Highlights
  • Nokia 8 new benchmark results spotted online
  • The Nokia 8 may sport a 5.2-inch or 5.3-inch display
  • It is tipped to be powered by the Snapdragon 835 SoC

The Nokia 8 flagship smartphone is largely expected to launch on August 16 at HMD Global's event in London. The smartphone has been leaked on several occasions in the past, and even though the rumoured design is not so appealing, the Nokia 8 buzz refuses to die down. Now, fresh photos of the Nokia 8 smartphone have emerged showing off benchmark specifications on the screen.

The photos were spotted on SlashLeaks, with the model number TA-1012 - which has been associated with the Nokia 8 in the past as well. The benchmark tips the Nokia 8 to run on Android 7.1.1 Nougat, be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC paired with 4GB of RAM, and sport a QHD (1440x2560 pixels) display. The Nokia 8 is listed to have 559ppi pixel density, and from this we can deduce that the smartphone will have either a 5.2-inch or 5.3-inch display.

The benchmark is seen on the Nokia 8 smartphone, but the phone is barely visible, thanks to the horrible lighting. In any case, we have seen several renders of the Nokia 8 in the past to know of its aesthetic. Past renders suggest that the Nokia 8 will sport sufficient bezel, capacitive buttons for navigation, and a home button underneath which the fingerprint scanner will be integrated. It seems to sport a metal body and the biggest highlight is the vertical dual camera strip at the back, courtesy Carl Zeiss optics. Interestingly, there are four holes in the camera ring - two for sensors, one for flash, and the last one is presumed to be for laser autofocus. However, that's just pure speculation, and the fourth hole could serve a completely different purpose.

The Nokia 8 volume and power keys are both housed on the right edge of the smartphone. Renders also suggest that the 3.5mm audio jack sits on the top edge, while it will sport a Micro-USB port i.e. no fast charging. At launch, the Nokia 8 may be available in four colour options - Blue, Steel, Gold/Blue, and Gold/Copper.

The smartphone is tipped to be priced at EUR 517.42 (roughly Rs. 38,900), and in India, it is expected to be priced at Rs. 44,999. The Nokia 8 is rumoured to also come with two 13-megapixel sensors at the back, and offer 64GB of built-in storage.
