The already affordable Nokia 6.1 with Android Pie is now cheaper than ever
If you’re looking for an affordable mid-range phone with Android 9.0 Pie software, the Nokia 6.1 is pretty much impossible to beat right now. Commercially released in the US back in May at a recommended price of $269, the 5.5-incher dropped to $229 a few months ago, scoring an additional $30 discount in early November.

Even though Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are a thing of the past, the Nokia 6.1 has just been discounted again, hitting a new all-time low price of $179. You can get the Android One device in “Copper Black” only from B&H Photo Video, Amazon, or Best Buy, with 4G LTE support offered across the board for GSM networks like AT&T and T-Mobile.

It almost goes without saying that the Nokia 6.1 battles the Moto G6 in the sub-$200 category, although the two handsets are hardly identical. The G6 has a larger, trendier screen with a 2:1 aspect ratio and thinner bezels, while the 6.1 runs a newer, smoother OS version that’s also more regularly updated with Google’s latest security patches.
Under the hood, Nokia’s low-cost mid-ranger packs a faster Snapdragon 630 processor, but the Moto G6 features two rear-facing cameras, compared to just one 16MP shooter on the back of the 6.1.

Of course, that single cam is no pushover, rocking state-of-the-art Zeiss optics and dual-tone flash. The Nokia 6.1 is also unusually robust for this very attractive price segment, with a top-notch 6000 series aluminum unibody construction.

Add 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage space to the equation, and you get a dreamy list of features for your 179 bucks. Go on, pull the trigger before it’s too late!
