Many companies have brought their not yet launched phones in USA over the past week, courtesy of CES 2018. HMD Global is one of them, preparing to debut in USA the Nokia 7 and Nokia 6 (2018), especially judging by the latest FCC certification.
Models TA-1016 and TA-1045 in both single and dual SIM versions have been certified by the authority for an US debut. The Office of Engineering and Technology has confirmed them, with “no support for any non US bandwidth channels in all the operation modes”. This means that these are products for the US market for sure. Both units have 3000 mAh batteries, which narrows it down to the Nokia 7 and Nokia 6 (2018).
Android 8.0 Oreo is on board, plus the November 2017 security patch. Nokia 6 (2018) was unveiled this month, with a Snapdragon 630 CPU, a 5.5 inch Full HD screen and a 16 megapixel camera. It sold and ordered like hot cakes in China and it’s priced at around $250 or so. It’s got 4 GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel selfie shooter and USB Type-C port.
Nokia 7 came last fall and it’s sort of like a lesser Nokia 8, wit a 16 MP camera with Zeiss optics and 4K video capture, Snapdragon 630 CPU and 6 GB of RAM. It also has a 3000 mAh battery, 64 GB of storage and a 5.2 inch Full HD screen. The price should be $100 more than the Nokia 6 (2018).
