After launching the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, and Nokia 6, HMD Global is now (seemingly) getting ready to introduce at least one higher-end Android smartphone. Recently, we heard that a Nokia 8 and a Nokia 9 might be around the corner, and now we’re learning that only one of these models may be released in the near future: the Nokia 8.
According to German website WinFuture (usually a reliable source), the Nokia 8 has the model number TA-1004. Not long ago, it’s been assumed that the TA-1004 would be launched as the Nokia 9, but WinFuture has it that the phone’s final name should be Nokia 8.
The Nokia 8 is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, further featuring 4 GB of RAM, dual SIM support, and 64 GB of internal memory. The handset likely sports a Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display of at least 5.3 inches, and could have a Zeiss-branded camera.
Reportedly, the Nokia 8 will be available in four color variants – blue, steel, gold blue, and gold copper – and should cost a bit under €600 in Europe (almost certainly, this would mean under $600 in the US).
A couple of months ago, a leaked video may have shown the Nokia 8, or at least an early version of it. More exactly, the Nokia 8 could be the handset seen on the left in this image (note the existence of a dual rear camera):
