Nokia 8 Specifications Review

Design & Display

Before this smartphone was launched, Nokia had already brought to Kenya the Nokia 3, 5 and 6.  As stated earlier, this is their first flagship.  This phone has the hallmarks we have seen in modern flagships but it still follows the design concept of the Nokia 3, 5 and 6.

The Nokia 8 is a slim attractive phone that features an all-aluminum design.  Its average thickness is 7.3mm: the thickest and slimmest areas are 7.9mm and 4.6mm respectively.  This phone provides 4 color options: matte blue, matte silver, polished copper and polished blue.  The color is on the back side of the device.

The Nokia 8 comes with a 5.3-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 pixels by 2560 pixels.  This is a very vibrant, clear, bright and crisp display.  The indented home button doubles as a fingerprint scanner.  This is plus for people who prefer front mounted fingerprint scanners. This phone is stunning, from both the front and the rear side.   Unfortunately, it is not waterproof like most flagships. The Nokia 8 is only splash proof (IP54 rating).

Hardware, Software & Performance Of The Nokia 8

This smartphone has a very good performance profile.  Its performance specs match those of other popular flagships.

The Nokia 8 is powered by a 2.45GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon -835 CPU coupled with 4GB of RAM.  This is recipe for top-notch performance. This hardware arrangement makes this phone a very powerful one. It has what it takes to handle the most demanding tasks.  In addition, this phone uses advanced cooling technology.  It uses graphite and a fluid-cooled copper pipe to disperse generated heat evenly.  With this phone, you will be able to run heavy applications for a long time without major heating problems.

The Nokia 8 provides 64 GB internal storage space.  There is an SD card slot that you can use to expand storage space by up to 256GB.

This smartphone is powered by a 3090mAh no-removable battery. It supports quick charging – Quick Charge 3.0.

This phone runs Android v7.1.1 out-of-the box.  You get a clean Android experience because there are no additional customizations. No bloatware! This means that you will always be able to get quicker updates. Upgrading to Android O will be fast.

Camera performance

The camera’s on the Nokia 8 set it apart.  This handset comes with a 13 megapixels Zeiss branded dual camera setup on the rear side; one is a bog-standard RGB 13MP sensor and the other is a monochrome f/2.0 13MP sensor.  The two work together to produce bright images with great detail and punchy colors.

Another intriguing feature of the Nokia 8 is referred to ‘’boothie”.  This is its ability to take photographs with both rear and front facing cameras at the same time.  Both shots are put in one frame.  This a great addition that can be quite helpful in YouTube, Facebook and Instagram live streams.
