AnonD-653707, 17 Aug 2017Sony supplies the sensor. Sensors and lenses are two different things dude.Do you think i don't that -_- . Silly fanboys. SONY IS NOT THE ONLY ONE MAKING & PROVIDING SENSORS to everyone.
Zeiss make optical lenses (Glass) & digital sensor(to convert light into electrical pulses) both.
Engineers at the Nokia's Camera Division & Zeiss team, together they both developed the current camera module of the Nokia 8.
Though i would have liked a bigger sensor from Nokia.
1.12um seems small. Let's see how it performs in the real world.
Already criticizing or praising a phone that's not even released? It's like judging a book by it's cover. Pointless.
Not bad, cause nothing has gone from normal smartphone(like 3.5), but they added nothing aswell. Basically they sell 1+5 for the way higher price and that is dissapointing.
For the people, who complain about big size - you can buy Mi6, honor 9, p10 exactly for that reason.
But i still prefer Note FE/S8/1+5 over every other smartphone this year.
Ajax Francis , 16 Aug 2017Why not make the display Amoled? Little disappointed. Because Nokia wants the phone to serve you for a long time without worrying that the screen will burn in.
Anonymous, 16 Aug 2017Same mistake of LG...
A 2015 sensor made for midrange used inside flagship.
Low end Xperi... moreu guyz can really post bulls***t.
it's not any sony-made sensor, it's developed by the combined team of Nokia Camera division & Zeiss lens team.
IF i were one of the designer, I'd go for the "nostalgia" thing Nokia has been using for TRASH 3310 and equip the 8 with 41 MP from the 808 and updated it with the algorithm used in Lumia 1020, and add new features like OZO audio to complement the already excellent camera, NOT going the DUAL-CAMERA gimmick and use MID-RANGE camera sensors made in 2015 which BLATANTLY shows how OVERPRICED ALL Nokia phones are!
p.s even the aging Mi5s which below US$300 are using IMX378, the same sensors as Pixels!
Mkdc, 16 Aug 2017Very disappointed nokia flagship boasting the number "8". N82, N86, N8, 808 were all lightyear... moreyes, I agree. Zeiss lens will be good but the sensor size :((( was expecting a bit more sensor size from Nokia.
Rest everything is fine.
Ozo audio in mobile is a good innovation althhough, lets see how the camera performs.
AnonD-519805, 16 Aug 20171.12µm pixels? Which sensor? Doesn´t sound very impressive so far. Sony sensor from xperia x1ua
Sonu4678, 16 Aug 2017Are you really going to portray "dual sight" as a distinguishing feature? "Graphite shield" ... moreHow about the fact that it's cheaper than the competition. Op5 costs 500 Euros for the base model and it has fhd screen and a company with shoddy support history behind it. Not to mention the jelly effect and the other stuff that's Tumbling out of their box....
I want phone manufacturers to held design competition for those who always complain about design and let users vote the best possible design.
Chibo Gebu, 17 Aug 2017The King is Back!.. An amazing experience back to me, still remember the past time when Nokia ... moreN73 was the WORST phone made by Nokia since they uses LOW performance CPU & meager RAM, which resulted in LAGGING FEST of EVERY N73.
IF u want to boast about the old Nokia camera, think again.
They ONLY TWICE make great camera phone (808 pureview & Lumia 1020), the rest of Nokia phones camera are just mediocre with exceptional Zeiss lenses.
The ones who TRULY made great camera phones was Sony Ericsson. They made great camera with good details, introduces Xenon flash, introduced CCD sensors, and constantly introduced higher resolution camera annually. I once have SE Satio and compare it with my friend's n86 camera. The result? Satio utterly crushed n86, in all aspects.
Not to mention, SE has been giving the best battery type at that time, lithium polymer, which is more durable & long lasting that the ion version, which nokia persistently use to cut corners in production costs.
another great thing from SE is, they included a good quality headset out of the box, especially for the walkman phone series. the good build, combined with the esxellent sound quality made buying a SE phone unforgettable memories, as the Sony now are different from the once great SE which combine europe & asian taste when making every phone.
Only 3090mAh battery and f/2.0 aperture and 1.12µm size pixels? Not for $700+ lol
If I didn't know any better, I would've thought this thread was about politics - where we impose our views on others.
My $370,00 XA1 Ultra has better sensor.
Taking Z2 Play back to store and getting XA1U was a great choice.
I feel so glad and satisfied.
The King is Back!.. An amazing experience back to me, still remember the past time when Nokia is always by me.. Start with N90, N73, N93i.. I love Nokia and Zeiss is great too.. Can't wait the Nokia 8 to shine again and enter the Malaysian market! Nokia - Connecting People'
