The Nokia 8 is probably one of the most anticipated smartphones to arrive this year. The company still remains silent about its features. But recent reports from FinancialTribune claim that the device might feature a dual-camera setup that was made by the German manufacturer of optical systems, Carl Zeiss. Nokia is expected to unveil the device on August 16 in London. People will also get the chance to see HMD Global Oy’s latest works on the event. HMD Global is a firm created by the previous executives of Nokia.

Smartphone runs with Android 8.0

According to a report from NokiaPowerUser, the latest GeekBench listing of the Nokia 8 shows that the device will be running with Android 8.0 operating system. But in reality, Google has not yet completed the Android 8.0 OS, and Android Beta users are still testing the operating system. Google is expected to complete it in a few more weeks. Given the timelines, Nokia 8 will most probably launch running with Android 7.1.1 or Android 7.1.2.

The device was listed on GeekBench under the model name “Unknown Heart.” It will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor. Other rumored specifications of the Nokia 8 include 4GB of RAM and rear cameras that might have the capability to capture 4K video.

Nokia 8’s rumored specs

The upcoming Nokia 8 is expected to look like a typical smartphone, with regular-sized bezels. The device might have an aluminum unibody design with a 5.3-inch 2k resolution display. It would come in different colors, namely black, copper, copper-gold, silver and blue. The smartphone could also be water and dust resistant to rival other high-end smartphones that are dominating the market today.

Nokia 6 not a brilliant device?

On the other hand, HMD Global’s Nokia 6 recently arrived in Europe.

The mid-ranged Android smartphone captures the essence of what it means to be a Nokia phone. Its physical design is not that brilliant. The device is not going to win any prizes or nominations for its design, but it works pretty well.

According to Forbes, there is nothing flashy on the Nokia 6. Its software is just like any mid-range Android device. Although the device is not that spectacular, fans can expect that it will be a very durable product because it bears the “Nokia” brand.
