Nokia 8 allows users to take ''bothies''

The body of Nokia 8 is built with aluminum and it comes in a variety of colors like Polished Copper, Polished Blue, etc.

"We know that fans are creating and sharing live content more than ever before, with millions of photos and videos shared every minute on social media", said HMD chief product officer Juho Sarvikas. The Nokia 8 is priced at Euro 599 (approx $705 / Rs. 45,000) and will be available from early September. This phone is packed with 3090mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0.

The highlight of the device is the Carl Zeiss cameras and the Bothie feature. Other features include optical image stabilization, phase detection autofocus, 1.12μm pixels, and a wide f/2.0 aperture.

So what is Nokia headlining as a particular strength or USP of the Nokia 8 - to stand out among the smartphone crowd? Both the front and rear cameras are capable of recording in 4k resolution. Design-wise, the Nokia 8 looks somewhat reminiscent of the earlier Lumia series.

The 2017 NFL Draft was granted to Philadelphia after being held in Chicago the previous two years. The NFL has suspended Gordon four times for violating its substance-abuse policy.

The Nokia 8 also packs high-end cameras, with a dual rear unit which comprises one 13MP monochrome camera and one 13MP colour camera. Earlier to this, the company launched the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, and Nokia 6 smartphones at MWC 2017. Since the company has just took the wraps off the Nokia 8, the one we have been waiting for so long to hear about, let's dive right into it and have a glimpse on its key specs.

In addition, the Nokia 8 is the first smartphone to feature Nokia Ozo Audio. It'll ship running Android Nougat 7.1.1. That's not all. Users can also stream the photos or videos in "bothie" mode directly to Facebook Live or YouTube from the camera app. The front selfie camera also had the same 13MP and f/2.0. The Nokia 8 can record 360-degree audio due to the three microphones located at the top and bottom of the phone, leading to deeper, more natural audio. There is also a Gloss Blue (there are a lot of blue options) that will be available with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of built-in storage. The front and rear cameras feature PDAF and the rear camera even features an IR range finder.

Connectivity features on the Nokia 8 include WiFi 802.11ac (MIMO), Bluetooth 5.0, 4G VoLTE, USB Type-C, Global Positioning System and NFC.
