Nokia 6 available for pre-order through Amazon Prime Exclusive along with Alcatel Idol 5S, more


One day after it was announced that the Nokia 6 would be launching in the U.S. in early July, Amazon has begun taking pre-orders for both the Nokia 6 and a few other Android devices.

The Nokia 6 is now available for pre-order from Amazon, along with the all-new Alcatel Idol 5S, Alcatel A50, Alcatel A30 Plus, and Moto E4. All five phones are now part of Amazon’s Prime Exclusive program, which gives Prime members the option of getting a discount on their new phone in exchange for viewing lock screen offers and ads on their device.

Pricing for the Nokia 6 in the Prime Exclusive program is $179.99, while the standard model is $229.99. The phone will launch on July 10th, and when it does, it’ll be unlocked.


Meanwhile, the Alcatel Idol 5S is a new Android 7.1 phone that features a 5.2-inch 1920×1080 display, 12-megapixel rear camera with phase detection autofocus, and an 8-megapixel front camera. Also included is a Snapdragon 625 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a microSD slot, dual speakers, a fingerprint reader, and a 2620mAh battery. Alcatel says that the Idol 5S supports VoLTE on T-Mobile, too.

The Idol 5S is priced at $199.99 in the Prime Exclusive program or $279.99 for the standard model. Both will ship on July 10th.


Alcatel also announced two more affordable Android phones today. The Alcatel A50 is $99.99 Prime Exclusive and $149.99 standard and features a 5.2-inch 1280×720 display, MediaTek 6738 processor, 13-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras, and support for T-Mobile’s VoLTE network.


And then there’s the Alcatel A30 Plus, which is $79.99 Prime Exclusive and $129.99 standard and includes a 5.5-inch 1280×720 display, 13-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras, and MediaTek 6738 processor.


Rounding out the new additions to Amazon’s Prime Exclusive program is the Moto E4. It’s priced at $99.99 for the Prime Exclusive model and $129.99 for the standard edition, and it’s packing Android 7.1, a 5-inch 1280×720 display, Snapdragon 425, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a microSD slot a fingerprint reader, and 8-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras.

Like the Nokia 6, all three new Alcatel phones will launch on July 10th. The Moto E4 will arrive a bit sooner, with its launch scheduled for June 30th.

    I pre-ordered my Nokia 6 today. Anyone who has never ordered a Prime Edition phone should know that the ads aren’t even noticeable once you get used to it. I swipe to unlock so fast I never actually see them. For the $50 in savings I think it’s worth it. Also, my Moto G4 has been kept up to date with software updates.

    • riverhorse

      I agree. Just too bad it’s only the 32gb version.

      • Acdc1a

        The micro SD is better than nothing…

    • Bluegrapes

      The prime ads version kinda sucks with phones with fingerprint scanners like the Moto G5 Plus because you’re forced to unlock it twice if you plan on using the fingerprint scanner. You can’t go straight to the homescreen like with the non-ad version because Amazon wants to make sure you see the ad.

      That’s why I priced match the Amazon subsidized price of the Moto G5 Plus at Best Buy and got the non-ad version for only $240.

      • That’s really good to know (about the double-scan of fingerprint.)

      • Acdc1a

        That would probably be irritating. I use a design as I’ve not found a fingerprint reader that I like. My S7 Edge was the closest to usable…and it still wouldn’t work fast or right at least 1/3 of the time.


        One thing a lot of people forget is these phones with Amazon ads can potentially make users spend money by buying products they don’t need by seeing an ad. Ads sometimes are not easy to ignore. Kind of like shopping for groceries when you are hungry. You will walk out the store with more than you need

  • Richard Darrington

    I hate ads

    • Acdc1a

      Then pony up the extra $30 to $70. No big deal either way.

    • dtam

      I wonder how difficult it will be to flash the regular ROM on it

  • Eric Harlow

    Hows the rear camera for the Nokia 6? I am looking for a cell phone that takes quality pictures, but doesn’t break the bank.

    • PiCASSiMO

      from gsmarena:

      “Image quality isn’t all that great. Detail is decent, but there’s a noticeable softness in the corners. Colors are much too dull – that’s one of the blandest reds we’ve seen recently. The photos are very flat and lacking in contrast too. You could, of course, achieve more ‘pop’ in post processing, but we feel like you shouldn’t have to for the photos from your phone’s camera.

      On the front there’s an 8MP selfie camera that’s actually got larger pixels – 1.12µm. The lens has an f/2.0 aperture too, but there’s no autofocus here.

      The selfies may not be spectacular, but they’re good enough. The plane of focus is slightly closer to the phone than this reviewer’s arm’s length, but people with longer reach can hold the phone closer, while the opposite isn’t true. The amount of resolved detail is about average, but the colors are, again, very subdued.”

      • Eric Harlow

        thank you!

  • All the phones launching on the same date will be really competitive. But I feel that Nokia 6 will have a little edge as because of its brand value.


      Actually Nokia today is not td Nokia. This Nokia is owned by the Chinese which to me is just like any other Chinese phone with the name Nokia. I would get a Motorola before today’s Nokia

      • ProudPapa

        Actually, it is not owned by a chinese firm, it is owned by HMD Global, which is a Finnish company founded by former employees of Nokia. They do however contract with Foxconn to build their phones, which many other companies do as well.

  • Quailallstar

    Does the Nokia 6 by chance have wifi calling? I’m also looking at the Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra. Need a nice replacement for my aging Nexus 6. Anyone have any recommendations on unlocked phones that supper wifi calling?

    • Acdc1a

      According to Nokia it will support both voice over LTE and wifi calling.

      • Quailallstar

        That’s comforting about VOLTE & WiFi Calling on TMO.

        My only two gripes with this phone are A.) Screen size too small for me; B.) This is somewhat of a downgrade coming from a NEXUS 6.

        Decisions decisions… Now, if the rumored NOKIA 9 was a 6 inch phone – then NOKIA would have my undivided attention.

        • Acdc1a

          I ordered it and I use the Nexus 6. You have to know that the Snapdragon 430 benchmarks pretty well compared the 808 and it’s much more efficient with the battery. I’m not sure it’s the downgrade you think it will be. I’d gladly trade in a little bit on the processor for a lot on the battery.

        • Quailallstar

          Now that’s great to know! I would be curious to hear your feedback one you receive the NOKIA 6. I just cant get past the 5.5inch screen when I’ve become so used to using close to 6 incher for over three years. Have you looked at the Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra? A little more money, has 6 inch screen but no one knows if it supports VOLTE or TMO wifi calling.

        • Jared Hylton

          I’ve been very curious about the XA1, and XA1 Ultra as well — has anyone hit up T-Mo on Twitter to see if they’re going to support VoLTE and WiFi Calling at any time on that device? It has band 66 support, which will be coming in handy soon.

        • Quailallstar

          I just sent @TMobile a tweet asking just that. Hope they respond.

        • steveb944

          Personally I’d go for the HTC U11 to not lose great front facing speakers.

        • Quailallstar

          I am not going to spend $600+ on a phone. Sorry.

        • steveb944

          Well it’s $599. But seriously speaking OnePlus is an option, otherwise:

  • Nokia phones are coming with very awesome build quality and would rate nokia 5 out of 4.8 this time for their quality product.

  • steveb944

    The Moto E4 and possibly Nokia are the best offerings. I can’t recommend Alcatel for anyone.
