Rumors: #Nokia 8 (TA-1004) coming this month with Snapdragon 835, 4GB RAM…

Credible German news site reports new info about the alleged Nokia flagship under the model number TA-1004 we heard about numerous times before.

Contrary to reports that Nokia 8 will come with Snapdragon 660, with the Nokia 7 being with Snapdragon 630 and Nokia 9 with Snapdragon 835,’s source claim that the TA-1004 equipped with Snapdragon 835 and 4GB RAM, as we already know thanks to AnTuTu, will be called Nokia 8, not Nokia 9.

In Europe, Nokia 8 (TA-1004) will also have 64GB of internal storage, 4GB of RAM and a Dual-SIM option as well. The source is talking about four color variants, that are: Blue, Steel (Silver), Gold Blue and Gold Copper. The screen size is 5.7-inches, not 5.3-inches as rumored before and with 2K resolution.

The above written information about Nokia 8 is related to the version that will be sold in Europe, and there are possibilities that we are going to see options with more RAM for other markets or some time after the 8’s availability. Nokia 8 should be available starting 31st July for a retail price of €589 ($675) in Europe.

Summarized specifications of Nokia 8 TA-1004:

  • 5.7-inch 2K display
  • Snapdragon 835
  • 4GB RAM
  • 64GB internal storage
  • Available starting 31st July 2017
  • €589 ($675) price

The source didn’t mention camera or other specifications like battery, but the TA-1004 is rumored to come with a Dual lens camera that will probably be brandad with ZEISS. This new reports contradicts a few recent reports about the upcoming Nokia smartphones, so I recommend taking it with a pinch of salt. Additionally, the source didn’t mention Nokia TA-1012 that should be a version of the flagship with 6GB or/and 8GB RAM, that we saw on benchmarks. Considering that the Nokia 6 in China has 4GB RAM, HMD will probably push the 6GB or 8GB version there first.

I’m personally satisfied with the specifications, especially the screen size that is not 5.3-inches, according to The price is flagship high, but non-European readers have to keep in mind that in Europe (and Australia) prices for phones are overall higher compared to same models in the US, China or India for example.

What do you think about Nokia 8 and do you believe we are going to see it by the end of this month? Tell us down below. πŸ™‚


Update: New rumors

Rumors: #Nokia 8 in mass production; Nokia 9 to be waterproof & with 8GB RAM


Front panel of #Nokia 9 leaks!? ZEISS branding location known?!

  • Abhimanyu Chauhan

    I think it is true. There color options u telling are same as shown in leaked vedeo.I think nokia will launched nokia 7,8,9 in one Larget option for potential buyers according to need

  • Viccky Maurya

    I dont think, HMD will launch Nokia 8 on 31st July. Its a joke.

    • Its better to launch it this month itself. It will keep media busy in praising Nokia and forget about the availability issues. 😊

      • Viccky Maurya

        I want HMD to decrease focusing on Nokia 5/6 production. They should rather focus on the production of Nokia 7/8/9… πŸ˜€Think if Nokia 7/8/9 go on sale within 2-3 weeks of their announcement then it would be rocking πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡

  • If previous info from nokibar is true then this should be a Nokia 9.

    • Viccky Maurya

      Yes, i also think the same.πŸ€”

  • Abhimanyu Chauhan

    Never say never πŸ‘³

  • Yup you are right about the pricing. That price is of Nokia 8 Imo and not Nokia 9. I might be wrong here. But current gen flagship phones are priced 10k more than the price of this phone so I am assuming it to be Nokia 8 but then the info about the processor might be wrong as Nokia 8 was supposed to have a SD660😊

  • Rocky

    It’s already in the middle of July, and there’s no event invites to media yet, I personally doubt that available date, even they postponed Nokia 3, 5, and 6 launch in Indonesia until October.

    But, maybe this delay for Nokia 3/5/6 caused by allocated production line for Nokia 8 πŸ˜‰

    • That’s what bothers me too. Maybe the best thing to do would be to announce the device via press release (just like the 6 in China) and try to push it ASAP to market. Note 8 is coming, iPhone 7S is coming. And it would neutralise the bad atmosphere caused by the delays.

      • Rocky

        Could be, but it’s a pity to launch their first smartphone with ZEISS lenses without an event. Nokia World please πŸ˜€

      • No man. How can you even think about such a silent release. This hurts the brand image and this is not good. The decision to even announce Nokia 3, 5 and 6 so early was wrong IMO. They should have waited and announced when they had all their production related and other issues fixed. This is ruining Nokia name.
        It wouldn’t neutralize the negative atmosphere. In fact, media will starting thinking in a negative way about HMD Global. No media event for flagship phones. What the hell. 😞

        • Viccky Maurya

          ‘hurt brand image’? They already has hurted brand image by delaying too too tooo much.

    • WHAT?? OCTOBER!!! This is too much man. 😞

      • Rocky

        Yes, actually scheduled for July, but postponed until October (from trusted info)
        Too late? Yeah, but just like old Nokia does (in Indonesia) πŸ™‚

        • October? The 10th month in the year? Please tell me you meant August

          • Rocky

            Yes, October πŸ™‚
            They also launched Nokia 3310 without any official statement or press event πŸ™‚

      • Viccky Maurya

        That wont be too much if you forget that HMD ever announced Nokia 3/5/6..πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    • Viccky Maurya

      I feel the same..πŸ€—

  • Viccky Maurya

    I think, Nokia 8 will compete Galaxy S8, iPhone 7 and Nokia 9 will compete Note 8 and iPhone 8.πŸ€”

      If that’s the case, then it better wow and shock the world with incredible phenomenal and all around terrific everything!

      From battery to screen to design to form factor, to build quality to camera, to performance, and every other aspect. Nokia better come out strong!

      Nokia technologies better put in some jaw dropping features and capabilities in the phone, especially if it’s a flagship, and especially if it’s going up against the note 8 or iPhone 8 or whatever else is out there by the time the phone is in OUR HANDS! (Not when the phone is announced, but when it’s in ours hands, worldwide!)

      Think about it this way – the phone is announced 9/1/2017, then made available in China, then made available in select markets November or December 2017, but wait, it’s sold out, so now it’s available January or February 2018…. Want to know something, the Nokia flagship phone is now up against the Samsung and LG flagship phones of 2018 (which are released around February or March usually)

      So that means last year’s technology in a market where it’s a new Nokia phone, with last years hardware, etc. How many people will pay $600,$700,$800 for an older phone, when they could pay, $50-$150 more and get the best most advanced phone from the competition?

      Nokia should get its act together ASAP. Their future depends on it.

      Believe it!

  • I hope all upcoming Nokia smartphones this year are Camera Phones. πŸ™‚ Will buy a Nokia 7 in copper πŸ™‚

    • Viccky Maurya

      I am also xcited for 7…

  • EricLovesSymbian

    EricLovesSymbian says:

    I read the entire article, read all the comments (as of this writing, there were only 24) and I have a rather dim oulook, solely based on the implementation they used during the role out of the Nokia 6 (and typical Nokia roll-outs from the past).

    In my humble opinion, I feel like Nokia will most likely just ” announce ” this phone on July 31, not have it ” available “…

    When the Nokia 6 was mentioned then in blitzkrieg fashion made available to China, the rest of the world had to wait about July or so to get it. That’s a full six months! SIX! In the passed six months, new phones came out, (galaxy s8 and LG G6) new designs (bezel less, etc) new chipset (450, 630 and 660 – with the new Snapdragon 840 and 845 around the corner), new charging (quick charge 4.0 PLUS) , new camera stuff (Samsung isocell line, Zeiss optics back with Nokia), and much more! Much much stuff! And this is only in the past six months !!!

    So… if Nokia wants to come out with a new phone, or announce a new phone, or talk about coming up with a new consumer product, they best hurry up and put it in the consumer’s hands ASAP!

    Nokia needs to get the phones in people’s hands, across the world, at the same time, without hiccups, online, in store, and whichever way necessary!

    Just my two cents…

      Part 2 (since the previous comment may have gotten too long for some).

      In reference to bringing out a flagship phone, I feel Nokia design and innovation and a user interface needs to be present to set Nokia apart from others…
      It needs character. All Nokia phones are durable. All Nokia phones last forever. All Nokia phones can stop bullets, etc etc etc…

      I want innovation, style, and new things implemented that haven’t yet been seen before in Android phones.

      There is the HTC 11 with touch sensitive sides, the galaxy s8 with its nice screen, the LG G6 and Sony and mi mix with near bezel less screens, the other phones with 4100, 4500, and 5000 mAh batteries, and so on. I want Nokia to best all of them!!!

      And then saying the phone will be announced on July 31 st means what? Means it’s in China on 8/5/2017, then in the US 11/15/2017 and in India and Malaysia around 12/20/2017??? Is this in any accurate, I don’t know. But wait, it will sell out so it’ll probably be available and in the customers hands by, I dunno, February 2018…? How about this, make your current phones available worldwide ASAP, before giving us false hope of a newer phone out, while the current phones are limited release or unavailable or sold out, or whatever… !

      Who wants to guess how many new things will be out in the NEXT SIX MONTHS? After reading my previous post, about how many things came out in the past 6 months, let’s see if Nokia finally lights a fire under their own feet and hurries up a bit!

      This phone has competition… Think of the galaxy s8 with huge discounts, the LG G6 with huge discounts, the pixel 2, the iPhone 8, the note 8, the LG V30, some Sony phones, some Chinese phones, etc…

      I honestly wish someone anyone from Nokia management would read these comments and make a difference!

      We are all true Nokia fans but are being diΒ’_ed around a bit

    • Did you get your Nokia 6?? You are lucky that you are from the US. πŸ™‚ Did you buy one?

      • EricLovesSymbian

        EricLovesSymbian says:

        I honestly would have loved to be the first person in the US to have bought one, but, the phone was not upto my desired standards (to be honest).

        After waiting from 2012 til now for Nokia to make another smartphone, I need to unfortunately wait a little longer.

        Although it’s seemingly a great phone, there are too many things stopping me from getting it.
