The original Nokia 6 from 2017 has received a big Rs 1500 price cut on Amazon India and is currently available for Rs 13499. The drop has arrived just over a week after the handset’s 2018 version with Android One was showcased at the MWC 2018.
To recall, the Nokia 6 (2017) first hit India back in June last year in a 3GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM variant at Rs 14999. HMD Global introduced a 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM variant last month at Rs 16999. This particular version hasn’t gotten any cheaper. It’s currently being sold exclusively via Flipkart.
It’s not entirely clear whether this Rs 1500 difference is a permanent cut or a temporary one for a limited period of time. It should ideally be the former since the Nokia 6 (2017) is more than a year old now, if you consider the fact that it was first launched in China in January 2017 and globally in February 2017.
Plus, selling the Nokia 6 (2017) at Rs 13499 will help make the device more competitive against newer rivals like the Redmi Note 5 and Honor 7X. One of the best things that the Nokia 6 has going for it are guaranteed updates for at least 2 years and close-to-stock Android software.
Here’s a quick look at the Nokia 6’s specifications:
– OS: Android 7.1.1 Nougat, upgradable to Oreo
