Nokia 8 appears on official website ahead of possible announcement tomorrow

We’ve already seen the Nokia 8 in not one, but two sets of leaked press renders, and its specs have been outed too. So at this point all that’s left for HMD Global to do is make it official already. And that could happen sooner than you may think.

Today Nokia’s Chinese website put up a promotional image for the yet-unannounced smartphone, as evidenced by the screengrab you can see below. We assume this was a mistake by the webmaster, since HMD still hasn’t unveiled the Nokia 8.

Yet it’s possible that the handset will actually become official tomorrow, if we go by the date shown on the phone’s lock screen. Portrayed in the official image is the same blue color version we’ve seen already, with a black front (perhaps meant to mask those big top and bottom bezels somewhat).

The Nokia 8 should come with a 5.3-inch QHD touchscreen, and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset at the helm. Its dual rear cameras will be Zeiss branded, each having 13 MP resolution. Depending on which exact model you buy, you’ll get either 4 or 6GB of RAM, and the handset will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat. As for pricing, an unlocked unit will cost around 550-600 according to past rumors.

Thanks for the tip, aziz!
