The Nokia 6 was announced for the US earlier this week, due to arrive on Amazon. Now, Amazon has now announced it as a Prime Exclusive smartphone - which means it will show offers and ads - featuring a $50 (roughly Rs. 3,200) discount on its price tag. Apart from the Nokia 6, the Moto E4 was also announced as a Prime Exclusive.
The Nokia 6 will be available at $229 (roughly Rs. 14,800) in the US through Amazon for non-Prime members, but Prime members can choose to grab it for $179 (roughly Rs. 11,500) only, complete with offers and ads. Similarly, Moto’s recently announced Moto E4 16GB will be offered at $99.99 (roughly Rs. 6,400) for Prime members ($30 off the full retail price). Verizon still gives you to best price at $69 (roughly Rs. 4,500), but you’re locked on to Verizon with that deal. Both the smartphones are up for pre-order, and the Moto E4 will be shipped on June 30, while the Nokia 6 will be shipped on July 10.
