Thanks to the new "Bothie" feature, Nokia 8's selfies can show both sides of the story. The specs are top-tier, including a dual-camera setup with Zeiss optics, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage, and more.

Just as expected, the Nokia 8 is finally here. This new handset is the most powerful Nokia-branded phone since HMD Global took over. Leaving the high-end specs aside, the main selling point of the Nokia 8 is the new "Bothies" feature that turns selfies into a side-by-side image that shows the content captured by both the front and back cameras. Even more, "bothies" can be streamed live to Facebook and YouTube.

Next to the "bothies," Nokia 8 comes with the following highlights:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 835
  • Memory/Storage: 4 GB RAM; 64 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 256 GB
  • Display: 5.3-inch IPS multitouch with 2,560 x 1,440 pixels and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection
  • Cameras: 13 MP front, 13 MP + 13 MP with Carl Zeiss optics, laser & PDAF, OIS, dual-LED flash on the back
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, GPS, USB Type-C
  • Operating system: Android 7.1.1 Nougat
  • Weight/Dimensions: 0.35 pounds; 5.96 x 2.90 x 0.31 inches
  • Battery: 3,090 mAh (Li-ion, non-removable) with Quick Charge 3.0 support
  • Colors: Polished Copper, Steel, Tempered Blue (with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage), Polished Blue

The Nokia 8 is certified IP54 for protection from dust and water splashes. Customers in Europe should get it in early September for a starting price of around US$700. Unfortunately, there is no information about the arrival of the Nokia 8 in the US yet, but we will keep you posted.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
