Interestingly, all of these pre-order prices are a bit under the EUR 599 (roughly Rs. 45,100) announced earlier. As for India, an HMD Global representative told Gadgets 360 the Nokia 8 India launch will be in early October, and the Nokia 8 price in India will be known closer to launch. The smartphone ships with Android 7.1.1 out of the box, but an HMD Global representative has also confirmed that the company is in advanced stages of testing Android O build for the Nokia 8.

For those unaware, the Nokia 8 puts the camera front and centre, with a vertical dual camera strip at the back, and the biggest camera innovation is the 'bothies' feature that allows users to capture videos and photos from both the front and rear cameras simultaneously.
