The new variant will go on sale from Tuesday, February 20 and interested buyers can now go to the Nokia 6 (4GB) page on Flipkart to add themselves under 'Notify me' list. Notably, the Nokia 6 will be available in its Matte Black colour variant. Earlier, the Nokia 6 was available in a 3GB RAM variant, which HMD Global had launched back in January last year, alongside the Nokia 3 and Nokia 5.
