Oh no! Looks like this phone has been discontinued. But worry not, we have phones similar to Nokia 8 that are still available.
Nokia’s slowly and somewhat successfully making its comeback into the smartphone world. While it has baffled some people by reviving some of its releases like the Nokia 3310 2017, others such as the herculean Nokia 8 is poised to rub shoulders with the best in the business. Costing in excess of 80,000 rupees, let’s see if its price merits its specifications.
The caption defines what the Nokia 8 is all about; despite looking somewhat similar, there are notable differences between the two smartphones. Starting off with their design; while both the smartphones feature an all metal exterior, the Nokia 8 definitely features a much more polished and premium looking body. Acceptable dimensions are an added plus while the antenna bands from the Nokia 6 are gone as well.
The Nokia 8 definitely features the company’s most powerful display yet; we’re looking at an LG G5 styled 5.3 inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 554ppi pixel density topped with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Equating to a staggering 1440p HD resolution, the display size and quality are both adequately poised to fulfill your daily needs with aplomb. That being said, we do expect users to view the display with some skepticism as many would prefer at-least a 5.5 inches display nowadays.
The cameras department is where the Nokia 8 brings a significant upgrade upon its predecessors; as the caption suggests, the smartphone features a wonderful dual 13 megapixel primary sensor with a dual-tone LED flash. Nokia’s famed Carl Zeiss optics ensure that your camera’s lenses are sturdy to wear and tear while on the other hand, providing a crystal clear view. Other husky features include phase detection and laser autofocus that ensure your snapping and videography simply meets no compromise.
The smartphone’s selfie sensor is a complete beast in itself with a 12 megapixel sensor of its own. Photography well covered on both sides there Nokia 8!
Carrying-on with its bamboozling, the device features a hybrid octa-core processor with the following variant dependent RAM and internal storage:
• 64GB internal storage with 4GB RAM
• 128GB internal storage with 6GB RAM
The built-in Android Nougat simply won’t have any problems to run smoothly atop this processing power while both the variants also offer plenty of internal storage plus an external memory card-slot for further expansion. In complying with modern standards, the smartphone features a fingerprint scanner embedded in the front home-key. Quick Charge 3.0 ensures blistering-quick charging while non-removable battery was always going to be the case with any flagship, let alone with the Nokia 8. When it comes to its exterior, you can either choose from tempered blue, silver or copper gold. A great release there Nokia but we do feel that the smartphone’s a-tad overpriced!
• Well-built exterior through the use of premium build materials
• High quality display with good attention to detail
• A powerful dual-primary sensor and a 12 megapixel selfie sensor is exactly what the doctor ordered
• Excellent hardware ensures lag-free performance
• Tremendous amount of internal storage
• Complies with all customary modern-day features
• We’d understand if you were looking for at-least a 5.5 inches display
