Nokia 8: Price, Specs, and Impressions

Paramount Electronics, the official distributor of Nokia smartphones in Nepal, has launched their flagship smartphone, the Nokia 8. The phone packs some powerful specifications, great build, capable dual cameras, and a splash resistant body. That included, here are all the things the phone brings to the table for a price of Rs 62,999.

The Nokia 8 sports a metallic build with a 5.3 inch Quad-HD IPS display at its center. The display is protected by Gorilla Glass 5 and is edged out by a 2.5D glass. Under the hood, the phone packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor backed by 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The internal storage can be further expanded via a micro-sd card up to 256GB but only at the expense of the dual-sim support the phone comes with.

Nokia with this phone has given high priority to the cameras! It packs a dual f/2.0 13MP Carl Zeis optics on the rear backed by OIS and laser autofocus. The Nokia 8 also has a f/2.0 13MP front camera for all your selfies. Software-wise, the phone runs an almost stock version of Android v7.1.1 Nougat. And finally powering this bad boy up is a 3090mAh non-user removable battery fostered by Quick Charge 3.0 and USB Type-C. And all this goodness comes encased in an IP54 rated body giving the phone some level of protection against dust and water.
