Nokia 8 Camera App Interface Leak Suggests a Secondary Monochrome Sensor

One of the most anticipated smartphones of this year is Nokia’s high-end mobile. It’s partially confirmed that the first flagship smartphone from Nokia will launch on August 16.

And now, the camera application interface of the Nokia 8 has surfaced online, which reveals some of the camera modes of the device. The Nokia 8 will have a secondary monochrome sensor to capture detailed black and white shots. Further, the leak also shows that Nokia will add a pro camera mode as well on the phone, which is an expected thing.

The Nokia 8 may also feature a Portrait mode to capture images with insane depth of field. HMD Global is expected to launch the Nokia 8 on August 16, along with a smaller Nokia 2. However, the company is yet to reveal what they’re going to launch at the scheduled event.

Coming to the Nokia 8, it will be the brand’s first dual camera smartphone, powered by Zeiss lens. For the unaware, HMD and Zeiss recently struck a partnership to change the mobile photography.


As of now, the Nokia 8 is claimed to feature a 5.3-inch QHD display, and it’s not an edge-to-edge display like the LG G6 or Samsung Galaxy S8. The display is claimed to be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 technology.

The Nokia 8 will feature high-end hardware in the form of Snapdragon 835 SoC, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage. There might a 6GB RAM version as well, slated to launch at a later date. In terms of camera, the smartphone may feature two 12MP sensors at the back and an 8MP sensor at the front.

Recently, a Geekbench listing revealed a Nokia 8 with Android O. There’s a huge chance that the Nokia 8 will become the first non-Google smartphone to run Android O because Google is rumoured to roll out to its Pixel and Nexus smartphone next week. The phone is expected to cost Rs. 44,999 in India.
