. 

The HMD Global was granted an exclusive global license to sell Nokia phones. The handset also marks the re-entry of the brand in the smartphone industry. Nokia 6 is the first mobile phone of the company to come powered with Google’s Android OS. However, as we reported recently that Nokia 6 could be grabbed via eBay India. Well, the prices are almost double than the cost of the smart phone in China. Nokia hasn’t yet shared anything regarding when the smart phone will be available to Indian users.

But, now it seems that all wait is over, as a global variant of the new Nokia 6 has been recently certified in Taiwan, which is bearing the model number “TA-1003”, as it is the same model number that also passed the Bluetooth certification a few days ago. Coming to the newly announced Nokia 6 specification and features. Under the hood, the GSM-based mobile phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor with X6 LTE modem and is coupled with 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM.

On the software front, it runs on latest Android 7.0 Nougat based operating system out of the box. For the storage, it houses a 64GB of internal storage, which can be further expandable via microSD card slot expansion. However, if we talk about the specs, then it will feature the same specs as the Chinese variant features.
