When the Nokia 8 was introduced, many had expected it to be a serious photography contender. It had dual 13MP f/2.0 cameras at the rear with ZEISS optics which shoots in both colour and monochrome.
The Nokia flagship had just completed its evaluation at DxoMark and its scores were pretty disappointing. It’s so low that it is even ranked 5 points lower than the iPhone 6 that has a single 8MP f/2.2 camera.
This is not a jaw-dropping phone that will shock the world.
If you were one of the people who thought that when Nokia launches its first flagship Android smartphone, they would remind the world why they were the best all those years ago. That they would spank the likes of Samsung and Apple, then I’d hate to be the one to break it to you but the Nokia 8 is not that phone.
Instead, the Nokia 8 is quite the opposite of a flashy flagship.
Android Oreo has barely begun rolling out to Android devices and HMD Global (the company that owns Nokia) has revealed that they will update the current roster of Nokia smartphones to the next major version of Android.
Well, every phone except the Nokia 3310, obviously.
