Nokia 8 is HMD Global’s flagship device for the year and it further cements the belief that Nokia is back and will be a serious competitor to the existing dominating smartphones. By announcing the Nokia 8, the company is trying to prove that you don’t need over the top specifications to get the best performance out of the hardware. This explains why the smartphone has only 4GB of RAM, something that is consistent across many flagships today. The Nokia 8 is supposed to deliver on its promise of unhindered performance because it runs Stock Android and will receive updates as soon as they are made available by Google. At the launch event, HMD Global’s Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas did mention that even though Nokia 8 will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat right out of the box, it will be the “fastest way for consumers to get Android O.” The real highlight of the smartphone, however, happens to be its imaging package, which features dual 13MP cameras on the back, and a 13-megapixel large sensor in the front for selfies with Autofocus. Nokia has also bundled OZO audio onto the smartphone that will enable it to pickup 3D spatial sound, improving the audio experience of the videos shot on the Nokia 8. Despite the value the brand carries and even with Zeiss optics and the works, can Nokia 8 be the value for money proposition in the already crowded Flagship smartphone space?
