HMD Global, home of Nokia phones, announced the Nokia 8 will be available starting this September. The Nokia 8 brings three world-firsts to Android smartphones, including a debut collaboration with ZEISS optics.
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.
Nokia 8 is also the first smartphone to feature Nokia OZO Audio. OZO spatial 360° audio brings immersive audio experience to 4K video.
4.6mm thin at the edge and 7.3mm slim on average, Nokia 8’s unibody is milled from a single block of 6000 series aluminum and its design has been refined through a 40-stage process of machining, anodizing and polishing. Select models feature a high-gloss mirror finish. The phone features Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 Mobile Platform and paired with Android experience.
The Nokia 8 works with the Nokia Active Wireless Headset. This headset features a diamond cut design. The full portfolio of accessories for Nokia phones includes a range of headsets, portable speakers, in-car chargers, cases and screen protectors.
Nokia 8 will be available in four colors: Polished Blue, Polished Copper, Tempered Blue and Steel and will be available at a global average retail price of €599 with roll out throughout September.
