Nokia finally has a flagship Android phone and it's beautiful

"We have a big job to become relevant and stay relevant", HMD president Florian Seiche told us, but it had a huge advantage over much of the competition in a saturated, cut-throat marketplace. Again the US price may be around USD 699.

"We know that fans are creating and sharing live content more than ever before, with millions of photos and videos shared every minute on social media". Third-party manufacturers build the phones for HMD using the Nokia nameplate. Logically speaking, this is the only thing missing from Nokia's arsenal as of now (considering that they are already working on launching the Nokia 2). There's the Samsung Galaxy S8 to contend with - which has just dropped below £600 - and the Google Pixel range starts at £600, too.

The Nokia 6 has the largest display size of 5.5 inches, which is what many people prefer these days. While Samsung is marketing the 18.5:9 display as Infinity display, the 18:9 display on the LG G6 is called as FullVision display.

On Wednesday, HMD Global unveiled the Nokia 8, the highly anticipated flagship smartphone with interesting features.

At last, Nokia has a true flagship Android phone to get excited about. In the offscreen test, the Nokia 8 once more proved itself more or less equal to its rivals. It's a long time since the Nokia brand alone was enough to sell phones.

At the MWC 2017, HMD Global launched three Nokia branded smartphones running on Android.

Front and centre, of course, is the screen. One is a color sensor with OIS with the other being mono, complemented by dual tone flash as well. Furthermore, the fingerprint sensor is expected to be pushed to the rear panel, making way for a larger display with minimalistic bezels on all sides. Yes, it actually features "a polished aluminium body".

I took the Nokia 8's camera for spin - take a look through at the gallery to see how it performs.

The phone features Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip, offers pure, secure and updated Android experience and is Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 compatible for 3,090 mAh battery. That's a reliable recipe for high-end performance, no question about it.

As for gaming performance, it isn't quite the same story.

The Nokia 8 comes with a 5.3-inch Quad HD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440.

Nokia 8 also comes with an innovative heat management solution - a full-length graphite shielded copper cooling pipe dissipates heat across the full length and breadth of the smartphone. Both deliver in the design department though. The Nokia 8 works beautifully with the Nokia Active Wireless Headset - a lightweight, water, sweat, and dust proof premium headset.
