New Nokia’s first flagship is here – the Nokia 8. After starring in a number of leaks and rumors HMD Global took the wraps off from the Nokia 8 at an event in London on August 16. The phone set to compete with the who’s who of the mobile industry as it boasts off premium design, top of the line specifications, and Carl Zeiss optics.

Nokia 8 Features

The first Nokia branded Android flagship device design is not as alluring as the likes of Samsung Galaxy S8, LG G6 and Apple iPhone 7. The Nokia 8 flaunts a 2.5D glass fascia, a metal body made of 6000 series aluminum which is given a polished mirror finish. Having said that, the bezel size and capacitive keys at the bottom seems to me bit of a turn-off. It does come with a fingerprint sensor embedded home button.
