The Finnish company that licensed the rights to produce Nokia phones called HMD Global, is bringing back the Zeiss branding on Nokia-branded phones, and we are yet to see the Nokia 8 later this month. WinFuture has reported that HMD will launch a Nokia 8 handset on July 31st, with dual-cameras. Both cameras are said to be 13 megapixels and include Carl Zeiss optics.
Among other feature sets, the Nokia 8 is also expected to feature a 5.3-inch display (2560 x 1440), a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB or 6GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and dual-SIM models. There is even a leaked photo of the Nokia 8 in a blue variant (featured image), but the phone is also expected to debut in silver and gold versions.
This appears to be HMD’s high-end Nokia-branded device, and will likely ship with a pure version of Android 7.1.1 Nougat which is a good thinf. It seems that HMD is sticking with physical keys and larger display bezels for its Nokia-branded flagship device. That could make the Nokia 8 a hard sell against the Samsung Galaxy S8 and other similar Android-powered handsets, but pricing could make up for the design elements.
