Nokia 8 Launch

Nokia 8 is rumored to be the affordable flagship that will go against likes of OnePlus 5 and other so-called flagship killers. It will be powered by Snapdragon 835 and will also feature Dual-Lens Zeiss camera. Nokia 8 will come with a 5.3-inch Quad HD screen. Based on leaked images, the display will have a 2.5D glass on top, capacitive buttons, a fingerprint scanner in the home button.

Nokia 8 launch will mark the resurrection of the iconic brand. However, the company has failed to deliver in the Indian market. Nokia 6 has not made it to the Indian market yet while Nokia 3 and Nokia 5 are already available.

Here is a quick look at the leaked specs:

  • Dual-SIM support
  • 151.55 mm x 73.7 mm
  • 5.3-inch, QHD resolution display
  • Snapdragon 835
  • 4GB RAM
  • 64 GB ROM
  • 13 MP Dual-Lens Rear Camera with Carl-Zeiss optics
  • 13 MP Front camera
  • MicroSD card support

Will Nokia 8’s vertically stacked Dual-Lens camera with Carl Zeiss optics be able to stand out from the competition? The device will compete against the OnePlus 5 and Honor 8 Pro which has already toughened the competition for the affordable flagship Android device.
