The Nokia 8 will finally launch with Three Ireland today 5th October after some weeks behind the UK. However you may have seen the adverstising on the 3 Player too if you had been catching up on things too..

The Nokia 8 is the latest flagship from HMDGlobal and only yesterday they announced a much more beefed up spec which is the 6 GB RAM /128GB version which is to launch in the UK in November so hopefully we will see that version arrive on our shores soon after. The Nokia 8 will cost just €519.99 on pre-pay which comes in under reports recently seen and is quite a bargain at this price..
