Now that the new videos of Nokia 8 have been leaked, the device seems to be ready to launch at MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2017.

After releasing Nokia 6, a midrange smartphone, the company is expected to soon announce Nokia 8 flagship Android smartphone at next month’s MWC 2017 event. Apparently, the Nokia 8 was showcased by Qualcomm at its booth at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2017 last week.

The Nokia 8 flagship was not announced at CES 2017. The U.S. based chip maker is said to have prevented people from snapping pictures of Nokia 8. However, a leaked video featuring the Nokia has surfaced from CES 2017. Moreover, fresh photos of what seems to be a real Nokia 8 smartphone have surfaced.

Nokia N8 is said to be codenamed as Nokia Supreme. It is expected to come in two variants that will be respectively powered by Snapdragon 835 and Snapdragon 821. Both the variants were seen sitting beside each other at CES 2017.

A new video has surfaced from CES 2017 that shows camera comparison between Nokia 8 powered by Snapdragon 835 and its other variant running on Snapdragon 821.

The Nokia 8 with SD 835 is said to be flanked with features like 6 GB of RAM, OIS and EIS 3.0 enabled 24-megapixel camera. These features indicate that this Nokia 8 will be able to shoot the smoothest video on a smartphone to date.  Its SD 821 model is speculated to have 4 GB of RAM and a lesser but unknown camera.

Other rumored features of Nokia 8 models are 5.7-inch quad HD display, Android 7.0 Nougat OS, fingerprint sensor and LED notification lights.

The following video shows newer images of Nokia 8. Unlike the Nokia 8 models showcased at CES 2017, these fresh photos show its prototype in a plastic build.
