Qualcomm says no, that isn’t a Nokia (8)

| January 16, 2017 | 3 Replies

You may have read about the little drama that unfolded last week as the claimed second batch of ‘Nokia 8 leaks from a friend Russia’  turned out to be hands on photos from a German tech blog of Qualcomm’s reference devices. Certain videos and pictures got deleted and there was an angry response video from total tech accepting that perhaps he should have checked the source as well as telling off Android authority oddly enough advising them to fact check their info on him. Anyway, tuning down that episode of reality TV, Qualcomm replied to an email as seen above and they also deny the pictured device being a Nokia one,  saying it’s their OWN device. Some have held on to the possibility it might have been manufactured by FIH/Foxconn and thus could be in some form a Nokia later.


This should provide comfort for those freaked out by the size/design (which for a chip reference device isn’t their priority).

Even if this has nothing to do with Nokia, ANY device that would sport a SD835 should at least have the features demoed by the reference handset.

Cheers Martin for the tip!

    Ermmm , what Baker said was that: 1) Qualcomm doesn’t disclose details of their reference design, singular.2) That rumours that the demo device showing the 835 chipset was the Nokia 8 weren’t accurate; Baker never said that they weren’t true… 3) The 835 demo device was their own reference design device . Note the fancy footwork here,,
    As I said in earlier posts, the Nokia 6 looks like the G4 plus. Even many of the specs are the same! Put yourself in HMD’s place : they’re a small startup company tasked with developing Nokia Androids yet they don’t have a lot of R&D cash. So theydid what BlackBerry did. Got together with Foxconn, selected the G4 plus reference design and tweaked it. Makes sense.
    I’M thinking QC did the same thing . Their reference design may or may not have been the same one HMD is using for the 8 . We’ll see soon enough!
