Last month, HMD Global unveiled its Nokia 8 flagship at an event in London which came with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Now, it appears a new variant of the handset is all set for its US release.
According to a report by NokiaPowerUser, the flagship was spotted on US FCC listing with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. This clearly suggests that HMD Global is gearing up for the launch of the flagship in the US market, that’ll come with higher RAM and storage. In addition, the Nokia 8 will also get support for ANT+feature and WCDMA Band IV listings which allows users to keep track of health and fitness data in real-time directly on the smartphone.
Coming to the specifications, the Nokia 8 features a 5.3-inch IPS display with a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels which is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Under the hood, the smartphone gets powered by the latest Snapdragon 835 processor and runs Android 7.1.1 OS out-of-the-box.
The highlight of the Nokia 8 is probabaly its dual-lens primary camera with Zeiss Optics. The Nokia 8 comes with a dual-lens camera setup featuring a 13MP RGB sensor and a 13MP monochrome sensor. Other features on the camera include laser and phase detection auto focus, OIS, along with support for 4K and Full HD video recording at 30fps. For selfies, it sports a 13MP front-facing shooter.
Juicing up the handset is a 3090mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0. As far as connectivity goes, the Nokia 8 offers dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, GLONASS, as well as BDS support.
In Europe, the Nokia 8 carries a price tag of 599 Euros, which is around $705 on conversion. We’re expecting a similar price-tag for the phone when it comes to the US. That being said, phones tend to carry a slightly lower price tag in the US compared to the EU, so it’s possible the price tag could end up closer to the $600 – $650 mark when the phone officially arrives Stateside.
