Nokia 8 leak turns out to be fake

Allegged image of Nokia 8 Supreme variants turned out not to be what the source claims
Allegged Nokia 8 Supreme variants
This Qualcomm Snapdragon 835-powered Nokia 8 Supreme story everyone talked about this week turned out to be a fake coming from a source that has zero evidence and has come out with similar fake rumors in the past as well.

Not long after CES 2017 closed its gates, a rumor about two handsets that were on display started to spin around, claiming that Qualcomm had unleashed the Nokia 8 flagship back in Las Vegas. The story also involved a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, a 24 MP primary camera with optical stabilization, and other top-of-the-line specs and features. Sadly, it all turns out to be fake.

First, there is the source of the leak - the YouTube channel Total Tech Media is a rebrand of the TK Tech News channel. The person behind the name was exposed as a fraudster, well-known leakster Evan Blass accusing him of theft, while many of the leaks coming from TK Tech News turned out to be nothing but poor attempts to come out with believable rumors without any proof.

This time, leaving the source aside, the lack of proof issue arises once again - the devices shown in the videos claiming them to be Nokia 8 Supreme carry no trace of Nokia branding. In the end, what we have is a custom device without any branding that Qualcomm built with a Snapdragon 835 processor inside to showcase the chip's imaging capabilities and nothing more.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
