The Nokia 7 smartphone that was launched in October last year is not available for buying outside of China. Even the newly unveiled Nokia 6 (2018) is exclusively available for buying in the home country. Fresh information suggests two models of a same Nokia phone has been approved by Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the U.S. It is speculated that it could be the Nokia 7 or the second-generation Nokia 6 that would be arriving in the U.S. soon.
The model number of the two Nokia phones that have been certified by FCC are TA-1045 and TA-1016. These are single-SIM and dual-SIM editions of the Nokia 7 or Nokia 6 (2018) for the U.S. The FCC documentation of these phones state that they have been built to specifically function in the U.S. HMD Global has reportedly used a proprietary software to disable support for non-US frequencies on TA-1045 and TA-1016 that will make the smartphone usable in the U.S.
The FCC has revealed that the upcoming Nokia phone for the U.S. includes a 3,000 mAh battery and it will come preloaded with Android 8.0 Oreo. The Nokia 7 and Nokia 6 (2018) are both packed with 3,000 mAh battery. Also, both smartphones are now receiving the Android 8.0 Oreo update in the home country. Hence, it is difficult to tell whether the Nokia 7 or Nokia 6 (2018) would be landing soon in the U.S.
