    Post This Nokia 8 is Probably Fake

    Yesterday Gizmochina found a listing on a popular Hong Kong e-commerce site for a new flagship Android smartphone from Nokia, the Nokia 8. There's just one problem: the images for the listing—on if you want to see for yourself—look like they were lifted from the concept video you see above.

    Whether or not the Nokia 8 is actually in the works is up for debate; Gizmochina has a fairly decent reputation, and a story on The Verge published last month tells of "more announcements" coming from Nokia at the Mobile World Congress, which starts next week. On the other hand, leaker Evan Blass says those announcements will actually be other downmarket phones to accompany the midrange Nokia 6.

    For what it's worth, here are Gizmochina's specs for the Nokia 8:

    5.7 inch Super AMOLED QHD display
    Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 (or 821) chip
    24 MP rear camera with OIS, Super EIS / 12 MP front-facing sensor
    64 GB or 128 GB storage, microSD up to 256 GB
    Android 7.0 Nougat

    Even if the pictures are fake, this former Nokia fanboy wants to believe!

    Certainly not SD835 as Samsung has exclusivity until April.

    There's been plenty of rumour circulating that Samsung has "first dibs" on the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset. Qualcomm however, talking at Mobile World Congress 2017, told us that there was no contractual exclusivity on the Snapdragon 835.

    The OEM has to make the decision about what fits with its launch strategy for a new device the best: the LG G6, for example, has been announced on the Snapdragon 821, meaning LG can bring the device to market sooner, rather than waiting for later chipsets.

    For those looking to use a newer chipset like the Snapdragon 835, pushing for a more immediate launch runs in conflict with the development cycle and the OEM would then have to decide whether to skip steps in testing and preparing the new hardware.
    Samsung not fully testing something before it goes to market? Nah can't be, the batteries were obviously a manufacturer issue, not a use issue.
