After basking under rumor light for quite some time, Nokia’s flagship device will see the light of the day next month. To be precise, Nokia 8 will be released on August 16th, as per a latest report.
The report states that HMD Global has confirmed that it will unveil the Nokia 8 at an event in London on August 16th at 7.30pm UK time. In fact, the company has already sent out invites for an event to be held on the mentioned date.
Although the invite doesn’t categorically mention Nokia 8, it reads thus: HMD Global invites you to an exclusive gathering to unveil the next milestone for Nokia phones. This ‘milestone’, we believe points towards the company’s 2017 flagship smartphone, which is Nokia 8.
Nokia 8 is reported to sport a 5.3-inch QHD display bathed in a full metal body. It will be powered by a Snapdragon 835 chipset hooked on to 4GB or 6GB RAM and 64GB or 128GB of internal storage.
The main highlight of Nokia 8 is the 13MP dual camera setup on the back with Carl Zeiss lens while the front camera will be of 12MP. The phone could possibly flaunt an underglass fingerprint scanner just like Xiaomi Mi 6 and will be released in Blue, Black and Grey colors.
