The Nokia 8

As for the Nokia 8 smartphone, it does not disappoint. The handset fused the best hardware with the stock Android experience which only boots in Google-made smartphones. Aside from the fact that it ticks with the most powerful Snapdragon chipset, the Nokia 8 also comes with three new amazing features prospective buyers will love.

For one, the Dual-Sight camera which we have seen working in action uses the front and back cameras simultaneously to make a split-screen display. Users can use the Dual-Sight in capturing stills or even do live sessions. Nokia 8's camera system is a brainchild of the partnership with Zeiss optics. Both rear cameras comes with 13MP sensors. The selfie camera is also a 13MP affair.
