In order to take on the big smartphone giants, Nokia 8 has been launched by the Nokia as its flagship Android phone.
This smartphone is expected to take on the likes of iPhone 7 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S8 (and the upcoming iPhone 8 and Galaxy Note 8).
Some of the key features to be taken into consideration are the 13-megapixel dual rear sensors as well as the 13-megapixel front camera of the Nokia phone both support the (unfortunately named) “bothie” functionality.
Talking about the availability of the phone, Nokia 8 will be available “globally” in early September, priced at equivalent of EUR 599 (approximately Rs. 45,000). The Nokia 8 price in India will be known closer to launch.
The unibody Nokia 8 is built out of 6000-series aluminium and it will be available in glossy Polished Copper and Polished Blue colours, as well as matte Tempered Blue and Steel finishes. The Nokia 8 is IP54 rated, which means it is splash-proof.
The Nokia 8 comes with dual 13-megapixel f/2.0 RGB and monochrome sensors at the back, and while that setup has been seen on several other phones, HMD is betting big on “bothies” – the ability to capture images and videos from front and rear cameras at the same time.
As for other key Nokia 8 specifications, there’s the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC (four 2.45GHz Kyro cores and four 1.8GHz Kyro cores), which powers nearly all other Android flagships of this generation.
There is just one variant – with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, though the phone will release in single SIM and hybrid dual SIM options, depending upon the markets. It comes with support for microSD cards of up to 256GB capacity and a 3090mAh battery.
