Last week, Nokia took to the stage to unveil its 2017 flagship with the Nokia 8. The device features a 5.3-inch display, while being powered by the Snapdragon 835 SoC, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of expandable storage. Additionally, the Nokia 8 includes dual 13MP camera sensors to go along with the 3,090mAh battery.
The Nokia 8 turned out to be a rather impressive device, however, there was a catch for those of us here in the States – the device isn’t coming here. A Nokia spokesperson confirmed this to CNBC but failed to share any real reason as to why the company made this decision.
Now, it seems there might have been a higher power at work as a new report claims that Nokia and HMD Global are aiming to launch a “customized” Nokia 8. This device would come to the US and China later this year, but details are scarce at this time.
NokiaPowerUser has seemingly confirmed that the China version will feature 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, but we’re still waiting to see what would come with the US variant. As someone who is excited to see Nokia make a resurgence in 2017, I don’t think the move would be complete if the company didn’t launch a flagship in the US.
Let us know what you think about this latest report and if you’d be interested in the Nokia 8 in the US.
