The much-awaited Nokia’s flagship, Nokia 8 is set to launch as HMD Global has started sending out the invites for the event to be organized on mid-August. The release would finally calm the curiosity for the specification of the gadget as it has been on rumours from the past days after @evleaks revealed the specs and images of the handset.
