Nokia 8 With Snapdragon 835 To Come In June In Two Sizes
Most fans of Nokia were thrilled with the new devices unveiled at the recently-concluded 2017 Mobile World Congress particularly with the return of the iconic Nokia 3310 albeit in a more modern take. However, some still wonder why the much-awaited high-end Nokia 8 was not introduced at the event. The wait may not take that too long anymore as rumors indicate that a June release is possible for the Nokia 8.
Recent rumors coming all the way from China say that the Nokia flagship smartphone will finally be launched in about three months time. HDMI Global, the company that is manufacturing the handsets for Nokia, suggested that a couple of Nokia 8 variants will be unveiled in June. The rumor also indicated that both "small and "big" Nokia flagship devices will run on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor. The smaller Nokia 8 will come with 4GB of RAM and will cost 4,000 Yuan or roughly $580. The larger model will have 6GB of RAM and a price tag of 4,500 Yuan or around $650.
GSM Arena points out that the Nokia 8 will no longer use PureView cameras because of Microsoft as well as Carl Zeiss, which Nokia Mobile confirmed before in a tweet. The good news, though, is that both smartphones will have 23MP cameras at the least. Both models will also come in metal unibodies.
Nokia made a little noise during the CES 2017 held in January after rumors surfaced saying the company unveiled a mystery Nokia device. The hullabaloo actually started when a video blogger claimed that the Nokia 8 was used to demonstrate the Snapdragon 821 and Snapdragon 835 at the Qualcomm booth. Qualcomm has since denied using the yet-to-be-revealed Nokia flagship smartphone saying it used its own reference design for the tests and that the company does not disclose details of their reference hardware.
