With Nokia’s big Indian comeback over and done with, HMD Global is now shifting its sights to the US. The corporation is planning on releasing the Nokia 6 in the country in early July.
The Nokia 6 has the honor of being the very first Android-running Nokia phone to make the trip to the US. It’ll be priced at $229 in the nation and be available only via Amazon. The first batch is set to be composed of the Matte Black and Silver color options. The Tempered Blue and Copper shades are supposed to arrive later this summer.
HMD’s press release announcing the Nokia smartphone’s debut mentioned that the handset will only offer full 4G support for T-Mobile subscribers. AT&T customers will be getting partial LTE support, with Band 29 and Band 30 not on the list of supported bands.

Sprint and Verizon customers are getting left out completely with absolutely no voice/text, 2G, 3G, or 4G services available. The Nokia 6 supports GSM bands 850/900/1800/1900, WCDMA bands 1, 2, 4, 5, and 8, and LTE bands 2, 3, 4, 7, 12/17, 28, and 38.

HMD Global hasn’t stated when the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, and Nokia 3310 are coming to the US yet. The last won’t work in the country in its current form since it only supports the 90MHz frequency and not the 850 and 1900 frequencies required to be compatible with carriers like AT&T.
