If you think that the all new Nokia 6 is a pretty cool smartphone, you haven’t seen anything, as the Finnish company is preparing to launch a spectacular new model, with flagship specs, during next month’s Mobile World Congress, in Barcelona.
To be more specific, we’re talking about the Nokia 8, which was initially teased at CES 2017 by Qualcomm, the chip manufacturer being the one providing the chips for these handsets. As We can see a latest leaked video, the flagship will be available in two variants!
One of these variants will be powered by the new Snapdragon 835 chip, alongside 6 GB of RAM, and feature 64 or 128 gigs of internal storage, with the possibility of expanding this, thanks to the presence of a microSD card slot.
And we’re not done yet, since this Nokia 8 model will also come with a pretty serious camera setup, rocking a 24 MP camera on the back, with both OIS and EIS 3.0, as well as Carl Zeiss lens, just like Nokia’s previous camera centered models, like the 808 PureView, for example.
Oh, and let’s not forget about the display, which should measure 5.7 inches and come with a QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, the fingerprint scanner, LED notification light and Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. Yeah, we’re talking about a flagship here! And a very interesting one, to be honest.
As for the second variant of the Nokia 8, it’s rumored to come with the same display size and pretty much same specs, except the processor and amount of RAM, being replaced by a Snapdragon 821 – still a beefy chip otherwise – and 4 GB of RAM. Also, the camera setup is still a mystery.
Considering that the Nokia 6 comes with a metal body, we don’t see why Nokia won’t use the same material for these two Nokia 8 smartphones. After all, the specs are way better, so metal would totally make sense.
Otherwise, except the launch date, which will most likely be somewhere at the end of February, after MWC opens its gates, there’s nothing about the price or availability, but we will be back with more details, as soon as anything new comes up!
