Nokia 6 3GB RAM variant’s price in India appears to have been slashed. The smartphone model, which was launched in June last year at a price of Rs. 14,999, is now available for purchase through Amazon India at Rs. 13,499. The discounted comes days after HMD Global unveiled the Nokia 6 (2018) Android One handset at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 in Barcelona. Moreover, it makes the Nokia 6 3GB RAM version a stronger competitor against the Redmi Note 5 and Honor 7X.
The discounted price is applicable on the Nokia 6 3GB RAM Silver and Matte Black versions. Amazon India is additionally offering an exchange offer to provide a discount of up to Rs. 12,111. We’ve reached out to HMD Global to understand whether the new price is a limited period offer or represents a price cut for the country, and will update this space accordingly.
The dual-SIM Nokia 6 was launched with Android Nougat, though it received an update to Android 8.0 Oreo in late January. The smartphone features a 5.5-inch full-HD display with 2.5D curved Gorilla Glass protection and is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC. It has a 16-megapixel rear camera sensor and an 8-megapixel front camera sensor, both with an f/2.0 aperture lens.
The 3GB RAM version of the Nokia 6 has 32GB of onboard storage that is expandable via microSD card (up to 128GB). In terms of connectivity, there is 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS/ A-GPS, Micro-USB, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The handset also has a front-facing fingerprint sensor. Besides, it comes with stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos audio support and packs a 3000mAh battery.
The Nokia 6’s 4GB RAM variant, with 64GB of inbuilt storage, was launched last month at Rs. 16,999, and it is a Flipkart exclusive.
