HMD Global, the company with the license to sell Nokia-branded products, has already introduced its first range of smartphones, the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6, that are set to go on sale later this year. The company is also expected to unveil more smartphones this year and that includes its flagship device.
It seems the Nokia 8 is the latest of a number of devices said to sport a 2560×1440 5.7-inch display powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 835 SoC. The Snapdragon SoC is an octa-core 2.45GHz CPU coupled with 6GB of 1866MHz LPDDR4 and includes 128GB of storage capacity. The screen is wrapped with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and the sensors on the cameras are 24MP and 12MP. Its features include a heart rate sensor, fingerprint reader, stereo speakers, and a GPS. The upcoming Nokia device seems to follow Apple's lead in audio jack, by using a USB type-C connector. More so, Nokia also sells a nifty wireless headset which should go well together. Nokia/HMD Global seem to remain true to its motto "pure Android experience" with this flagship, as for the operating system, it will surely run Android Nougat out of the box.
The new Nokia device has not been revealed yet, however, reports claim it is expected to launch around June. Nokia 8 is said to come in two size variants; a smaller and larger model price tag between $$580-650. Furthermore, the upcoming Nokia 8 is most likely to feature a dual camera set up.
