MAKES AN IM­PRES­SION

Business Today - - THE HUB - BY NIDHI SIN­GAL

Nokia has given us some great cam­era phones in the past, but the Nokia 8 takes it to the next level. It is the com­pany’s first dual cam­era phone with Carl Zeiss op­tics – pack­ing in two 13-MP cam­eras with a com­bi­na­tion of RGB and mono­chrome sen­sors for cap­tur­ing depth im­ages. There is an op­tion to shoot pic­tures in black-and­white and colour, us­ing reg­u­lar mode or depth ef­fect. While the im­ages shot on the Nokia 8 were im­pres­sive, with

The phone has a new ‘ bothie’ fea­ture that al­lows one to cap­ture im­ages from the front and rear cam­era si­mul­ta­ne­ously. Pho­tos cap­tured us­ing this tech­nique look like two im­ages have been stitched to­gether. How­ever, this trick works well for shoot­ing videos as two dif­fer­ent re­ac­tions can be cap­tured at the same time. The Nokia 8, crafted from 6000-se­ries alu­minium, is com­pact and com­fort­able to hold. The 5.3-inch 2k dis­play, pro­tected by Cor­ing Go­rilla Glass 5, of­fers great colours. It works smoothly while launch­ing VR apps or load­ing graphic-heavy games, but does heat up a lit­tle. It is pow­ered by Snap­dragon 835 pro­ces­sor paired with 4 GB of RAM. The Nokia 8 runs on stock Android; there is no bloat­ware. Of the 64 GB in­ter­nal stor­age, close to 49 GB is ac­ces­si­ble. The 3,090 mAh bat­tery lasts a day eas­ily. Given its top-of-the-line specs, the Nokia 8 is a pretty good buy at 36,999.
