Nokia 8 With Dual Zeiss ‘Bothie’ Camera Launched:Will You Get it For $705 (N260,850)?

HMD has just announced their first proper Nokia flagship
device at a press event held in London – the Nokia 8.

The Nokia 8 has a 5.3” IPS LCD display on the front with QHD
resolution and a blinding 700nits of max brightness. 2.5D Gorilla Glass 5
curves into the phone’s metal shell, which is milled out of 6000 series
aluminum. The phone measures 7.9mm at the thickest point and has basic
resistance to the elements with an IP54 rating.
Nokia 8 cameras 
The Nokia 8 comes with dual 13-megapixel f/2.0 RGB and
monochrome sensors at the back, and while that setup has been seen on several
other phones, HMD is betting big on “bothies” – the ability to
capture images and videos from front and rear cameras at the same time.
Apart from capturing still images from both sensors at the
same time and fusing them into a single picture, the Camera app on the Nokia 8
will let you stream these ‘bothies’ as full-HD live videos to Facebook and
