After launching three budget and mid-range smartphones, HMD Global finally launched the long anticipated, Nokia 8, the company’s first flagship smartphone in India.The Nokia 8 is company’s first smartphone to sport imaging setup from Zeiss as well as audio experience by OZO Audio. OZO Audio is found in 360-degree VR cameras used in Hollywood, and is a first for mobile. It features multiple microphones to capture high dynamic range and record binaural audio, which gives the videos high-fidelity stereo sound.

It packs in a dual 13 MP rear camera setup that combines a color and monochrome sensor, shots from which are combined into a single shot with greater contrast. The front 13 MP front camera includes auto-focus and actually utilizes the same camera module as the rear configuration. There’s also the first ever ‘Dual-sight Live’ feature that allows you to simultaneously shoot/record/broadcast from front and rear cameras, a feature that the company calls ‘Bothie’.
