Earlier this month we saw a mid-range triumvirate of smartphones launched by Nokia. The Nokia 3, 5 and 6 are all destined to arrive in the UK in the next few weeks. However, the middling specs didn't set HEXUS readers' hearts a flutter as there are so many similar devices out there by other brands. A couple of days after that availability news we heard that Nokia had rekindled their old special (exclusive) relationship with Zeiss optics which gave hope for some imaging differentiated higher-end devices coming along in the future.

Now prolific smartphone leaker Evan Blass has shared some images of a purported Nokia 8 smartphone, and he provides a smattering of specs too. Firstly, on Twitter, Blass provided a close-up of the dual lens camera system with Zeiss branding.

In a follow up on the Venture Beat blog, Blass shared a crystal clear product shot of the front and back of the new Nokia 8. This sleek looking device carries the design language seen in the mid-range devices we talked about earlier in the month. Round the back we can see the dual-lens Zeiss camera.

According to various sources the Nokia 8 will be announced on 31st July. It will be based around a 2.5D 5.3-inch QHD screen. Inside you will find it is equipped with a Snapdragon 835 chipset plus either 4GB or 6GB of RAM. That rear camera is said to be a combination of 2x 13MP cameras, probably with different focal lengths.

If you are wondering about the price, some sources indicate a €589 RRP (about $675 or £523) in Europe. The Nokia 8 is expected to come in blue (pictured), steel, gold/blue, or gold/copper.

Looks meh - most likely one of the OTS 1/2.3" 13MP sensors being used.
Shame the finger print/power button is not on the back of the phone. I love my LG G5 as the finger print position is perfect when I take my phone out of my pocket, no fumbling, just immediate screen unlock!
Hmm it does look meh, really wish they took a design cue from HTC

Why would you want the fingerprint reader somewhere you'd have to fumble around to find, and not be able to use when it's sitting on a surface?

Unless you have unusually baggy pockets, the only place you're going going to touch when taking your phone out of your pocket is the edges.
If it's the same price as the OnePlus 5, it might do quite well. If the £523 version is only the same specs (4/64) as the base 5, maybe not…
