Nokia 8 Specifications- Camera
That dual camera we mentioned earlier could end up being one of the Nokia 8’s biggest selling points. Rumors claim that the setup is comprised of a regular main camera and a secondary one that shoots in black and white, much like what Huawei has been using for its flagship phones recently. The strength of such a camera arrangement is that a monochrome camera is more sensitive to light, hence it can capture more detail with less noise than a color counterpart. Visual information from both sensors can be combined in software to produce sharper, higher-quality images, even in low light. Plus, you’ll be able to shoot dramatic, monochrome images for your Instagramfollowers’ viewing pleasure.
Nokia 8 Specifications- Design
In the fast-moving smartphone world, HMD is definitely behind when it comes to design. The device looks a lot like the other budget-conscious Nokia HMD phones—and a lot like a phone design from last year. There are tall top and bottom bezels, capacitive hardware navigation buttons, and a front fingerprint reader. That’s disappointing given the more modern slim-bezel designs we’ve seen from Samsung, LG, Xiaomi, and (if it ever launches) Essential. I think the Nokia 8 will need a competitive price to pair with the old-school design, something that puts it in “budget flagship” territory with the similarly specced, similarly designed OnePlus 5.
Nokia 8 Specifications – USP [Unique Selling Price]
The most talked about feature of the Nokia 8 according to Nokia 8 Specifications and design is its dual camera setup. Leaks have almost confirmed that the smartphone will sport dual Carl Zeiss lenses, placed vertically instead of horizontally. Images of the smartphone posted by leakster Evan Blass showed the camera enclosure surrounded by a metal ring, so it could have a slight bump. One can also see a dual LED flash setup at the back of the Nokia 8. Previous reports indicate that the camera pair on the Nokia 8 will come with a 13MP resolution. Also spotted at the back is a model number TA-1012 and a “Designed by HMD Global” inscription.
Another factor to take note is of is Nokia’s “Pure Android promise.” Expect the Nokia 8 to launch with the latest version of Android Nougat. It will also be one of the first few devices to get the Android O update, when Google officially releases the same.
In the specs department, the Nokia 8 is expected to run on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 platform. It is also believed to have two RAM options, 4GB and 8GB. The entire package is said to be powered by a 3,000 mAh battery.
