Nokia 8 is coming to India on September 26

Nokia 8

Nokia 8 is HMD’s first flagship model that should bring the Nokia brand even closer to the people’s hearts offering great hardware for a reasonable price. The sales of the phone are ongoing in some countries, but big markets like India still await for the 8 to come. It seems that the waiting period is done since HMD allegedly plans to launch Nokia 8 on the Indian market on September 26. The sales would start in the second week of the October, and the price is said to be between INR 40000 and INR45000 (€520 – €585), which is a great price.

Nokia 8 has 5.3-inch 2K screen protected with 2.5D Gorilla Glass 5, three 13 MP cameras with ZEISS lens, Snapdragon 835 backed up with 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal memory and 3090 mAh battery. The phone will come with Android 7.1.1, but Android 8 Oreo is currently being tested. Also, soon there will be Nokia 8 with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory. Additionally, I need to mention that Nokia 8 is splash and dust proof since it has IP54 certification.

Thanks Deep Shekhar for the tip

    Btw, I don’t think the price will be that much high because India is a very price sensitive market and there’s a fierce competition from the competitors specially from OnePlus and Huawei in that segment of affordable flagship.

    Hopefully it would be priced around Rs.33k -Rs.38k to compete against the likes of OnePlus 5 and Honor 8 Pro, otherwise higher price will make the sales extremely difficult for Nokia.

    • Didn’t Nokia 6 have a similar level of competition. Nokia 8 at 40 is still comparatively a better value than Nokia 6 at 15.

        Yeah.But pricing it around 33k-38k will only make the sales better.Mostly people have already purchased purchased the OnePlus 5 and Honor 8 Pro, and one’s willing to pay premium price go for Samsung or Apple.

        • It’s just the same for the mid range too. If they start their competition with OnePlus. Then they will not be able to earn the premium for the brand value. That’s one thing HMD is clearly eyeing.
          They aim to be competing with Samsung & Apple when it comes to the brand value and not OnePlus.

  • 40-45k wouldn’t work
