A minute after the orders have opened for the anticipated Nokia 6, all stocks of HMD Global’s latest offering has been sold out. The exclusive retailer, JD.com, has become a witness for the demand for Nokia’s new device. It received over a million registrations for its first sale on Thursday. The exact number of units sold wasn’t revealed, and the date of the next flash sale has yet to be announced.
Also, the retailer was told not to ship the device anywhere outside the country.
The new smartphone features 64GB of internal memory, a 16MP rear-facing camera, 8MP front, a Snapdragon 430 and 4GB of RAM.
HMD Global (current owner of the Nokia brand) plans to unveil seven more devices this year at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) at Barcelona, including the flagship Nokia P1 device.
“The brand is known for simplicity, ease of use, reliability, and quality. These are the elements that we will deliver together with amazing industrial design,” Nokia’s CEO of HMD global Arto Nummela said.
In 2013, Nokia sold its mobile division for nearly $7.2 billion to Microsoft. Under the deal, Nokia was prohibited from using its brand name on handsets until the end of 2016.
Microsoft sold the Nokia brand to HMD Global and Foxconn for $350 million after the company saw a 46 percent drop in phone revenue in the last quarter.
