Nokia began building Android smartphones with the Nokia name, fans of the storied brand have been waiting for the company to introduce a true flagship class device. And here it is Nokia 8.
A followup to HMD’s introductory collection, which featured the Nokia 3, 5, and 6, the Nokia 8 takes most of its design cues from that triumvirate. It’s leaked once before in a promotional video back in May, although it was both light on design details and lacking a definitive identity at that point.
Rumor sais it will be announcing this Android 7.1.1 Nougat-powered phone on July 31, that seems like a distinct possibility.
According to various benchmarking apps, the 5.3-inch Nokia 8 is indeed well-speced, sporting a Snapdragon 835 chipset, QHD resolution, either 4GB or 6GB of RAM, and a pair of main cameras offering 13 megapixel resolutions and Carl Zeiss optics like Nokia Lumia before.
