Nokia's marketing partner HMD Global will be releasing the third Nokia branded Android smartphone Nokia 6 starting August 23 in India, the company teased on Amazon India website.

Nokia smartphones enthusiasts will have the chance to purchase Nokia 5 and 6 models as the HMD Global said that company is very humbled by the Indian market's response to the Nokia 3, and that it will bring the Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 into the market by mid-August. But the Nokia 9 flagship with high-end specifications will be followed by another premium mid-range, which could be the Nokia 8. Latest information on this Nokia flagship device indicates that Nokia will make use of the latest processor from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 835 to power their flagship.

Singer Aaron Carter arrested in Georgia
Pop star Aaron Carter was arrested Saturday in Georgia for driving under the influence and drug possession, police said. ABC News reports that his female companion Madison Parker , who was riding in the vehicle, was arrested as well.

Speculations are rife that Nokia 8 will have a 5.7-inch QHD (2K: 2560x1440p) screen and come with dual-camera on the back, most probably with Carl Zeiss lens. After its launch Nokia 3 and Nokia 5 were made available offline before the launch of Nokia 6. It is essentially the same phone that was making rounds in the internet under the name of Nokia 9, but with a different name. As of now it is also possible that the company might launch the phone in a 6/8GB RAM variant with more storage, but it is not clear. Further, the device will come with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

Four colour schemes are now planned for the Nokia 8? A Scandinavian retailer has allegedly claimed that the phone will go on sale on July 31, and with a price tag of approx Rs 43,415. Earlier in the month, HMD Global Oy had confirmed its collaboration with the world renowned German optics firm for cameras in future Nokia phones including the ones launching in the second half of 2017. However, those Nokia 8 renders aren't legitimate, claim the media reports.
