HMD Global Oy is lucky to have inherited a company whose reputation is still resounding despite its long absence from the market. The Nokia brand has also got a global followership and Nokia may likely make use of that huge followership to release the Nokia 6 (2018) in the U.S. According to a recent report, the Nokia 6 (2018) will hit store shelves in May. The disclosure is credited to Juho Sarvikas, HMD’s chief product officer, in a recent interview. In the interview, Sarvikas also commented on the company’s decision to not go for carrier partners for their phones. “The trend is that the open market is growing,” he said. “If you look at this US open market, this midtier is where you have a lot of people purchasing their device,” adding the new Nokia 6 is a good proposition for this market.
