For months now, people have been talking about Nokia’s return to the mobile phone market. A few years ago, the brand was considered kind of the hill when it comes to mobile phones. However, with the advent of the iPhone and more Android phones, the company lost its relevance. Now, Nokia along with HMD Global, are trying to find its way back to the limelight. To do this, the companies are set to release a few high-end mobile devices, one of which is the Nokia 8.

The Nokia 8 has been rumored since the previous Consumer Electronic Show event in Las Vegas. At the time, Nokia sneakily showcased what appears to be a prototype of its high-end phone. While the Nokia 8 is not the only high-end mobile device that is coming from Nokia this year, it is, by far, the most talked about model.

At the moment, most rumors point to the said phone carrying the latest Snapdragon SoC from Qualcomm. According to some reports, this piece of chip will be running at 2.45GHz and will be paired with as much as 6GB of RAM. While these may sound stunning and impressive, a new revelation about the device has come to light.

According to Pocket Now, the Nokia 8 will come in two variants, a cheaper and a slightly more expensive one. The cheaper version will have a smaller display and 4GB of RAM. Meanwhile, the more premium model will have a 6GB RAM as well as a bigger display. In addition to this, it seems like Nokia is following the footsteps of Apple by ditching the headphone jack as well.

In terms of pricing, the bigger version of the mobile phone is said to fetch somewhere around $650. On the other hand, the smaller version will be priced at $580.

Unfortunately, Nokia has yet to release an official statement about the supposed release of the Nokia 8. Even the specs mentioned above are mere speculations from leaks that were given by various sources. For more updates on the Nokia 8, be sure to check us out at TheBitbag.
