Nokia, the world’s first major mobile phone manufacturer, is finally getting back in the game with an all new line of flagship smartphones that aim to erase the failures the company has brought out in the past. And while the launches have already started, they were mostly for mid-range devices. A new and exciting premium smartphone is expected of Nokia soon enough, and until recently we all thought that it would be the Nokia 9. But recent rumors beg to differ.
A recent leak related to the Nokia 9 has actually unveiled that the next launch on the part of Nokia will be the Nokia 8. Still, the new Nokia 8 looked a whole lot like the Nokia 9 we were expecting, and on the inside it had exactly the same hardware. So what’s happening here? Well, a theory is emerging, and you might want to take a look at it.
So, many are now speculating that Nokia 8 and Nokia 9 are actually one and the same phone. Due to the fact that the most recent leaks associated the next launch with the Nokia 8 name might also indicate that there is no Nokia 9 coming. Another variant of this theory is that the Nokia 9 is still coming, and the Nokia 8 will actually be another mid-range, albeit a better one than what Nokia has put out so far.
The main point here is that Nokia 8 and Nokia 9 is one and the same phone. Therefore, either way you look at it, there is a cool and premium smartphone coming from Nokia, and it will most likely be the Nokia 9 as we knew it, but maybe under the name of Nokia 8, or maybe Nokia 8 is no longer an option, or…wow, this is confusing!
