More than six months since its unveiling in China, the Nokia 6 finally made it to the U.S. over the summer through Amazon. However, the phone was only available in two color variants of Black and Silver.
The Nokia 6 came with two storage and RAM options. The base model, which comes with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, is the only one that has been selling in the U.S. The high-end model has 4GB RAM and 64GB storage and it also comes in Arte Black, but it has remained elusive for U.S. residents. However, this is no more as the phone has just been listed on Amazon.
The base model sells at $229.99, but you only need to pay $179.99 to get the Amazon Prime Exclusive version, which comes with lock screen ads. As expected, the 4GB RAM and 64GB storage variant is more expensive at $299, but the rest of the specs and features remain the same as the entry-level model.
Of course, the Arte Black Nokia 6 is not a new phone in any way. It was unveiled back in February, but it’s the first time it coming to the U.S. Unfortunately, the current listing on Amazon shows that the phone is out of stock, but things should change sooner than later.
Perhaps HMD Global is making up to the American people after it recently confirmed that those in the U.S. won’t see the Nokia 8 selling locally. The phone, unlike the Nokia 6, has high-end specs and features akin to those found in the Google Pixel 2 family, Samsung Galaxy S8, HTC U11 and a bunch of other flagship phones, but it’s slightly cheaper.
Meanwhile, HMD Global has opened up the beta program for Android Oreo, but it’s currently limited to Nokia 8. Sooner or later, it should be open to those on Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and maybe Nokia 3.
