Nokia 8’s gold-copper color will be the new black, confirms the latest iPhone 8 leak

One of the many things I  well remember from many interviews Nokia designers and executives gave about the rewarded Fabula design is how they chose the color. Nokia’s design unit did extensive market research in choosing the right tone of the color, and that’s how they chose “Cyan” or “Magenta”, and other colors that we saw with the Lumia range as well.

Maybe the most famous tribute to Nokia’s design came from Apple’s iPhone 5C announcement, where Nokia poked Apple on Twitter with the line “Imitation is the best part of flattery” for Apple’s color choices, and that tweet became one of the most successful marketing tweets in history, with about 40,000 retweets and 11,000 favourites. Later we learned that Nokia planed to introduce a “Jet Black” Lumia 1520 successor way before that color was made popular by Apple, but Microsoft of course cancelled Nokia Goldifnger.

Now, new leaks about the upcoming Apple iPhone 8 reveal that Apple plans to introduce a device in the “(gold-) copper” color, similar to what HMD already offers on the Nokia 5 and 6, and fairly close (not exactly the same tone) to the color of the Nokia 8 we saw on the leaked real-life pictures.

Up until now, everything Apple did in mobile was well received and we could say a success. Considering that, seems HMD did a great job by choosing the (gold) copper as the next “flagship” color. The mentioned Nokia 8 is expected to be announced on 16th August in London.

What do you think? Tell us down below. 🙂

    Nokia better launch that 8 fast! If it goes on sale AFTER the iPhone 8 , the general public will think Nokia copied Apple and that’s going to piss me off. I’ve never liked the rose gold-ish colour, but I think it’ll appeal more to women. Matte Black, Brushed Aluminium, and the new Nokia Blue is what I lean more towards.

    Come on HMD. Launch that sucker fast! The competition isn’t resting.

    • He he, you are right there… But, the most important thing, regardless of iPhone, is to have Nokia 8 ready and in stores few days after… This is the real test. They need to succeed here or it will become hard to get Nokia back where it belong, in the top 5 brand names.

  • What happened to the iPhone 7S? Is Apple changing its naming?

    • They asked a guy what is better, to be stupid or ignorant. He answered Don’t know and don’t care 🙂

    • As I understand, because this year is iPhone’s 10th birthday, they could skip the 7S mark and go straight to 8.

      • So they now managed to do something (a sensible upgrade) in 1 year which has always taken them 2 years? They are surely gonna mess this up 😂

        • Well, I’m not sure, because sometimes some media does mention 7S, but iPhone 8 dominates the news cycle since last year

    • They’re going to have 3 Phones
      iPhone 7s
      iPhone 7s Plus
      iPhone 8/Pro/X (Name not decided yet)

      • iPhone 8 in the market will already kill the iPhone 7S then. Because iPhone 7S will appear as an old generation phone in front of the iPhone 8.

        • As per the leaks I’ve followed, the iPhone 8/X/Pro is going to be over $1,000 dollars making it inline with everything ‘Pro’ series of other Apple Products & the 7s, 7s Plus will be the regular follow-up for iPhone 7/7Plus with more or less similar price to it.
