Nokia 8 is expected to be the true flagship Nokia Android phone, and though it was rumoured to launch on July 21, that did not come to be. Of course, that has just ensured leaks continue, and this time the smartphone has been spotted in live images. This leak gives us a look at the smartphone from all angles, and confirms the dual camera setup, which had been rumoured from the start. On the other hand, it shows the smartphone does not have Zeiss branding, even though the two companies recently signed an agreement for collaboration.
These photos were leaked on Chinese social site Baidu, and the front and back of the Nokia 8 has been snapped. The back of the smartphone sports the dual camera vertical setup with flash, and as mentioned above, with no Carl Zeiss logo is in sight. Presumably, this is a prototype and not the final unit. The Nokia 8 is seen sporting a Copper/ Gold colour variant; however Blue and Steel variants have been spotted in the past as well. The leaked Nokia 8 images corroborate with renders in the past, and the 3.5mm audio jack is seen on the top edge of the smartphone. Interestingly, this unit sports a Micro-USB port indicating that there might not be fast charging integrated. The display is switched on showing off the UI, and also indicating that the launch is indeed near.
The smartphone was earlier tipped to be launched on July 31 and that could very well be when the smartphone will be unveiled. The Nokia 8 price is largely expected to be EUR 589 (roughly Rs. 43,400). At launch, the Nokia 8 may be available in four colour options - Blue, Steel, Gold/Blue, and Gold/Copper.
The Nokia 8 is tipped to run on Android 7.1 Nougat and sport a 5.3-inch QHD display. It is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 835 processor. Nokia 8 may launch with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage initially, though the rumoured 6GB RAM and 8GB RAM variants may see the light of the day a little bit later. Two 13-megapixel rear lenses from Carl Zeiss are a possibility, and a 13-megapix3el front camera is expected as well. The dimensions of the Nokia 8 are tipped to be at 151.55x73.7mm.
