Nokia 8 Android smartphone listed online before launch

A new Nokia Android smartphone has been spotted on the Chinese e-commerce website up for pre-registrations. The alleged Nokia 8 is now listed on JD.com in China and comes with a price tag of CNY 3,188 (roughly Rs. 31,000).

It can not be confirmed for now whether the online listing of the Nokia 8 is authentic or not.

With less than a week left in the event slotted by HMD Global on Sunday, the e-commerce listing definitely raises hope that the Nokia 8 will be announced. The images accompanied in the online listing appear to show concept renders of a Nokia smartphone with near bezel-less display.

Coming to Nokia 8 specs, the smartphone is said to be powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 835 processor while sport a 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display. The device is further likely to feature a 24-megapixel rear camera with OIS alongside a 12-megapixel front camera.

Nokia 8 is expected to arrive in two storage versions - 64GB and 128GB. Both the models are rumoured to come with expandable storage support via microSD card slot (up to 256GB). It is said to run Android 7.0 Nougat.

The official HMD Global event is set to take place in Barcelona on Sunday, and it will kick off at 4:30pm local time (9pm IST).
