Nokia 8 coming to US, passes through FCC

At the launch event, HMD Global will be announcing the India pricing and availability of its first true flagship smartphone, the Nokia 8. As the smartphone is priced competitively in Europe, we expect it to be priced lower than most 2017 flagship smartphones. The device has now been tipped to be launched in India on September 26. Indian users, however, can expect the price of the handset to fall within the same range as the European market. It might be a bit behind the times - other smartphones might be more modern and cutting edge - but it feels special, nostalgic and timeless. It has four color options - Polished Copper, Polished Blue, Tempered Blue and Steel. "Join us for the unveiling of the next milestone of Nokia phones". India is expected to get the dual SIM option of Nokia 8.

The new mobile device features a unibody design. The 3.5mm headphone jack is located at the top and the charging port at the bottom with the fingerprint sensor at the back panel.

That is the problem of today's smartphone world, where specifications and gimmicks rule the roost. Its display consists of a 5.3-inch 2K LCD display with Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

The software is also butter smooth and devoid of any bloat, unneeded gesture or gimmick.

Processor: The device is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, which clocks at 2.45 GHz and is supported by Adreno 540 GPU.
