Nokia 6 (2018) lands in the US at Walmart and Amazon

The Nokia 6 (2018) was a China exclusive at launch, with nostalgic American fans of the model's brand name (Nokia) anticipating its arrival in their country. Well, the wait is over; the time has come.

The Nokia 6 (2018) has landed in the US today at Walmart ($276) and Amazon ($270), though you'll have to purchase it through a third-party seller (BREED) at Walmart. Walmart is only offering the 32GB storage configuration, while Amazon is offering the 64GB storage option.

The Nokia 6 (2018) features the same 5.5-inch IPS Full HD (1080p) display as its predecessor with the same 16:9 aspect ratio, though the home button on the front of last year's model has been moved to the back on the Nokia 6 (2018). You'll get the same cameras on the front and back (8MP, f/2.0 and 16MP, f/2.0, respectively) and the Carl Zeiss optics for which Nokia's old Windows-powered Lumias were renown, with an additional microphone for HMD's new OZO Audio.

The drawbacks in all of this are that there's one less speaker to enjoy in HMD Global's 2018 offering and the 3,000mAh battery remains the same.

Other features of the Nokia 6 (2018) include USB Type-C charging, fast charging, 3.5mm headphone jack, and a Dual Sight (or Bothie) Mode for simultaneous front and rear camera video recording. Though running Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box, the phone has been upgraded to Android 8.1 Oreo a few days ago, with the 801.4 MB update bringing a revamped power menu, Bluetooth battery percentage, and the April 2018 security patch.

If interested, head on over to Amazon and Walmart and check it out. Let us know if you've been waiting for the Nokia 6.
