HMD Global carried out its Nokia 6 first ever flash sale in China, and as expected, the device ran out of stock within a minute. The Brand HMD is actually a group of former staff at Nokia, it was formed in May 2016. When Nokia sold Phone business rights to Microsoft, it did not work out quite well as Microsoft planned. Later, HMD brought back the part of the business sold to Microsoft.
Nokia 6 flash sale is not surprising, considering the fact that phone received over a million registrations for their first flash sale since January 4, 2017. However, the number of units sold out at Flash sale is unknown. This kind of support for the Nokia will boost confidence in HMD, resulting much more future effort in the brand who suffered a debacle in sales for almost a decade.
