Nokia 8 will not be launched in USA : HMD Global

Nokia 9 renders hint at curved edge screen

The Nokia 9 will apparently sport a 5.5-inch display with very slim bezels and a curved glass panel on the front. The placement of the dual cameras on the Nokia 9 are a bit peculiar. So, it does make sense about the recently leaked Nokia 9, which offers similar specifications as that of the Nokia 8 with a few improvements as well. The upcoming Nokia flagship is also speculated to have a dimension of 140.9x72.9x7.5mm, together with an increased thickness of 8.9mm due to camera bump. Perhaps HMD Global is avoiding the possibility of criticism that it's copying the iPhone 7 Plus or the 8 Plus' design, but that's just speculation. The Nokia 9 is also expected to come with all the other usual Nokia features, like OZO audio and microphones for active noise cancellation. The fingerprint sensor of the smartphone is going to be placed on the rear panel and the antenna bands on the side panels. Nothing much is known about the connectivity options but we can see a USB Type-C port at the bottom of the leaked renders.

Apart from this, one important thing seen missing is a headphone jack. Meanwhile, HMD Global is working on another budget phone, which may be called Nokia 2. For hopeful USA fans, HMD Global has promised to release an exclusive lineup of Nokia phones that will be specially tailored for the US market.

Sad news for the Nokia fans in the United States of America, the motherland of the silicon valley. The device is expected to release later this year, or early next year, and could possibly arrive with Android Oreo onboard.

It looks like the Nokia 8 won't be coming to the USA after all.

"I apologize for the disappointing information", Fryover said.

The Nokia 8 has a full-metal exterior, a QHD display and is powered by the Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor.
