HMD has said that the Nokia 8 will fetch €599.

Nokia 8 specifications and features

Nokia 8 looks every bit of a high-end hero Nokia needs. However, there's more to it than a spec sheet. Below are features of the Nokia 8.



The Smartphone features a strange size screen of 5.3 inches. Regarding dimensions, the phone is expected to measure 151.55 x 73.7mm in size and will come in the following color variants: Copper, Black, Silver, Copper-Gold, and Blue. The phone is made out of CNC 6000 series aluminum with a unibody design and is 7.9mm thick. It's IP54 certified, making it splashproof but not waterproof. However, it will be okay in a slight rain shower.

Internal specifications

The Nokia 8 phone is expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and will come with 4GB RAM or 6GB RAM option, which will be further accompanied with 64GB of internal storage, as well as micro SD expansion for those who want more space. Like with other Android-powered phones, Nokia 8 is also expected to offer the latest version of the OS "Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system" and will regularly get updates from Android.

The Nokia 8 features 13 Megapixel dual-camera sensors by Carl Zeiss and an 8 Megapixel front shooter for selfie lovers. One of the 13 Megapixel rear shooters captures images in RGB, while the other captures images in monochrome. The combine pictures that are taken from each camera allow better low-light photography. The camera app also lets you put front and back cameras side-by-side, for either video recording or still shot, and you can even stream live straight to Facebook or YouTube.


The Nokia 8 has a 5.3-inch 2.5D USB Type-C port. It makes use of an IPS panel with QHD resolution (2560p x 1440p). The phone lacks some of the HDR techs of higher-priced Smartphones, but it should still have the ability reach seven hundred nits of brightness when it's trying to combat bright sunshine.


The battery on the phone is 3090mAh, which should be good for a day and a half and is charged using the USB Type-C port. There's Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 tech in here too, and it all works through the USB Type-C port that’slocated at the bottom of the phone.
