HMD Global is scheduled to announce the Nokia 8 for the Indian market later today. However, ahead of the official launch, Amazon India let the secret out with the product listing on its mobile app, revealing the price of phone. As per the listing, the Nokia 8 will be priced at Rs 36,999. Upon clicking on the listing, the ‘Notify Me’ option shows up.
It is important to understand that often product pages are accidentally made live before the actual launch. While we do have all reasons to believe the listing on a credible source, the company may or may not choose to price the product differently at the time of launch. Also, waiting for the official word will throw some light on the launch offers for the Nokia 8.
Key features of the Nokia 8 include dual-camera setup at the back, a dual-sight ‘bothie’ camera feature, OZO audio support, and Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC under the hood. Among the current flagship smartphones, the Nokia 8 takes on the likes of OnePlus 5 and Honor 8 Pro. All of these flaunt dual cameras as their USP.
