Nokia 8 has finally been launched, marking an end to the countless leaks and giving us the first true flagship Nokia Android phone to take on the likes of other phones.
Nokia 8 price in India, launch date, and design
The Nokia 8 will be available "globally" in early September, priced at equivalent of EUR 599 (approximately Rs. 45,000). An HMD Global representative told Gadgets 360 the Nokia 8 India launch will be in early October, and the Nokia 8 price in India will be known closer to launch.
Nokia 8 cameras department
The Nokia 8 comes with dual 13-megapixel f/2.0 RGB and monochrome sensors at the back, and while that setup has been seen on several other phones, HMD is betting big on "bothies" - the ability to capture images and videos from front and rear cameras at the same time.
Apart from capturing still images from both sensors at the same time and fusing them into a single picture, the Camera app on the Nokia 8 will let you stream these 'bothies' as full-HD live videos to Facebook and YouTube. The company says that worked closely with Qualcomm to enable Dual-Sight video streaming on the Nokia 8, while minimizing the thermal impact of the processing required.
Nokia 8 specifications and Android O promise
As for other key Nokia 8 specifications, there's the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC (four 2.45GHz Kyro cores and four 1.8GHz Kyro cores), which powers nearly all other Android flagships of this generation. There is just one variant - with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, though the phone will release in single SIM and hybrid dual SIM options, depending upon the markets. It comes with support for microSD cards of up to 256GB capacity and a 3090mAh battery.
