Nokia 6 (2018) was launched in India for Rs. 16,999. The device was launched along with the Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 8 Sirocco smartphones. Soon after the launch of this device, there were speculations that a high-end variant with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage space will be launched in the country. There were speculations that the new Nokia 6 with 4GB RAM could be priced at Rs. 18,999.
After a month's time, there seems to be some confirmation regarding this handset. The Nokia Mobile India handle has posted a tweet teasing the new Nokia 6 with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage space. The tweet by the company leaves hints such as "up your pace" and "with even more space" pointing out at the higher RAM and storage capacity.
Going by a listing on Amazon India, the upgraded model will go on sale from May 13. The listing has the Notify Me button for those who are interested in buying it. As mentioned above, it is expected to be priced around Rs. 18,999. However, we need to wait for an official confirmation from the company regarding the same.
This variant was announced at the MWC 2018 tech show in late February but it did not make its way to the Indian market. Only the 3GB RAM and 32GB storage variant was available in the country. Like the other Nokia smartphones, we can expect this one to also be made available via the online and offline channels such as Nokia Mobile online store, Reliance Digital, Croma, Sangeetha, Poorvika, etc.
