Ahead of its London announcement on August 16, 2017, the upcoming Nokia 8 has purportedly been seen ‘in the flesh’ thanks to some leaked photos from Slashleaks user “ leakspinner”.
These are the first real-world photos we’ve seen of the handset, as we've previously only seen leaked renders of the device. We’ve so far glimpsed the phone in a blue finish, but given that a retailer has listed the phone as also available in “gold/copper”, the newly leaked images are likely of that handset.
Interestingly, the “Zeiss” branding that was seen in the aforementioned renders is absent in the newly-leaked photos.
We reported earlier on Nokia’s partnership with Zeiss (or more accurately, Zeiss and HMD Global — the Finnish company currently licensing Nokia) although there's still nothing to definitively confirm that the Nokia 8 will be the phone that reaps the rewards of this partnership.
