Sad news for Nokia fans in the United States, as HMD has just confirmed that its flagship won't be launched in this region. Although previous reports from various sources suggested Nokia 8 might eventually be launched in the US, it appears that the smartphone hasn't been designed for this particular market.

However, not all is lost for US customers, as HMD plans to develop another portfolio of devices specifically built for this market. Some of these devices might be announced as early as Q1 2018 if we are to believe the latest rumors.

The HMD official who confirmed the information also said his company is already working on bringing a new set of devices to the US market, so don't fret just yet.

In the meantime, Nokia 8 is slowly making its way to more markets in Europe. HMD's flagship is priced decent enough (€550-€600) to compete with other major brands in the smartphone industry.
