Nokia Set To Release New Flagship Device, Nokia 8

Nokia 8 bestows a 5.3-inch IPS 2K resolution display with the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on top. Nokia calls this "Bothies".

The Nokia 8 is one of the most anticipated smartphones of the year and rightly so - it is not only the first high-end Android smartphone from Nokia, but also the first flagship from the company's stable since the dark Windows Phone days.

It was previously thought both Nokia 8 and Nokia 9 handsets were in development - we wondered if we would see the Nokia 8 as a sort of high-mid-ranger, or a lower-tier flagship with slightly reduced specs from the Nokia 9 as a true leading model.

Perhaps the most relevant thing about the Nokia 8, though, is the fact that it has "Nokia" in its name.

One of the highlights of the device is its camera combination.

According to new details the Nokia 8 will have an RRP of around €520.

Few brands are capable of striking us with nostalgic reverence the way Nokia does. As well as being about the same height and width, these Android flagships are pleasingly slender. Do you want to get more information about upcoming Nokia handsets and cannot wait till launch?

The unibody Nokia 8 is built out of 6000-series aluminium and it will be available in glossy Polished Copper and Polished Blue colours, as well as matte Tempered Blue and Steel finishes. You're out of luck, then.

So yeah. As the image above indicates, the Nokia 8 is expected to be a minimalist device with a traditional set of buttons for navigation, backed by a fingerprint reader below the display. Nokia's big play here comes in the form of a partnership with Zeiss.

At the hardware front, the Nokia 8 will tick all of the right boxes. The SoC wouldn't be complete without 4GB RAM to make multitasking much easier and IP54 rating allowing the phone to take some splash damage, but not totally destroy the phone. There's a microSD card slot for additional expansion and it also features what the company is calling Nokia OZO spatial 360° audio. Nokia 8's specifications and features had been leaked online extensively, and for the most part there were no surprises in the phone.

Everyone loves a nicely chamfered edge, and these are quite plainly some of the finest chamfers you'll encounter on a smartphone.

When it comes to performance, you're in good hands no matter your mobile choice. HMD says it worked closely with Qualcomm to enable Dual-Sight video streaming on the Nokia 8, while minimising the thermal impact of the processing required. You can expect smooth operations for ages to come, as well as general energy efficiency and strong connectivity (up to 1Gbps peak speeds). With this price, it is not as costly as Apple and Samsung flagship but definitely, comes into the premium segment. The camera comes with a dual toned LED flash.

The Nokia 8's new "Dual Sight" snapper seems to be a serious rival to the OnePlus 5's own double-lens shooter. Both sensors help capture pictures and fuse them together to produce a detailed image.

Both phones here offer up to 4K video capture, as well as slow-mo and timelapse modes.
