Nokia 6 goes global, gets a special edition

Last month saw the launch of the first Nokia smartphone running Android, the mid-range Nokia 6. Unfortunately for fans of the brand worldwide, the phone was a China exclusive, and up until now the company showed no intent of bringing it to other markets.

However, after selling out like hotcakes in numerous flash sales, it seems like HMD Global has warmed up to the idea of selling the Nokia 6 outside of China as well. Mere minutes ago, during its MWC presentation, the company announced that the Nokia 6 will be available globally in Q2 2017, and also revealed a premium special edition of the Nokia 6 with a high-gloss piano black finish on the back.

The basic version of the Nokia 6 will be available for 229 euro (241 USD), while the premium Nokia 6 Arte will go for 299 euro (315 USD), HMD Global announced.

Very good decision .. Release it with SD 835 later , than risk ruining it with Sd 821 like G6 ( the media/reviewers will paint this aspect in bad light ) Also Pure stock Android on all Nokia phones !!!

priced decently constant security and software updates, nice design and colour availability and looks durable if their word to be taken that's a good reason to buy that device and if you don't like it no one is forcing your hand to buy one

No sheeps are worse than isheeps, bro. Btw, the Nokia 6 is not overpriced compared to Samsung, Apple and HTC.

Great start Nokia.. I loved the new phones.. Look like the Lumia 720 and 520, but metal and very affordable. Nokia is gonna hit the Chinese manufacturers so badly!

my favourite thing is that you can see they've got nokia's spirit and legacy and that alone is enough reassurance to me to wait for the flagship nice designs colourful, i personally can't wait

Absolutely love the fact that Nokia/HMD is releasing this handset globally. Definitely going to purchase the Nokia 6 Arte. Keep them coming, Nokia!

I'm getting the Nokia 5 me that sleek one piece of aluminum design! Glad to see the 6 getting globally released as well. Nokia's really doing well in their return to market.
