Finnish company HMD Global launched its much-awaited flagship device Nokia 8. The phone is expected to be available in India during the festival season. The phone is slated to be available in four colors — polished blue, polished copper, tempered blue and steel. Nokia 8 is currently priced at 599 euros ($705) with prices for the Indian market expected to be released soon.
The device boasts three industry-first features for Android smartphones, including a collaboration with ZEISS optics, Nokia ‘OZO Audio’ and ‘Dual-Sight’ mode. Nokia 8 enables its users live stream videos on social feeds such as Facebook and YouTube using its Dual-Sight feature that uses both the front and rear cameras simultaneously in a split screen visual for both photos and videos. The front and rear-facing cameras on the Nokia 8 have been co-developed with ZEISS optics for ‘bothie’. Users also get unlimited photo and video uploads to Google Photos.
Nokia 8 is also the first smartphone to feature Nokia’s OZO Audio. OZO spatial 360 degrees audio brings an immersive experience to 4K video. The phone features Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip, offers pure, secure and updated Android experience and is Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 compatible for 3,090 mAh battery. The device comes with a lightweight, water, sweat, and dust-proof premium Nokia ‘Active Wireless Headset’.
Nokia 8 comes with a 4GB RAM and 64GB storage that can be extended up to 256GB. It has a 5.3-inch IPS LCD QHD display and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
