Just recently, the Nokia 8 variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB inbuilt storage was spotted on the US FCC website and while we were still anticipating the handset's US launch, HMD Global has reportedly confirmed its launch for Europe. Apart from the new variant's existence, it's pricing and colour option for Germany has also been revealed.
As per a report by WinFuture, the Nokia brand licensee will be launching the upcoming top-end variant of the Nokia 8 smartphone in Germany on October 20. The new variant is expected to be offered in just "Polished Blue" colour variant and be priced at EUR 669 (roughly Rs. 51,700) in the country, which is EUR 90 more than the standard Nokia 8 variant with 4GB of RAM.
Apart from the new storage and memory, the rest of the specifications offered by the new variant of the Nokia 8 remain the same. This means that the handset will pack a 5.3-inch 2K LCD display with Gorilla Glass 5 protection. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC.
As we have mentioned before, one of the biggest highlights of the Nokia 8 is its dual rear cameras. The Nokia 8 sports two 13-megapixel cameras with RGB and monochrome sensors. At global launch, the company heavily marketed the "bothies" feature which allows both the cameras at the front and back to capture images and videos at the same time. Nokia 8 cameras have been developed in partnership with Carl Zeiss. The Nokia 8 is IP54 rated, which means it is splash-proof.
The Nokia 8 houses a 3090mAh battery and the connectivity options include USB 3.1 Type-C connectivity as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack. It will be interesting to see how the new variant of the company's flagship variant performs in the market, which already seems to be quite competitive.
