    Looks meh - most likely one of the OTS 1/2.3" 13MP sensors being used.

    Shame the finger print/power button is not on the back of the phone. I love my LG G5 as the finger print position is perfect when I take my phone out of my pocket, no fumbling, just immediate screen unlock!

    Why would you want the fingerprint reader somewhere you'd have to fumble around to find, and not be able to use when it's sitting on a surface?

    Unless you have unusually baggy pockets, the only place you're going going to touch when taking your phone out of your pocket is the edges.

    Re: Nokia 8 true flagship with dual Zeiss rear camera leaked

    If it's the same price as the OnePlus 5, it might do quite well. If the £523 version is only the same specs (4/64) as the base 5, maybe not...

    I don't use my phone flat on a surface, I pick it up because it's a phone not a desk screen. In addition, LG have done a neat rise and dip for where the button is so unless you don't have any nerve endings in your finger tips its actually a natural find due to its position covered into my reply to your next point

    I don't have unusually baggy pockets, I have normal pockets. But facetious-ism aside when I take my phone out of my pocket i have my thumb on the left side of my phone and grip with the middle-little fingers and place my index finger on the back of the phone to brace it as it comes out. I always place my phone facing inwards and pointing down to my leg for two reasons; A) when I take it out it's up the right way and facing me and B) I used to be an Airsoft Marshal so damage to the back of the phone is less cared about than damage to the front.

    Because I brace the back of my phone with my index finger, as I take my phone out my pocket it's in a perfect position to fall perfectly on the fingerprint scanner and unlock my phone.

    So that's how I use my phone. I don't understand why people put their phones in their back pockets, it's a recipe for many disasters and I can't logically think why you would put your phone in your pocket any way other than what I've just described.

    <joke>Maybe it's you that's weird, not me</joke>

    Re: Nokia 8 true flagship with dual Zeiss rear camera leaked

    When I first saw this I was like isn't that the nokia 5, looked closer and saw the double lens but then went and looked for some nokia 5 images and it's basically a photoshop of the nokia 5 with dual lens (really easy to see they're photoshopped) and different wallpaper applied. You can find the original nokia 5 image shown at http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_5-pictures-8571.php

    Now I'm not saying it isn't what it will look like or anything of the sort but honestly that is a photoshop imo.

    Are the specs realistic, yes but I wouldn't say it will look like this. Also that price seems a tad high to make any real impact into the market.

    Re: Nokia 8 true flagship with dual Zeiss rear camera leaked

    Just seen the techradar article about this, one set of prices says £510, another says £360. The former would put it in competition with the 6gb/128gb OnePlus 5, the latter with the Honor 9.

    If it was £360, I'd be tempted...
