HMD launched Nokia 8, the flagship Nokia Android Phone in an event in London yesterday. The smartphone boasts of many firsts in terms of innovations and stand-out features. While every onne expected a Zeiss-branded rear camera on the back, HMD has taken fans by surprise by also packing a front camera with Zeiss optics on Nokia 8.
This Zeiss -branded front camera has 13MP resolution similar to the rear camera and can shoot videos in 4K. This capability is not yet available on many flagships. If quality of Zeiss-branded Nokia cameras on past flagships is any indication, Nokia 8 front camera may set a standard in terms of quality of selfie capture. It also has a selfie flash and F/2.0 aperture making even low-light capture more powerful.
Coming to the new and innovative Bothie aka Dual-Sight feature it is already getting some attention from Tech media. This feature allows simultaneous capture and split-screen display of images from both rear and front cameras. Here is one example of Bothie posted on Twitter by HMD CPO Juho.
