HMD Global, the name behind Nokia‘s latest smartphones – the Nokia 6, 5, and 3 – has finally taken the wraps off its true flagship model, Nokia 8.
Nokia 8 has been in the rumor mill for months. The official specifications mentioned on the website now confirm that the device has a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, and a 5.3-inch 2560 x 1440 Gorilla Glass 5 display. The design isn’t much different from that of Nokia 6 and as for the edge-to-edge display or smaller bezels, the Nokia 8 is a disappointment.
The device features 13MP dual back cameras, as well as a 13MP phase detection auto-focus front camera, equipped with f/2.0 optics from ZEISS.
Nokia is also heavily advertising the phone’s new functionality named “bothie”, which allows you to capture photos/video from the front and back camera at the same time. The name is a combination of “both” and “selfie.”
As expected, the phone comes with a near-stock version of Android 7.1.1. Nokia 8 will go on sale in Europe for €599 (about $700), while there is no immediate plan to sell it in the United States.
