Amazon Prime Members Can Preorder the Nokia 6 Today for $50 Discount

While it might be a little past its prime now, the running gag about Nokia phones never breaking was one of the internet's favorite jokes. "If you buy one," they would say, "you'll never need another phone again." I think if those users could see into the future, they'd change their tune, as the Nokia 6 is now available to preorder — and I'm guessing it would give any of Nokia's old bricks a run for their money.

We knew already knew about Nokia's latest smartphone's potential to reach US shores, but now, that news is confirmed — starting today, you can preorder the Nokia 6, which will ship July 10.

It is a mid-range smartphone, so don't expect it to perform as well as say a Samsung Galaxy S8 or iPhone 7. Still, it has some decent specs: a Snapdragon 430 chipset with an octacore 1.4 GHz CPU and 505 GPU powers the phone, which pairs nicely with 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable storage, and a 1920 x 1080 FHD display made from Gorilla Glass 3. Not bad at all.

It seems like an even sweeter deal when you hear the price — has exclusivity to US sales at the moment, and is selling the phone for $229 for all colors and versions. But, if you are an Amazon Prime member, that price goes down to just $179 for the ad-supported models, which is kind of unbelievable (if you don't mind ads). If you're not an Amazon Prime member, you can get a 30-day free trial.

So, if you're still rocking a Nokia from the 2000s, or you're just in the market for an affordable, mid-range smartphone, consider the Nokia 6, especially if you're on Prime.

Just don't drop it. I think that internet joke died for a reason.

Hot Deal: Set up a secure second phone number and keep your real contact details hidden with a yearly subscription to Hushed Private Phone Line for Android/iOS, 83%–91% off. It's a perfect second-line solution for making calls and sending texts related to work, dating, Craigslist sales, and other scenarios where you wouldn't want to give out your primary phone number.
