Nokia 6 was the first handset introduced by HMD Global after they had purchased Nokia from Microsoft. However, it was only available in China initially. Now Nokia has launched the phone internationally and it will hit the market in late July or early August, and a report from Nokiamob points to the fact that the global variant will be different from the one launched in China.
Currently, there are two models of the Nokia 6 available in China, TA-1000 and TA-1003, where the only difference is that the TA-1000 does not come with Google services, and the TA-1003 comes with them.
Though the global variant will have many differences than the variant you get in China we currently don’t know about. What we do know is the fact that the global variant will not come sporting a LED Notification light. This was recently confirmed by HMD Global.
Currently, there are four models of the Nokia 6 set to come in the market globally, TA-1033, TA-1039, TA-1021, TA-1025 out of which neither will sport the LED Notification light. HMD Global commented that the decision to remove the feature was taken after doing extensive research on the global markets. This can still be seen as viable as Apple has never provided a notification LED light in their smartphones and the iPhone still sells like hot cakes.
“When it comes to your inquiry about the removal of LED from the global version, please be aware that in regards to global markets, due to specific research, a decision has been made about the removal of the LED,”
The lack of a notification LED light would not be a deal breaker for the Nokia fans, but it would have made things much easier if Nokia did not remove the feature.
