Finnish startup HMD Global resurrected the Nokia name with a new line of Android smartphones unveiled back in February. Undaunted by lack of carrier deals, they've kept expanding it throughout the year, including releasing the Nokia 6 in the US back in June. But a few leaks have revealed images of and specs for the next smartphone in the series, the powered-up Nokia 8, which looks to be HMD's first stab at a higher-end smartphone. And yes, it will reportedly come with Zeiss optics.

The Nokia 8 first appeared by accident when a company photographer erroneously uploaded a short video containing it and another as-yet unannounced smartphone (possibly the Nokia 9). The fine print on the phone render above marks its model as HMD TA-1012, which has corresponding benchmarks. Reportedly, the phone will be powered by a Snapdragon 835 processor and sport dual rear-facing cameras.

German site WinFuture referred to the Nokia 8 with a different model number, TA-1004, but otherwise confirmed those details. Sources told them the phone would retail for just under 600 euros, and noted it would likely be available to purchase on July 31st.
