Remember Nokia 8? Well, That Wasn’t a Nokia Phone, Says Qualcomm



So, it’s quite a few days now as the rumors about next Nokia Phone i.e the Nokia 8 are being heard. Even we saw a video claiming that the phones shown in it are two different variants of Nokia 8. But, Qualcomm has finally said something that has put a stop to all these rumors and leaks. If you recall, a guy uploaded a video on YouTube claiming that the phone shown in it with Snapdragon logo is actually the Nokia 8 which will feature Snapdragon 835 processor. Interestingly, not one but two phones were shown in the video that were supposed to be Snapdragon 821 and 835 variants of Nokia 8.

That was not a Nokia Phone

Today, a letter published by Qualcomm’s spokeswoman Catherine Baker says that the phone filmed at the CES wasn’t Nokia Phone but the own reference unit of the company. Also, the company said that they never disclose the details of its reference design phones.  Here is what she said via the letter:

We do not disclose details of our reference design. We’ve seen a few stories rumoring what we demonstrated in our CES booth to be a Nokia device, those reports are not accurate, our 835 demos were on our own reference design devices which we use to demo our Snapdragon SOC’s every year

So, this is really funny how the Nokia 8 created a hype due to those videos. They are actually the same phones that Qualcomm uses every year to show its latest chipset. Chances are that there might be a new Nokia 8 type phone coming in future but surely, the images and videos leaked in past fea days aren’t of that device. So, the mystery has been finally solved.
