The Nokia 6 (2018) was released in China in January sporting a price tag of ¥1499 ($230), shortly after which HMD Global announced its availability in Western markets as part of Google's Android One program, putting them first-in-line for the newest Android updates and security patches.
The Nokia 6 (2018) is now available for purchase by consumers in the U.K. through Carphone Warehouse. You should also be able to snag the 2018 model by walking into any one of their brick-and-mortar outlets, with the 3GB RAM/32GB storage variant retailing for £229.99.
The device sets itself apart from its predecessor in many ways, including moving from capacitive navigation keys to onscreen ones, shifting its fingerprint sensor over to the back, reduced display bezels and an upgraded Snapdragon 630 SoC, up from last year's Snapdragon 430. The Chinese variant of the device released with the older Android Nougat (7.1.1), but the global variant will run Android Oreo (8.0) out of the box.
Other specs include a single 16MP rear-shooter accompanied by an 8MP front-facing one, a 16:9 aspect ratio 1080p resolution LCD display and Bluetooth 5.0.
As of now, the Nokia 6 (2018) has been available in India for ₹16,999 ($260) through Nokia's official website since last week. It also became available in Norway earlier today via Elkjop at NOK 2,990 ($385).
It's available for preorder in Germany through MediaMarkt and Saturn for €266 ($329), and has an expected shipping delay for the next seven days or so. The device will shortly be making its way to the Netherlands (at €280/$346) and the U.S. sometime next month.
While all of the above releases are pertinent only to the Nokia 6 (2018) variant with 3GB RAM/32GB internal storage, the Netherlands will be among the first confirmed markets to see the release of the variant with 4GB RAM/64GB storage, priced here at €300 ($371).
