The Android Powered Nokia 6 White Color Variant Is Not Coming


Highlights

  • HMD Global has denied Philippines availability
  • No White Nokia 6 version on sale
  • Nokia 6 smartphone is exclusive to Chinese market

Nokia 6, which was sold out in a minute in the first flash sale, is indeed exclusive to China, despite it appearing on an e-commerce website in the Philippines. HMD Global has also denied, in a way, that there is a White version of the smartphone.

Recently, several media publications claimed that the Nokia 6 smartphone was available to buy via a third-party online retailer in Philippines and come in a brand new White version. It turns out that the Nokia 6 smartphone being sold via Lazada platform is not from an authorized seller.

Regarding the Nokia 6 unit being sold in Philippines, HMD Global – which owns rights to the Nokia brand, has reached out to several media publications denying the existence of the smartphone. “We haven’t launched Nokia 6 in Philippines market. The seller is a third-party retailer on Lazada platform and is not an authorized seller,” told Communications Director of HMD Global to GSMArena.

Soon after the news broke out, Philippines-based Lazada online retailer has removed the Nokia 6 White variant and replaced it with a Black color. To recall, HMD Global launched the Nokia 6 smartphone earlier this month at CNY 1,699 (roughly Rs. 17,000) in China. Last week, Nokia 6 received tremendous response from consumers in China in its first flash sale as the smartphone reportedly went out of stock in a minute.

For the upcoming MWC 2017, HMD Global has already slotted an event at the trade show, where it is expected to announce few more Nokia-Android phones. According to the official invite, the Nokia event will take place in Barcelona on February 26, and it will kick off at 4:30pm local time (9pm IST). The company has been rumored to launch up to seven Nokia Android phones this year, apart from feature phones sporting Nokia branding.
