The much awaited Nokia 8 finally became official earlier this week, following many months of leaks, rumors, and speculation. The handset is already available for pre-order in Germany, Australia and Russia, and it’s even cheaper than expected.
In Germany, you can pre-order from O2 or Mobilcom Debitel. The former carrier does have an online listing up, unlike the latter. O2 charges €577 for the device sans contract, which is quite a bit under the officially announced €599 level. At Mobilcom Debitel, the phone costs €579, which apparently represents the recommended retail price for Germany.
The Nokia 8 will also be available to order from Telekom, Media Markt, Saturn, and Amazon in the country. If you pre-order from O2 you get a free Nokia Steel smartwatch, worth €129.95 ($152).
On the other hand, in Russia you can pre-order a Nokia 8 from Megafon, for a price that approximately translates into $676.
It’s offered in all four colour options which are Polished Blue, Tempered Blue, Silver, and Polished Copper.
Lastly in Australia pre-orders for the Nokia 8 are are also live. Retailer JB Hi-fi has the phone listed on its website, and is offering it for AUD 899, which currently translates to around $712.
