HMD today announced their most awaited flagship under the Nokia branding, and it’s the highly anticipated Nokia 8, which is company’s high-end smart phone ever to compete with the likes of Galaxy S8, iPhone 7, Moto Z2 Force and LG G6. The flagship’s earlier leaked rumors came out to be true, and the device comes with all the latest and greatest specs like all other flagships. Pricing is also not much heavy on the wallet, as the device comes with a price tag of  $599.

The design looks familiar to the likes of Nokia 6 but its made from more premium materials such as glass and polished metal, which looks much more refined. On the front, we have a 5.3-inch Quad HD IPS LCD, with thick bezels at the top and bottom. The bottom bezel houses a rectangular finger print scanner, with two backlit capacitive navigation buttons. While the top houses a 13 mega pixel wide angle camera and the good old Nokia branding.
