The first high-end Nokia phone is due from Finnish manufacturer HMD Global this month — and the so-called Nokia 8 might come in a flashy copper colour.

Images leaked to a Baidu forum reportedly show the upcoming flagship in a shiny metal casing.

We first saw the copper Nokia 8 at The Verge.

The design shown in this latest leak is similar to images posted by serial leaker Evan Blass last week. Blass’ leaked images showed a dual-camera setup with optics by Carl Zeiss, and a midnight-blue phone.

Those snapshots also showed the Nokis 8’s curved back, a headphone jack, and what seems to be USB-C at the bottom.

The front layout uses capacitive keys, with a back and multitasking button on the left and right respectively, plus a home button — which apparently doubles as a fingerprint reader — sitting between the two.

Other rumoured specs mention a 5.3″ QuadHD display, Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 SoC, either 4 or 6GB of RAM, the latest version of Google’s Android operating system. The phone is rumoured to be launching on July 31.
