In terms of design, the unibody Nokia 8 has everything a premium handset should have. The 6000 series aluminum with a matte and glossy finish adds to its aesthetics. The thickness of 7.90mm seems a bit low, especially considering the 3090mAh battery. The curved edges give it a more slim feel. You will not face 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 with both the cameras. You’ll also be able to live stream videos made in Bothie mode to apps like Facebook and YouTube. We also tested this feature and we have no complaints.
HMD has leveraged its partnership with Nokia to integrate the company’s 360 VR camera technology into the Nokia 8. This smartphone comes with high dynamic range microphone. With its help, the phone can record surround sound with the help of Nokia OZO audio algorithm. HMD says that even if users share the video on social media, virtual surround sound will remain part of the video with the help of software coding.
A 13-megapixel RGB sensor has been given on the front panel. This sensor is also part of the primary camera. You can record 4K videos with the front and rear cameras. The rear camera comes with laser autofocus and dual-tone LED flash.
Talking about the specification, 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 variant of the phone has been introduced in India. Stay tuned to Gadgets 360 for a detailed review of the handset.
