Nokia 8 also known as Nokia P1 will be the company’s first flagship phone powered by Android operating system. The handset was rumored for launch last month during the CES event, but it didn’t happen. Instead, Nokia decided to launch the Nokia 6, a fast Android One phone with 5.5-inch FHD display and Snapdragon 430. Nokia 8 remained to be in the shade, that’s also because the device will be running the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset on its premium version and the chip wasn’t ready for the CES. Even, there are not enough chipsets to power up all handsets that were planned to be housing it, LG’s G6 will have to choose for another alternative because all of the available chipsets are currently reserved for the Samsung Galaxy S8 (harsh times for LG).
Staying unannounced didn’t necessarily meant for the Nokia 8 to be forgotten, it was part of numerous of leaks and rumors, and based on what rumors suggested, Yesterday, there was a YouTube video of a 360-degree concept Nokia 8. But today we might have the first real photo of the Nokia 8; in fact, is a prototype of the device that bears the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 sign on the back. This, somehow confirms that the Snapdragon 835 edition of the Nokia 8 was not an illusion.
Nokia 8’s primary camera design appeared on a previous leak, and it seems to have been legit. As the latest leaked image reveals, Nokia’s 2017 flagship will be a quite of a thin device with narrow framing and a tiny curve on all of its four edges. Unfortunately, there’s no front-viewing image of the phone yet. But we know that the featured camera on the Nokia 8 will be a 24MP unit with 4K video recording and the selfie camera a 12MP shooter. An amazing phone for photography.
The Nokia 8 is expected to be company’s first Android-powered powerhouse phone. It will be sporting a 5.7-inch display with QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels and run the Snapdragon 835 processor with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage. All this topped by Android 7.0 Nougat.
