Classic phone brand Nokia has just introduced a new flagship smartphone: the Nokia 8. The device’s impressive list of features should give high-end Android OS-based phone shoppers an extremely attractive alternative to Samsung.
The Nokia 8 is stacked with advanced tech and high-end components. Users will be especially drawn to the high-performance camera, and the clear images provided by the 5.3-inch OLED display.
Nokia threw a lot into the display, and it’s impressive: it utilizes LCD technology and runs at a QHD resolution of 2560 x1440 pixels.
The Nokia 8 boasts a Snapdragon 835 processor, Adreno 540 GPU, and 4 GB of RAM for optimal performance. Storage capacity starts at 64 GB, and users can expand it with a microSD.
The 13-MP dual-lens camera is actually constructed with Carl Zeiss optics and advanced optical image stabilization; Zeiss, it’s worth pointing out, designed the optics for SLR legend Contax, as well as many industry-standard motion picture lenses, and a few for NASA. The Nokia 8 can capture 4K video; interestingly, it also features a “bothie” mode, where front and back cameras are used simultaneously.
Finnish firm HMD Global is behind the new Nokia creation; they were also behind the relaunch of the Nokia 3310 earlier this year.
The new Nokia 8 comes with Android 7.1.1 Nougat. It’s available for $705, and in four colors.
