Earlier this week, the first clear press render of the upcoming Nokia 8 flagship smartphone had surfaced online. A few new images showing a Nokia 8 production unit in “Gold Copper” shade have now appeared on Baidu forums. While the device seen in the images does appear to be working, there is no Zeiss logo at the back. However, the press render shared by Evan Blass makes it quite clear that the final retail units will indeed have the Zeiss logo placed between the dual camera lenses and the LED flash module. On the front, we see a physical home button with the fingerprint sensor embedded inside it.
Even though HMD Global is yet to confirm anything officially, we expect the Nokia 8 to be made official by the end of this month. A Scandinavian retailer listing had suggested that the smartphone will be launched on the 31st of July. The VentureBeat report by Evan Blass also hinted at the possibility of the Nokia 8 being made official on the same date.
The Nokia 8 is rumored to feature a 5.3-inch display with 1440 x 2560 Quad HD resolution, smaller than most new flagship smartphones released this year. Under the hood, it will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core chipset. In terms of memory, the smartphone could be available in 4GB RAM and 6GB RAM variants. A variant with 8GB of RAM was spotted on Geekbench a few weeks back, so there is a possibility of the Nokia 8 being offered with 8GB of RAM in select markets such as China. In the camera department, Nokia 8 will boast a 13MP + 13MP Zeiss dual-camera setup with a dual-tone LED flash.
In Europe, the Nokia 8 is likely to be priced around the 600 euro mark, which means it will be priced slightly lower than most 2017 flagship smartphones in other markets as well.
