The only thing the US will be getting from the Nokia 8 is a snub

The Nokia 8 was released a few months ago and while it was a solid offering by the HMD, it didn't come with a lot of the trappings being offered by other flagships. A company executive, in an email to a fan query, has confirmed that the flagship will not be sold in the US.

The Nokia 8, HMD Global's flagship, was released a few months ago to a mostly positive reception. The phone has made its way through Europe and Asia but users in the US are up for a massive disappointment, with HMD confirming that the flagship will be skipping the journey to the States.

The source of the information, an email from HMD's Head of Sales in the US, Rex Fryhover, in reply to a query by a user, is definite, with the executive claiming that the device will not be sold in the US due to banding issues. The email went on to say that future devices are likely to be available in the US, which gives fans some hope for the upcoming bezel-less Nokia 9.

From a sales perspective, it's a great decision by the company, as the Nokia 8 would be competing against flagships like the HTC U11, LG V30, and the Pixels, and without much hope for victory, either. The Nokia 9 is a much safer bet for the Finnish manufacturers. Besides, people who really need the Nokia 8 can always place an order online, albeit at the cost of local customer service.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
