Update: This news turned out to be untrue as GSMArena has confirmed that the device in the video is a Qualcomm prototype and not the Nokia 8.
HMD Global recently launched the Nokia 6 and the surprised the whole world. Although, we all were expecting an Android Nokia device, but we’re expecting a Nokia flagship device clad with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC as the rumours had suggested. However, much to the dismay of many fans, the Nokia 6 turned out to be a mid-ranger. Also, as an additional blow to the hopes of fans, Nokia 6 will be a China-exclusive device.
But all of this is going to change very soon. Another Nokia Android device is on its way and it will be Nokia’s answer to the iPhone 7 and Galaxy S7 or shall we say a challenge before the iPhone 8 and the Galaxy S8. The upcoming Nokia flagship will in all probability be unveiled at the MWC 2017 which will kick off in Barcelona on 27 February.
According to a report published by GSMArena, the next Nokia Android flagship will be known as Nokia 8 and it will be unveiled at the MWC this year. According to this report, the Nokia 8 will come in two variants. There will be a Snapdragon 821 variant with 4GB of RAM. However, it isn’t the one in which we are interested. The flagship variant will sport the mighty Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset along with 6GB of RAM, 64GB/128GB of internal storage with microSD support. The USP of the Nokia 8 is the Carl Zeiss 24MP primary camera with optical image stabilisation (OIS) and electronic image stabilisation (EIS).
A video has been released on YouTube showing these two variants. You can clearly see how the Snapdragon 835 variants clearly outperform the Snapdragon 821 variant in terms of OIS and EIS. No physical buttons can be seen on the front of these devices and the devices are expected to sport heart-rate monitor and Carl-Zeiss optics. Let’s hope that this device really is the much-fabled Nokia 8 and we get to see it during the MWC 2017. You can watch the video below.
