Following Nokia’s re-entrance into the market with its Nokia 6, its first Android-powered device after the failed Lumia project with Microsoft, there is a possibility that the smartphone company which is now in partnership with HDM may be planning on a next big device to solidify its presence in the Android market.
Recall that the Nokia 6 boasted an array of impressive specs which captivated onlooker at the CES 2017 where it was displayed. The smartphone, although mid-range packed an impressive 4GB of RA M and a 16MP camera whose picture quality is taunted to be great as a camera could just not be comfortable measured by the pixels.
It, however, appears that Nokia is planning a sequel to the Nokia 6 and it has named it the Nokia 8. The smartphone which is expected to be unveiled officially at the MWC event scheduled for February is said to be powered by a heavy chipset; the Qualcomm made Snapdragon. However, too many details of the smartphone could not be accessed as photos were forbidden at the showcase by Qualcomm at the event.
However, the rumors have it that Nokia who has indeed whetted appetites with the Nokia 6 will indeed outdo itself on the Nokia 8 which is expected to be made available in some regions as against the Nokia 6 which HDM announced will be a China-only device.
Specs crammed into the Nokia 8 smartphone according to reports include the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipsets running under with 6GB of RAM which screams Nokia’s dedication to speed and performance. The smartphone is expected to be available in variants; reports indicate that HDM may be looking to release two models of the smartphone. Other specs said to be fitted with the device include the Carl Zeiss 24MP camera which is equipped with optical and electronic stabilization. The 24MP rear snapper will, however, cut across both variants of the smartphone according to reports as it is expected to pack a 12MP front-facing camera for selfie lovers.
Reports also indicate that Nokia may be looking to tow the Samsung and Apple Lane by releasing the 64GB and 128GB internal storage memory variants of the device into the market. Both variants will, however, support a microSD card which allows further memory expansion. The other version of the smartphone according to reports may not be getting as much investment as it has been taunted to be sporting a cheaper and not so premium Snapdragon 821 SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM which is not too bad for the device.
For the second variant of the smartphone, however, then camera specs and other details remain unknown.
