Nokia 8 Smartphone Rumored to Feature Snapdragon 835 SoC & Dual Lens Camera



At the recently concluded Mobile World Congress, Nokia unveiled the new Nokia 3310 feature phone with a slimmer body and a bigger display. Apart from Nokia 3310, the company also launched three Android smartphones called Nokia 3, Nokia 5, and Nokia 6. Out of these three devices, the Nokia 6 is already on sale in China where it is selling like hot cake. Though the company announced to ramp up the production, the stocks are getting cleared within minutes after listing. The Nokia 6 packs decent specifications to make it a good mid-range smartphone, but the Nokia 3 and Nokia 5 falls behind the competition.

While the earlier rumors suggested the company to launch a flagship smartphone powered by the new Snapdragon 835 SoC at the MWC, but nothing was mentioned about this device on the stage. Once again, we are seeing the rumors about the Nokia 8 and now, it is mentioned to launch in two variants. The leaks suggest the device to launch in June with different screen sizes. Most of the major manufacturers are launching their flagship devices in two different screen sizes to cater different audience. Now the upcoming Nokia 8 will be coming in two different sizes sporting similar hardware.

Both the variants will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 SOC built on the 10nm FinFET process. The devices will be coming in 4GB and 6GB RAM variants along with different storage capacities. We also expect the device to feature metal built unibody design instead of the glass back body as seen on the recently launched LG G6 and even the upcoming Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will also use glass on front and back of the device. On the rear, we might also see dual camera setup, but there won’t be PureView or Carl Zeiss branding as seen on the year’s old Nokia smartphones powered by Symbian and Windows Mobile OS.

The device will be running on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box without any customized UI on top. Except in China, the devices shipping to other countries will get the Google Assistant built-in. Though there is not much information about the device, the smaller variant is said to cost 4,000 Yuan (approx $580 / Rs. 38,500) whereas the other variant with bigger display might be priced around 4,500 Yuan (approx $650 / Rs. 43,500). The delay in Snapdragon 835 chipset production is making the smartphone manufacturers to postpone their launches.

At MWC 2017, Sony launched the XZ Premium as the world’s first smartphone with Snapdragon 835 SoC, but it will not go on sale until June this year. Instead of waiting, LG went ahead with the last year’s Snapdrag9on 821 SoC for its LG G6 smartphone. Samsung will be launching the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus smartphones with Snapdragon 835 and Exynos 8895 processors later this month. Xiaomi Mi 6 will be unveiled next month in China and will also use the Qualcomm’s flagship processor. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details!
