Nokia 8 will not be launched in USA : HMD Global

Nokia 8, the flagship smartphone from HMD Global is not launching the US due to banding issues and one can expect new flagship phone from HMD

Sad news for the Nokia fans in the United States of America, the motherland of the silicon valley. The land that appreciates new technology was fascinatingly waiting for the premium flagship smartphone from the legendary brand Nokia, AKA, the Nokia 8. The smartphone offers top of the line specifications and unprecedented features which are comparable to the other premium flagship smartphones in the America.

So, in an e-mail sent to enthusiasts, the email explains that the device is not banded properly, which means that the device doesn’t support major 3G and LTE bands and it doesn’t make any sense to have a smartphone, that doesn’t support the standard LTE bands.

However, the company didn’t disappoint him totally, as the email said that, one can stay tuned in the future for the future upcoming devices. 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.

So, here is the list of the specifications for the upcoming Nokia 9, that might get launched in the United States of America.

The Nokia 9 will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Octa-core SoC, paired with 6 GB RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB onboard flash storage with a dedicated micro SD card slot. In terms of connectivity, the device offers either single SIM card slot or a dual SIM card slot (depending on the region) with 4G LTE and  VoLte capability.

With respect to the camera capability, the device is expected to offer dual rear-camera setup with different types of implementation when compared to Nokia 8 with the same Carl Zeis lens and optical image stabilisation with 4K video recording capability. On the front, the device offers an 8 MP selfie shooter with 1080p video recording capability.

Coming to the design and build quality, the device offers all glass unibody design with features like wireless charging as well as the fancy colourful back cases. However, one thing that might disappoint the fan is the fact that, the OEM is going to ditch the 3.5 mm headphone jack in favour of  USB type C port. Finally, coming to the operating system, the device will offer Android Oreo 8.0 out of the box with stock Android user experience. What do you think about the Nokia 8 and Nokia 9? Is using 3.5 mm headphone jack is something certified as the moving forward move? Let’s share your views in the comments below.
