Nokia 8 isn't coming to the US and China

According to the latest reports from CNBC, the Nokia 8 isn't coming to the US and China.

HMD did not released the specific market list in which it would be releasing the Nokia 8, but told CNBC that it would launch in countries which are accustomed to higher average selling prices of phones.


"The U.S. requires a separate strategy, even a separate portfolio and tech investment so we are not in a rush today around that because we are seeing such strong demand across the globe,"

The Nokia 8 will not launch in China, as the company is crafting a specific strategy around the world's biggest smartphone market, and will launch specific devices tailored to consumers there.

"China is a big focus market and we will make announcements on those dedicated products there in the future," Seiche told CNBC.

Here is the Nokia 8, Again!!!

As we inch closer to the August 16 and the unveiling of the Nokia 8, the leaks are flowing steadily. Today we have another set of Images showing off the upcoming Nokia 8 (Copper-Gold variant) from different angles.

As you can see in the below image, the Nokia 8 is wrapped up in a transparent plastic package. Again, the back of the device is having dual-cameras with Zeiss optics. Talking about the front it seems that HMD is sticking with physical keys and larger display bezels for the Nokia 8.
Here is the Nokia 8, Again!!!



If you ask me, the device do looks great from the back, but the front is really disappointing. Don't know why only Samsung and LG, so far, seems to have gone all in on killing off bezels. With these huge bezels, we don't think that the Nokia 8 will be able to even touch the standards of Galaxy S8, LG G6, and the upcoming Pixel 2.

According to previous leaks, the phone will be priced tad higher. The phone may cost 589 euros (675 USD/ 43500 INR), which would be a steep price considering the trademark of Nokia.

The Nokia 8 is said to come with a 5.7-inch 2K, Snapdragon 835 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 64GB internal storage. It will be available in blue, steel (silver), Gold / blue, and gold / copper color options.
