Here’s a Look at Nokia’s Elegant iPhone Killer

  • 18/07/2017

Nokia's iPhone killer has been leaked in all its glory. So far, all the Nokia phones that launched in February looked distinctly like something Nokia would do, but they happened to be all mid-range devices. That indicated Nokia was still reserving its best for the last. And now the time has come. 

The design of the phone is classic Nokia - minimalist and simple. The display seems to taper around the edges giving a bezel-less look, but the phone does have distinct top and bottom bezels with capacitive navigation keys flanking the home button ( with the fingerprint sensor embedded in it) on both sides. The Nokia moniker is visible in the top right corner. The shine on the renders indicates it will be using the same aluminium unibody chassis like the mid-range Nokia 6. Blass tweeted that the phone will be available in gold/blue, gold/copper, blue and steel colour variants. 

On the back, is the vertical dual camera setup. The optics are provided by Nokia's old ally - Zeiss. It's not confirmed what dual camera approach Nokia will take with the Nokia 8. 

Considering that the Nokia 8 will compete with other flagship devices , the hardware powering the phone is expected to be top class. It is likely we will be seeing a 5.3-inch quadHD display, Qualcomm's latest flagship processor, either 4 or 6GB of RAM, and dual 13-megapixel Zeiss cameras. 

The Nokia 8 will take on the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy Note 8 and the iPhone 8. It suddenly seems like 2017 is going to be all about the best 8!
