Nokia 8 launched, boast of dual-sight mode”

As analyst CCS Insight notes, the handset will be "hugely important in getting Nokia-branded smartphones back on the mobile phone map".

Then we compare the Nokia 8 against the OnePlus 5, where we discuss why the Nokia 8's price is more than the OnePlus 5. A flagship phone from Nokia that could rival the likes of the iPhones and Samsung's Galaxy S smartphones.

Unveiled yesterday by Nokia's brand licensee HMD Global, the handset combines new video, sound and performance features in a pitch to video creators.

While the design is impeccable, what Nokia is really pushing however is a particular feature within the camera which allows you to use both the front-facing and rear-facing cameras at the same time creating what the company calls a "bothie" (instead of a selfie). Both cameras feature 13-megapixel sensors, but one is for colour and the other is for monochrome, offering more sharp and vibrant images.

HMD has also added Ozo Audio, which means that much like Nokia's futuristic VR camera, the Nokia 8 will capture 360-degree audio, allowing for it to be broadcast live on streams.

The Galaxy S8 and perhaps soon, the Apple iPhone 8 is going to be sold against the Nokia 8. Nokia 8 doesn't disappoint at all since it is equipped with only high-end specs and innovative features.

The Nokia Dual Sight feature. It has a 5.3-inch IPS LCD QHD display and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

Nokia says the "Gloss Blue" variant will have 6GB of RAM with all other variants coming with 4GB of RAM; they list the colors available and we only see Polished Blue, Tempered Blue, Steel, Polished Copper listed.

The all-metal aluminum body gives the Nokia 8 the premium look it needs.

These camera features may be enough for the flawless selfie; however, Nokia is introducing the "Bothie", nickname for the Dual-Sight feature.

The company's chief product officer, Juho Sarvikas said that the new phone was designed with social media sharing in mind. The internal storage of the phone can be expanded up to 256GB via microSD card.

The Nokia 8 offers a non-removable 3090mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support.

One feature, which is rare among most Android handset manufacturers these days, is how the operating system is implemented.

"People love to share and tell stories".

During the period of anticipation, the company went ahead to release several promotional materials, stating that the device will run on "Pure version of Android" this time.

The new handset, which is being distributed by HMD Global under a 10-year licensing agreement reached in 2016, will sell for an average of $705 around the world, according to an August 16 announcement by the company.
