Alleged leaked press renders of the unannounced Nokia 8 flagship are doing rounds of the web, And this time, the leak comes from none other than credible smartphone tipster Evan Blass, who has apparently shared what appears to be official press renders of the upcoming Android flagship from Nokia.
Going by the leaked renders, the Nokia 8 is expected to pack a 5.3-inch QHD display with a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels. Under the hood, the device runs the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. The device will have two variants – one with 4GB of RAM while the other is said to come with 6GB of RAM.

Also, the leaked renders reveal that the Nokia 8 will feature a dual-camera system with Carl Zeiss optics. HMG Global – the Finnish manufacturer who has rights to sell Nokia-branded handsets, tied up German optics Carl Zeiss, a rather familiar branding found on Nokia phones of the yesteryears.
Coming back to the Nokia 8, the handset is said to run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box. While a German-based tech blog WinFuture suggests that the Nokia 8 will launch in four color options – Blue, Steel, Gold, Blue, and Gold Copper.
As far as pricing goes, a Scandinavian retailer recently listed the Nokia 8 on their website carrying a price tag of 589 Euros ($675 approx.) The flagship smartphone was said to be officially unveiled in late February, but HMD Global released the mid-range Nokia 6 instead. The Finnish company is yet to announce a top-of-the-line flagship device since it started manufacturing Android smartphones under the Nokia name for which it has exclusive rights. And now, multiple sources suggest that the upcoming Android flagship with the Nokia-branding could launch on July 31.
The rumor mill suggests the upcoming Android flagship smartphone could be called the Nokia 8 or Nokia 9. In the past, multiple prototypes of the purported Nokia 8 or Nokia 9 flagship have shown up on Geekbench listings. Last month, a prototype of the handset with the model number TA-1012 showed up on Geekbench giving us an idea about its specs.
