Nokia 8 is all set to be unveiled on August 16, and HMD Global has already sent out the invites for the event. With just a week to the event, the leaks surrounding the Nokia flagship device have intensified. While previous rumors have already given a fair idea regarding the features and specifications of the smartphone, the latest leaks give a closer look at the specifications. Nokia 8 will be unveiled in London, and will then be announced in other regions. The smartphone is expected to come with the model number TA-1012.

As per the latest image leaks from Slashleaks, the Nokia 8 smartphone will come with Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS out-of-the-box. The images are blurry and in low light, so they do not give an idea of the smartphone’s design, but there is nothing that stands out. Below the display are the two capacitive backlit buttons.

On the processor front, Nokia 8 is expected to come with a Snapdragon 835 chipset under the hood. There has been some confusion regarding the RAM of the smartphone while some reports suggested that the RAM might be 6GB, the latest leak reveals the RAM to be 4GB. Considering Nokia 8 will compete with the likes of OnePlus 5 and the Honor 8 Pro, the lesser RAM might be a deterrent for the device. However, rumors have also hinted at multiple variants of the smartphone and the 4GB RAM might just be the base variant. ALSO READ:

The leaks do not give any idea of the display size, but the Pixel density and the count suggests that the device will come with a display between 5.2 and 5.3-inches. The resolution is QHD. Interestingly, while there might be more RAM variants, there seems to be just the one 64GB internal storage option. Coming to the camera, a secondary leak by Chinese site VTechgraphy suggests that the Nokia 8 will come with two 13-megapixel rear cameras, one with a monochrome sensor and the other with RGB sensor. The front camera will also come with a 13-megapixel resolution. Not just the back camera, but even the front camera will be capable of taking 4K videos. None of the leaks have mentioned the battery details. ALSO READ:

Nokia 8 has been rumored to be priced around EUR 520 (approximately Rs 39,000) for the base variant. Nokia recently shared a Cat Day video on Facebook, which shows a yet-to-be-unveiled Nokia device. The smartphone in the video comes with no bezels on the side and a curved display. While it is likely to be the upcoming Nokia 8, it could also be the first look at the Nokia 9 flagship device, also expected to be announced later this year. However, the leaks are only tentative for now, and with just a week to go, it might be better to just wait for the official unveiling. ALSO READ:
