Here are all Nokia 8 colors and finishes: which one is your favorite?

The new Nokia 8 is finally official, and it's the first flagship by HMD Global, the company that now owns the rights to the Nokia brand and hopes to bring back the DNA of excellence that the company was known a few years ago.

The Nokia 8 is out there with the best phones: it has the most powerful Android chip - the Snapdragon 835 - and it packs a dual camera system.

But what this new phone takes specific pride in is the craftsmanship, design and finish. It is offered in two different finishes: a glossy, "polished" one and a matte, "tempered" version. Each of these finishes is available in two distinct colors: the glossy ones are blue and copper, while the matte ones are a slightly different shade of blue and a gray, "steel" model.

The process of making is this new Nokia 8 is exciting in its own right: it is a 40-stage process of machining, anodizing and polishing the handset, and the entire procedure takes a whopping 20 hours.

And on the side and below you can see the result: all the beautiful colors and finishes on the Nokia 8:

I always loved the color of my Nokia N8; Lime green (aluminium body). To bad the OEM's arent as daring with color options anymore.

I don't like any of these colours because they are not on the front too, just the back. I don't spend much time looking at the back of my phone, the front is more important and that's where I like to see a bit of colour, anything but black.

We knew that. But Cyberchum is right. Diagonal rear stripes would look great (although I'd go with two repeating colors - the shiny ones or the 'tempered' ones).
