HMD Global, which owns Nokia’s brand licensing rights, has unveiled its latest Android smartphone in the form of the Nokia 8.
The Nokia 8 features the world’s first dual-sight ‘bothie’ function, developed with Zeiss optics. This enables owners to simultaneously use the front and rear cameras in a split screen for both photos and videos, meaning the capability can be used to livestream natively and in real-time to social feeds.
Furthermore, the device includes OZO Audio, the first smartphone to do so, bringing 360° audio to 4K video. And, the phone features Qualcomm’s SnapdragonTM 835 Mobile Platform.
“We know that fans are creating and sharing live content more than ever before, with millions of photos and videos shared every minute on social media,” said Juho Sarvikas, CPO of HMD Global. “People are inspired by the content they consume and are looking for new ways to create their own. It’s these people who have inspired us to craft a flagship smartphone which perfectly balances premium design, an outstanding experience and powerful performance.”
The smartphone carries a 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory with and external MicroSD card slot supporting up to 256GB. It has a 5.3inch display, 13-megapixel front and rear cameras, USB3.1, and a 3.5mm headphone jack, among other features.
The Nokia 8 will be available in polished blue, polished copper, tempered blue, and steel. It will begin retailing in September at a global average price of €599 (£544).
