Apparently, that's a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 reference design. http://www.techdue.com/leaked-nokia-8-actually-qualcomm-835-reference-design/
OKAY, 12 Jan 2017What HMD is made off? ex-nokians when did HMD comes into existence? when it was announced... moreThey don't have an _exclusive_ rigth to the patents, Nokia can still license them to others too. The point of the relationship here is that HMD has access to them without similar long negotiations that others would require. This benefits both HMD and Nokia. If HMD is interested to use the patents, Nokia can easier showcase their tech first in HMD, and at the same time keep the brand better.
ok.. stereo speakers, camera ala nokia quality, superbeast snapdragon 835, beautiful design, nokia branding, 6gb of ram..
Nokia is back.. strong.
Nokia could have made the phone thicker in order to reduce the camera bump with 808 style camera. Where's the Xenon flash? Alas!
Someone Else, 13 Jan 2017It just gets to me, The reason Nokia will name their flagship the Nokia 8 is because they want... moreNokia has always used a numeric naming scheme, 1-9 in relation to the position of their range.
I dunno if those are the real flagship phones from Nokia, but I hate that bulging camera. Dude, just make the phone thicker, get extra battery and no camera hump! Is it that hard??
That is becos their first market is China ... and it's by Flextronics.
I bet even Finland cannot buy a Nokia 6 when it's launched.
[deleted post]This is a prototype for Quallcomm SD835.. But quallcom does not produce phones.. So it had to ask for a phone manufacturer to help make this prototype platform.. And this phone manufacturer is NOKIA
What's so Nokia about this device, granted the specs are top notch it still looks like a typical China phone tbh.
Anonymous, 13 Jan 2017Funny thing is.. look at where they placed the phones. If the position of the camera for both ... moreMaybe take a look at it again... Both cameras are in the center. You can clearly see it when he places his hand behind the phones. Also, look at the green LED's on both phones. They are both in the center.
Anonymous, 13 Jan 2017If had s Finnish, why do the phones look like Chinese phones??All smarphones look the same these days.
Nokia and Foxconn grew up making phones together. When you have that history and a collective collaborative passion, great things can happen. Ps, one of the best NokiaÂ’s I ever had was the slightly curved, beautiful solid Classic 6720 http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_6720_classic-pictures-2686.php
After all big daddy is back from vacation.....party is over for kids finally.....welcome Nokia cheers
Eh....if the pixels aren't of a decent size to counter the lower resolution and it doesn't have at least f1.7 or f1.9 aperture it's not worthy of being a purview upgrade
mischa, 12 Jan 2017This look like a Sony phone with that rectangular shape and large bezels. WTF is an HMD Global... moreyou're not even sure what country HMD Global is from. Then telling us don't be deceived??? LOL know things first then come back here ok. :p
harukaze87, 12 Jan 2017The cameras look promising, but the upper and lower bezels look humongous. Maybe the bigger ca... moreLooks like it has a case, so it's not the actual size. Look when they show the camera module
