At the back, the phone has a vertical dual rear camera setup with Zeiss optics and LED flash. It also sports 3.5mm audio jack on the top.
The Nokia 8’s rumored specs said to have a 5.3-inch QHD (2560×1440) Super AMOLED 2.5D curved glass display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 (64-bit) Octa-Core chipset, 4GB or 6GB of RAM, dual 13MP rear cameras, 12MP front camera and will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box.
