Nokia 8, whose photos of preproduction model we saw earlier, is going to be unveiled in London on August 18. With this phone HMD will step into the area of top models, but the Nokia 8 isn’t supposed to be the best HMD can offer. We are pretty much acquainted with the specifications of the phone, but one crucial thing that everybody wants to know is missing, the price. According to the listings of the Romanian Vodafone, black Nokia 8 should be priced close to €520. Since operators usually have bigger prices than usual retailers, this figure could be a bit lower.
This price puts the Nokia 8 in the company of OnePlus5, Sony Xperia XZ, Xiaomi Mi6, Huawei Honor 9 and LG G6. If you are familiar with these phones you know that they all have the same overall looks except LG G6 which has 2:1 screen ratio and smaller bezels.
So, now you can see where HMD is aiming with Nokia 8. With great build quality, great camera and regular Android updates they could shake the market. Nokia still means something and HMD is aware of that.
Since Vodafone already knows the prices, maybe the phone will be available days after it is being unveiled. Well, I would like to see that 😊.
