Nokia 8 leak reveals key details

The launch of the new Nokia 8 phone is just around the corner, with owner of the brand HMD Global having confirmed the big unveiling will take place on August 16th.

But will we be happy to just sit and wait until then to find out exactly what features the handset will have to offer?

No chance, so you can probably understand how happy we were to see an apparent leak of some key information courtesy of Slashleaks.

The image that did the rounds features the phone with its display on the settings page, which meant all the technical specs were easily visible.

So what have we learned from the leaked picture?

Well, visually, it looks like a pretty normal handset, with a small bezel on the top, bottom and side, along with metallic frame on its outer edge.

But it's the early revelations of what's inside the device that has got us most excited.

Thanks to the leak, we now know that the Nokia 8 will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor and come with 4GB of RAM.

The handset is also set to offer around 64GB of storage as standard, although we'd expect that to be expandable due to a microSD slot.

We also know that the Nokia 8 will boast a QHD resolution IPS LCD display with 2560 x 1440 resolution at 559ppi.

While the actual screen size hasn't been given, we have been told the pixels per inch, so we'd estimate the display could be about 5.25 inches wide diagonally.

Exciting stuff, we're sure you'll agree, and that's before many of the rumours still doing the rounds are confirmed.

For instance, some recent leaks have suggested the Nokia 8 will feature a dual rear camera and a fingerprint sensor on the front.

With Apple and Samsung both gearing up for major product launches in the coming months, people in the market for a high-end smartphone look set to have plenty of strong options to choose from.

Can the Nokia 8 prove a tempting alternative to the new iPhone and the latest addition to the Galaxy range? We'll just have to wait and see!
