It’s been almost eight months since HMD Global first introduced the Nokia 8.1 to the world and that means a successor shouldn’t be too far away. According to MySmartPrice, the company is actively developing the smartphone right now and, if everything goes to plan, it could introduce some rather drastic changes.

After fully embracing the notch on last year’s model, HMD Global reportedly has plans to ditch the controversial design feature in favor of one that’s slightly less intrusive. Specifically, the Nokia 8.2 will apparently represent the company’s first smartphone with a pop-out camera system. This will house a new 32-megapixel selfie camera and ultimately remove the need for any kind of notch or cut-out on the display, thus creating an all-screen design. 

In regards to the smartphone’s internal characteristics, today’s report points towards the presence of 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage as standard. The Nokia 8.2’s processor wasn’t mentioned but previous leaks suggest a Snapdragon 700 series chip could make the cut alongside support for next-generation wireless networks in an attempt to produce a cheaper 5G device.

Accompanying all of this will reportedly be stock Android 10 Q straight out of the box as part of the Android One program. The final version of this software is on track for release in mid-August which suggests HMD Global’s next Nokia-branded smartphone probably won’t arrive until September at the very earliest.

Sweet! Looks like HMD is stepping it up with their midrange offerings. Should this turn out to be true, this will be one to add to my smartphone collection.

This looks like a good phone, but Nokia has once again chosen to use a silly camera gimmick.

This is a great looking smartphone, and the pop out camera will allow for more screen real estate. Funny how those attacking HMD for using this and calling it a gimmick have never said the same about others who use the same pop out camera on their smartphones, like OnePlus. Pure hypocrisy.

I take it you're not so subtlety referring to my comment, so I'm going to rip and dissect your comment to pieces. For the record, I'm not attacking anything. I can disagree with something they are doing and you can't tell me otherwise. This has nothing to do with the OnePlus Pro which was brought up by you.

Lmao you couldn’t rip half torn wet paper bag to pieces, much less my comment. I never mentioned your name, so this is your own guilty conscious talking. Second, you are always attacking anything that you don’t favor, especially HMD/Nokia, BlackBerry, Huawei and LG. It’s what you’re known for on this site, and everyone knows it, and you can’t tell me otherwise. I brought up the OnePlus 7 Pro specifically to point out your hypocrisy, which I have successfully done, and will continue to do so.

Nokia phones have a quality issue with the USB port coming loose. Do a search for "Nokia USB port loose" and you'll see quite a number of people have complained about it. You might want to wait and see if Nokia has fixed it before buying any phones from them.

I actually have seen multiple reports of that happening. Thankfully it has not happened to my 7.1, but I don't use it enough because it's not my daily driver.

This issue does not affect all Nokia smartphones, but I will tell you what affects every smartphone named Pixel that Google puts out: the well documented issues and bugs.
