As Nokia plans to unveil its next flagship, Nokia 8, officially at the HMD global event on 16 August, photos of the phone’s benchmarks have surfaced online.
The images first spotted by Slashleaks, show the phone with the benchmark specifications displayed on the screen. The phone had a model number TA -1012 which is line with the earlier leaked model number of the Nokia 8.
The benchmarks show the 8 will be running on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. It will be powered by the Snapdragon 835 chipset along with 4 GB of RAM and an Adreno 540 GPU. The display will be QuadHD with 559 pixel density. The size of the display is not confirmed but it is speculated to be between 5.2 to 5.3 inches. The photo confirms he fact that the Nokia 8 will be having capacitive navigation buttons along with a home button where presumably the fingerprint sensor has been embedded.
Dual Camera Setup
The talking point about this phone will be the dual-camera setup that has been speculated to come with the Nokia 8 making it the first Nokia handset to get that feature. Reputed tipster Evan Blass had earlier in July tweeted a photo of the Nokia 8 camera module, captioned with a hashtag ‘teaser’. The photo did indeed show a dual-tone LED flash and a laser-based autofocusing system housed alongside the two cameras.
Several other leaks have pointed out to the fact that HMD Global is to bring Carl Zeiss cameras optics with the Nokia 8 smartphone. The speculated price for the smartphone is around Rs 45,000.
