Nokia 8 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, Adreno 540 GPU and 4 GB of RAM.
Nokia and HMD Global announced the return of the brand to the mobile phone market at Mobile World Congress 2017 with two new smartphones, the Nokia 5 and the Nokia 3.
Taking advantage of the Nokia 8's unbelievable cameras is another new feature named Dual-Sight, which uses the front and rear cameras to capture a so-called bothie.
The big difference in this Nokia phone to prior generations is that it now runs a pure Android OS. Primary camera features 13 MP dual image-fusion with both color and monochrome shooting capabilities while the secondary camera boasts 13 MP with wide-angle, phase detection autofocus.
It is only the rear camera that has optical image stabilizing feature, the second camera at the rear is a black and white camera which will be used to pick out more detail and capture more light to create the digital image. Nokia 8 is also capable of recording 4K videos while using OZO.
The Nokia 8 is set to be available in stores globaballymby September and will retail for an average price of €599 (R10 196). The exterior is built from a single block of metal and the premium models of the phone have a "high gloss mirror finish" that apparently takes 20 hours to complete.
So what is Nokia headlining as a particular strength or USP of the Nokia 8 - to stand out among the smartphone crowd?
To round off the design and external appearance aspects, the rear panel of the Nokia 8 houses the dual camera setup with the sensors placed in the vertical position and in the front, you have the physical home button with the fingerprint sensor integrated beneath it. The internal storage of the phone can be expanded up to 256GB via microSD card. Like many other high-end phones, HMD Global went for a USB Type-C port for charging and PC connectivity purposes, but the company kept the 3.5mm audio jack.
"People love to share and tell stories". The company also said the Nokia 8 will receive monthly security updates.
One feature, which is rare among most Android handset manufacturers these days, is how the operating system is implemented.
