HMD is now bringing back the Zeiss branding on Nokia-branded phones, and it appears the first one will emerge later this month. Venture Beat and WinFuture both report that HMD will launch a Nokia 8 handset on July 31st, with dual-cameras. Both cameras are said to be 13 megapixels and include Carl Zeiss optics.

While this Nokia 8 will include Carl Zeiss optics, it won’t have the same type of camera system that was made by the engineers of Nokia’s PureView. Apple hired Nokia’s Lumia photography expert, and the majority of the talent behind Nokia’s camera work left the company when Microsoft acquired Nokia’s phone business.

In the UK that translates to around £517, so we'll probably see a price tag of around £519.99. Nokia 8 will be priced at EUR 589 (roughly Rs. 43,400). This is still not as expensive as the Apple and Samsung flagships, but does fall comfortably in the premium price bracket. It is also lower than the earlier tipped price of EUR 749 (roughly Rs. 55,300), while the India price was tipped to be at Rs. 44,999. Also, the report claims that the smartphone will be launched this month itself – on July 31.

Venture Beat has supplied a leaked photo of the Nokia 8 in a blue variant, but the phone is also expected to debut in silver and gold versions.

This appears to be HMD’s high-end Nokia-branded device, and will likely ship with a pure version of Android 7.1.1 Nougat. It seems that HMD is sticking with physical keys and larger display bezels for its Nokia-branded flagship device. That could make the Nokia 8 a hard sell against the Samsung Galaxy S8 and other similar Android-powered handsets, but pricing could make up for the design elements.

Lastly, at launch, the Nokia 8 will be available in four colour options - Blue, Steel, Gold/Blue, and Gold/Copper. These colour options might be named a bit more creatively on launch day.

At the back, it will sport a thin vertical camera strip, or a dual camera setup. The smartphone is also tipped to sport an iris scanner, be IP68 water resistant, support dual-SIM slots, and a fingerprint scanner as well.
