HMD's next Nokia device is thought to be a high-end flagship smartphone, and now we know what it looks like.

Actual images have popped up on Baidu forums, with the poster claiming they're images of a Nokia 8 prototype. Immediately, we can tell it looks like a phablet, and that the back is super glossy and gold. We can also see Nokia branding in the center and the rear-facing camera array, which seems to be a dual-lens set up. We don't see any Zeiss branding, but remember, this is just a prototype.

HMD and Zeiss recently struck a partnership that includes Nokia phones adding ZEISS lenses. Anyway, other features that are easy to spot from the images are a 3.5mm headphone jack on the top of the device, and a USB-C port, speaker grill, and microphone port on the bottom. And it appears that Android is running on the phone. Other than that, there's not much more we can glean.
