Nokia 8 will reportedly cost €520 outright in Europe

We're about two weeks away from the official reveal of the Nokia 8, as HMD Global announced it will host a launch event on August 16.

Since we already know what the phone looks like thanks to the plethora of images that leaked online in the last couple of weeks, let's talk a bit about Nokia 8's price.

Rumor has it that HMD wants to offer its flagship for a lower price than other high-end smartphones like Samsung Galaxy S8, LG G6 or HTC U11. The first reports talk about a slightly lower than €600 price for the Nokia 8, and possibly around the same in the United States ($600).

However, it appears that Nokia 8 will be priced much cheaper than we originally expected. Vodafone Romania lists the Black version of Nokia 8 for €517.42 outright, a lot less than the rumored €600 price.

Romania's smartphone price policy follows the same rules as the Western Europe markets, which means the Nokia 8 should cost the same in Germany, Italy, Spain and other countries in the region. The only differences might result from the VAT tax, which isn't the same in the EU countries.

Although the information comes from a trusted source, we can't vouch for accuracy. Perhaps a €520 price tag for Nokia 8 would be too good to be true?
