The Nokia 6 is now available in the U.S., both in its regular and Prime exclusive variants
Fans of the Nokia brand stateside, we have an exciting piece of news for you: the Nokia 6, HMD Global's current best device on the market, is finally available for purchase on U.S. soil. The phone, as previously announced, will initially be available exclusively from Amazon, and comes in two variants: the regular retail version of the device, and a cheaper, ad-supported Amazon Prime exclusive.
And while the regular Nokia 6 can be bought for just $229, Amazon's version slashes that price further down to $179. Consumers stateside will get access to the Dual-SIM variant only, which also supports a rather limited set of bands. Nokia has only promised full support for T-Mobile, as well as partial support for AT&T's 4G network — sorry, Verizon and Sprint users!
But while the Nokia 6 is currently the best Nokia-branded device on the market, it should be noted that it's, in fact, a mid-ranger (just in case the price didn't tip you off). It offers a Snapdragon 430 SoC coupled with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. It has a 5.5-inch, Full HD display, and packs a 16 MP rear camera, but its biggest draw might just be its stock Android, which the company promises to update as soon as possible. All in all, it's a pretty good package for the price, but those wanting something a bit more flagship might opt to wait for the upcoming Nokia 9 (or is it the Nokia 8 now?) instead.
