Nokia 8 Pro is the next flagship of HMD Global. We know a lot about its specifications, the release dates and cameras. Will Nokia 8 Pro be a smartphone that is worth buying?
The Finns hooked on Nokia 8. This is how you can summarize the policy of the company that already at MWC showed another variant of its current flagship. Nokia 8 Sirocco, because it is said, is a better smartphone from the original. However, I am worried about something else – a mess in naming. And this is not good for anyone.
Nokia 8 Pro is Sirocco on steroids
As you can read in the premiere entry of Alexander, Nokia 8 Sirocco is not exactly the variant of the "primary" flagship. As for me, the Nokia 8 Plus would be the most here. However, it is less important for names, because you have to admit that it looks much better about the original. And the Nokia 8 Pro is supposed to be better in every respect. Let's start with the screen.
It is a pity that it is not OLED
The display in Nokia 8 Pro is to have a diagonal of 6 inches and a Full HD + resolution. Fortunately, there was information about aspect 18: 9, because the other would be called uncomfortable at such a size. You can, of course, complain that the sharpness of the image is not abducting, but I disagree with it. FullHD is enough, and moreover it handles the battery more gently. It is a pity that Nokia has not decided to use the OLED screen. Even the best IPS display will not provide such color reproduction and perfect black.
The Nokia 8 Pro is supposed to be a great photosmophone
I guess none of us have any doubts as to what the producers will want to convince us to change the smartphone for the newer one. Hardly anyone starts the performance – Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 with Snapdragon 625 is enough for almost everyone. Now, users are struggling with software. The same applies to cameras. Matrices and lenses will no longer be much better – this is shown, for example, by a relatively small improvement in the quality of photos between Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S9. Of course, the latter takes better pictures, but the S6 can do it – even 3 years after the premiere. While the software is important, it must have a solid foundation in the matrix. In the case of Nokia 8 Pro, we will have two 16-megapixel cameras . If it's supposed to be a great smartphone, then the Finns need to take care of clear lenses – f / 1.6 is the minimum for me. I also count on something more than a less-than-useful "bothie" mode. Nokio, you can afford more.
An efficient flagship – like everyone in 2018
I bet you guess what components Nokia 8 Pro will have. I certainly will not surprise you saying that the processor is Snapdragon 845 . A great layout that in addition to Nokia 8 Pro will go as the first smartphone HMD Global. Variants? 6 + 64 and 8 + 128 GB. That is everything we expect of a flagship in 2018. Everything below would be a disappointment.
The Nokia 8 Pro will surprise you with a battery
4000 mAh . This link is to have a new flagship from the Finns. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems to me that such capacities are rare in the flagship world. At the moment, only Huawei Mate 10 Pro comes to mind. So you can easily count on the fact that Nokia 8 Pro will allow the user to do more than just the standard "from morning to evening". I really count on this aspect of the new HMD smartphone.
A smartphone with pure Android? Nokia 8 Pro
Another information, another reason to buy. Nokia 8 Pro, like several other smartphones of this brand, is to work on the spotless Android Oreo . As we have already got used to, Nokia is updating. Could Nokia 8 Pro be a Finnish answer to Google Pixel 2 XL? I see a lot of similarities between these models – focusing on cameras and pure Android are the simplest examples.
The premiere and price of Nokia 8 Pro
The premiere of Nokia 8 Pro was reportedly scheduled for August this year . Do you know what August means? Yes, of course – it's a competition with a competitor who is terribly hard to beat. I mean Samsung Galaxy Note 9. A bold idea, my Finnish friends. I hope that after this clash you will not need to collect you from the ring. Finally, something about the price. We do not know any specific value, but Nokia 8 Pro is supposed to be cheaper than Nokia 9 – the "real" flagship for 2018. This means more than I expect valuation at around PLN 3,000 – everything above will be a disappointment. Source: gizmochina
