When is it out? However, seeing the phone today on the official Nokia website seems like this is the final nail on the coffin, and all the rumors can now be put to rest.
Zeiss and HMD confirmed a partnership earlier this month to reintroduce Zeiss optics to Nokia branded handsets.
As for the price, one source pegs the Nokia 8 at $675 (roughly £510, AU$860), though we'd previously heard that it might be cheaper, at around $470/£360/AU$595. The Finnish company responsible for the resurrection of the Nokia brand has now appointed, Florian Seiche, HMD Global's president, as the acting CEO.
HMD promptly removed any mention of the Nokia 8 from the site, but the internet never forgets, as you can see in the screen grab above that was posted originally on Baidu.
Well folks. Looks like we've got a design confirmation for the Nokia 8.
Further, the tipster also claims that the budget Nokia 2 may look like now dead Lumia 620.
It might officially be a mystery, but we already know a lot of details thanks to leaks from the supply chain. The cameras also offer resolutions at 13 megapixels. Notably, the cases as suggested by the leak shows that the device will sport rounded corners and sides. The pictured device comes with capacitive buttons and a front fingerprint sensor, which accurately matches the previous render.
According to some new repots and a few leaks, the upcoming model of high-end smartphone from Nokia will bear the name Nokia 8.
The leaks had surfaced through popular leakster Evan Blasse who also had pointed out that the phone will feature a headphone jack as well as USB Type-C connectivity.
In 2016, Microsoft chose to sell the feature phone business to FOXCONN TECH CO TWD10 (OTC: FXCOF) subsidiary FIH mobile for $350 million and the right to use the brand name to HMD Global, a company founded by former Nokia executives to produce smartphones and tablets under the Nokia brand. So, it won't be totally odd if HMD Global chooses to announce the next Nokia device today itself. The device is also expected to be available in 6GB option as well.
Eclipsed by the Nokia 3310, Nokia's new smartphones began to join the blinds.
