Two days back, Nokia under HMD Global, announced its most powerful Android smartphone dubbed as Nokia 8. The flagship device will go on sale globally from September 6th.
However, in Australia, the flagship device is up for pre-order through JB Hi-Fi and will be released on 7th September. It is priced at AUD 899 ($712.21).
Nokia 8 sports a 5.3-inch QHD display protected by Gorilla Glass 5. Sadly, if you are into bezel-less displays, Nokia 8 will disappoint you as it features thick bezels and physical buttons at the bottom. However, on the brighter side, it ships with Android 7.1.1 Nougat and Nokia has promised to ship regular and timely updates to the device.
Under the hood, Snapdragon 835 coupled with 4GB RAM and 64 GB ROM with microSD support powers Nokia 8. Nokia 8 packs in 3,090 mAh battery and USB (Type-C) Port 3.1.
In the camera segment, which is the USP of the device, Nokia 8 packs rear dual cameras of 13MP+13MP resolution and a 13MP selfie shooter. It comes with new features such as Bothie (Dual-Sight mode that lets you use both front and back cameras simultaneously for split-screen photos and video) and OZO spatial 360° audio built in. Further, you can record 4K video with Nokia OZO spatial 360° audio.
