“Gold-copper” Nokia 8 version allegedly leaked from production line


The Nokia 8 leak storm intensifies, which makes us believe that the handset will indeed be unveiled by the end of the month. The latest scoop allegedly comes straight from the production line, and if it's true, it means that the Nokia flagship is already being manufactured.

The leaked photos are of a new “gold-copper” color, which has not made it to an officially sold smartphone just yet. But this is not the only difference between the device and the renders Evan Blass leaked a few days ago.

The handset doesn't sport the Zeiss logo under its rear cameras, and its home button appears to be significantly larger than what we saw earlier. Additionally, the phone lacks the text at the bottom that signifies who manufactured it.

Of course, this could be a prototype unit or one that has a few more stops down the production line before it's ready. Alternatively, it could also be a fake rip-off. Either way, we couldn't help but stop and look at it, as the finish is quite stunning. Judging by the photos, though, it's pretty easy to scratch, so if it's the real deal, its users should handle it with extreme care.

Not a fan of "fingerprint" shiny finishes - but that is a gorgeous color, almost nostalgic somehow.

I've always anticipated HTC, Nokia, Motorola and Sony flagships. Had a Note II which permanently threw me off Samsung, had an iPhone 4s which threw me off Apple. I used to love BB til they stopped making good phones. I want something new from Nokia, something that's going to make heads turn. HTC's got it's BoomSound and flashy back and squeezy sides. Moto has it's cool Mods. Sony has insane slow-mo and 4k HDR. Samsung and LG have their displays. What's Nokia bringing to the table? I want a FM Transmitter and really really bassy speakers. But what are they going to deliver?

Traditionally? A vastly superior Zeiss-optics camera.

Exactly. Nailed it. Other things they bring to the table are build quality, great battery life, reliability, and great call/signal quality.

Nokia Why are the top & Bottom bezels so big, even the Samsung s6 has smaller bezels.

Not a fan of the color, but definitely a fan of the phone itself. Waiting for you to release the beast, Nokia.

That is a fingerprint magnet for sure. And that color is awful.

The gloss is horrible. The Copper 6 looks great

I can tolerate the color more than the gloss. I can't stand fingerprint magnets. And those bezels are still huge.

That better be a USB C port

I'm waiting to see some phones with a metallic flake in their finish...
