While the tease of AI portrait selfies and bokeh on the rear camera appeals 8211; no mention of bothies? 8211; what doesn8217;t seem to fit at the moment is the specs.
The Nokia 8 was launched as a flagship level device, with Snapdragon 835 in 2017, but the update appears to step over to Snapdragon 710, if rumours are to be believed.
The leaked specs come from a device that was internally known as Phoenix and shared by Nokia Power User, making it look as though the Nokia 8.1 is an international version of the Nokia X7 that8217;s already available in China. Why the change in name? Probably because there was a Nokia X7 launched in 2011 on the old Symbian platform.
It certainly looks like the same handset (and there8217;s the exact same video for the X7 on the Nokia website) and you8217;ll be getting Android 9 Pie 8211; on the Android One programme 8211; a dual rear Zeiss camera with optical image stabilisation and a pairing of 12- and 13-megapixel cameras, and a 20-megapixel camera on the front.
