Nokia 8 – design, components and camera
Design of Nokia 8 hard to call a breakthrough. In the age of frameless smartphones may not be exaggerating over the range, but the whole composition looks neat and elegant. The front lower frame is equipped with a Home button and two touch buttons. The upper frame was developed by the speaker and the camera. The model will be available in the following color variants : Polished Blue, Tempered Blue, Steel, Polished CopperWith regard to performance, Nokia 8 will remain at the highest level. The heart of the smartphone is Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 , which is one of the most powerful and state-of-the-art processors. It will support 4 GB of RAM, which should suffice for all tasks placed in front of the handset. At this point it is not worth succumbing to the Chinese smartphones that come with 6 GB and more – the Samsung Galaxy S8 also has 4 GB of RAM and is currently one of the best devices. Additionally, as we can read on the manufacturer's website, the "glossy blue" variant will be a premium variant with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory. Nokia's flagship is equipped with three lenses, each with 13 megapixels. One on the front and a double camera on the back panel. Interestingly, the Nokia 8 received the feature of streaming video from two cameras at once, so our live coverage can be even more interesting and original. In addition, the camera is signed Zeiss logo, so we can be almost sure that the quality of pictures will not disappoint us. With such capabilities of Nokia 8, it is highly probable that we will be in our TOP 10 smartphones for photography. The Nokia 8 variety of memorable memories will be equipped with the OZO audio feature. This innovation is that the handset uses several microphones to record sound at 360 degrees. This means that if we want to record something like a station announcement and in the background we will be disturbed by the noise, we will be able to focus on the direction from which the noise comes from reducing the unwanted noise. Sounds very interesting, especially when combined with a camera that gives you two-way accounts at the same time. In practice, it may work well as a vlog recorder and video streamer. Unfortunately, most likely the price will be 599 euros instead of the previous reported about 520 euros. The conversion is about 2550 – 2600 PLN (depending on the course), which is not a barrier price for a flagship device, but as the saying goes – it is better to be surprised than to be disappointed. And how do you look at Nokia 8? [Update price] On the manufacturer's website in the pre-sale appeared a model in the color Steel and the price of 2599 zł.
