If the rumors originating in the #United States and China are taken into account, then HMD has named the latest flagship as #nokia 8, and not Nokia 9. Pictures of the mobile phone have leaked in what looks like marketing material in the United States. One of the pictures shows that the Nokia 8 has a bezel-less design, but camera position is different from the three sketches send to us in a tip. We feel that the phone's look and specs are different from what we have seen in previous leaks. Also, if this is the real deal, an Iris scanner and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor are confirmed.
