HMD Global has launched the Nokia 6 4GB RAM variant in India today. This new variant is currently listed on Flipkart, and it will be available in Matte Black colour. Earlier, the device was available with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which was launched last year in January along with the Nokia 3 and Nokia 5. Regardless of 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage, there’s no other change in this new smartphone.

Nokia 6: Pricing and Availability

As mentioned above, the Nokia 6 (review) 4GB RAM variant will only be available in Black. Moreover, the phone will only be available through Flipkart for Rs. 16,999. The company is also offering an additional exchange discount of Rs. 2,000. Given the price of the device and increased RAM, the Nokia 6 will now compete with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro which was launched in India yesterday as well as with the Motorola Moto G5s Plus.

Nokia 6: Features

The Nokia 6 features a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display with Full-HD screen resolution (1080×1920 pixels). The screen is laminated with Corning Gorilla Glass panel for protection against scratches.

Nokia has already rolled out Android 8.0 Oreo beta update to the 3GB RAM variant of the phone.
