Earlier this year, Finnish startup HMD Global released three Android-based Nokia smartphones, signalling a dramatic comeback for the iconic brand.

The Nokia 3, 5 and 6 were targeted at entry and mid-range users. However, Nokia is not resting on its laurels as the company might be gearing up to launch a new model - the Nokia 8.

According to the new product image leaked by tech insider Evan Blass, better known as evleaks, the Nokia 8 will feature a similar design to the previous three models.

However, the image also showed an interesting feature - the Carl Zeiss-branded rear dual camera.

This signals a revival of the partnership between the two brands, which previously worked together for Nokia's previous N series and more recently Lumia devices.

He also noted that according various benchmarking apps, the Nokia 8 might sport a 5.3in QHD screen, with a top-of-the-range Snapdragon 835 chipset, either 4GB or 6GB RAM and dual 13-megapixel rear cameras.

Nokia 8 is expected to run on the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat.

Based on the rumoured specs, the smartphone will most probably be competing in the top-end market, making the already fiercely competitive segment even more interesting moving forward.

According to Blass, the model might be launched globally at the end of the month.
