The Nokia 6 is one of the best phones in its class, however, HMD Global’s initial asking price of Ksh 25,000 somehow put off some potential buyers.
On the brighter side, Safaricom’s Masoko, which went live a few days ago, has a small discount on the phone to kick off its online campaign. Right now, the Nokia 6 can be yours for Ksh 22,999, but this gets you the base model of 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. With this deal, you’ll be saving a cool Ksh 2,000, which is a good way to kick off the weekend, if you ask me.
We don’t know whether this is a permanent price cut, but just to be safe, you’d be better off grabbing it while it lasts. This is the cheapest price I’ve seen for the Nokia 6 so far, which could also mean things could get even better for buyers in the near future, especially with the Christmas shopping season just around the corner.
Just so you know what you are getting into, the Nokia 6 ships with a 5.5-inch LCD display screen with a full HD resolution and Gorilla Glass 3 on top. Under the hood, there’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor clocked at 1.4GHz and as noted, you get 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, which can be expanded via a microSD card of up to 256GB. The back camera has a decent 16MP lens with dual-tone LED flash and PDAF while the front has an 8MP unit with autofocus and shares the same f/2.0 aperture and 1080p video recording features as the main shooter.
The Nokia 6 runs Android Nougat out of the box, but an update to Android Oreo is not so far away. Keeping it alive is a 3000mAh battery unit that supports fast charging. You also get a front-mounted fingerprint scanner and a 3.5mm audio jack.
