Nokia 8 Killer Features Include 23MP Carl Zeiss Camera, 6GB RAM; Handset Will Resemble Nokia 6 [Video]
A concept video of the Nokia 8 recently made its rounds online. The clip showcased the high-end smartphone's camera and appearance, with its processor and RAM also teased.
The Nokia 8 resembles the Nokia 6 in terms of appearance, as seen in the concept video (which you can watch at the end of this report). The latter device was introduced at CES in January.
Both handsets sport a luxurious design, with the upcoming smartphone shown as a sleek block of metal and glass with thin side bezels, according to Android Headlines. The device in the concept video appears to have a stable build despite having a 2.5D curved glass atop its display.
A round camera housing protrudes from the handset's back, which is akin to the feature's positioning in the Nokia Lumia 1020 PureView, Forbes reported. The Nokia 8 will reportedly have a 23 MP primary camera (f/1.7 aperture and 1.8um pixel size) with a Carl Zeiss lens, which is used around the globe on SLR and rangefinder cameras. A 12 MP snapper is on the device's front part for taking selfies.
Judging from the concept video, the smartphone will have a 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display like what was said in previous speculations. The device will reportedly have two different versions; one model will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 chipset paired with 6 GB of RAM and the other equipped with Snapdragon alongside 4 GB of RAM, Trusted Reviews noted. Other speculated specs include a pair of front-facing speakers and 128 GB of internal storage.
HMD Global, which made the Nokia 6, assured the public that there will be a huge announcement about the Nokia brand later this month. HMD and Nokia confirmed a major event in Barcelona on Sunday, Feb 26, a day prior to the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017's kickoff date.
It's possible that the event will see the launch of the Nokia 8. In late 2016, HMD Global acquired the rights to use the Nokia brand name on their smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices.
The 5.5-inch Nokia 6 comes with 4 GB of RAM, a 3000 mAh Li-Ion battery, Android 7.0 Nougat, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 430 chipset, a 16 MP primary camera, an 8 MP front-facing snapper and 64 GB of internal storage.
