The Verge reports that HMD Global sent out invites for an event scheduled for the 16th August in London at 7:30pm local time. The exclusive licensee of the Nokia brand will use this event to announce new devices, probably the expected flagship Nokia 8, that we saw on renders and real-life pictures leaked in the last few weeks.
Nokia 8 is rumored to come with Snapdragon 835 and 4GB RAM, but the biggest news is that the phone will use ZEISS branded lens on its dual-camera setup. HMD is also working on Nokia 2, 7 and 9, per the rumors. The 2 should be a very affordable Android device, priced below Nokia 3 (€139). We received a tip about the 7 some time ago saying that it should come with ZEISS lens and Snapdragon 630 or 660. About Nokia 9 the rumors mention Snapdragon 835, up to 8GB of RAM, IP68, edge to edge display, and a ZEISS-branded camera.
NokiaMob is still waiting for its invite, but nevertheless, we will of course be covering all the announcements HMD has in plan on the 16th of August.
