NOKIA 8 SPECIFICATIONS, PRICING AND LAUNCH DATE
So, without any doubt, this phone is all set to give competition to all the latest flagship and premium smartphones of this year. As per the leak via Roland Quandt, the Nokia 8 packs a Snapdragon 835 processor, clocked at 2.45GHz It is the same device that appeared on benchmarking platforms with the model number HMD Global TA-1004. There aren’t many details about the specs, but it is revealed that the phone has 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage.It is expected that Nokia 8 will feature 5.7-inch Quad-HD Display, but we doubt this, and there are chances that it is the Nokia 9 with this much big screen. Lastly, the phone will come in three different color options – blue, steel (silver), gold/blue, and gold/copper.
Now let’s talk about the price. Well, the Nokia 8 will retail for €598 or approx $686 or 4652 Yuan. Well, this isn’t cheap for sure, and we never expected it to be cheap as we all know Nokia 6 is also slightly overpriced for the specifications it offers. Talking about the launch date, the Nokia 8 will be available for purchase from 31st July, so it won’t be wrong to say that the phone is launching before the end of July.
The Nokia 8 was revealed a few months back via a video that showed four smartphones from Nokia despite the fact that the company has launched only three at the moment. What are our views on this new leak? Do let us know via the comments section.
