Talking about the design, the Unibody Nokia 8 has everything that a premium handset should have. The 6000 Series aluminum, with matte and glossy finish, adds to its beauty. The thickness of 7.90 millimeters seems a bit small, especially if a 3090 mAh battery is taken into consideration. The curved edges make it feel thinner. You will not have any problem in daily use.
The most important feature of the smartphone is its camera. HMD Global Company is exaggerating about the ‘bothie’ feature of this phone in the market. Actually, with the help of this, you will be able to capture pictures and videos simultaneously from both cameras. You will also be able to live stream videos made in both modes on apps like Facebook and YouTube. We also tested this feature and we have no complaints.
HMD has leveraged its partnership with Nokia to make the company’s 360 VR camera technology part of the Nokia 8. This smartphone comes with a high dynamic range microphone. With its help, the phone can record surround sound with the help of Nokio OZO audio algorithm. HMD says that if users share the video on social media also, with the help of software encoding, the virtual surround sound will remain a part of the video.
A 13-megapixel RGB sensor is provided on the front panel. This sensor is also part of the primary camera. With front and rear cameras, you can record 4K videos. The rear camera comes with laser autofocus and dual-tone LED flash.
Talking about the specification, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor has been used in Nokia 8, which is part of other flagship Android devices of this generation. It comes with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage. You will also be able to use a microSD card up to 256 GB. Dual SIM variants of the phone have been introduced in India. Stay tuned with Gadgets 360 for a detailed review of the handset.
