According to the latest data, the release date of Nokia 8 is scheduled for August 16, 2017. The presentation of the new flagship of the revived brand and other novelties from HMD Global will be held in London. The event starts at 19:30 GMT.
The first buyers of Nokia 8 will be residents of European countries who will be able to pre-order the day after the official announcement of the smartphone.
It is reported that in the euro area countries the cost of Nokia 8 will be about 520 euros for the base version, which has 4 GB of RAM and a built-in storage capacity of 64 GB. As for the price and in general the possibility of an “extended” modification of 6 Gb RAM + 128 Gb Flash, then we will know about it, most likely, only at the presentation.
According to the latest leaks, the flagship Nokia may be the first smartphone that will get Android 8.0.0 Oreo (probable name) out of the box. Also, insiders have repeatedly pointed to the presence of optics from Carl Zeiz in the double main camera of the “eight”.
In the rest, Nokia 8 is quite typical flagship of 2017: chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, 5.3-inch screen with QHD resolution of 1440 × 2560 pixels, thin metal case. True, the battery is scheduled quite decent – 4000 mAh.
If you describe the novelty shortly, then it is quite a decent top-end smartphone for not the highest price. Slightly better than the “Chinese” Xiaomi Mi 6 and OnePlus 5, slightly worse than stuffed with all sorts of modern technologies Samsung Galaxy S8.
We can say this: during the return of the legendary Finnish brand to the market, a miracle did not happen. Most of Nokia’s audience has already switched to other brands. And even among those who still do not part with their “luminescence”, there will not be many people wishing to buy Nokia 8.
