Nokia's smartphones, now licensed for production by HMD Global, currently consists of three devices - the Nokia 3, 5 and 6. Each of the phones is designed for the entry-level/mid-range tier, which begs the question of when a flagship device will be revealed. That very device could be the Nokia 8, which has been rumoured for debut for the past few months, but has yet to make an official appearance. 

Now a leaked image has surfaced via Venture Beat showing the device up front and from the rear. In terms of design it sticks with the aesthetic we've seen from Nokia's new batch of phones, with one of the more curious elements being the dual-lens camera setup. More specifically it features Zeiss branding, a lens specialist that featured heavily in Nokia's Windows Phone days. 

While the full details of the Zeiss lens remains unknown, WinFuture's sources say it is a pair of 13 MP offerings. With several flagship phone makers going the dual-lens route of late, Nokia following suite makes perfect sense. 

As for the rest of the device, a 5.3" display (2560x1440) is being touted, with a Snapdragon 835 chipset internally and a choice of 4 GB or 6 GB RAM depending on the model. There's also said to be 64 GB of onboard storage with a microSD slot for extra space and dual SIM options for certain regions.

HMD Global is yet to comment on the device's status, but with IFA 2017 happening at the beginning of September, an announcement is potentially in the offing.
