Ever since HMD Global launched its first Nokia-branded Android smartphone lineup earlier this year, Android community has been eagerly waiting for a proper Nokia flagship that can go head to head against other flagship devices such as the Google Pixel or Samsung Galaxy S8.
Now new reports coming in suggest that the first ever Nokia flagship is just around the corner. According to The Verge, HMD Global is all set to announce its upcoming Nokia-branded flagship at a launch event next month. The company has already started sending out media invites for the launch event.
The press invite reads:
HMD Global invites you to an exclusive gathering to unveil the next milestone for Nokia phones.
The launch event will take place on August 16 in London, UK at 7:30 PM (local time).
The Nokia 8 will be the fourth Nokia-branded Android device from HMD Global. However, unlike the previously launched budget-friendly Nokia lineup, the Nokia 8 will offer a flagship smartphone experience with a more premium design and top-of-the-line hardware.
The phone has been subject to leaks and rumors for a while now. Earlier leaked renders show the device will sport a 5.3-inch Quad HD screen on the front along with capacitive navigation buttons and a front-mounted fingerprint reader.
It is also rumored to house a vertically aligned dual-camera setup on the back –comprising of two 13MP sensors, along with Zeiss branding. While on the inside, the device is expected to come with the Snapdragon 835 SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
With the official launch event just a few weeks away at this point, hopefully, we won’t have to wait long to learn more about HMD Global’s first flagship device.
