The talking point about this phone will most likely be the dual-camera setup that has been speculated, making it the first Nokia handset to get the feature.

Reputed tipster Evan Blass had earlier in July tweeted a photo of the Nokia 8 camera module, captioned with a hashtag 'teaser'. The photo did indeed show a dual-tone LED flash and a laser-based autofocusing system housed alongside the two cameras.

Also several other leaks have pointed out to the fact that HMD Global is to bring Carl Zeiss cameras optics with the Nokia 8 smartphone. The speculated price for the smartphone is around Rs 45,000. We shall wait till 16 August to see how many of these rumours indeed turn out to be true.
