Leak: #Nokia 8 could indeed be announced tomorrow *UPDATE: FAKE*

A fresh leak from China confirms the speculation we had this morning about the announcement date of Nokia 8. HMD accidentally announced Nokia 8 on its official website in China. On the Chinese Nokia Mobile web page the 8 appeared with the 20th July displayed on the image of the phone, ultimately confirming that HMD will announce the 8 tomorrow.

The question remains, will the phone just be announced for the Chinese market, which would make us all outside Chine angry, or we will see a proper global announcement with a fast sales start.

Thanks Rocky for the tip.


Update: Suomimobiili.fi analyzed the picture and found out it’s not a screenshot, but made in Photoshop. However, there is still a possibility we could see Nokia 8 today, because of the typo on the renders posted by evleaks.

  • This image speaks that it is “fake”. Nokia won’t reuse the image from the support page as a hero image for the introduction of new phone.

    Idk.. This image doesn’t satisfy me. Sorry :p

    • Well, it was taken down so we don’t know if that will be the hero image. The site is probably still under construction.

      • Idk Stipe, a phone supposed to be launched in 1 day cannot have its pages still under construction. So, I feel that somebody has played with the html of the page to do this.

        Plus that tagline isn’t connecting. I know it can’t be 100% correct, but Nokia 8 can’t be branded as a “Music Machine” after having dual cameras. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9f0dfa362c2c8e9dc8cd3692fc5ddfc96e349e734e8ece41ba4b1d55e98ab998.png

        • May be the leak was of Nokia 8 from front and Nokia 9 from back πŸ˜› evleaks got two photos in mail and got confused πŸ˜› hehe
          Just joking πŸ˜›

        • You were right. It’s fake

          • The image was literally shouting that it is fake πŸ˜€

      • May be it was never published to take down? There is a possibility of this too πŸ˜€

  • Nokia 5 to go on sale in India starting 15th August!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ™‚
    @Vickky Happy now?? πŸ˜›

    • Viccky Maurya

      Yes….😊. But now I am more interested in Nokia 7..

      • marty farrell

        What 7 ? When 7 ?

        • “Soon” Sometime in future πŸ˜€

  • Nokia Mobile was very inactive after Nokia Mobile India page was formed. But today i am shocked to see them reply to so many comments. πŸ˜›

  • wasim khan

    In my opinion this page pic is fake because if you look this page closely you see to hands shaking who were wearing Indian traditional bangels and this page is from China you know what I mean

    • That Indian Shaking Hands image is used world wide for promoting Nokia 3 smartphone. Its not just for India πŸ™‚
      Its might be fake because its for Nokia 3 and they won’t use same image again for Nokia 8/9. πŸ™‚

  • I think, Nokia 8 won’t launch today. 😞

  • Rocky

    Yeah, if it’s real, why that person doesn’t scroll to the specifications and features πŸ™‚
