Hi Folks, As we know Nokia 6.1 is launched in India and soon to be launched in US. Wanted to know if the Nokia 6.1 india version will support 4G/LTE US bands like AT&T and T-Mobile? Asking this question because if I travel to US should be still be able use the same phone. Thank you!
which LTE bands does your nokia 6.1 from India have? it is very likely it will work on LTE bands in the US, let me know so I can help you with that.
Below is the response from Nokia support team on the bands supported by Nokia 6.1 India version. Can you help if these will work in US as well?
"In response to your query regarding Nokia 6.1, we would like to inform you that Nokia 6.1 version launch in India is different from which is launch in other countries and regarding Networks bands it supports GSM: 850/900/1800/1900, WCDMA Band 1, 2, 5, 8, LTE Band 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 20, 28, 38, 40, 41 you can check Network Bands availability in US. "
Hi Mobile CR, please let me know if you are able to get the details. Thank you!
OK, the US version TA-1045 is now on sale on Amazon. The listing doesn't give any information on the US bands or US compatibility. Can you provide the band listing?
I got a direct reply. There isn't a separate US phone. It gets the global version which is this.
Global: GSM 850/900/1800/1900; WCDMA: Band 1, 2, 5, 8 LTE: Band 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 20, 28, 38, 40, 41(Full band 41)
So while you can use it on T-Mobile, it doesn't fully support all of T-Mobile's bands which are:
· Frequencies: Band 2 (1900 MHz), Band 4 (1700/2100 MHz), Band 5 (850 MHz), Band 12 (700 MHz), Band 66 (Extension of band 4 on 1700/2100 MHz), Band 71 (600 MHz)
After I sent my last note based on a reply from Nokia I got a second email saying that in fact there is a version that supports more US bands
Here are the bands
GSM 850/900/1800/1900 WCDMA: Band 1, 2, 4, 5, 8 LTE: Band 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 12/17, 20, 28, 38
So the question is: is TA-1045 a US variant? 3d Party reseller selling it now on Amazon and NewEgg.
Will it have a US Nokia Warranty or it is a grey market distributor?
OK one more question. I see there is going to be a 4gb/64gb version shortly. (The one on Amazon now is 3gb/32gb). Is the 4gb/64gb coming to the US?
Hi Everyone - after reading the quote from - user1523446948197 - " After I sent my last note based on a reply from Nokia I got a second email saying that in fact there is a version that supports more US bands
Here are the bands
The available bands are now posted on a number of sites including this on BHphoto
(If it doesn't show, see specs).
While it works on LTE, on T-mobile it is missing the new 600 mhz band
By the way, note that Nokia has been rolling out the 64gb version of this phone in other markets about 4 or 5 weeks after the 32gb version appears. There has been no indication the 64gb is coming to the US, but Nokia has brought it everywhere else (though in one country as an Amazon exclusive)
I have purchased Nokia 6.1 (TA-1045) from Amazon and the box says it's a USA version. I have put in a TMobile SIM and observe the following:
I'd be surprised if it was anything other than a short term glitch or a wrong setting unless you live in some unusual areas. First be sure that under "settings" and "more" and "cellular networks" that preferred network is "LTE" and that "enhanced 4g LTE" is checked and "data roaming" is on. Then be sure to get the latest updates for the phone via wifi. Finally restart the phone.
This is confusing because there are two different models of the Nokia 6.1. There is the International and the United States. AT&T uses five LTE bands in the United States 2, 4, 5, 12,17. The most common LTE band is 17. The Nokia 6.1 International model has these LTE bands 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 20, 28, 34, 38, 39, 40, 41. Only two of the five LTE bands are on the International model 4, 5. The US model has all five of the LTE bands 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 12/17, 20, 28, 38. The International phone has 4 G RAM and 64 G of storage. The problem is the US phone costs $35 more and has 3 G of RAM and 32 G of storage.
