It seems like HMD Global is having a hard time keeping up with the Nokia 6 demand. As you probably already know, the company has been selling the all-new Nokia-branded smartphone through flash sales in China after it was released in the country last month, or at least it seems like they were. The Nokia 6 had been available through JD.com (JingDong Mall) several times now, but HMD Global says those were not flash sales, the devices went out of stock really soon after they were made available even though they were available for open purchase. This is a rather odd thing to say considering that the device was available for pre-registrations several times now. In any case, it seems like quite a few people are still looking to buy this smartphone, despite the fact HMD Global sent more stock to JD.com on several occasions. Luckily for those consumers who are still planning to buy the Nokia 6, it seems like HMD Global is planning to send additional units to HMD Global really soon.
The company says that they sent more stock to JD.com more than three times now, but that was nowhere near enough to meet the demand. The Chinese New Year is now behind us, and HMD Global promises that new units are coming really soon, they event stated that new supplies are coming in the ‘coming days and weeks’, so if you’re interested in purchasing the Nokia 6 in China, you should definitely pay attention to the phone’s listing on JD.com, as that’s the only place you’ll be able to purchase this smartphone in the near future, at least officially. The device is priced at 1,699 Yuan ($250) through JD.com, and many people would argue that’s a solid price point for this handset, which has rather solid specifications despite the fact it’s fueled by an entry-level SoC.
The Nokia 6 comes with a 5.5-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) display, along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage. The device is fueled by the Snapdragon 430 64-bit octa-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz, along with the Adreno 505 GPU for graphics. A 16-megapixel snapper is placed on the back of this phone, and an 8-megapixel shooter is available on the device’s front side. Android 7.0 Nougat comes pre-installed on the Nokia 6, and there are two SIM card slots (2 x nano SIM) available inside of this phone. A non-removable 3,000mAh battery is also included here, and it comes with fast charging.
