Nokia’s budget Android phone gets better

HMD Global is bringing the updated Nokia 6 to the US for $269.99, after launching it in China back in January, via Android Central. Listings for the phone appeared on Amazon and Walmart, however they appear to have gone live early, as it’s listed out of stock. Still, the phone’s presence on both sites suggests it’ll likely be available soon.

The original Nokia 6 marked the brand’s return to the US under the stewardship of HMD, albeit as a decidedly budget experience. The updated model looks to improve on the original in a number of ways, with a better Snapdragon 630 processor (instead of the Snapdragon 430 on the original), an upgrade from Micro USB to USB-C, and 4GB of RAM.

The rest of the 2018 model of the Nokia 6 remains more or less the same as last year’s version, with the same unibody aluminum design, chunky bezels, and poor camera.

Correction May 2nd, 4:15PM ET: This article originally said the Nokia 6 was now available, however the phone could not yet actually be purchased.
