Nokia 8: HMD's Latest Android Flagship Lets You Livestream Frontbacks
After starting with basic and mid-tier smartphones, HMG Global has finally launched a flagship Android handset, called the Nokia 8, which is expected to rival high-quality devices. With this flagship, HMD is putting its focus on content creators wanting to live stream video for their social feeds.
Specs wise, the newly launched Nokia 8 will be running on the Android 7.1.1Nougat. However, several reports claim that the device will come out running on Android O.
On the hardware side, there's a top-end Snapdragon 835 processor with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard memory, which is expandable via MicroSD card slot. The smartphone has 5.3-inch Ultra HD resolution display that puts it on the edge of phablet territory and directly within the current smartphone screen size sweet spot, Tech Crunch reported.
The device on board has dual rear cameras of 13MP (one color, one B&W) sensors, and a 13MP front facing the camera. Both cameras have f/2.0; using Zeiss optics, and support for 4K video. The Nokia 8 is clad in an aluminum unibody casing and has a fingerprint reader on the front side. The device is described as splash proof rather than waterproof.
The Nokia 8 has a special feature called "Bothies,| which uses Nokia's Dual Sight technology. This feature enables to use both front and back cameras together. There is also a support of live streaming from both cameras at once, as well as taking content to be saved and then shared.
The live-streamed videos from the Nokia 8 can be used with both YouTube and Facebook. HMD is trying to coin a hash taggable word to describe the "Bothie". The photos or videos are presented side-by-side, serving something similar to a picture-in-picture arrangement but in a way that is more appropriate for viewing on a small phone screen, as reported by Slash Gear.
Global RRP for the Nokia 8 is €599, and the final rollout is due to start in September. The smartphone flagship is coming in four colors: Polished Blue, Polished Copper, Tempered Blue and Steel.
