Nokia 8 with Dual-lens rear camera, Snapdragon 835 goes official

Nokia 8 with Dual-lens rear camera, Snapdragon 835 goes official

It has a 5.3inch display, 13-megapixel front and rear cameras, USB3.1, and a 3.5mm headphone jack, among other features. Nokia 8 is expected to make its debut in Europe in early September for €599, but HMD has no immediate plans to release it in the United States.

The Nokia 8 is priced at Euro 599, which is approximately Rs. 45000. It has the design and aesthetics of an old Nokia device, along with modern technology. While the matte finish will be available in tempered blue and steel, the glossy finished variant will come in polished copper and polished blue. We first hear about the Nokia 8 back in July of this year and even then we had reason to believe it would be the company's flagship smartphone. Nokia had been using Zeiss optics in its Symbain smartphones and now, HMD Global has signed an exclusive partnership to use Zeiss optics in the new generation Nokia devices.

HMD Global hasn't set a specific release date yet for the US, nor did it confirm pricing. It is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor, and features 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage.

Nokia's gen-next smartphone offers the users with a 5.3 inched QHD IPS LCD display, which comes out with a resolution of 2560 x 1440. Nokia is going to launch the Snapdragon 835 in an event that is conducted in London at 7.30 PM which is at 12 AM on August 17 as per Indian timing. It's not a bad idea, though there is the question of the disparity in quality since rear cameras are usually better equipped than the front. The support for MicroSD card helps in storage expansion possible by up to 256GB.
