If you were wondering that Nokia 6 was going out of stock because it was sold via flash sales, then you are wrong. HMD Global who is basically selling Nokia branded smartphones have confirmed to Nokia Power User that the device is not being sold out via flash sales rather it has been just available twice in China. Due to an overwhelming response, Nokia 6 is being sold out within minutes indicating a possibility of being sold via flash sales on JD.com.
HMD Global told Nokia Power User that – “Actually we have been updating the inventory on JD.com more than 3 times but those were usually gone within minutes or hours, so that’s why you have the impression that we were doing flash sales,”
“We will keep supply to JD for sure and now the Chinese New Year holiday is mostly over and everybody’s back for work, you can expect more supplies in the coming days and weeks,”
Nokia 6 has been on everybody’s mind ever since it was launched. The first time the device was made available, it went out of stock within one minute. The second time it came back in stock, HMD Global claimed to have received about 1.4 million registrations.
