Images leaked on a Chinese website show the upcoming Nokia 8 in all its glory replete with a dual-camera layout and flagship specifications.

News about HMD's upcoming flagship smartphone, the Nokia 8, has been doing the rounds for quite some time now with a likely launch date at the end of this month. Now, new real-world pics of the phone have leaked on the Chinese website, VTech showing the handset in a gold/copper finish. The website also notes that the handset could be available in several other colors. 

The leak reveals that the handset will sport a 5.3-inch display with a 1080x2048 resolution and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC paired with 4GB RAM and 64 GB storage. The phone sports a 13MP dual-camera layout featuring Zeiss optics. VTech suggests that the pricing of the device could hover around the $500 mark making for a compelling purchase option.

HMD is leveraging on the brand loyalty of erstwhile Nokia and is manufacturing phones across the budget spectrum. The Nokia 8 would be the first flagship-class device under the Nokia brand post Microsoft's buy out of Nokia's Devices and Services division in late 2013. The Nokia 8 could perfectly complement the low-end Nokia 3 and the mid-range Nokia 6 to offer a compelling alternative for smartphone buyers in the midst of a bevy of smartphone choices.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
