The company did not say what regions will the phone launch exactly, though it seems like it will not be available in the US or China. HMD Global did not specifically say that the phone will not launch in those areas, but the company did say that launching the Nokia 8 in the US and China is complicated for HMD Global, which suggests that they will focus on some other regions, like Europe and Latin America. In any case, the company will probably shared more detail regarding this as the phone’s release comes closer, but for now, all we have is the phone’s price, and that’s pretty much it. Now, as far as the device itself is concerned, the Nokia 8 is a metal-clad phone, it is made out of high-quality aluminum, and it comes with a front-facing fingerprint scanner which is flanked by two capacitive buttons. The Nokia 8 also sports a dual camera setup on the back, and comes with OZO audio. The phone’s optics were developed in collaboration with ZEISS optics, so it will be interesting to see how well those cameras perform.
