Nokia 8 Pricing Has Allegedly Been Leaked at an Online Retailer
Nokia 8 is expected to be announced at the MWC 2017 that’s going to start this week but it looks like we’ve caught a glimpse of what the upcoming flagship is going to be priced at if the leak turns out to be true that is. From the looks of it, Nokia 8 is attempting to adopt a ‘low-cost’ business model, where it can sell a larger number of units in order to garner a bigger market of a particular region.
Nokia 8 Listed on a Chinese Online Retailer and After Conversion, the Price Was Less Than $500
At the time of viewing, JD.com might have accidentally leaked the pricing of the Nokia 8 as 3,188 Yuan. When converted that pricing comes to $463.49. If you take a look at the link right now, you will see that the pricing details have been removed, meaning that an accidental listing process from someone over at China must have occurred. Still, taking a glance at the price tag that’s less than $500 definitely brings a ton of speculation at hand because price/performance smartphones running Android have become readily available.
It’s not like these devices are bad in any manner. Sure, they might be void of additional premium features present in devices that go upwards of $650 but for the price tag, they’re definitely a ‘must buy’ for a consumer wanting to purchase a smartphone without shelling out too much money. However, the Nokia 8 is expected to come with a 1440p display and the internals range from a Snapdragon 835, 6GB of RAM, and a virtual assistant that’s been leaked to be codenamed ‘Viki’.
Under those facts, we should not assume that the Nokia 8 is going to be priced at less than $500 so we want you to take this information with a pinch of salt for now. MWC 2017 is just around the corner and we will know everything we have to have to about the family of Nokia phones, so we’ll be able to gather our patience for a little while longer.
