HMD Global launched the Nokia 6 at Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas recently, revealing superior audio quality, impressive build quality and premium specifications but the contract manufacturer also said that it intends to offer the best mobile experience at every price point and will unveil more Nokia smartphones before the end of the year.
Among the upcoming Nokia phones, the Nokia 8 is slated to be the one which will take on premium flagship phones this year. While many of us were expecting it to be unveiled at Mobile World Congress in late February, a few techies spotted the device at the ongoing Consumer Electronics Show and someone managed to get a few snaps of the flagship as well!
Two Nokia 8 handsets (prototypes?) were placed on display at Qualcomm's booth at CES, with one of them featuring the Snapdragon 821 processor and the other one featuring the Snapdragon 835. A video showing the two handsets also focussed on significant camera bumps on the back which are very similar to the bumps caused by Nokia's PureView cameras during the Lumia era. The devices also looked very similar to the just-launched Nokia 6 which leaves very little doubt about them being real Nokia 8s.
As per 9to5Google, the phones field software keys instead of physical buttons and that the rear camera setup will include a 24-MP Carl Zeiss lens with OIS and EIS. The front camera will be a 12-MP one and the phone will also feature 6GB of RAM, 64GB or 128GB of storage options and a MicroSD slot. With HMD Global expected to launch the phone officially at Mobile World Congress next month, we will be able to verify these rumoured specifications in just over a month from now.
