Nokia 7 and Nokia 8 with aluminium unibody and Snapdragon 660 chip in works


Nokia’s return to the smartphone industry at the Mobile World Congress 2017 was indeed noted. However, the company did not introduce its marquee devices. Nokia is reportedly working on the Nokia 7 and Nokia 8 with a metallic body. Both these Nokia phones are tipped to arrive in the top mid-range pricing segment.

The Nokia 8 made it to the news at the start of this year. Rumoured earlier as Nokia 8 Supreme, the Nokia 8 is expected to have Quad HD resolution toting display. There is no clarity on the screen size, but the previous rumours suggested it will be 5.7-inch.

The Nokia 8 will house the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset with Adreno 512 GPU in a tow. So it won’t pack the top-tier Snapdragon 835 as reportedly earlier.

The Nokia 7 is step down version of the Nokia 8. It will sport a 1080p display but will house the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset with Adreno 512 GPU.

The camera design will be different for both the phones. In fact, the Nokia 8 may use Carl Zeiss optics for its camera configuration. Nokia 7 and Nokia 8 will come with slim bezels and a unibody aluminium frame. Both phones will incorporate a fingerprint scanner and support fast charging.

As of now, Nokia working to push Nokia 3, Nokia 5, and Nokia 6 in several markets by the second quarter. Till that happens, we doubt if the company will bring the Nokia 7 and Nokia 8 any time soon. Nokia plans to launch seven smartphones this year and three have been launched already.
