Splash-resistant Nokia 8 flagship now official
After countless leaks that round about the cyberspace, HMD Global has officially pulled the wraps off the Nokia 8, its new top-tier smartphone for the brand.
It’s also one of the first in the new generation of Nokia-branded phones to sport ZEISS camera lenses and features a Dual-Sight mode that lets you use both cameras (they call this #Bothie) for split interactions in photos, videos, and live broadcast. It has also been certified to be splash-resistant and has Nokia’s own OZO audio system for a 360-degree spatial audio listening.
Similar to the Nokia 6, the Nokia 8 will come in two variants — regular models sport 64GB of internal storage and 4GB RAM, while a Glossy Blue variant will feature a bigger 128GB of UFS 2.1 internal storage along with a beefier 6GB RAM.
