It’s been not more than a week since HMD Global announced it’s first ever Android-powered smartphone, the Nokia 6 and we already have the details about the company’s upcoming flagship phone. Dubbed as the Nokia 8, the yet-to-be-announced flagship offering from the company seems to pack powerful hardware including the Snapdragon 835 chipset.
The leak came in the form of a video, as you can see below. According to it, the Finnish company could release its flagship model in two variants: one with Qualcomm's latest chipset, the Snapdragon 835 and another with the slightly older Snapdragon 821 chipset.
Codenamed as Nokia Supreme internally, the flagship phone will flaunt a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED QHD display with a resolution of 1440x2560 pixels. However, unlike most of the phones that are rumored to sport a dual-edge curved display this year, the Nokia 8 will stick to a flat panel design.
Apart from these, the smartphone is also rumored to sport a 24MP primary camera along with support for Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and Super Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS). For the selfie enthusiasts, the device will come equipped with a 12MP camera at the front.
In terms of storage space, the phone will be launched in two storage variants: 64GB and 128GB. The device is also rumored to come with a microSD card slot (expandable up to 256GB) in case there’s a need for expansion of storage space.
Other leaked features include a dual front-facing speakers and the inclusion of a fingerprint scanner. The placement of the fingerprint sensor is yet to be revealed, though.
On the software side of things, it is safe to expect the smartphone to come with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box since the Nokia 6 will also ship with same Android version.
As per the launch date, there are no specifics available right now. But all we know is that the Nokia 8 will be unveiled at MWC 2017 in late February.
