Nokia 7 vs Nokia 8

The new Nokia 7 was introduced this october in China by HMD Global. The glass and aluminum clad device carries a 5.2-inch LCD display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 (FHD). Under the hood you’ll find the Snapdragon 630 chipset, which comes with an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 508 GPU. One version comes with 4GB of RAM (priced at ¥2,499, which is about the equivalent of $377 USD), and a second variant features 6GB of RAM (priced at ¥2,699, which converts into $407 USD based on current exchange rates). Both models are equipped with 64GB of expandable native storage.

In the back of the phone is a 16MP camera with an aperture of f/1.8. A 5MP front-facing camera snaps selfies and video chats, and the Dual-Sight feature (seen on the Nokia 8) allows users to take pictures and videos using both the back and front camera simultaneously. Nokia calls these dual-sided pictures and videos “Bothies.” We will have to see whether that name catches on.

Getting the lights on is a 3000mAh battery, and yes Virginia, there is a 3.5mm earphone jack on board. While the Nokia 7 is pre-installed with Android Nougat, HMD says that the device will be upgraded to Android 8.0 Oreo.

This new Nokia 7 phone will launch in China on October 24th. As for now, it will be exclusive to the Chinese market.

Nokia 8
The Nokia 8 comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835, 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory. The screen measures 5.3-inches with 1440×2560 pixels resolution. For the purpose of taking pictures, the Nokia 8 comes with 3 cameras all of them 13-megapixels. Two on the back (one of which shoots monochrome images) and one on the front. The Gloss Blue color has beefier 128GB of storage.

the front camera on this phone is very powerful. It is one of very few to come with auto-focusing, and this will make your beloved self pop more on images and be in sharper focus. The detail from this 13-megapixel camera should be a level above pretty much every other front camera out there, so selfie takers mark September 6th in your calendars: that’s when the new Nokia 8 will go on sale in Europe (unfortunately, it will not be available in the US initially).
