Nokia is said to be releasing six to seven Android phones in the market and Nokia 6 has already been unveiled. Now, a couple of videos have given an extensive look at the Nokia 8 smartphone that is expected to come in two versions, one with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and the other with a Snapdragon 821 chipset. The Nokia 6 handset will be made available for sale next week and more than 250,000 buyers on Chinese website have shown interest in less than 24 hours of it being listed.

According to a previous report by GSMArena, the Nokia 8 handset was shown by Qualcomm at the CES 2017 to demonstrate the power of the Snapdragon 835 processor. It was also used to compare the performance of the 835 chip with the Snapdragon 821 chipset. A couple of videos have also provided an extensive look at the Nokia 8 device. The flagship is expected to be unveiled at the MWC 2017. Earlier, there were rumours about a Nokia P1 phone, thought to be the flagship.

However, after the release of Nokia 6, Nokia 8 seems like a logical name. The device with the Snapdragon 835 chip will reportedly have a 6GB RAM, 24 MP OIS + EIS primary camera, 12MO selfie camera and dual front-facing speakers. Internal storage will be of 64GB or 128GB along with microSD card slot for storage expansion. The Snapdragon 821 chipset phone will have a 4GB RAM and unspecified camera specs. It will definitely be more affordable. No Australia release date has been mentioned yet.

Similar to the mid-range Nokia 6, the Nokia 8 will also have a unibody metal design. It won’t have front-mounted physical buttons. Carl Zeiss optics is also expected. The prototypes also show HRM written on them and that could mean a Heart Rate Monitor. However, fresh reports are suggesting that the device shown at the CES 2017 by Qualcomm was not the Nokia 8 handset. More details about the handset are expected to be announced at the Nokia/HMD event in Barcelona on Feb. 26, Sunday, a day before MWC 2017, reports Forbes.
