It has a 5.3inch display, 13-megapixel front and rear cameras, USB3.1, and a 3.5mm headphone jack, among other features. However, the risk seems to payed off since every smartphone that HMD Global launched under the Nokia brand has been successful. We were nearly certain about its final form when we saw some believable images, followed by that copper-colored Nokia 8 and the different variants listed on GFXBench and AnTuTu. The technology for this has been borrowed from Ozo, which is Nokia's take on a 360-degree camera for creating VR content.
The phone is now running under Android 7.1.1 Nougat with the capacity of 4GB of RAM.
The phone will be available in four unique colors: Polished Blue, Tempered Blue, Steel and Polished Copper making it more attractive.
Nokia and HMD Global's unveiling comes a week before Samsung is due to announce their next Note smartphone, the first since the Note 7 was discontinued past year over battery fires and safety fears. At the moment, there are no precise plans to bring the phone to the United States, through HMD Global is interested in doing so. In terms of storage, the phone packs in 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM with microSD support. The Nokia 8 is IP54 rated, which means it is splash-proof. "Both the front and rear of the device features a 13MP sensor with ZEISS optics, with a dual rear camera setup (monochrome sensor) and we're looking at a 5.3" 1440p LCD polarized display protected with Gorilla Glass 5.
Nokia 8 is the first smartphone to come with the 'Bothie' feature. The selfie camera also has an f/2.0 lens and flash.
Nokia is promising a 360 degree fully immersive audio experience with the Nokia 8.
Photo and video quality can't be judged off a specs sheet, but the camera promises 4K video recording and a "bothie" mode that allows you to capture pictures or movies from both the front and rear cameras simultaneously, split-screen style (handy for those live streams, perhaps).
