An Android-based Nokia 8 could be released in the near future. Now, we have what seem to be the first legit renders showing the Nokia 8 in all its peak.
Revealed by Venture Beat, the renders allegedly present the front and back of the Nokia 8. Obviously, this is a handset that doesn’t stray too much from the design of HMD’s current line-up of smartphones (Nokia 6, Nokia 5, and Nokia 3).
Ever since Finnish startup HMD Global began building Android smartphones as the exclusive licensee of the Nokia name, fans of the storied brand have been waiting for the company to introduce a true flagship class device. And here it is — the Nokia 8.
A follow up to HMD’s introductory spring collection — which featured the Nokia 3, 5, and 6 — the Nokia 8 takes most of its design cues from that triumvirate. It’s not the first time we’ve seen this device, though; it leaked once before in a promotional video back in May, although it was both light on design details and lacking a definitive identity at that point
Now the headlined feature, the ZEISS camera lens?
What is ZEISS Camera lens?
ZEISS Camera Lenses Impressive creations of photography and cinematography have been developed through the lenses of ZEISS since 1890.
The yet-to-be-announced Nokia 8 has pretty thin bezels on the right and left side of its screen, but the top and bottom bezels are certainly on the thick side. There’s a fingerprint scanner on the bottom bezel, which is some great work to be developed as one of the newest and first companies to produce a flanked by capacitive navigation keys. On the back, the smartphone seemingly has a Zeiss-branded 13 MP dual camera – just as expected.
Unlike the Nokia Android phones that are currently available to buy, the Nokia 8 is a high-end device – a flagship. Its highlight features (besides the dual Zeiss camera) reportedly include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, a 1440 x 2560 pixels display (possibly measuring 5.3 inches), up to 6 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of internal memory.
The Nokia 8 likely runs near-stock Android 7.1 Nougat, and might be announced in about two weeks’ time, on July 31. It’s said that the handset will cost under €600, which means it could cost under $600 in the US. Unfortunately, for now, we don’t really know if the Nokia 8 will be officially released in North America. Nevertheless, we’ll bring more information about the phone as soon as we have it.
What do you say, does the Nokia 8 look like a device ready to compete with all the other flagship smartphones of 2017?
