HMD Global is constantly rolling out the Nokia 8 to more and more regions. The latest in the list is the Philippines where the Nokia 8 was launched on September 29th. The Nokia 8 is quite cheap at ₱29,999 (~ EUR 498).
Nokia 8 at PHP 29,999 is certainly the most affordable Snapdragon 835 powered smartphone in the country if we compare the top brands viz Samsung, Sony, LG, and HTC. However, it is still dearer than the likes of OnePlus and Huawei. The stock Android and the focus on updates is what keeps the Nokia smartphones at the top of the list. Nokia 8, 6, 5 and 3 are expected to receive Android Oreo update before anybody else.
Interested buyers from the Philippines can probably start buying the Nokia 8 from retail stores already. However, I could not trace a clear source which said that the phone is already available. If you come across one, please share in the comments.
