It is not uncommon for observers in the smartphone business to spot upcoming phone models on benchmark websites. On many occasions, the real name or model is not mentioned on the test sheets. The companies assign codes to the devices submitted for testing.

Working on a similar set of details, it has since been found that the specification of a phone on one of the GeekBench and other such sites could be the Nokia 8. It has to be noted that the company has already sent out the invites for the launch of the phone on August 16.

Piecing the information together, the following can be projected to be the specifications of the Nokia 8 smartphone.

Though the name Nokia 9 appears on the sheets against codes TA-1004, TA-1012, TA-1052, several reports are sure the specifications are of Nokia 8.

The display on the phone is likely to be 5.3 inches in size and the screen resolution substantial at 1440x2560p. It would be a QHD type display.

The OS would be the Android Nougat Version 7.1.1 and the CPU, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC. Unlike the earlier reports which suggested that the phone could come with 6 or 8GB RAM, the latest leads indicate it would be only 4GB RAM.

The built-in storage is being projected as 64GB. The images leaked also indicate that the Nokia 8 will come with a dual camera setup in the rear and both the sensors are expected to be identical 13MP ones. The battery is likely to be 4000mAh.

With regard to the pricing it will be known only when the official launch happens on the 16th. However, it is likely that in the Indian market the Nokia 8 may be sold for around Rs 45, 000 a little lower than the prices internationally which is being indicated as around $700.

It will be another two weeks before all facts will be in public domain.
