Nokia 6 (2018)

Update (05/03): We previously spotted the Nokia 6.1, or Nokia 6 (2018), on U.S. retail sites, but they were quickly listed as out of stock. Now, HMD Global has officially announced the device in the region, and it should be in stock from Sunday, May 6.

The device will be sold in Black and Copper color variants, and will be available via Amazon and Walmart as previously seen, as well as Best Buy. We’ve reached out to HMD Global to inquire about other potential retailers. 

HMD Global says the phone will start at $269, and you can find buy links for them at the bottom of this page. If you hit up Best Buy, you might even get it a day early — it looks like it’s offering free shipping by Saturday, May 5.

Previous coverage (04/16): Already available in ChinaIndia and the U.K., the Nokia 6 (2018)’s next stop is the U.S.

Announced during MWC, HMD Global’s newest mid-range smartphone is the successor to 2017’s Nokia 6. It features a 5.5-inch 1080p display with a traditional 16:9 aspect ratio. Around back is a two-tone finish from a single block of aluminum that offers a striking look and a high level of durability.

The U.S. version is only available in black and copper, though the white/iron and blue/gold combinations could arrive at some point.

Elsewhere, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset powers the Nokia 6 (2018) and allows for fast charging and 360-degree OZO Audio recording technology. The phone also runs Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box in international markets, though the Chinese version ran Nougat out of the box. The latter has since been updated to Oreo.

On the camera front, the Nokia 6 (2018) features a primary 16MP f/2.0 sensor with Zeiss optics around back. The selfie camera weighs in at 8MP, with both cameras supporting Nokia’s “Bothie” photo mode for dual-sight shots.

Editor's Pick

You can pick up the Nokia 6 (2018) from Amazon for $269, while Walmart sells it for $276. The phone is not directly sold from Amazon, since third-party seller BREED has the phone in stock. The Nokia 6 (2018) still has a U.S. warranty from either retailer, so it’s a matter of whether you prefer one over the other.

Also keep in mind that the older Nokia 6 is available through Best Buy, B&H, and other spots. The Nokia 6 (2018) could eventually be sold through those retailers, though time will tell.
