While Nokia is all set to launch a series of smartphones in MWC 17, new leaks of every upcoming Nokia device are found everyday. Although the company has not mentioned officially about its upcoming, Nokia 8, it was leaked on a Chinese online retailer Jingdong.com. The listing included images of the device which shows an almost bezelless design.
While the device looks extremely impressive, at the back we can see a camera outlet similar to the Nokia Lumia 1020. If the leak is to be believed, the device has no signs of fingerprint scanner. Also the device specification mentioned in the listing, shows “No fingerprint support.”
The Nokia 8 is listed for pre-sale on the popular e-commerce hub but the listing is a third party listing and the flagship carries a price tag of 3,188 Yuan ($463). The listing also did not state when the flagship would hit the shelves.
While it’s hard to believe if the listing of the device is about Nokia 8 or P1 as the device looks very much similar to leaked renders of the P1. Thus, it is unlikely that this is a genuine listing. We still don’t have any real live image confirming what the device looks like and it is doubtful if it would look like the concept.
As far as the specifications go, Nokia 8 would be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 chip. It would pack a Snapdragon 821 chip. The Nokia 8 is expected to have a large 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with QHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution. The display is a flat-screen and not a curved display like the current flagships. Further, the device is also said to sport a powerful 24MP rear camera with OIS, and super EIS. There is also a 12MP sensor up front for selfie snapshots. On the memory aspect, the Nokia 8 is rumored to pack just two storage versions, one with 64GB storage and another with 128GB storage, both of which are expandable via microSD up to 256GB. It is expected that the Nokia P1 or 8 will come pre-installed with Android 7.0 Nougat since the Nokia 6 ships with Google’s latest mobile OS.
