The Nokia 6 showed up in China in January, but now it's available in the US on The low-end phone has a retail price of $229, but if you want to subject yourself to Amazon's lock screen ads and offers, you can get the subsidized version for $179.99, as spotted by Phandroid.

The unlocked handset works on AT&T and T-Mobile. To get the discount you'll need to be an Amazon Prime member, and the Prime version also includes preinstalled Amazon apps and Prime services like Prime Music, Prime Photos storage, and of course Amazon Video. The best news, though, is you can always pay Amazon $50 to get rid of the ads if they’re bugging you.

If you spring for the $229 version, you get pure Android 7.1 with nothing on top. Not a bad deal for a Snapdragon 430 phone with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a 5.5-inch 1080p display. Just remember that this isn't your father's Nokia: the phone is built by HMD Global, who now owns the rights to Nokia phone branding.


Which version would you get, if you had to choose?
