With three innovations in one model, HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, last week launched the Nokia 8 at the Park Hyatt Dubai. Nokia 8 is a high performance, beautifully crafted smartphone, designed with content creators in mind. It brings three world-firsts to Android smartphones, including a debut collaboration with ZEISS optics.
The Nokia 8 smartphone introduces ‘Bothie’ – a world-first in enabling Dual-Sight video to be livestreamed natively and in real-time to social feeds such as Facebook and YouTube. Dual-Sight simultaneously harnesses both the front and rear cameras in a split screen visual for both photos and videos.
The best part is that the phone is also great in ‘selfies’ so users have both options at just one touch. The world-first livestream capability gives more immersive experiences for those who love to create and share special memories.
For us ladies who like our phones thin and sleek, the Nokia 8 is 4.6mm thin at the edge and just 7.3mm slim on average. Nokia 8’s seamless unibody is precision milled from a single block of 6000 series aluminium and its pure design has been refined through a 40-stage process of machining, anodizing and polishing.
Nokia smartphones always offer a pure Android experience, with no unnecessary apps slowing down the performance of your device. And with Nokia 8, pure Android combined with our innovative engineering processes unleashes the full potential of the SnapdragonTM 835 Mobile Platform. With monthly security updates, the Nokia 8 is safe and up-to-date.
HMD Global offer a range of accessories perfectly tailored to suit the active lifestyle of any Nokia 8 owner. The Nokia 8 works beautifully with the Nokia Active Wireless Headset – a lightweight, water, sweat, and dust proof premium headset. The full portfolio of accessories for Nokia phones includes a range of headsets, portable speakers, in-car chargers, cases and screen protectors.
Nokia 8 will be available in four colours: Polished Blue, Polished Copper, Tempered Blue and Steel and will be available in the UAE at an average retail price of 1699 AED starting September 21, 2017.
