Nokia has come a long way with the launch of its flagship phone - the Nokia 8.

Nokia's gen-next smartphone, the Nokia 8 has been making rounds on the internet for quite a while now.

Nokia wants to invent the #Bothie and popularise the use of both front and rear cameras simultaneously with its "Dual-Sight" mode.

Back to the, uh, "bothie" (a term I hope no one will ever use in real life). The video is automatically split down the middle to show both viewpoints which could be useful in order to see live reactions to some important event.

The phone introduces a Dual-Sight video livestreaming feature. The Nokia 8 is priced at Euro 599 (approx $705 / Rs. 45,000) and will be available from early September. Other features include a fingerprint sensor at the back, Android 7.1.1 Nougat (monthly security updates and Android O promised), USB Type-C 3.1, and a 3.5mm dedicated headphone jack. The Nokia 8 is carved out of a single block of aluminum and comes with ZEISS powered dual cameras, pure Android, top of the line specifications, OZO audio and much more.

Nokia's latest flagship device comes out into the markets with a 5.3 inched 2K display. There's also a 3,090mAh battery, which HMD claims will get you more than a full day of usage, complete with support for Quick Charge 3.0.

The Nokia 8 has an expensive price tag of 599 euro, which is around $70. There are four colors available - Polished Copper, Polished Blue, Tempered Blue, and Steel. It will also be the first smartphone to feature Nokia OZO audio, a 360-degree spatial audio for an immersive audio experience to complement the 4K Video capturing. Internally, the phone comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage.

The Nokia 8 also packs high-end cameras, with a dual rear unit which comprises one 13MP monochrome camera and one 13MP colour camera. Let us now take a detailed look at specifications of the Nokia 8. The display will be compact at 5.3-inches with 2560 x 1440 pixels. The Gloss Blue variant jumps to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

The front camera is also 13MP, with all the units equipped with an f2.0 Zeiss lens. The front camera of Nokia 8 is 13 megapixels too.
