So let’s break things down a little bit.


The Nokia 8 comes with a 5.3″ inch display which goes down well with me. I actually don’t fancy bulky phones. But who knows? maybe you might.


Supports 3G and 4G Network which is a big plus on our side. But then, which high end phone won’t support 4G?


The Nokia 8 might come in two variants, One having an internal memory of 64gb and Ram of 4gb while the other comes with an internal memory of 128gb and ram of 6gb. The NOKIA 8 promises to be real fast.


The Nokia 8 ships with a very high resolution camera of 13mp rear and 13mp front. People have been saying this is too small but remember that a camera isn’t all about the mega pixels. There are a lot more factors that determines the sharpness and clarity of a camera and to the best of my knowledge, Nokia has never let us down in the camera department.


The Nokia 8 comes with a 3090 mah battery with fast charging included. I guess this is good enough for me.


The Nokia 8 is not yet available in Nigeria. As soon as it’s available, we’ll keep you posted.


The Nokia 8 is expected to start at about 600 euros totaling about 255, 000 Naira in the parallel market.
