HMD Global has finally launched the Nokia 8. The Nokia 8 highlighted features are its 13-megapixel dual rear sensors and the 13-megapixel front camera with “bothie” functionality. It measures just 4.6mm thick at the edges, and 7.9mm thick at the height of its camera module.
The unibody Nokia 8 is built out of 6000-series aluminium and it is IP54 rated, which means it is splash-proof.
Nokia 8 features 5.3-inch 2K LCD display with Gorilla Glass 5 protection. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor (four 2.45GHz Kyro cores and four 1.8GHz Kyro cores) with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage which is expandable via microSD cards up to 256GB. The smartphone will run on Android 7.1.1 out of the box.
The Nokia 8 comes with dual 13-megapixel f/2.0 RGB and monochrome sensors at the back with “bothies” that capture images and videos from the front and rear cameras at the same time as well as fuse them into a single picture. Bothies function will also stream full-HD live videos to Facebook and YouTube. The Nokia 8 rear camera comes with laser autofocus and dual-tone LED flash.
The smartphone front camera is also a 13-megapixel RGB sensor. Both front and rear cameras are capable of recording 4K video.
The Nokia 8 is fueled by a 3090mAh battery. It features USB 3.1 Type-C connectivity as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack.
It will be available in glossy Polished Copper and Polished Blue colours, as well as matte Tempered Blue and Steel finish. The Nokia 8 will be available “globally” in early September, priced at EUR 599.
