The Nokia 8 Android flagship is now on sale

06 September 2017

Nokia's first Android flagship smartphone - the Nokia 8 - is now on sale in Australia for $899 through JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman.

Prior to the Nokia 8, Nokia's entire range of Android smartphones consisted of cheaper, lower end devices with more modest hardware under the hood. Based on hardware alone, the Nokia 8 is more so positioned as an alternative to the top tier devices on the market.

The Nokia 8's three 13MP cameras - two on the back, one on the front - have been co-developed with Carl Zeiss, a German optic manufacturer. While the companies recently rekindled their partnership, Nokia's relationship with Zeiss dates back to its pre-Windows Phone days.

While the dual rear-facing cameras can be used in tandem for enhanced depth of field in photos, Nokia wants you to use front and back together. Dubbed the "bothie" or "Dual-Sight mode", the Nokia 8 can split your images in half and simultaneously capture photos or videos from both front and rear cameras.

Other key specifications for the Nokia 8 include a 5.3-inch Quad HD display, a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, IP54 splash resistance, and a 3090mAh battery.

As with Nokia’s other recent smartphones, the Nokia 8 runs a "pure" version of Android Nougat free from modification. Nokia says all of its device will receive two years of major operating system updates and monthly security updates based on Google's schedule.
