    Does the dual-sim use up the memory slot, like the 6?

  • DichterDichter

    Also there will be three Variants like Nokia told me:

    Single SIM 4GB+64GB + uSD up to 256GB
    Dual SIM 4GB+64GB + uSD up to 256GB (hybrid slot)
    Dual SIM 6GB RAM +128GB + uSD up to 256GB (hybrid slot)

  • rodrigo mansani

    I’m a little concerned about the battery life of the nokia 8.

  • Dongleboo

    Let’s be completely honest here – the phone is a bit meh.
    In specs it’s very contemporary, but designwise and screenwise, it’s a bit last year. Nothing overly impressive.
    I will have to wait for the Nokia 9, and if that one is as “Meh” as this one, I will have no other choice but to switch to Samsung. *first world problems*
    Perhaps the three things which are the most off-putting for me are the small screen (currently using 950XL with 5.7″) the thick bezels and the back colors. Every manufacturer is going in the bezeless direction and HMD got stuck in 2016. It’s all about product evolution. If everyone is doing it, you simply gotta follow.
    Also what’s up with the “no black” version?!? All my phones so far were black and I liked them this way. How can you even offer two shades of blue and no black? Awful marketing strategy if you ask me. I literally will not buy this phone because of the colors or more like the lack of them. So disappointing….
    So far I just hope that the Nokia 9 will be similar to what NPU showed us and that it will come in gloss/matte black.

    • iia3ezu

      It’s ‘meh’ because you were expecting too much.

      It’s the first foray of Nokia/HMD Global into Android and you’re expecting them to immediately compete with the entrenched market leaders Samsung and Apple.

      • Dongleboo

        If you want to play in the big game, you have to put your best players in it. Not your average Joe’s. This is why I don’t agree with you. They made some bold claims for the camera and for the design and they didn’t quite deliver. I’m not saying anything it’s bad, simply because I haven’t seen/touched it, but simply from aesthetic point of view is indeed “satisfactory” at best. The poll confirms my views.
        Regarding the camera – everyone said the quality is also satisfactory which is not Nokia style. I’ve been using only Nokia phones since 1998. Anyway, I don’t want to bitch about stuff I haven’t seen. Maybe when I hold the phone in my hand I will change my mind. The available colors still bother me though.

      • SIMO

        Well it already offers a lot more than any iPhone.

  • serversurfer

    Awesome! As a former Blackberry-Fanboy (who is forced to leave the BBOS10 for fu*king android) I welcome an outstanding high end device with killer-specs! The price (around 600;-€) seems to be very decent… Only the hardware-buttons are NOT suitable. So I hope, the rumoured Nokia 9 will have the same specs in a contemporary frontview….

    • Kamal

      Many prefer hardware buttons.

      • serversurfer

        I know! It´s my personal taste and preference. But I can´t help- the relation between frame/bezel and display seems to be adverse…Nevertheless currently the most beautiful phone on the market!


    No Glance Screen?
    No Camera Button?

    • iia3ezu

      Nokia just came out of an abusive relationship with Microsoft. You’re expecting too much for their first Android phones.

      Also, a glance screen and camera button are not dealbreakers… only a few weirdos want them, not enough to make a significant dent on sales numbers. Same for those who want a removable battery. Deal with it.

      Hopefully, software and Android updates come swiftly to Nokia phones. No bloatware of Samsung, no crapware of Sony.

      • SIMO

        Then Samsung and LG must think we’re all weirdos. Always-on display is only getting more popular. And the Nokia 8 has it after all, further proving the point.

    • Kamal

      We just updated with official confirmation. Glance Screen is supported on Nokia 8.

      • Melwyn Castelino

        Was there only a single flagship launch bus ? and nothing else ??? . and any news on Nokia 9 .I hope its ip 68

        • serversurfer

          I´m also disappointed a little bit. Nevertheless the Nokia 8 is an awesome device, I hoped for more information in context of the rumoured Nokia 9 (I would prefer!)

      • Slawek

        Glance Screen and LCD display? Rather not possible. I have something like this in Jolla, but it is only a short time display. Please check it again at your sources.

        • Kamal

          We confirmed it with HMD before posting here.

          • Slawek

            Interesting.. Nokia 3, 5, 6 doesn’t have it. What about “Double Tap to wake up”? Real Nokia Must have it 😉

        • ANSARI5X5

          Just like my NOKIA Lumia 1520
          LCD with Glance. It works fine, but you’ll see the difference at a very dark night.

        • Glance works fine on LCD display. My Lumia 1320 has it 🙂
