The Nokia 8 flagship is available to pre-order in the UK

by John_A

There’s a new Nokia flagship in town. Okay, so the “Nokia” name is a bit of a red herring, given it’s now HMD Global, a young Finnish startup, using the brand for a fresh suite of Android phones. (Oh, and a reborn Nokia 3310.) Still, the Nokia 8 is a top-end phone bearing the old iconic logo. And starting today, it’s up for pre-order in the UK. You can reserve the handset in steel or “tempered blue” for £499 from Carphone Warehouse, EE, Virgin Mobile and It’ll then hit store shelves on September 13th in every retailer you would expect, including Amazon and John Lewis.

The phone, if you need a refresher, comes with a 5.3-inch, 2560 x 1440 display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and 4GB of RAM. Pretty standard stuff for an Android flagship this year. The design, however, is a little different. The aforementioned blue and copper variants are unusual in a marketplace awash with black and silver slabs. The bezels are noticeable, especially in comparison to Samsung and LG’s latest offerings. Still, it’s an attractive device running stock Android out of the box. The dual-camera system on the back is also decent, but far from best in class.
