We last shared our expectation that HMD will send invites for a Nokia 8 launch event soon. And it has happened now. HMD has sent media invites for an event in London on August 16.
The invite doesn’t reveal too many details but does mention that it is about “unveiling the next milestone for Nokia phones”. It is a good enough hint to understand that we can expect Nokia 8 unveil on August 16, given the massive amount of Nokia 8 leaks in recent days.
Nokia 8 is deemed to be the affordable flagship that will go against likes of OnePlus 5 and other so-called flagship killers. It will be powered by Snapdragon 835 and will also feature Dual-Lens Zeiss camera but will be priced around USD 549/599.
Nokia 9, the ultimate flagship, on the other hand, will come with premium configuration and may not be announced along with Nokia 8.
