HMD Global hosted a first Nokia 6 flash sale in China earlier today, and the company managed to sell out every single device they had in stock in just one minute. The phone was available exclusively through JingDong Mall (JD.com) in China, and the company had received over 1 million pre-registrations for the first flash sale (1,337,773, to be exact). Well, the consumers quickly grabbed every single one Nokia 6 units that was available, though we do not know how many units HMD Global had in stock to sell. The company will probably not release such an info, but it’s always a possibility.
Consumers in China were able to purchase the Nokia 6 for 1,699 Yuan ($248), which might seem a lot to some of you who considering that this device comes with an entry-level processor, but the rest of its specs are really solid, and so is the device’s build quality. The Nokia 6 will, once again, be available through JD.com soon, the second flash sale will take place next week probably, at least that’s what reports are saying, JD.com did not announce the official date yet. The Nokia 6 was officially introduced earlier this month, and it is the first Nokia-branded smartphone to be released by HMD Global since the company purchased Nokia branding rights from Microsoft.
