HMD has finally introduced the Nokia brand with the launch of Nokia 6 that went official early last month in China, and the company is expected to launch a range of Nokia branded smartphone at the MWC 2017 event that is going to kick start soon. One among them is the Nokia 8 which was in the news from past few days, thanks to various leaks. Today the device is being listed on JD.com in China and comes with a price tag of CNY 3,188, though the authenticity of this listing can’t be vouched for.
The listing reveals the renders of the Nokia 8 that comes with a bezel-less display sporting a 5.7-inches Quad HD SUPER AMOLED display and is said to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC with two different storage options. One with 64GB and the other with 128GB with a microSD card slot for memory expansion up to 256GB. It is expected to run on Android 7.0 Nougat right out of the box.
In the camera department, the device is supposed to feature a 24-megapixel rear camera with OIS, LED Flash and many other features and a 12-megapixel front camera for selfies and video calls. Apart from Nokia 8, HMD Global is expected to bring the refreshed model off the iconic Nokia 3310, though there is no credible report to support the rumor just yet. Other smartphones in their portfolio include a high-end Nokia P1 and budget-oriented Nokia 4 and Nokia 5.
Though these leaks and rumors are just meant to be taken with a pinch of salt until the company goes official with them. The HMD Global event is scheduled for February 26th at the 4:30 p.m. local time (9 pm IST) in Barcelona.
