Great size. Renowned solid tough build. New OZO camera technology, clear back screen, Carl Zeiss optics and possibly laser focus with the other hole, elegant build, nice colours and extremely bright lumination and ear jack. Many original Nokia people at the helm. Absolutely fantastic.
Bunyip22, 19 Jul 2017Nokia didn't follow the large screen demand early enough and paid the price. Aside from india... morenah, the people was ok with the compact-screen size not until the phablets appeared, Asha series didn't have issues with consumers, so it's not with the screen, it was with Microsoft's s2pidity to adapt

Aside from india and a few other countries no one buys nokia.
Anonymous, 18 Jul 2017Its not Nokia....HMD is not just another company, HMD's staff and admin, even the engineers and most of their employees, all came from the actual brand itself, not just wannabes to take on the mobile phone industry
FoxConn? people talk bull about FoxConn when they are also the manufacturers of Acer, Sony, Xiaomi, HP, Dell, Apple and other know brands in the technology world like Cisco etc. FoxConn was also a Nokia factory before Microsoft sold it to China. Chinese products only sucks because the companies give their manufacturers low budget or low-end materials to produce their products, it's not the country China, it's the people (not all), the laborers and the government that makes the country get a bad name
crappy samsung is way behind in terms of build quality of a smartphone. few android manufacturer could show that and the kind of phone NOKIA has done it many a times. being a part of this generation I hate to say that this is a generation of stupid and brainless with little depth who knows nothing but brags about everything. this device for sure will be with awesome build quality, fluid UI, if not stellar but great camera and a more than good battery life. if some of you asked for something special that the world has not seen yet, please wait till 2030. I wish your desire be fulfilled.
I love the design. I am sick and tired of curvy phones that try to look different. Spend a week with them and they look outdated and weird. I currently have a Sony Xperia XZs and love its simple yet sophisticated design. I think Nokia is doing something equally beautiful and frankly, the word I want to use is: timeless. Can't wait.
The front side of phone is so outdated! Superb hardware but design is lacking far behind todays flagships!
Maybe the fingerprint sensor will be under the screen in the bottom left corner...why else put there a fingerprint icon...?! I don't really care so much about design if it will have an exceptional camera and thank GOD it doesn't have a display like s7/8 edge. Ohh, and it would be awesome if the front and back Nokia logo will be iluminated, to be used as a notification light...and depending on which side the phone is...if it's with the screen down only the back logo will be on, to save energy.

Too ugly... really boring design. Please HMD don't call, it's a 'Flagship' device.
This is only a press render. I sense beauty and elegance. Combined with Nokia legendary solidness and ozo it's going to kick ass understated style. Of the previous 3 models, 5 has the best body. So if any of that translates to 8, it will be very very nice. Not only that, it will be solid as a tank. Already shown that with the others. Quality.
This is not the cameraphone we hope for. This is just following the market trend. Also hoping for more design wise. This is too 'dull' for a flagship. I don't think this Nokia flagship worth our money. But let's see when it's out.
Jake, 18 Jul 2017To all nokia fans. Well i suppose this is not a top flagship. Its an affordable flagship and ... moreIf the price will be as high as the article says, is not an "Affordable flagship". More than 600 dollars is premium price. The Samsung A series prices are much more lower (and specs too)
looking at all these designs, I'm glad that I bought the galaxy S8 though it was a bit pricey. 2017 belongs to S8 and possibly until S9 comes out. I was worried if I bought the S8 then I would regret when the nokia 8 or 9 comes out. I guess not now. The s8 is really is something to hold and experience. The more days go by, the more I'm in love with it. There are 1 or 2 flaws, but the design and screen alone worth the money.
Zenodroid, 18 Jul 2017Do you even know what bezel less means? Horrible protection and squishy phone. Even with goril... moreI don't care, I just don't want my phone looks ugly with same old boring design phone with bezel.
It could push the development display industry to make better and stronger display in future.
my mate 9 is looking more beautifull than this but i think it will beat my Leica camera because CZ with nokia is superb.
