Nokia to unveil flagship Android Phone August 16th

The Nokia 8 launch event on August 16 will put to rest all the speculation around the phone, which has been going around for quite some times now. With a multi-core score of 1146, the handset will be loaded with Android 7.1.1 Nougat. While the rejuvenated version is unlikely to achieve sales anywhere near that, there will likely be plenty of punters ready to go retro and shell out for the handset, which comes courtesy of Finnish firm HMD Global.

Meanwhile, Gizmochina reports that the phone could release in two different processor variants such as Snapdragon 212 and MediaTek depending upon the region. The listing shows the phone will be have 1GB RAM and a 1.27GHz quad-core processor, possibly Qualcomm's Snapdragon 210 chipset. According to Nokia Power User, the certification also revealed the 2G and 3G bands that will be supported by the new handset in the US.

Another poster was leaked last week by a tipster on Chinese website, Baidu. According to the recent leaked price of Nokia 8 also leaked and it was with a price tag of Euro 589 (approximately Rs.43,400).

The compact €149 5-inch Nokia 3 comes with an integrated 8MP wide-aperture lens front and back and a polarised screen making it ideal for bright light conditions. This means that the yet to-be-announced Nokia 2 may come with a display much smaller that 5-inch. This button is expected to act as a fingerprint scanner as well. Other the key difference between the two smartphones could be the positioning of the navigation buttons. HMD Global has recently started sending invites for the same. However, in Nokia 2 it was pushed upwards with thick bezels. If Nokia 8 will launch on August 16 as expected then it will probably launch in India after few months.
