HMD Global, unveiled the Nokia 8 on Wednesday, hoping to cash in on rising consumer demand for high-quality audio and video features.
The Android device is due to be out in September and will compete against Apple`s highly anticipated 10th anniversary iPhone and Samsung`s Galaxy Note 8 which is set to hit the market next week.
With a suggested price tag of around 599 euros ($703), Nokia 8 sports a dual-sight video feature which enables simultaneous live-streaming on social media networks from both front and rear cameras on a split screen. It has licensed lens technology from camera maker Zeiss.
Nokia 8 features a 13 MP dual image-fusion rear camera with both colour and monochrome sensors, plus a wide-angle 13 MP phase detection auto-focus front camera. Both front and rear cameras are equipped with ZEISS optics
It is the most high-end phone so far from HMD, which was set up late last year and made a splash in May when it revived Nokia`s classic 3310 feature handset in new brightly coloured versions.
