HMD Global has taken all the rights to manufacture Nokia mobiles with which it launched the Nokia 3,5,6 mobiles. The company has made another move to launch a flagship smartphone which has a similar look of its predecessors but a dual camera. The company has also introduced a camera feature which includes the ‘bothie’ mode, which will allow users to use both front and back camera on a single screen.
Finding a reliable, well-built Android phone with few software modifications and a reasonable price tag is harder than it once was. OnePlus was once the favorite for this region but it didn’t manage to put the price tag below $500 and made it to the expensive one. Nokia has added what it calls “Ozo Audio” to the Nokia 8. The Ozo, for those not in the know, is Nokia’s (that’s OG Nokia, not HMD) take on a 360-degree camera for creating VR content but HMD is bringing its audio feature with this mobile.
The Nokia 8 undergoes a rigorous 40-stage process of machining, anodizing and polishing to ensure its distinctive design pairs flawlessly with the polished aluminium unibody. The smartphone is first for mobile phones, the exclusive Dual-Sight mode lets you use both front and back cameras simultaneously for split-screen photos and video.
