Nokia has made its official comeback with its Nokia 6 smartphone last month in China. Though Nokia has launched a device after three years, the smartphone is only available in China as of now. Recently, the handset was spotted on eBay India with an unreasonable price which is the imported model. Now, a new development hints that the company is planning to launch its Nokia 6 smartphone global variant.
According to a NokiaPowerUser report, the global variant of Nokia 6 with the model number TA-1003 was been certified in Taiwan. Previously, the same model number of Nokia 6 was spotted on Bluetooth certification and GFXBench. The listed smartphone supports cellular connectivity of LTE, GSM, and CDMA networks.

It is a dual-SIM mobile with 3000mAh battery which is non-removable in nature with fast charging capabilities.
On the camera front, the Nokia 6 offers a 16MP primary rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, dual-tone flash, and PDAF. It also has an 8MP front-facing camera for selfies and video calling.
