HMD Global have a magic wand that has the power to raise the dead, and they have been putting it to good use. So far, the Nokia phone manufacturer has resurrected the 3310, the Matrix phone, the X6, and it looks like a Nokia N8 2018 comeback is up next.
The company has a teaser on Weibo, where they mention the Nokia N-series and include a picture of the Nokia N8. For those who arrived in smartphones late, the Nokia N8 was the top cameraphone in its day. It was a legendary device with a superb 12 megapixels camera and Neon flash.
