Back in August, HMD Global unveiled their flagship smartphone dubbed Nokia 8 with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage capacity at an event in London.
While the Nokia fans are eagerly anticipating the release of this smartphone in the global markets, a report tipped that the company is planning to unveil a high-end variant of the smartphone with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. The variants of Nokia 8 with the model numbers TA-1004 and TA-1012 were spotted on the FCC website tipping that the launch is not far away.
Now, a WinFuture report (Via: TheAndroidSoul) has come up with some interesting information for the Nokia fans out there. According to the report, the Nokia 8 with 6GB RAM will be unveiled in the next month. To be specific, the report tips that the 6GB Nokia 8 will go on sale starting from October 20 in Germany. The availability of the upgraded variant of the smartphone in the other countries remains unknown for now.
As the top end variant of the Nokia 8 will be packed with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage space, we can expect it to be priced higher than the standard variant. Besides the change in the RAM and storage capacity, there appear to be no changes in terms of specifications and design.
