Nokia 8 (2018) now official

HMD Global has announced a new global device called the Nokia 8 (2018).

The same device was also announced a few months ago in China as the Nokia X7, the successor to 2017’s Nokia 7 Plus. HMD Global is simplifying its naming scheme in the affordable premium mid-range segment of the smartphone market, with the model number moving forward

HMD Global’s new Nokia 8 features a notched display with 96% NTSC color gamut coverage and DCI-P3 support, an 86.5% screen to body ratio, ZEISS dual rear cameras, and Android Oreo right out of the box. Being an Android One phone, the device also has guaranteed updates to future Android builds, including Android Pie, as they come along.

The device also has a fast charging feature — HMDG claims that the Nokia X7 can go from 0-50% in just 30 minutes. Its cameras are built with ZEISS optics and tout better low-light photography with a wider aperture.
