While we await the North American début of the Nokia 6 (come on, unlockable bootloader!) here’s an early look at its bigger sibling, via some promotional materials that someone leaked to a Chinese tech blog. The blurry photo on the left shows a top-mounted headphone jack, bottom-mounted stereo speakers and a USB-C connector. The less blurry photo on the right shows what looks like an edge-to-edge display and multiple colour options.
The rumoured release for the Nokia 8 is July or August—in China, anyway—and specs are thought to be as follows:
Snapdragon 835 processor
6 inch 2K display
6 GB of RAM / 128 GB of storage
What’s especially interesting is the price: 3188 CNY, which converts to about $469 USD. That’s $10 cheaper than the starting price of a OnePlus 5.
Could these leaked materials be fake? Absolutely. There is ample evidence of another Nokia flagship, the Nokia 9, which seems to have a design language more in line with the already-released 6. Whatever the case, it’s going to be an interesting year for Nokia and Android fans!
