Nokia is making significant statements in the tech market as it makes a reasonable return to the tech market with Android-powered devices. Recall that the tech company in partnership with HDM Global released the Nokia 6, its first Android-powered device into the market some weeks ago after unveiling it at the CES 2017.
The Nokia 6 gathered several specks of dust as the device garnered as much a two hundred and fifty thousand registrations on the day of its launch and further went on sale in one minute when it was introduced on Chinese e-commerce site, JD.com.
However, the major disappointment came when HDM Global announced that the device would only be available to the Chinese market. Nokia proceeded to release more devices after the Nokia 6 as the tech company promised to release at least seven devices before the year runs out with it unveiling the rebooted Nokia 3310 in Barcelona during the Mobile World Congress.
Nokia in line with its promise, however, looks to be working on the much rumored Nokia 8 which is also branded as the Nokia P1 which according to rumors will be hitting the market as early as June 2017.
The device has been rumored to be making its way first to the Chinese market than to the rest of the world on orders from HDM Global will come to a sequel to the release of the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 devices designed to cause a ripple effect in the market.
On the specs sheet, the Nokia P1 or the Nokia 8 is expected to come into the market dwarfing other mid-range releases from the tech company as it will feature a QHD display and run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset which is the latest processor in the market.
The device will come into the market sporting the same processor as will be found in Samsung’s latest flagship device, the Galaxy S8, and S8 Plus which spells excellent quality for the company.
Along with the processor, the device according to new rumors will be coming to town with a metal unibody design and will be released in two distinct variants based on the size. This also lends further credibility to the company’s return to the tech market as it looks to follow in the line of Apple and Samsung which releases two variants of their latest flagship devices based on size.
Possible pricing of the device indicates that it may not be priced more than €500 or a little over the price line which is relatively cheap when it enters into the US market.
The latest report claims that the device may be introduced into the market come June 2017, and along with this if true, projections indicate that the devices may also be available in variants based on the RAM as there will most likely be the 4GB and 6GB variants of the Nokia 8.
On the camera front, the Nokia 8 is expected to come packing dual camera set up on the rear panel with at least 23MP on the rear panel.
The Nokia 8 is also rumored to be coming into the market sporting the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 layered on the screen along with an out of the box Android 7 Nougat OS.
