Its efforts were boosted by its nostalgia-fuelled release of the new Nokia 3310 feature phone, but the company is also continuing to churn out more affordable devices for buyers with the most modest budgets, especially those in emerging markets.
I have to say, if the Nokia 8 does launch with these alleged specs, it might be a very impressive smartphone in terms of performance. A new report from a German website, Winfuture claims that Nokia's new high-end device is coming as early as July 31. It's also being assumed that the phone with the model number TA-1004 would be launched as the Nokia 9. The phones are equipped with 1.8-inch color screens. As per the leak, the device is being expected to go on sale from 31 July.
Alongside that processor, the 8 is reported to include 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and dual-SIM slots.
The report has said that there are 4 colour schemes which now planned for the Nokia 8, which includes Blue, Steel, Gold/Blue and Gold/Copper. The yet-to-be-announced Nokia 8 has pretty thin bezels on the right and left side of its screen, but the top and bottom bezels are certainly on the thick side. Blue, Steel, Gold/Blue and Gold/Copper.
The price of Nokia 8 is expected to be €589 (approx Rs 43,415) in Europe. This is slightly less than the $699 price that was leaked last time, which translates to ₹ 44,977. For comparison, the iPhone 7 costs Rs 47,699, and the Galaxy S8 sells for Rs 57,900. With Nokia back in the markets with Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6, and plans for the Nokia 8, Nokia is now working on getting back in the feature phone markets.
However, things started to get even more interesting when a video surfaced in May, showing a mysterious unannounced Nokia-branded smartphone.
Recently HMD Global inked an exclusive collaboration with Zeiss, through which imaging department will be handled by Carl Zeiss optical lens.
As always, the emphasis - these being Nokia-branded phones - is on "quality, reliability, and robust design you would expect from a Nokia phone".
