It’s been quite a long time coming, I must say. After being all but acquired by Bill Gates’ Microsoft back in early 2014, Nokia’s mobile phone division suffered quite a setback with the (largely unsuccessful) line of Lumia phones. However, Nokia has made a return to the mobile manufacturing industry with a January 8th release of the Nokia 6.
Applause!! The Nokia 6 Sold Out In Seconds
Nokia 6 is being manufactured by HMD Global, but given the Nokia branding, it has seen tremendous popularity in China.
Nokia 6 has had two sales on China’s e-commerce portal JD.com and smartphone units were sold out within seconds, in both instances. This led to many thinking Nokia is going with the flash sale model for the sale of its smartphone. However, HMD Global’s communications team, in a statement to NokiaPowerUser, has said they are not following a flash sales model. Instead, the company replenished JD’s stocks three times, which got sold out within minutes. – Indian Express
This phone not only marked the return of Nokia into the mobile phone market, it also marked the first time that Nokia will be embracing the full Android OS package. With features such as a large 5.5-inch screen and 4G supports for both its SIM cards, the Nokia 6 is surely an awesome investment and shows good signs of things to come for Nokia. Below are the key specifications of the Nokia 6.

Nokia 6 Availability & Price In Nigeria
For all its specs and juice however, the Nokia 6 is still being released in China and India. However, many reports have suggested that release in the United States and other major European markets is scheduled for later this quarter. So, if you’re looking to purchase this impressive smartphone, you might want to hold on that investment for a while.
The Nokia 6 comes only in the Velvet Black color variant, so you might want to watch out for any fake replicas. Beyond that, it’s a truly awesome mobile phone. No price point in this region for now, sorry 🙁
