Nokia was one of the biggest phone manufacturers but it was left behind due to the rising popularity of iPhones and Android. They thought they will still be sought even the advent of iPhones and Android but they thought wrong. Now since they sold their services and devices to Microsoft on 2016. Now they are making an awesome smartphone which will compete and hopefully has durability as what they are known for since the past.
Design and Display
The design is great that looks similar to Sony’s XZ premium which has large bezel on top and below at the front but the difference is the edge is not rounded and hopefully it will have easier grip to hold. Screen size 5.7” with resolution 1440 x 2560 that gives 515 ppi which is great and they will still stick to the metallic design like the mid range Nokia 6. It is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 probably at the back and front. The backside though looks like it won’t be a magnet to smudges and fingerprints but we’ll see. There is a home button below at the center with the back and previously opened apps at the sides which looks similar to samsung’s smartphone. It would have been great if they removed the home button and hid it under the screen like other flagship smartphone released. The volume buttons are located at the right side and power button at the button with features for fingerprint scanner. As you can see at the front there is no front camera and is only available at the rear with lesser unspecified resolution the other version will have 24MP OIS + EIS primary camera. There will be two versions of Nokia 8 to be released one with the Snapdragon 835 chip and 6GB of RAM and a front camera with 12MP.
Specifications and Features
It will be on Android Nougat 7.0 with the other version with Snapdragon 835 and up to 128GB internal storage and has the option to add another external memory up to 256Gb, Even though the other version will be packed with the latest chipset the battery life is not yet known and hopefully equal to more than 4000mAh to have the longer battery life and able to compete with the latest smartphone released this year. It has fast charging capability which compensate if ever the battery released reaches almost 4000mAh. The sensors available will be fingerprint scanner, gyro, accelerometer and OTG ready same as the other version
The other rumored version will have Snapdragon 821 with lesser unspecified spec with no OIS plus EIS feature on primary camera. The internal will still be up to 128GB internal storage and an option to add an external memory to 256GB.The RAM however is less than the other which is 4GB of RAM.
We are still not sure what will be the future name of the Nokia device will be but hopefully they will stick to the Nokia 8 which has a nice ring to it compared to the D1C and P1.
