HMD Global had launched 5 new smartphones at the MWC 2018, and now one of those phones has made it to the US. We’re talking about the Nokia 6 (2018), the upgraded version of the original Nokia 6.
Nokia Mobile hasn’t announced the news over in the US, but there are a couple of retailers like Amazon and Walmart which have listed the 3GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM version of the Nokia 6 (2018) on their sites. Android Central was the first to report the news, stating that the two had put the smartphone up for sale at $269.99 unlocked.
However, Amazon says the Nokia 6 (2018) is currently unavailable, while Walmart says it’s out of stock. Moreover, the latter has listed the handset at $274.61, a bit more than the aforementioned price. It’s not clear when the phone will go live again.
The Nokia 6 (2018) has so far made it to markets like China, India, and the UK. The last got it just a few days ago via Carphone Warehouse which is vending it at £229 SIM-free.
