Leaks related to the Nokia 8 seem to be popping up left right and center. A few days after the webpage for the phone briefly went live on the company official Chinese website, a Baidu user has posted photos of a Copper-Gold unit of the smartphone. The photos show the device from all angles and lines up with previous leaks. At the back is the vertically stacked dual-rear camera setup with the Nokia branding below it. At the front is the display with a home button, flanked by two capacitive buttons. The home button will most likely double as a fingerprint sensor. The top houses the 3.5mm audio jack, while at the bottom is the USB Type-C port, microphone and the speaker grill. Nokia already has copper coloured variants of its new Android powered devices. The company is offering a copper coloured version of the Nokia 6 in the US in partnership with Amazon.
The Nokia 8 is tipped to be unveiled on July 31 and is expected to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 platform. The device is tipped to sport a 5.3-inch QHD display with two 13MP cameras at the back. Besides a Copper-Gold variant, the device is said to be available in Blue, Steel and Gold-Blue colour variants. The price of the device is not yet known, but it is expected to be around EUR 589 (approx. Rs 43,500).
Alongside the Nokia 8, the company might also announce an entry-level smartphone. Dubbed the Nokia 2, the device is tipped to feature on-screen Android buttons, and may be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 212 platform.
