In fact, images of the device bearing dual Carl Zeiss lenses have already been outed by known leaksters. A Copper Gold variant of the Nokia 8 has also been doing the rounds on the web lately.

As Nokia and HMD Global prepare to launch the new Nokia 8, here’s all the information you need to watch the launch live, along with details on price expectations, rumoured features, specifications and more.

About Nokia 8

Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 The phone is rumoured to pack 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Nokia 8 is rumoured to pack a 24-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 12-megapixel front shooter for selfies.

The Nokia 8 is rumoured to run Android 7.0 and be powered by a 3999mAh non removable battery.

The Nokia 8 tipped to be a single SIM (GSM) smartphone that will accept a Micro-SIM. Connectivity options are said to include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, USB OTG and 4G. Sensors on the phone are rumoured to include Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Ambient light sensor and Gyroscope.

Nokia 8 specifications- Hardware

At the hardware front, the Nokia 8 will tick all of the right boxes. First and foremost, rumors say that it will be powered by a Snapdragon 835 SoC, which happens to be the best mobile chip Qualcomm currently has to offer. It is an energy-efficient piece of silicon too, built on a modern, 10nm process. The chip will be backed by 4GB of RAM, which is an adequate amount, but a 6GB version is expected to be available as well. Storage is said to stand at 64GB – enough for plenty of photos and video – with the option for expansion via microSD cards. An audio jack is also present, by the way. Battery capacity is still a mystery.
As far as software goes, leaks have shown the Nokia 8 running Android 8.0.0, which is the next major release of Google’s mobile OS, also known as Android O. This leads us to believe that the phone will run Google’s latest software out of the box – in a clean form mostly free of alterations.

Nokia 8 Specifications- Camera

The Nokia 8 will have a dual camera with Zeiss optics

That dual camera we mentioned earlier could end up being one of the Nokia 8’s biggest selling points. Rumors claim that the setup is comprised of a regular main camera and a secondary one that shoots in black and white, much like what Huawei has been using for its flagship phones recently. The strength of such a camera arrangement is that a monochrome camera is more sensitive to light, hence it can capture more detail with less noise than a color counterpart. Visual information from both sensors can be combined in software to produce sharper, higher-quality images, even in low light. Plus, you’ll be able to shoot dramatic, monochrome images for your Instagramfollowers’ viewing pleasure.

At the front, the Nokia 8 is expected to sport a 13MP camera. Autofocus hasn’t been mentioned so far, but we won’t be surprised by its presence, seeing that the mid-range Nokia 6 has an auto-focus selfie shooter.

Nokia 8 Specifications- Design

In the fast-moving smartphone world, HMD is definitely behind when it comes to design. The device looks a lot like the other budget-conscious Nokia HMD phones—and a lot like a phone design from last year. There are tall top and bottom bezels, capacitive hardware navigation buttons, and a front fingerprint reader. That’s disappointing given the more modern slim-bezel designs we’ve seen from Samsung, LG, Xiaomi, and (if it ever launches) Essential. I think the Nokia 8 will need a competitive price to pair with the old-school design, something that puts it in “budget flagship” territory with the similarly specced, similarly designed OnePlus 5.

Nokia 8 Specifications – USP [Unique Selling Price]

The most talked about feature of the Nokia 8 according to Nokia 8 Specifications and design is its dual camera setup. Leaks have almost confirmed that the smartphone will sport dual Carl Zeiss lenses, placed vertically instead of horizontally. Images of the smartphone posted by leakster Evan Blass showed the camera enclosure surrounded by a metal ring, so it could have a slight bump. One can also see a dual LED flash setup at the back of the Nokia 8. Previous reports indicate that the camera pair on the Nokia 8 will come with a 13MP resolution. Also spotted at the back is a model number TA-1012 and a “Designed by HMD Global” inscription.

Another factor to take note is of is Nokia’s “Pure Android promise.” Expect the Nokia 8 to launch with the latest version of Android Nougat. It will also be one of the first few devices to get the Android O update, when Google officially releases the same.

In the specs department, the Nokia 8 is expected to run on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 platform. It is also believed to have two RAM options, 4GB and 8GB. The entire package is said to be powered by a 3,000 mAh battery.

So, here’s everything you need to know prior to the Nokia 8 launch on August 16. We will be covering the launch live and will get you all the details on the new Nokia flagship as soon as it’s announced.

Nokia 8 Specifications- Price and Release Date

First, the good news: it is speculated that the Nokia 8 will be aggressively priced, so it might be one of the cheaper high-end Android phones around when it is released. Rumors are pointing at an off-contract price of 520 euro in Europe, which would suggest a 520$ price if the phone ever comes to the US. But at the same time, we’re skeptical about HMD Global’s ability to launch this phone quickly after seeing how its Nokia 6, Nokia 5, and Nokia 3 took forever to launch globally.
The Nokia 8 is expected to be announced at an official event in London at 7:30PM local time (that’s 2:30PM Eastern, 11:30AM Pacific). At this time we’re not sure if the announcement will be livestreamed, but we’ll share a link with you if one becomes available. Stay tuned for more!

Watch the Live launch event of Nokia 8

HMD Global will live-stream the launch even in London on its official Nokia website as well as the Nokia Mobile YouTube page. The Nokia Mobile twitter handle has also posted a tweet showing YouTubers Jonathan Morrison and MoreAliA who are expected to be present at the Nokia 8 unveiling. The launch event can also be caught at their YouTube pages.
