HMD can’t afford another manufacturing fiasco and big delays for their newly announced flagship, so they made sure that the manufacturing and delivery chains are in place for the launch of the first ever Nokia flagship running Android. In fact, Nokia 8 is already being shipped as we speak, and in Germany pre-orders for the device already started.
The Nokia 8 can be pre-ordered at Deutsche Telekom, Media Markt, Saturn, O2, Amazon and Mobilcom Debitel, but not all operators/retailers have the pre-order page up on their websites. German operater O2, that offered pre-orders for Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 with fair price and JBL Go as a gift, started taking pre-orders for the Nokia 8.
O2 offers the Nokia 8 for a total price of €577, which is less than HMD’s expected €599, and also offers a free Nokia Steel watch for those who pre-order the device. The delivery will take place on 6th September, confirming once again that HMD will quickly bring the phone to market.
The phone is reportedly on pre-orders in Russia too, for €575, but I cannot find relevant links. There is a high possibility that other retailers and operators in Europe and above started taking pre-orders for the device, so the best thing to do, if you are interested, is to contact your favourite sales company.
