Nokia 8 most likely to come to the US, and with more RAM and storage

HMD did not specify whether or not the Nokia 8 will be launched in the United States. However, the Finnish company did say that its flagship will “roll out globally this month.”

The Nokia 8 is already available for purchase in select markets, but HMD seems to be pushing this one out on the market in waves. The good news is the high-end smartphone is expected to make its debut in the United States as well, even if HMD has yet to make it official.

Two Nokia 8 models, different than the one that's now available in Europe, have been recently spotted at FCC (Federal Communications Commission), which suggests the smartphone will soon be introduced in the United States.

The two Nokia 8 variants, TA-1004 and TA-1012, pack more memory inside than the regular version that's now on sale in some European countries. Nokia 8 usually comes equipped with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory, but the US variant (if this is indeed the US model) will include 6GB RAM and 128GB ROM.

Aside from increasing the amount of memory, HMD also added ANT+ support and WCDMA Band IV. The former allows Nokia 8 users to monitor fitness and health data in real-time, as well as other sport-related information.

It's quite possible that the Nokia 8 will make its debut in the US in the second half of October, as the third wave of countries is expected to get the phone around that timeframe.
