Seems like HMD Global is all set to launch Nokia 8, on August 16. HMD Global has started sending invites for its launch event to be held in London on August 16, as per a report by The Verge. The invite, however, does not mention Nokia 8 but as per the report, the device will be the Nokia 8 indeed. Earlier, it was expected that the smartphone will debut on July 31 but today’s report has contradicted the earlier report.

Recently, the Copper Gold colour variant of the alleged Nokia 8 was leaked in pictures. Apart from the Copper colour variant, the device will be also available in blue and silver colours.
Recollecting some key specifications of Nokia 8, the smartphone bearing model-number TA-1004 is rumoured to feature a 5.3-inch Quad HD display with a resolution of 1440×2560 pixels and will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. It may have a 4GB RAM and 64 GB internal memory which can be further beefed by via microSD support.
