In 2017 Nokia started their adventure after a long while with the introduction of three awesome device the Nokia 3,5 and 6.Now they are here again as the company announced the brand new phone called the Nokia 8.

As with Nokia’s previous Android phones, the story is very much about the care and attention that goes into creating the handset, including the anodisation and polishing needed to create the Polished Copper glossy finish.

If you’ve been longing for a Nokia flagship running Android since the Lumia, then this is as close as you will get. It boasts features that will rival some of the big players on the market, including a flagship grade processor.


In terms of design Nokia did a good job in terms of body work,there’s an aluminum unibody design that includes metal edges around the phone, but while the back is metal too, the feel on the rear will change depending on what version you buy. The body of the phone is thin, coming in at 7.9mm at its thickest point, but the edges curve down, so it sits comfortably in the hand.


It comes with a 5.30-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1440 pixels by 2560 pixels at a PPI of 554 pixels per inch. It’s an LCD panel that has a QHD resolution and 700 nits of brightness. That’s high for a smartphone and should mean your phone’s display is easily viewable even in particularly glaring sunlight.

Nokia is pushing the Nokia 8’s camera as a key selling point and these aren’t just regular cameras, but ones made by Carl Zeiss.At the  back you’ll find two cameras. One shoots in color, the other only in black and white,good news if you love dramatic, moody portraits. They both have 13-megapixel resolutions and both shoot video in 4K.

There’s a 13-megapixel camera on the front, and thanks to some software functions you can take photos with both the front and back camera to combine them into a single, split-screen image.




The Nokia 8 is powered by 1.8GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and it comes with 4GB of RAM and a water-cooling element that’s supposed to disperse heat around the phone more efficiently.

The phone packs 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card so you’ll be able to fill it full of your favorite apps and games too.As for the OS it will run on stock version of Android 7.1.1, Nokia said it will be updated to Android O as soon as possible.


The Nokia 8 is a dual SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone that accepts Nano-SIM and Nano-SIM. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, USB OTG, 3G and 4G. Sensors on the phone include Compass Magnetometer, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Ambient light sensor, Gyroscope and Barometer.

Below the screen is a fingerprint scanner between the two navigation buttons that seemed in an easy to reach position to tap to unlock the phone. There is promise of virtual surround sound with Nokia Ozo Audio algorithms.

The phone is splash-proof, not waterproof, which is disappointing given that proper waterproofing is something we’re now often seeing on top-end phones.


There’s a 3090mAh battery from which it’s claimed you’ll get over a day of use, with support for Quick Charge 3.0, so if you do go flat, you should be back in the game in no time at all. But there’s no wireless charging option.
