The comeback of Nokia has been one of the more exciting things in the phone world this year, and finally, they have released their flagship device the Nokia 8.

The Nokia 8 comes with a 5.3-inch Quad HD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

Nokia has carved the 8 from a single block of 6000 series aluminium and the handset comes in a range of colour options.

The handset is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor buddied with 4GB of RAM. Storage weighs in at 64GB.

There is also a microSD slot for additional storage, and the device comes loaded with Android Nougat. It will also be one of the first phones to receive Android O.

One of the big selling points for a lot of Android fans is that the Nokia devices are using virtually stock Android, so there is no bloatware or unpleasant skins bogging your nice new phone down. The Nokia 8 could end up becoming the new choice Pixel/Nexus fans.

The new Nokia features a 13 MP dual image-fusion rear camera with both colour and monochrome sensors. Additionally, there’s a wide-angle 13 MP phase detection autofocus front camera.

Nokia has included a new gimmick for the selfie loving generation, “Bothies”, these allow you to record from the front and rear camera at the same time using a split screen set up that can be live streamed to both Facebook and YouTube.

It would have been great if they had squeezed a big battery in there, instead, there is a relatively average 3090 mAh battery

Nokia has so far only confirmed the Europe pricing, which will be €599. We’d expect to pay around £549 in the UK.

It will go on sale in September.
