US won't get Nokia 8, HMD confirms

Himanshu, 12 October 2017

While there have been strong indications that the Nokia 8 is headed to the United States, sadly, HMD has now confirmed that won't be the case. The company has made it clear that the device won't be launched in the US at all.

Rex Fryhover, head of sales of HMD US revealed this in a reply to a user query on email.

The reason, the executive said, is that the phone is not "properly banded" for the country. He did offered some hope to the Nokia fans in the US by saying they are developing a device portfolio with the US market as their main focus.
