Based on everything I've read so far about the Nokia 8, it's not the flagship I expected. No wireless charging, splash only water resistance and a few others not up to current flagship standards. I believe there will be a '9' in the future truly displaying Nokia of old premium pricing.

Pitty Nokia designed a phone for narcissists instead of going back to their roots and developing a superb business phone, AKA, the 9000 Series Communicator, but based on Android. IE, a large stylus equipped phone with a slide out QWERTY keyboard. Like a Galaxy Note and a Moto Droid (keyboard version) in one.
The Blackberry keyone keyboard is too small.
The main camera use IMX 258 sensors for both cameras, a little disappoint for this price range and this year :(
Again with binaural audio, even if it recorded in 360°x 360° direction, and it don't based in whats writen, it wouldn't be binaural. Binaural means to hear such sound in-ear, its impossible to simulate for now. As it was confused with stereo before, so its now with 3D stereo. If its binaural recording, sony got earphones for XZP for that function. Kind of misuse of words here.
kodekn, 17 Aug 2017Really? I hope you are correct.Yup just like gameboy advance without the backlight..
Here you can find always on display in action on Asha 501 with LCD screen

Nokia are the pioneers of Always on display since way back! And that why I will keep on telling people Nokia is the father of innovations as others just always follow behind.
My only draw back with this nokia 8 is that it does NOT have FM Radio.Too bad.
Anonymous, 17 Aug 2017Flagship just because sd835 & dual cam lile others
The rest just nothing special, excep n... moreNope.
The dual cams use high quality zeiss lens.. Other phones use cheap lens
The front cam has autofocus and zeiss lens.. Other phones don't even have autofocus let alone quality lens
The 3 mics are capable of OZO surround audio recording.. Other phones such as the iPhone only supports mono audio recording
This is the only phone capable of recording/streaming 2 4k cameras at once whilst keeping the SD835 cool.. Other flagships can only record 4k for 5 minutes before overheating
These qualities qualifies the Nokia 8 as a proper flagship and more

GSM Arena: where are you getting the information that the phone has Always On display? I assume it will be active ONLY when the phone is attached to a charger? Using Always On in a non-AMOLED phone will drain the battery fast.
So,a proper comeback from Nokia.But not in the US,for now.I guess it's because it's made of aloomeenum...:)
So in the last page it says ~600$. I wonder how much this varies from country to country and how much it might cost in Europe...
It seems very similar to HTC U11, does anyone remember how much did that one cost at launch? Could the new Nokia be a bit cheaper?
