Apart from the unique new feature, the phone contains similar properties like other phones such as a strong chipset, sharp display, dual cameras and other similar features, reported Business Insider. While the 5.3 inch ultra HD resolution display puts it on the verge of phablet territory - and squarely within the current smartphone screen size sweet spot.
According to new details the Nokia 8 will have an RRP of around €520.
The latest smartphone to bear the Nokia brand is banking on advanced imaging features and a polished exterior to help it crack the crowded Android market. The Nokia 8 release date is set for September 6 in select markets, and it will sell for 599 Euros or around $700 in the United States. Nonetheless, the reason we are talking about HMD Global today is because it finally unveiled a smartphone that's worthy of carrying the flagship title.
New Nokia 8 phone marks surging demand for video-streaming:- HMD Global, the Finnish start-up hoping to revitalize the Nokia telephone mark, revealed the Nokia 8 on August 16, planning to capitalize on rising customer interest for brilliant sound and video highlights.
While the design is impeccable, what Nokia is really pushing however is a particular feature within the camera which allows you to use both the front-facing and rear-facing cameras at the same time creating what the company calls a "bothie" (instead of a selfie). There's also a new, ugh, "bothie" mode, that will activate both the front and rear cameras to capture phones and videos. The Nokia 8 takes a different tack and shows that the company looks to compete in the high-end arena too.
In addition to a f/2.0 aperture, the Nokia 8 provides support for dual-tone flash and PDAF. The document contains a table showing the pricing of several devices, including the Nokia 8, which is listed at €517.42; bearing in mind that this price may fluctuate between European Union member states it could be anything between €515 and €520 across the continent. The cameras can record 4K video and Nokia OZO spatial 360° audio, something that could make for somewhat less-awful recordings of coffee shop acoustic sets.
It's available in four colours (Polished Blue, Tempered Blue, Steel, Polished Copper) and will be on sale in the United Kingdom early September for around €599 or $700.
HMD had chosen to release cheaper models first because 50% of global demand was for phones costing between €100 and €250, Sarvikas said in an interview. At a extravagant release function in London the Nokia-8 has been launched. The storage stands at 64GB with room to expand it, but this microSD card slot is also the same one used as the SIM 2 slot. The audience will be able to see both cameras equally as both feeds split the screen at once.
"People love to share and tell stories". Since Nokia 8 runs the stock Android, it will receive timely security fixes and faster software updates. There's also a 13MP sensor on the front of the phone.
In a briefing note analyst firm CCS Insight said: "Despite an obvious focus on "creators", the most important thing for HMD Global will be getting the Nokia 8 to appeal to the broadest possible audience".
