High-end Nokia 8 allegedly coming soon, could cost less than $600
After launching the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, and Nokia 6, HMD Global is now (seemingly) getting ready to introduce at least one higher-end Android smartphone. Recently, we heard that a Nokia 8 and a Nokia 9 might be around the corner, and now we're learning that only one of these models may be released in the near future: the Nokia 8.

According to German website WinFuture (usually a reliable source), the Nokia 8 has the model number TA-1004. Not long ago, it's been assumed that the TA-1004 would be launched as the Nokia 9, but WinFuture has it that the phone's final name should be Nokia 8.

The Nokia 8 is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, further featuring 4 GB of RAM, dual SIM support, and 64 GB of internal memory. The handset likely sports a Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display of at least 5.3 inches, and could have a Zeiss-branded camera.

Reportedly, the Nokia 8 will be available in four color variants - blue, steel, gold blue, and gold copper - and should cost a bit under €600 in Europe (almost certainly, this would mean under $600 in the US).

A couple of months ago, a leaked video may have shown the Nokia 8, or at least an early version of it. More exactly, the Nokia 8 could be the handset seen on the left in this image (note the existence of a dual rear camera):


It's said that the Nokia 8 will be released in Europe as soon as late July. If that's the case, we could see the new smartphone being officially announced in less than two weeks' time. Meanwhile, of course, we must keep in mind that, right now, nothing about the Nokia 8 is confirmed.
