Paramount Electronics, the official distributor of Nokia smartphones in Nepal is ready to bolster their smartphone lineup with the new Nokia 8. The flagship of the company, which was launched a couple of months ago, is ready to land in the Nepali market within November. Unlike Nokia 3, 5, and 6 — which was targeted to budget-conscious users — the Nokia 8 will be aimed at a different audience who are unready to compromise.
To outline the specs, the Nokia 8 comes with a 5.3-inch IPS LCD display with QHD resolution. The 2.5D curved glass of the device is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5; the RAM and storage are 6GB and 128GB respectively. The phone’s storage can be expanded through a microSD card, whereas the sturdily built device is IP57 certified making it splash proof.
Optics wise, the device is not a slouch either; the Carl Zeiss lens of the phone should provide you crisp images. The dual-camera setup of the phone comes with a 13MP color and monochrome sensor with 1.2µm pixels and f/2.0 aperture; the first lens has OIS, while laser autofocus and dual-LED flash is also present. Up front, there’s a similar 13MP camera with f/2.0 aperture for selfies and video chats.
Powering the phone will be the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset as seen on Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8. And thanks to the capabilities of the SoC, the phone can record 360-degree spatial audio for sound clarity and immersion. The Nokia 8 is expected to arrive in Nepal for Rs. 63,000.
