Mystery variant of the Nokia 6 passes Wi-Fi certification. Possible global release?

As you probably know, HMD has recently announced the first Nokia-branded Android smartphone it's going to produce. It's named the Nokia 6 and will be launching in China today. The handset is a midranger with shiny looks and an aggressive price-tag and expectations for it to launch in Western markets aren't high.

Mystery variant of the Nokia 6 passes Wi-Fi certification. Possible global release?
However, not all hope is lost. Website NokiaPowerUser managed to dig up a Wi-Fi certification for what appears to be a different variant of the Nokia 6. The model that is going to launch in China is known to be TA-1000. However, now, there's a new TA-1003 variant and it's unknown why it would exist.

Of course, the mere existence of a different variant of the phone barely means that it will be hitting European and US markets. However, it may still be a possibility.

The Nokia 6 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430, paired with 4 GB of RAM. The processor is nothing to write home about, but it has a generous amount of RAM for its class of device, its 16 MP main camera and 8 MP selfie snapper sound promising, its design is pretty, and... well — it's a Nokia-branded phone! So, yes, there is some excitement surrounding this device. Whether it's justified — we'd love to find out if we ever get our hands on it.

mmmmm the design looks as if an iPhone and a Samgung Galaxy S had a baby.

I'm really glad Nokia is back on business but altough they're going to release new cellphones with cool specs at a friendly price, they should also improve the design of their phones.

When I think of Nokia I think of quality and beautiful designs.

I know this is not the Nokia we used to know, but still...

What do you mean by "improve the design"?
It is a smartphone! You can't reinvent that is has a touchscreen on the front and buttons somewhere on the side. And most people like metal unibodys, so that is what it has as well.
I think it is actually a good looking device! If priced right, I would be willing to give it a chance!
