Nokia 8 photos hint at dual-cameras, copper gold color variant

This is the first look at a Nokia 8 in working condition.


Nokia 8 has seen multiple leaks in the past, but this is the first time a leak flaunting a working smartphone has emerged online. HMD Global is expected to announce the Nokia 8 on August 16, and the company has already rolled out invites for the event. Nokia 8 was initially expected to debut at MWC 2017, but the announcement has been postponed. It is reportedly the Nokia flagship for 2017, and will be more premium and come with top-of-the-line specs when compared to the existing Nokia Android devices. The latest leak shows the Nokia 8 in a new color, one which hasn’t been spotted before. Also Read - Airtel uses Nokia equipment to successfully conduct first 5G trial in Eastern India

Leaked by Chinese Baidu and IT Home simultaneously, the images give an idea of the working of the phone. This is not the first time images of the phone have emerged, and the continuous leaks suggest that the copper-gold variant is most likely to be one among the other colors unveiled at the event. The images show the phone in a bright copper-gold metallic finish with a glossy back. While the photos lean towards an orangish shade, the report mentions that the final look will be different. The shiny back reminds one of the recently unveiled HTC U11.



Nokia 8 has been rumored to sport a Carl Zeiss lens on the back. However, the latest leaks do not show the Carl Zeiss logo or any mention of the same around the camera module. However, as the image is only of a prototype and not the actual device, there could be certain changes before HMD Global makes the phone official. The dual rear camera setup is in keeping with the previous leaks, and shows a vertical lens placement in the middle. Interestingly, there is no fingerprint scanner visible on the front or the back of the device in the leaks. While previous leaks showed a front-mounted sensor, the bottom bezel on the new leaks is entirely bare except for the two backlit capacitive buttons. ALSO READ:

The leaked images show the phone running on Android Nougat OS. Apart from copper gold and the leaked blue colored variants, the Nokia 8 is also expected to come in black and silver shades. In the new leaks, the Nokia branding under the camera module is covered with tape. The smartphone is also expected to come with a USB-C type port on the bottom along with a speaker grille and a 3.5-mm headphone jack on the top. While the copper shade is not new with Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 sporting it, the copper gold variant will be slightly different suggests the report. ALSO READ:

In terms of other specifications, Nokia 8 is expected to feature a 5.3-inch full HD (1080p) display, and a Snapdragon 835 chipset under the hood. There are conflicting reports as to the display size as some reports have also suggested a larger 5.7-inch display. Looking at the current market flagship trend, a larger display seems more feasible. The RAM is likely to be 4GB or 6GB with 64GB internal storage. The smartphone will come with Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging technology though the battery capacity remains unknown. ALSO READ:
