Nokia 8 India

Finnish phone manufacturer HMD Global launched its first Android flagship phone Nokia 8 last month, featuring a dual camera setup and high end specs. At the time of the launch, HMD Global only unveiled a single model with 4GB RAM/64GB ROM. However, an upgraded variant of Nokia 8 with 6GB RAM/ 128GB ROM was spotted on Federal Communications Commission(FCC)’s listing in the US. Reports suggest that the Nokia 8 could be launched in India next month.

HMD Global has complimented Nokia 8 with the ANT+ feature that allows you to view your sport, fitness, and health monitoring data in real-time on your mobile device. The listing on the FCC website shows that Nokia 8 with model numbers TA-1004, TA-1012, and TA-1052 received certification. While TA-1052 is the standard model that is currently being sold, TA-1004 and TA-1012 are supposedly the model numbers of the premium variant. HMD also confirmed that the new variant will hit Europe next month on 20 October. It will be retailing at €669 that is €90 more than its sibling.
