Is this our first look at the Nokia 8? [Update]

Comments

    I really hope Nokia starts selling their phones in Canada some day. I know you can buy the Nokia 6 and perhaps future Nokias from Amazon USA, but I’d want official warranty support in Canada. Hopefully Nokia keeps their commitment to regular software/security updates.

      Why? (I’m not trying to be rude,I’m genuinely asking)

    • Hello Moto ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Pure stock Android with supposedly faster updates than LG/Samsung. Hopefully better quality hardware than the problematic Pixel (check Reddit/forums) and LG’s bootlooping phones. And hopefully a slightly lower price point than a Pixel/S8.

      Sure a OnePlus 5 could fit the bill, but I’ve already been burned by them after purchasing a OnePlus 2 [they cancelled a promised update, and their “bug fixes” have only created more (show-stopping) bugs and they only issue the “bug fixes” 4-6 months apart]. Not to mention the OP5 is now a dud (jelly scroll, etc.), probably a low resale value now as well.

      Additionally, I don’t trust LG yet after all their bootlooping/bricking phones, G4, G5, Nexus 5x, my own Nexus 5.

      The S8 and Pixel are priced quite a bit higher ($1000+) than I’d like (preferably between $650 and $850).

      ^This so much, in Canada it’s so damn hard to find a good stock or stock Android phone that isn’t over 1k
      Samsung/LG both have horrible UX and slow software updates, HTC doesn’t really even seem to exist anymore…One Plus just has too many issues and their prices are creeping up, Sony doesn’t really like to sell to Canada and even then has a slow update record or turns features off (fingerprinter reader on XZ models ) I don’t trust any of the Chinese brands ( ZTE/Huawei/etc) and Moto is almost a no-show except for it’s overpriced mid-tier devices which also cost a ton and have horrible and slow updates despite being near stock.

      Pixel would be best but it’s hard to shallow a 1k price tag just to have 128gb storage and stock.

      Although, I’m not holding my breath. From what I’ve read, the Nokia 8 could very well cost $1000 CAD if it comes to Canada, or if you buy it from the U.S.

      Yeah I read that as well, it’s suppose to be their most high end but it’s crazy that when the Nexus 6p came out two years ago it cost at most about $750 and that was with the 128gb price point…what happened?

    • Hello Moto ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Oil prices tanked, then the Canadian dollar followed 🙁

    • Daniel Szilagyi

      Funny that gas prices are still up despite that drop in value…here in Vancouver it’s still hovering around $1.14-1.20? that’s pretty close to what the prices were when it was over $100 a barrel.

      But I know what you mean, hopefully some sanity comes back…I really don’t feel like paying 1k for just a good phone, thankfully my 6p has been good

      ^this! So hard! I like androids but all those reason above are nudging me towards iPhone.

    • Word

      Pretty solid reasoning. I didn’t realize it would be stock Android, that’s definitely a bonus.

  • Whome

    What I want is a smartphone that doesn’t heat up when playing games on it. A phone that will last at least 3 years and phone that has memory dedicated to the OS and does not use up the memory on the phone itself.

    SD835 w/ 4/6GB RAM, sounds like a flagship. I know Nokia isn’t what it used to be, but I really hope this is a hit. More competition is always better.

    Looks like a Galaxy S2.
