HMD Global have officially announced their much rumoured Nokia 8 flagship smartphone for a price tag of about 599 euros (~RM3030). Featuring a metal unibody chassis made from a single block of 6000 aluminum, the Nokia 8 packs in flagship features like a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB/128GB storage, USB Type-C, NFC, fingerprint sensor and a 5.3-inch LCD display with 2K or 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution and Gorilla Glass 5. On the back there are dual 13MP rear cameras (RGB + monochrome) with ZEISS lens, Optical Image Stabilization or OIS and Phase detection autofocus or PDAF. Another 13MP PDAF camera with ZEISS lens is on the front while a 3090 mAh battery with quick charging and Android 7.1.1 Nougat keeps the Nokia 8 powered.

The most stand-out feature of the Nokia 8 appears to be Dual Sight livestreaming which captures 4K video from both the front and back cameras at the same time or images on both for a "Bothie". Nokia's OZO audio technology captures 360 degree audio which you can see below. At 7.9mm thin, the phone isn't really the thinnest of devices despite the slightly smaller display but perhaps this is due to the graphite shielded copper pipe used to help cool it down. No Malaysia release date or pricing details yet but it is being priced globally as above and is expected to roll out in September 2017. The Nokia 8 will be available in Polished Blue, Polished Copper, Tempered Blue and Steel.
