Nokia 8: What you need to know


Nokia 8
The new Nokia 8 by HMD Global is a high performance smartphone, designed for content creators. It brings three world-firsts to Android smartphones, including a debut collaboration with ZEISS optics.

With performance and pure Android at its heart, as well as the most advanced aluminium unibody design to date, the Nokia 8 is a true flagship Nokia smartphone.

The Nokia 8 introduces a world-first in enabling Dual-Sight video to be livestreamed natively and in real-time to social feeds such as Facebook and YouTube. Dual-Sight simultaneously harnesses both the front and rear cameras in a split screen visual for both photos and videos with just one touch.

The front and rear-facing cameras on the Nokia 8 have been co-developed with ZEISS optics for an optimum all round experience. Content creators can natively broadcast their unique stories to social media through the Dual-Sight functionality located within the camera app with unlimited photo and video uploads to Google Photos.

Nokia 8 is also the first smartphone to feature Nokia OZO Audio. OZO spatial 360° audio brings a fully immersive audio experience to 4K video – combining three microphones with exclusive Nokia acoustic algorithms to capture audio with immersive 360° spatial surround sound. 4K videos can be shared with OZO Audio anywhere; its binaural codecs enable high fidelity playback even on devices without OZO Audio.

With measurement of 4.6mm thin at the edge and just 7.3mm slim on average, Nokia 8’s seamless unibody is precision milled from a single block of 6000 series aluminium and its design has been refined through a 40-stage process of machining, anodizing and polishing.

Nokia smartphones always offer a pure Android experience, with no unnecessary apps slowing down the performance of the device, which features Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Mobile Platform, plus compatibility with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0.

Available in four colors: Polished Blue, Polished Copper, Tempered Blue and Steel with a global average retail price of P35,300 (€599) come September.
