Nokia 8: Questions and Answers

Hi all, 

we already have a thread about what do we think about Nokia 8 (in product launches forum), but there are still some features that weren't explained enough or even mentioned on, for example, the official product page. So I imagined this to be like a Q&A for Nokia 8 where we could post some easy-answerable questions and maybe someone from Nokia Mobile could respond and clarify the situation.

To begin with, I have two questions:

1. Does Nokia Mobile plan to make a whitepaper about Nokia 8's camera? Whitepapers have been interesting to read with the 808, 920, 1020, 1520 and so on, and it would be a nice way to explain the Technology used to users and the media.

2. What kind of loudspeaker does the Nokia 8 have? I really would like to know more about it, because the official product page does not mention it. Is it the same dual-speaker with the smart amplifier as on the 6, or something else?

Thanks in advance to all Nokia Mobile members that will take time to answer some (or all) of the questions here. :)

    Also as seen on some websites does the shiny polished blue version come with 6GB 128GB?

     A couple of questions/requests about camera:

    • Do you have any plane about offering the old Lumia UI for the manual settings? (pro or whatsoever)
    • Do you have any plane to let users to choose to shot in RAW format? this is really a MUST imho. If so, you also should consider to give the RAW format even if shooting with B/W sensor alone, vevn inf sadly there is no OIS on this

    Kiitos for attention :D

    in accordance to media, the version of nokia 8 with 6GB ram y 128GB storage is shinny blue for the american market as well as china.  the shinny version for the rest of the world would only be different in having 128GB instead of 64GB but 4GB will remain.

     I read today that the 128GB memory / 6GB RAM version will be available in November. It will be the "polished blue" version.

    I don't like that colour so much as I would like to - I was hoping it would look be brighter, like what I see if I search for Nokia in google images.

    So, because polished blue is disappointing, I hope it will also be available in copper! :)

     I agree about the whitepapers, I'd also like to see a return of these.

    When will there be an update to the camera firmware or software? Have been quite disappointed with the sharpness and details from the Nokia 8. Significantly behind the Lumia 950 and not even as sharp as the Galaxy S7 Edge. And these are not new phones.

     Why on earth is the shiny blue version different in RAM quantity on the American market? 4Gb is not much, would appreciate 6Gb as the americans get!

    I don't understand the business idea of not telling when to expect the #copper version. It's not only competing against other Nokia products. Don't make the same mistakes as "the old Nokia"!

     I read that the 6GB polished blue version was also available in Finland, so it's not only North America.

    However, I agree with your point - I want a copper version with 6GB RAM... but I don't think Nokia will ever make one! I don't really understand why not, after all it's just the same internals with a different cover which they already have.

    But since we don't even know when the 4GB copper version will be available then a 6GB version really is a pipe dream.

    Hey Nokia,

    Couple of questions from my side (quick intro, im a huge fan of Nokia mobile from starting.. and i am still using Nokia x2-02 and lumia 925.. and waited for much time to see nokia to come back with android).


    1. Nokia 8 in India is of variant 4GB RAM and 64GB internal HDD, price is around $530. it is highly expensive for people with these technical features other than camera and sound technologies included.

    -- are you planning to give Nokia best quality and technical features for the prices of competitive products? (like One Plus 5 - which gives far better RAM and internal HDD with great features).

    2. Why only in US and China 6GB RAM variants are released?

    -- I am waiting to buy Nokia 8 because of price for which those technical features are coming is not a good choice in my view.. but i still wait for right phone from Nokia to come and unleash in India.

    Thank you Nokia,

    Sreekar J

    Waiting for your reply.

  • The Nokia 8 has a single loudspeaker - the Nokia 6's stereo setup didn't make the cut. The lone driver can pump out a lot of decibels if the tune is right and it scored an Excellent rating in our three-pronged test. It kept its sound distortion-free even at max volume, too.

    The Nokia 8 doesn't have a notification LED anywhere on the planet, seriously it isn't an issue once you get used to it.
