Today, images of upcoming Nokia 8 flagship with dual-camera Zeiss optics leaked online. Earlier this month, HMD Global revealed its Zeiss partnership. HMD is now bringing back the Zeiss branding on Nokia-branded phones, and it appears the first one will emerge later this month.
HMD is expected to launch a Nokia 8 handset on July 31st, with dual-cameras. Both cameras are said to be 13 megapixels and include Carl Zeiss optics.
The Nokia 8 may feature a 5.3-inch display (2560 x 1440), a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB or 6GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and dual-SIM models. The phone will come in blue, silver and gold versions.
This phone is going to be HMD’s high-end Nokia-branded device, and will likely ship with a pure version of Android 7.1.1 Nougat. It seems that HMD is sticking with physical keys and larger display bezels for its Nokia-branded flagship device.
The Nokia 8 expected to cost around $675. It’s not clear at this stage if Nokia plans to release the Nokia 8 in North America. Nokia 6, 5 and 3 smartphones are already available in the market.
