Details of Nokia 8
Nokia is back to take the throne as the best smartphone maker in the world giving a challenge to Apple and Samsung. This time Nokia has decided to not turn any stones untouched in proving its mettle. The Nokia 8 smartphone is the answer by the company to take it back as the leading player in the smartphone business. It rivals the flagships such as the iPhone 7, Galaxy S8, LG G6, Google Pixel and HTC smartphones. This is a follow up of its launch of Nokia 3310 feature phone launched 6 months back. Some of the main features of the Nokia 8 is it build quality that makes use of the aluminum body, the presence of Carl Zeiss cameras along with spatial audio pulled from Nokia’s high-end 360-degree camera and a stunning display of the high-resolution 5.3-inch screen.
Design and Display
The Nokia 8 smartphone has a 5.3-inch OLED 2K polarized display with Quad HD resolution (2560 x 1440). The display is protected by sculpted Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The phone has a very elegant build with highly polished finish. The Nokia 8 goes through an austere 40-phases of manufacturing, anodizing and glazing to guarantee its special appearance which combines immaculately with a fine aluminum unibody. The device features very big bezels in the top and bottom which is something most smartphones try to avoid these days. As a result, the screen won’t have an aspect ratio of 18:9. There is the capacitive back button on the bottom left side, the recent apps on the right and the home button in the middle. The corners in the rear side also appear to be seamlessly curved and we can see the power button and the volume rockers on the right side of the device. The home button houses the fingerprint sensor.
The Nokia 8 is powered by the latest Snapdragon 835 Octa-Core processor along with 4GB RAM and Adreno GPU. Nokia has also added a full-length copper cooling pipe fused with graphite shield to disperse system heat across the full body of the phone. The operating system that runs the Nokia 8 is the latest Android Nougat 7.1.1. Nokia 8 has an internal storage of 64 GB along with MicroSD card support of up to 256 GB. The device comes with Dual-SIM support. However, the phone does not sport a waterproof body as it is only splash-proof. It is a little disappointing thing considering that most of the flagship phones come with the waterproof body. The device is powered by a 3090mAh non-removable battery. The fingerprint sensor scanner on the device is placed on the front. The phone also has a USB-C port. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, USB OTG, 3G, and 4G.The phone also has the following Sensors- Ambient light sensor, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, E-compass, Gyroscope, Fingerprint Sensor, Hall sensor, and Barometer.
In the photography department, the smartphone sports a primary dual-lens camera that holds a pair of a 13MP image sensor for both the lenses. The one camera oversees capturing colors and the other takes care of black and white for taking a dramatic shot. It can also capture videos in 4 K mode. The Nokia 8 appears to be the first smartphone from HMD Global to feature ZEISS lens. It has a wide aperture of f/2.0 and comes with optical image stabilization and IR range finder. There is also dual flash led lights in the rear. The front shooter is also a 13 with f/2.0 aperture and display flash. There's a 13-megapixel camera on the front, and thanks to some software trickery you can take photos with both the front and back camera to combine them into a single, split-screen image. The Nokia 8 has a special software feature that allows users to take images with activating both the front and rear camera shooter termed as the “bothie”.
Nokia is back in the game again! It used to be world’s biggest mobile phone manufacturer in the world. However, in the last few years, the company lost its mammoth market share with the advent of the rival brands. However, Nokia has upped its game once again with its all-new Nokia 8. It is an Android-based smartphone, which is designed by HMD Global and manufactured by Foxconn Technology which also happens to be the manufacturer of Apple’s iPhone. Nokia 8 is far different from the company’s midrange models – the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 as the Nokia 8 stands out with flagship features and hardware. And from what we see, the device has an interesting feature with ZEISS camera optics.
