HMD Global the parent company of Nokia was previously reported to unveil the alleged Nokia 8 on July 31, but there is still no official news pointing in that direction. Today, images from various angles of the device in copper gold colour have leaked online. A user posted the images in a thread on the Chinese social media website, Baidu.

However, in previous leaks, we have seen the Blue variant of the Nokia 8 sporting the Zeiss logo. These leaked images match with the renders seen in the past.
The Nokia 8 interestingly might be coming with a Micro USB port for charging and data transfer instead of the new standard that the industry is moving towards, the Type-C port. The device will also sport a 3.5mm audio jack. The device in the images was turned on thus showing off the UI which as per the images Nokia is still keeping stock and not changing it.
