The Nokia 8 Breaks Cover

Okay, so forget the previous leak that will appear above or below this post… this is the Nokia 8, confirmed by none other than Evan Blass himself. Notice the Zeiss logo on the camera lens assembly—happy days for Nokia fans! I’m also liking the navy blue trim; according to the source, Nokia’s first proper Android flagship will also be available in a blue/gold or copper/gold combination, and also “steel”.

With all the conflicting information the specs sheet isn’t yet 100% clear; all we know for certain is that the 8 will have a Snapdragon processor and QHD display. Its European variant will likely have dual-SIM support, though there may be single-SIM versions as well. The phone has already made an appearance at the FCC as model number TA-1012.

As for the Nokia 9, Blass doesn’t believe that it exists.

The Nokia 8 could launch as early as July 31st, and a Scandinavian site has indicated a retail price of €589, or about $675 USD. Taxes are notoriously high in Europe, though, and VAT means that all taxes are included in the sticker price. In other words, it may sell for a little cheaper than that.

Who’s ready to rock a Nokia again?
