Nokia ready to release the flagship phone on 16th August

The Nokia 8 is expected to be the company's flagship smartphone.

We reported about Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 global variants receiving Android August Security updates. The only difference in the visual design factor is going to be the dual rear camera setup with the branding of Carl Zeiss optics. This was also the case last month, when the Nokia 6 actually beat the Pixel and Google's security bulletins to the punch for the July 2017 patch. The photos, originated from Chinese social media app WeChat, showed the model number TA-1012, which was one of the three model numbers - TA-1004, TA-1012, and TA-1052 - listed in a previous AnTuTu benchmark leak.

As you can see, the handset looks fairly typical of a modern flagship, with rounded corners and a Home button on the front - touting a fingerprint scanner inside too. For a start, it's rumoured that there'll be a 6000-series aluminium body, which will be available in a number of colours, rumoured to include blue, grey, and gold.

On the front, you will see backlit capacitive buttons with a home button. Nokia 8 will house a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC which is the flagship processor of this year.

In 2017, most flagship phones tend to launch somewhere between £599 and £699, although Chinese phone makers are regularly undercutting these price points.

What we do know is that we're expecting the phone to be a flagship-grade device, which means it will probably be expensive - the most expensive Nokia handset produced by HMD, at the very least. That works out at around £465 in the UK and $605 in the USA, which is a bit cheaper than what we'd expect.
