We have seen “Nokia 8 Sirocco” names emerging via official certification and APK tear-down. Now, our sources claim that a Nokia 8 Pro (retail name) is in works too. It will be one of the 2018 Nokia flagships and is targeted at an August-September release to markets.
We also hear that there is no Nokia 10 in works and Nokia 8 Pro may be what we believed to be the Nokia 10 earlier. While it sounds a bit unexpected our sources insist the name is indeed Nokia 8 Pro.
As you may have already guessed it will be powered by Snapdragon 845. The “Pro” in Nokia 8 Pro is because of the advanced camera features and innovations it will pack we hear. If this tip is correct Nokia 8 Pro will feature the earlier rumored Penta-lens camera module with rotating Zoom camera tech from Zeiss.
The Nokia 8 Pro will have Fingerprint sensor below the camera module on the back as shown in the leaked sketch above. One can notice the design similarity with Nokia 9 that is also supposed to feature 3D glass back and front.
The source of the original rumor/leak had claimed that Nokia 8 Pro will feature an 18:9 display and will come with double-glass (both front and back) design comparable to Nokia 9 aka Nokia 8 Sirocco.
While the source of this information is a trusted one, companies tend to change retail names at a later stage too. So, it is possible that it comes out with a retail name other than Nokia 8 Pro.
