Nokia 8 Leaks, Reveals Zeiss-Branded Rear Cameras

A new report out of VentureBeat has detailed HMD Global’s upcoming Nokia 8 flagship smartphone that’s expected to arrive July 31st. It features high-end specifications that align with what others are offering nowadays such as Samsung with the Galaxy S8 and HTC with the U11.

But as you can see in the above picture, it looks like the Nokia 8 will be the first to sport Zeiss-branded cameras. We recently heard that a new partnership between HMD Global and Carl Zeiss would allow the latter to include its lenses on Nokia-branded smartphones, and it looks like this will be the introductory device.

Specifically, the Nokia 8 will sport two 13MP cameras with Zeiss optics. While details remain slim as to how the cameras will actually work, it’s likely they’ll offer telephoto capabilities similar to the iPhone 7 Plus and OnePlus 5.

As for the rest of the phone, VentureBeat claims the Nokia 8 will sport a 5.3-inch 2560×1440 display, a Snapdragon 835, 4 or 6GB of RAM, and near-stock Android 7.1.1 Nougat. WinFuture says the phone will come in blue, steel (or silver), gold/blue, and gold/copper. A Scandinavian retailer accidentally listed the device and said it costs €589 which translates to $675, so it definitely will be priced up there with other flagships like the iPhone and Google Pixel. We’ll let you know if we learn anything further.
