The #Nokia 6 – which received Federal Communications Commission (FCC) certification in May – is finally coming to the #United States. The much-anticipated smartphone (which was until now sold in China) has been made available to the U.S. smartphone market and is currently up for sale. The Nokia 6 from HMD global will initially be offered only through #Amazon. The e-commerce website offers the device in two iterations.

While the original market price of the Nokia 6 is $229, Amazon (as part of a promotional activity) has further reduced the price to $179. Consumers will get access to the dual-SIM variant of the smartphone, which supports a limited set of bands.

The only network to get full support for Nokia is T-Mobile, while AT&T will give partial support for its 4G network. Unfortunately, Sprint and Verizon subscribers will receive no support for Nokia if they decide to buy the smartphone. The Nokia 6 is available for pre-order on Amazon’s website.

The handset will be released on August 18 in the United States. Consumers interested in buying the device can choose from two shades of blue and copper. However, the copper color will be available only for the ad-free and more expensive Nokia 6 model. Although Nokia 6 is currently the most popular Nokia-branded device on the market, the smartphone has been marketed as a mid-range handset.
