Hmd Global, the current owner of the rights to the Nokia brand, recently unveiled their approach in reviving the Nokia name by releasing powerful smartphones in the mid-end market that are surprisingly well equipped and competitively priced.

The top variant of their new line of smartphones, the Nokia 6, has been made available in several markets in Asia since January, but now the company is aiming to extend their product's reach by releasing the device in the United States next month.

A competitive product

The Nokia 6 is currently the company's top of the line product above the recently unveiled Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 smartphones.

The largest of the three Android smartphones is a low-cost device that is clad with a metal unibody and some top-end features that should make it an irresistible buy for cost-conscious consumers. While the device is marketed as a low-cost device, the Nokia 6 is still built with premium materials, which makes it look and feel more expensive that other devices in its price range.

Hardware specs and features

The device, which was officially unveiled worldwide at the recently held 2017 Mobile World Congress event, features a 5.5-inch screen with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Powering the device is a more than capable Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor paired with 3GB of RAM. Given that the device runs an almost bone-stock version of Android Nougat, the processor and RAM combination should be more than enough to get any task done without much fuss.

The new Nokia also comes with a decent camera setup that is comprised of a 16-megapixel unit at the back and an 8 megapixel unit up front. The device will be made available with 32 GB of internal storage space, which is expandable up to 128 GB via a microSD card slot.

Official Release

HMD Global has revealed that it will be making the Nokia 6 available in the United States in early July.

The device will be priced at a competitive $299, which is only a fraction of the cost of other top-end offerings from companies such as Samsung and HTC.

The Nokia 6 will be coming with full support for T-Mobile's 4G LTE network. It will have partial support for AT&T, but it, unfortunately, will not work with both Verizon and Sprint.

Following its release next month, HMD also plans to make the Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 available at a later date. The company has not yet revealed the exact release dates for both smartphones for the North American markets.
