A really short while ago, the first Nokia Android phone has been launched by the HMD Global on Sunday in China. In its comeback effort, the Nokia 6 smartphone was only made available in the black colour variant. However, now a Nokia 6 Silver colour option has shown up on Chinese certification website i.e. TENAA.
This is enough to prove that another Nokia 6 variant may be on the way. But it is still unclear and under questions that whether this Nokia 6 will also be launched in the international market or not.
Also, another thing to note down from this revealed Nokia 6 Silver variant’s TENAA listing is that the new Nokia Android phone carries the codename TA1000. Wondering what’s important with that? Well, as per a report by NokiaPowerUser, this codename was earlier spotted passing the 3C certification, which was earlier touted as Nokia E1 smartphone.

Just for a recall, Nokia 6 was launched exclusively for China. So, let’s take a look at the specifications of the Nokia 6 Smartphone which as given as below:
