Nokia 8 Might Get a Very Powerful Configuration When It Lands in the U.S., FCC Certification Shows
According to an FCC certification, the Nokia 8 might make its way to the U.S. and luckily for those that want ample storage and RAM at their disposal in a mobile phone, the flagship is expected to deliver on those exact fronts.
FCC Certification Shows the Nokia 9 En Route to the U.S. Will Have 6GB RAM and 128GB Internal Storage
Details of the max spec’d out version of the Nokia 8 shows that HMD Global will be sending the TA-1004 and TA-1012 variants to the U.S. market, which features 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. This can mean the Nokia 8 will be competing against the likes of OnePlus 5, and because there are several consumers out there that might not appreciate the unique design language of a smartphone but prefer getting the best of the best from a hardware perspective, the device is expected to sell moderately well.
Pricing details of the handset were not detailed, but we are under the assumption that it will retail for around $700. The aforementioned price is lower than that of the Galaxy Note 8 but some advanced hardware additions are still missing that might allow HMD Global to gain more control on the pricing. For example, the Snapdragon 835-powered flagship does not feature an OLED display, but an LCD screen instead with a resolution measuring at 2560 x 1440.
The LCD display might bring a cause of concern for several users, but HMD Global states that the smartphone will have its dedicated low-powered section to conserve battery life. Though the phone will be running Android 7.1.1 Nougat, Nokia 8 will eventually be updated to Android Oreo.
The most exciting part has to be its dual-13MP camera sensors. The secondary lens present at the back is a monochrome shooter while the one at the front is a 13MP camera. All three of them use Zeiss optics, but that’s not the only stand-out feature in stock. The camera app supports native live-streaming to Facebook or YouTube. Despite its 5.3-inch screen, the Nokia 8 features a non-removable 3,090mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0.
