HMD GLOBAL, the Finnish firm that produces handsets under the Nokia brand, will reportedly launch the long-rumoured Nokia 8 in June.
So says Pocketnow, which has heard from 'anonymous insiders' that the Nokia-branded Android flagship won't launch for another three months, with HMD Global reportedly planning a June unveiling.
While HMD has yet to comment, a launch in June would appear to make sense as it would coincide with the rebranding of Withings to Nokia Health.
While a launch is still months away, the Nokia 8 could be worth waiting for. Pocketnow's tipsters claim that the handset will pack Qualcomm's 10nm Snapdragon 835 processor, a full-metal chassis and a camera weighing in at "at least" 23MP, which could come equipped with the Carl Zeiss technology seen in the now-defunct Nokia Lumia 920.
Echoing previous rumours, the report also points to HMD launching two versions of the Nokia 8 with "big" and "small" screens. Earlier speculation hinted that the Nokia 8 being made available in both 5.2in and 5.5in versions, each with QHD 2560x1440 AMOLED displays.
Other mooted Nokia 8 specs include Galaxy S7-style IP68 certification, support for Google's Daydream VR platform, and either 4GB or 6GB RAM.
If the launch of the Nokia 3, 5 and 6 at MWC is anything to go by, we can also expect that the Nokia 8 will offer a vanilla Android experience. If so, this means users can expect prompt monthly security updates, quick upgrades to new versions of Android and Google's AI Assistant baked-in - just like the LG G6 and newly-announced Moto G5 and G5 Plus.
Pocketnow's sources the smaller Nokia 8 variant coming in at 4,000 yuan (£475), the larger at 4,500 (around £535). ah yHowever, previous rumours had pointed to 5.5in Nokia 8 with 128GB storage fetching around £635) while a 256GB version would be made available for £720. µ
