Nokia 8 unboxing and first look

The Nokia 8 is the flagship phone of the reborn Nokia, now a brand owned by company HMD Global, where a lot of ex-Nokia engineers work.

Equipped with the Snapdragon 835, the Nokia 8 has the same hardware as the best Android phones out there, but it undercuts them in terms of price. Call it the budget flagship of the year, especially now that the OnePlus 5 is no longer available.

The phone is already on sale in Europe (unfortunately, it will not be officially available in the United States) and we are currently running our tests and using the phone in preparation for the full review.

But first, let's take a peek at what's inside the box...

In the box:
  • Phone
  • Plastic earbuds, black, with 3 different sizes of rubber tips
  • USB-C to standard USB cable, black
  • Wall charger, black (supports fast charge, up to 18 watt output)
  • Sim ejector tool
  • User Manual

First of all, did you just call HMD Global a Chinese company? They're as Finnish as saunas. Secondly, HMD Global doesn't own Nokia. They license the Nokia brand and several patents from Nokia Corporation. Nokia Corporation is still its own massive corporation with 100 000 employees and a yearly revenue of some 24 billion dollars.

First look? Why the big delay? It's been out in the UK and Europe for a month or more now?
