IMX 258 on a 2017 NOKIA flagship.....????
Wow. Perfection. Quality and looks.
Actually its hard between the 8 and 9. the 9 looks stunning but i find myself torn between the 8 with the fingerprint sensor at front.. Good to hold and easy. I got use to it with HTC and love it but with the 9 it is in an easy place at least. what if it was a skinny one on the front. anyway fantastic. even more reason for me to not even look at an apple.
Carol, 18 Sep 2017Actually i do not think people hate it cause of that. It is just ugly. I happen to like weird ... moreI used iPhone 4, 6s and 7 and each time I felt like throwing them on ground. I just hate ios.
I hope that they change the sensors of the cameras but if they keep the same ridiculously small sensor in the cameras is a no no. It does not matter if they put Zeiss lenses or the ones from the grandmother's glasses. It wouldn't improve anything like in the Nokia 8 only marketing and an excuse to charge more money. Put a better sensor, regular but well structured lenses and see a real improvement with less cost!!!
Unless it is dual sim with multi LTE bands it won't be worth buying. Buy the S8 or the S8+ or the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2. These phones give you everything albeit for some slightly higher initial costs.
DealBreaker, 18 Sep 2017I want Qi Wireless charging support in it!!You hear me HMD Global??!Come on now this is Nokia 2.0 not an orchard in sight
I don't know if they think i would not know
FIRST good thing the Nokia 8 has posted killer benchmarks to match its killer specs
but this is where Nokia are taking the Apple 0.2 inches is 5.08 MM that is the difference and a 25% hike from 500 EUR Nokia 8 to 750 EUR Nokia 8
All you have to do is look at Apple http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=8858&idPhone2=8131&idPhone3=8065
the motto is tweak a little charge a lot yeah right

I'm glad they're keeping the fingerprint reader. I just hope it's an ergonomic, easy to reach design.
For the 9 months back to the business NOKIA 9 looks good for me.Stereo speakers is must ,wireless charger.Hope better camera then NOKIA 8 and all high and futures.
Anonymous, 18 Sep 2017Fingerprint reader on the back. Fail by Nokia.If the bezel is that small, there is no other choice but the back (or take the iPhone route and remove it altogether).
Anonymous, 18 Sep 2017Of course not a camera beast. We thought we could count on your return...The problem is snapdragon 835 that does not support much bigger douple cameras. Nokia and other brands needs 845 or something better for super lenses.
But who knows, maybe next year...
Otherwice this seems very nice phone!
gam30to, 18 Sep 2017that's why i actually like the iphone X design.. i know alot of people hate the cut out.. it a... moreActually i do not think people hate it cause of that. It is just ugly. I happen to like weird phones, but that one looks like a failed kinder toy. Is just unbearable to watch. And well, the system is unbearable to use.
Why they waste the space below the screen, when they move FPR on the back? At least they can put stereo front speaker.
And personally don't like FPR on the back.
rich watarious, 18 Sep 2017Yea that is the order of the day bezel-less phones. I was pushing for bezel-less phones Some 4... moreLook up for Bluboo, Leagoo, umidigi, vkworld, elephone and maze.
They all have bezel only in bottom of the device with fingerprint scanner button in the bezel.
And all phones are under $300. Maze alpha 6GB RAM and 64GB ROM witth SD625 is something 170 euro. And hey all are Xiaomi Mi Mix copycats.
LostInTheSorrow, 18 Sep 2017Phrase "bezel-less" have been recently used as a curse word for anything new in phone market.dafak means bezel-less screen in these days ? From my understanding the screen should not have bezel to be bezel-less. Nokia 9 have bezel on top and bottom and they say it's bezel-less. If screen sides dont have bezel 1-2mm black line then you already can call it bezel-less ?
IMX258? They don´t realize what Nokia was all about. I would buy Nokia again but I want a big image sensor, great lenses and maybe some other features like xenon flash.
If this gets SD845, this is totally gonna be my next phone.
But, imo, they should revive the Xpress Music series with some Quad-DACs.
Love the Community, 18 Sep 2017Fingerprint reader beside the camera, fail by Samsung. Fingerprint reader not on the logo, fai... moreNot really. It's more of a "we're not really copying Apple, see, our fingerprint reader is on the BACK!"
The same thing happened 23 years ago when Windows 95 took the start menu and put it at the BOTTOM of the screen instead of the top like the Apple menu.
