We have been using the new Nokia 8 for over 2 weeks now and the verdict is a big YES!
This one is a phone for the NOW!
The three USPs of this phone are definitely a stand-out.
The Nokia 8 features a dual-sensor rear shooter that can capture ‘bokeh’ images with a nice-looking background blur and boasts of RGB and monochrome sensor for better low-light photography. The available modes include Beautify, Panorama, Auto, Bokeh, and Manual.
The camera has been made in partnership with Zeiss and there are lots of extra features to make this one of the best phone cameras on the market.
Be less Selfie, be more Bothie says the Nokia 8 and the ‘Bothie’ mode uses both the front-facing and rear-facing cameras at the same time, so you can capture what’s behind your phone – probably yourself – as well as what’s in front. Perfect for those moments when you want to capture your ecstatic face looking at your baby for the first time!!!
An interesting feature and a world-first is the Dual-Sight video to be live-streamed natively and in real-time to social feeds such as Facebook and YouTube. Dual-Sight simultaneously harnesses both the front and rear cameras in a split screen visual for both photos and videos. With just one touch, this world-first live stream capability gives more immersive experiences for those who love to create and share special memories.
The Nokia’s OZO 3D audio capture tech allows for more immersive video when you’re recording.
The design is one of the key elements and is a beautiful and elegant phone to handle and flaunt. It is made up of an aluminium body with metal edges and comes in steel and tempered blue colours. Weighing 160 gms, it is a thin phone and sits comfortably in the hand. The LCD panel has a QHD resolution and 700 nits of brightness – that's high for a smartphone, and display is easily viewable even in glaring sunlight (a major problem in most phones!).
The phone features Qualcomm’s powerful SnapdragonTM 835 Mobile Platform and paired with the pure, secure, and up to date Android experience ensures outstanding performance.
The Nokia 8 has been designed from the ground up with the consumer in mind to deliver unique content capture and sharing experiences. This requires it to be as meticulously designed on the inside as it is on the outside. To keep your phone working harder for longer, the design, innovation and engineering teams worked hand-in-hand to deliver. The result is a full-length graphite shielded copper cooling pipe that dissipates the heat generated by the high-performing system across the full length and breadth of the handset. The Nokia 8 runs cooler in even the most demanding situations.
Nokia 8 is Qualcomm® Quick ChargeTM 3.0 compatible, meaning when your battery is running low you can get back to recording your important moments sooner.
Nokia 8 is available in four colors: Polished Blue, Polished Copper, Tempered Blue and Steel in the UAE at an average retail price of 1699 AED starting September 21, 2017.
