Nokia 6 one step closer to U.S. launch after receiving its FCC certification

Nokia 6 one step closer to U.S. launch after receiving its FCC certification
Following in the footsteps of the Nokia 3 and Nokia 5, the Nokia 6 has taken a giant step toward its expected stateside launch by receiving its FCC certification. Because the phone has already been released overseas, we don't have to guess at the specs. The handset features a Gorilla Glass 3 protected 5.5-inch LCD display with a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. Under the hood is the Snapdragon 430 chipset with an octa-core 1.4GHz CPU and the Adreno 505 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of expandable storage.

The 16MP rear camera comes with an f/2.0 aperture, PDAF and Laser auto focus. A front-facing 8MP camera is available for users to snap selfies and handle video chats. A fingerprint scanner is on board, and keeping the lights on is a 3000mAh battery. The handset was updated to Android 7.1.1 prior to its global launch, which could take place next month.

The handset's U.K. pricing is equivalent to $297 USD. This conversion doesn't always work out perfectly, but it does give us a ball park figure of what to expect when the Nokia 6 is finally made available in the U.S.

If you live in the U.S. and have been dreaming about owning this phone, keep checking in for the latest information. on the Nokia 6.

Why 430? Should have at least been 625...

Nokia phones are not about specs.. if you want that get Moto G5 plus Nokia is more about overall experience... It is built like a Tank + Pure android + Fast updates + good enough in other departments Camera could have been better though..

This is definitly the phone that i´d buy to my mom as a gift or to my dad. Specially because its for costumers that are not worried about high specs but they still want to have the best experience on their phones. So it fits right to elder people that are Ok with those specs. For me i would only purchase in the next generation when they will launch a flagship.

I don't think there will be a huge performance difference between the 625 and 430 considering both are octa-core A53 chipsets. There is a difference in their clock speed (1.4 vs 2.0) and the process they're built on (28 vs 14 nm), but considering Nokia is using stock Android for their software it should mean that you won't need a lot of CPU power in order to operate the device smoothly.

Definitely going to pick up a Nokia 6 once it's available stateside. Looking forward to rocking out with Nokia handsets again.

I will wait for the Nokia 9 thank you, the Nokia 6 might've been an option if it would've a 625 processor, still a good phone.

Why would anyone buy this? Even HTC and Sony devices are better.

Because the UI sucks on both Sony and HTC phones. People have serious issues if they buy phones just on looks

$150 should be the price.

I think the Nokia 6 might be $300-$350 after taxes. still a good price, if it only had the 625 I might consider buying it...
