2017 is an impressive year, especially for Nokia. The comeback of Nokia begun in February and continued the trend since then. Out of the four flagships, Nokia released this year (Nokia 3, 5, 6 and 8), Nokia 8 was the best handset launched. It holds the features that make it competitive with the best smartphones available in the market right now.
Here in this article, we have covered all major specifications and features of Nokia 8. As already specified Nokia 8 is a flagship handset of HMD Global that is embedded with major features and specifications. Despite the top-notch features, it is given a lower price tag compared to its rivals like Samsung, Apple, LG, and HTC.
Design & Display
Nokia 8 holds the best design ever in Nokia branding with metal uni-body, 5.3 Inch QHD display, 2560x1440 screen resolution and is available in four different colors. It even has a thinner body at 7.9mm with curved edges and weighs 160g. Visible plastic antenna bands ensure better signal while holding the phone.
Beneath the screen, there is a fingerprint scanner placed between two navigation buttons. Though Nokia 8 is not a waterproof handset, it is IP54 certified which specifies that it can withstand normal waterfall and dust. It features impressive display brightness and is given Gorilla glass 5 for screen protection.
Hardware & Software
HMD global continued to hold the legacy of Nokia device construction. Nokia 8 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset and is paired with a 4GB of RAM. The gadget runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat and is supported by a 3090 mAh battery.
The gadget can withstand even heavy usage. Quick charge 3.0 is enabled, to ensure fast charging. It comes up with Hybrid dual SIM card slot with 64 GB storage and is expandable up to 256GB with micro SD card.
This feature can make a lot of difference in the modern smartphone. We tend to set some expectation especially in case of top brands like Nokia. Nokia 8 features the 13MP dual rear camera. One for color sensor and the other is a Monochrome. Dual tone flash is embedded with f/2.0 aperture. Switching between two cameras is made easy with the camera app. Front shooter also holds 13MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture.
“Bothie” mode is another new feature of Nokia 8. While clicking the photo, the user can even capture their own reactions. So without any extra effort, the user can be a part of the picture with others. Nokia 8 also features Livestream through which you can directly connect to social media account and start streaming.
However, Nokia should improve the picture quality clicked in the low-light environment. Overall, it definitely needs few improvements to reach the expectations of end users.
Connectivity Options and other features
Like all smartphones, Nokia 8 also features the same connectivity features as in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, and NFC. There is a separate headphone jack and the user can use basic earphones wrapped up in the box.
Nokia 8 price in Dubai UAE is AED 2429.
