As we all know that the recently announced Nokia 6 was aimed towards the mid range and the newly returned Nokia was still missing from the flagship market. Looks like that’s going to be changed soon as the brand seems to be gearing up for it’s 2017’s big release in the form of a flagship called Nokia 8.
Nokia P1 was the earlier touted name for the flagship but Nokia 8 seems more plausible after the company named its recent smartphone Nokia 6. Nokia 8 also makes more as all classic Nokia cameraphone flagships sported the eight in their names – think N82, N8 and 808PureView.
As reported, the Nokia 8 will come in two versions – one with a Snapdragon 835 chipset with 6GB RAM and a 24 MP OIS + EIS primary camera. A 12 MP selfie snapper and dual front-facing speaker are also on the cards. Storage is going to be 64GB or 128GB and there will be a microSD card slot for expanding that further.
The more affordable version will come with Snapdragon 821, a lesser but unspecified camera and 4GB of RAM. The two are actually shown side by side in the video.
It is believed to feature Carl Zeiss optics as some of the old-school Nokia devices. The prototypes also have a small rectangle with HRM written over it and we are guessing this is a heart rate monitor.
We also see there is no front-mounted physical buttons. We don’t know much about the build of the whole body but looking at the images of the camera on the back, Nokia is going for a unibody metal design like the mid-range Nokia 6.
