The Nokia 8 is available to buy starting today (in select markets)


As of today, September 6, the Nokia 8 flagship smartphone is available to buy in select markets around the world. More exactly, for now, we're only seeing the handset as being available (unlocked) in Germany and Australia, though customers in other markets should find it in stock online, or on shelves in retail stores, pretty soon, too.

In Germany, the Nokia 8 costs €579 - the equivalent or around $690 USD - and comes with a free 64 GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC card (that's if you're ordering the phone through Amazon). In Australia, the new smartphone can be bought from retailers JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman - both are selling the Nokia 8 for $799 AUD (about $719 USD).

Officially announced last month, the Nokia 8 is unique in several ways, including the fact that it's the only high-end Nokia-branded Android phone announced to date. The handset's highlight features include a 5.3-inch display with 1440 x 2560 pixels, a Snapdragon 835 processor, 360-degree OZO sound recording, and a dual 13 MP Zeiss camera. At the moment, the Nokia 8 runs Android 7 Nougat, but it will certainly be updated to Android 8 Oreo. You can take a closer look at the device by checking out our Nokia 8 hands-on (video included).

HMD Global - the new home of Nokia phones - doesn't plan to sell the regular Nokia 8 in the US, but a customized version of it could be released Stateside at some point. We'll let you know when (and if) we hear more about this.

Can't wait until this bad boy comes to the states. It will compliment my BlackBerry KEYone perfectly.

So, the Nokia 8 is cheaper in Germany than it is in Australia... Interesting.

Nice to see that it's finally getting a release, bezels and all, but the Pixel 2 looms in the horizon. I don't think the Nokia 8 will be able to compete against it.

I've never seen anyone get as triggered as you do over Nokia articles. Especially since you have no vested interest in Nokia whatsoever, lol. Its been "getting a release". Do your research for once. It has bezels just like the first Pixel and the iPhone. Never saw you complain once about either device. Hypocrite, much? Pixel 2 will not be able to compete with the Nokia 8 as far as sales go, and the Nokia 8 can definitely compete against it, spec-wise.

Get yourself a crying towel lol. You are shedding tears. I don't see it anywhere here in the US. Stop crying. You are just mad because I said something about Nokia and you can't stand to see no one give their opinion. Lol, you wish. You're just mad because the Pixel 2 is going to be the king of phones.

Lol, you're the one crying, as you do on every Nokia article, and you know it. Use that crying towel for yourself. The U.S. isn't the world. Get over your isolationist attitude and stop whining like a little btch. You're just triggered because I pointed out how ignorant you are about Nokia and how triggered you get when I point out your trolling and hypocrisy. Lol, no need to wish about the facts. You're just mad because your opinion about what you think smartphones doesn't mean squat to anyone but you.

I'm not the one who gets defensive every time I say something about the bezels of the Nokia phones. That's you btw. I think you need that crying towel. I never said anything about the US being the world Mr Selective Reading. I'm not triggered at all. Lol, apparently it does because you always cry and throw a temper tantrum whenever you see a comment I make that you don't like. You always target my comments even when I don't post in Nokia or blackberry articles, so spare me the sob story.

Lol, you're the one that gets defensive every time I point out your hypocrisy about bezels, especially since you've never complained about the iPhone bezels. Now use that crying towel for yourself. You mentioned it isn't here in the U.S. like it's more important than the rest of the world. Stop deflecting from what you did, Ms. deflector shields. Yeah, you're triggered. Lol, we both know that it doesn't, I just can't help but prove you wrong and call you out on your trolling ignorance. You make ignorant comments without doing research, and then cry when you get called out for it. You always target BlackBerry, Nokia, and Samsung articles for your trolling, and you even troll them in articles that have nothing to do with them, so spare me your crying and whining like a baby.

A 5.5 or bigger display would really work for me with the rest of the specs...
