Nokia 8, Nokia 9 Blue/Steel

Nokia’s flagship hype is just taking pace as fast as we have reached to see the two of the colors in a complete outfit leaked by a credible source. Motel TA-1012 being bound to Nokia 8 recently (previously referred to Nokia 9) has appeared in Blue and Steel variants.

Recently the reports emerged about Nokia 8 high-end flagship to be launched on July 31 with a set of four colors at least including blue, steel, gold/blue and gold/copper. More importantly the price of the phone was also listed to be €589 (or ~$680) by a Scandinavian retailer.

Sooner after, a glimpse of the “Zeiss” branding appeared with a dual-camera module on a smartphone which later leaked in a full glory of the said Nokia flagship in Blue variant. Now the same leakster has shared another variant/color of the device – Silver (or “Steel” if we consider the four colors rumored before)

Nokia 8 – Emerged Features

Till now, Nokia 8 (or call it whatever you want) has been pictured with a lot of information you might want to know about. The high-end Snapdragon 835 chipset powering up the Nokia flagship running Android 7.1.1 Nougat software. The phone is reported to have 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. 5.3-inch display would be serving with Quad HD resolution on the front while on the back the flagship will be offering a dual-camera configuration allegedly with Zeiss optics.

Nokia 8 Lock Screen Fingerprint

The fingerprint icon on the display at lower left corner has made many curious to know if its an under-display fingerprint scanner (like we’ve heard about Apple planning to put one on its next iPhone devices or like Qualcomm’s ultrasonic fingerprint scanner in Vivo’s prototype.)

Well it’s not the one people might be wondering about. The same lock screen has been seen on Nokia 5’s official renders with a fingerprint icon on the display but Nokia 5 has the fingerprint scanner embedded into home button below the screen. The icon on the screen is merely an indication that you can use the fingerprint scanner to unlock the screen. So you can just expect the similar behavior on the upcoming Nokia flagship.

Even though Qualcomm has told that its new fingerprint solution for glass and metal was about to ship last month for mid-range chipsets. The flagship fingerprint solution for displays will work with future high-end platforms. So you can easily phase out this upcoming Nokia flagship to carry anything like that.
