At last, the time has come and we finally get a proper Nokia flagship smartphone that’s running on Android. It’s called the Nokia 8 and it’s an important device because it will show the world whether HMD Global (the company that owns the right to Nokia’s smartphones) has a grasp on how to make a compelling Android flagship — one that will capture the magic of the Nokias of old.
