Nokia 6.1 with Android Pie hits new all-time low price of $200 at Best Buy and Amazon
$229.99 sounded like a pretty great price for a 5.5-inch smartphone with Android One software, 3GB RAM, and 32GB storage space a couple of months ago, but as Black Friday draws near, the Nokia 6.1 was in need of another cool discount to tempt patient bargain hunters.

Hot on the heels of the handset’s remarkably early official Android 9 Pie update, both Amazon and Best Buy are now charging $199.99 instead of the original $269 price. The former e-commerce giant only has the black model available with the full $69 savings, while the latter retailer sells the white/iron color option at that same exact rate.

Originally released back in May, at least stateside, the Nokia 6.1 got a Plus variant just a few months later, although the “notchy” 5.8-incher never made its way to the US. Instead, if you live around these parts and are starting to fall for the Nokia brand again, you can purchase the Nokia 7.1... for a whopping 150 bucks more than the marked-down 6.1.

There aren’t a lot of sub-$250 phones officially available in the US with a similarly premium build as the Series 6000 aluminum-made Nokia 6.1, not to mention that fresh, almost pure Google software, and a sweet Zeiss-optimized 16MP rear-facing camera.

Granted, the screen bezels could be thinner, and the battery larger, but all in all, it’s hard to compete with this extremely well-balanced Snapdragon 630 device at $199.99. Sold unlocked by both Best Buy and Amazon, the Nokia 6.1 can be activated on your GSM network of choice, be it AT&T, T-Mobile, or a smaller prepaid operator.
