#Hmd Global-owned Nokia has released several Android-powered handsets recently around the globe. However, some of these smartphones did not make it to the U.S. markets, as a result of which Nokia fans in the country were left wondering when the company will start retailing its devices in American stores. Now, HMD has announced that it will release the #Nokia 6 throughout the United States.

US release in the cards

HMD Global revealed the news of the Nokia 6's release through a press release, in which the company claimed that it would be releasing the handset with a price tag of $229. Being a mid-range device, the price tag seems fair.

Just after its release in the country, the handset will be available in two color variants via Amazon. The smartphone will sport the Matte Black and Silver shades after launch.

However, HMD also revealed that more color variants of the device will be added at a later date. These would include the Tempered Blue and Copper color for the handset. The company did not mention whether the device will be available in the Arte Black option, which is one of the variants retailing in other markets. Nokia’s decision seems to indicate that the U.S. stores will most likely not be getting that variant.

In the press release, the company revealed that the Nokia 6 will be probably released in early July. However, it did not offer a distinct date on which the phone will be available at retailers.

Nokia’s mid-range offering comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) display with 401 ppi pixel density.

The handset is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 430 SoC. The smartphone also houses Adreno 505 GPU. The device boasts 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of built-in storage, which can be expanded up to an additional 128 GB through the use of a microSD card.

The handset features a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera and an 8-megapixel secondary shooter, which will delight selfie lovers. It runs on the Android 7.1 Nougat operating system and boasts a 3000 mAh battery. However, the device lacks the presence of a fingerprint sensor, which is a quite common form of the biometric security feature in smartphones these days. However, the Nokia 6 is a mid-range budget handset, which is why it may have ditched the fingerprint sensor. It remains to be seen whether the handset will draw consumers in the US and generate more revenue for the company. #Mid Range
