Nokia 8 Announced, True Nokia Flagship Featuring ZEISS Optics, IP54 Certification

HMD Global's off to a good start with their earlier announcement of the Nokia 5, 6, and 7 mid-range devices. But what will take the cake this year for them is definitely the much-anticipated Nokia 8.

The Nokia 8 is what the then Microsoft-led company should've produced, instead of the now virtually non-existent Windows Phone platform. It's the first smartphone from HMD Global to feature a ZEISS Optics collaboration on its camera, the first smartphone to support Dual Sight camera technology that allows both front and back cameras to simultaneously broadcast videos or images natively to social platforms such as Facebook and YouTube, and the first smartphone to support Nokia's OZO Audio, bringing you a immersive 360° audio experience to your videos.

Hardware-wise, the Nokia 8 sports a Snapdragon 835 chipset, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of onboard storage (with up to 256GB external storage support). It also has a 3090mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support, NFC, and IP54 certification (splash-resistant certification). All of these are paired with a 5.3-inch QHD display, making the Nokia 8 a portable media flagship.

The Nokia 8's price is announced to be at €599 (around P36,000+ before taxes and other fees), but we're hoping that it won't debut at that price here in the Philippines.
