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.

Now this is all kinds of awesome. A Nokia 8 variant with 6 gigs of RAM and 128 on the ROM will be a wonderful addition to what the Nokia 8 currently has. Great way to future-proof the device. Definitely looking forward getting one, even more now.

Screen is too small.

The huge bezels are to blame.

That can’t be it. The iPhone 8 has huge bezels, and it’s screen looks larger than the one on the iPhone X, and the X is the larger phone.

This isn't even about the iPhone. I never said anything nor inferred anything about the iPhone. Now leave me alone and begone.

Lol, I never said or inferred that you did say anything about the iPhone. All I did was disprove your theory. Now stop trolling or you’ll have this new faux account of yours gone for the same reasons that your Flash account is now gone.

I don't know if Nokia 9 will be released in the US soon, but I prefer to get that one.

I’ll be honest John, I want them both. I’m really happy with what Nokia has been doing with their handsets as of late.

They should have released that model instead of flooding the market with the numerous other Nokia phones. I suppose they will turn to letters next after running out of numbers.

Releasing close to the Pixel 2 launch is going to spell disaster. Nokia should have released the high end one instead.

The Pixel 2 won’t do any damage to Nokia 8 sales.

Why are you responding to me? You're done, remember? It's my opinion, so seek your entertainment elsewhere.

Lol, it’s an open forum, and I stated my opinion, same as you did. You were “done” too, remember? Why are you back if your Flash account was banned?
