Nokia just took the wraps off the Nokia 8 flagship, the one we’ve all been waiting months to hear about!
Let’s dive right into it and look at the key specs:
5.3in IPS LCD Display – QHD Resolution, 700nits Brightness, Gorilla Glass 5 (2.5D Glass)
6000 Series Milled Aluminium Body – IP54 Certified, 7.9mm Thickness
Carl Zeiss Dual-Camera (Primary, Rear-Facing) – 13MP (Colour & Monochrome), f/2.0 Aperture, 1.12µm Pixels, Laser Autofocus, Dual-LED Flash, OIS (Colour Sensor)
Secondary/Front Camera – 13MP, f/2.0 Aperture, 1.12µm Pixels, Phase Detection Autofocus
Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC
64GB Onboard Storage
MicroSD Card Support
Android 7.1 Nougat
Design-wise it’s looking about as gorgeous as we expected from Nokia iphone glass replacement (not to mention the leaks we’d seen already) with some great metallic colour choices, and curved glass edging meeting the metallic rear panel.
Some other interesting bits of info include the way in which Nokia’s camera team – OZO – has developed a “Dual-Sight” feature which allows users to livestream to Facebook and Youtube from both front and rear cameras. This also incorporates 360° spatial surround binaural audio recording, which Nokia claims will capture sound to a quality level intended to match the 4K video recording.
HMD has also partnered with Google to make Google Photos the default gallery application with unlimited cloud photo storage.
The Nokia 8 has been given an RRP of €600 and will be available globally from September. It will ship with Android Nougat initially, but should get Android O after it is officially announced by Google. HMD is yet to reveal the update schedule, understandably.
