Nokia 8 is also a device that is expected to be priced under Rs 40,000 in India. One of the major USP of the device is the dual-camera setup at the back of the Nokia 8. The modules come with optical image stabilisation and also a laser range finder to make the device focus fast on moving objects. The dual-cameras and the front camera on the Nokia 8 also use Zeiss optics. The dual-camera setup comes with regular things link a Bokeh effect and an effective resolution of 13-megapixel for an image with an aspect ratio of 4:3. The camera is also capable of shooting 4K videos. What’s new on the Nokia 8’s dual-camera setup is a Dual-Sight camera mode. What it does is that it splits the display into two and give you frames for both the rear and the front camera. This makes the person who’s capturing an image or a video also participate in capturing memories. Another interesting thing is that you can also live stream your video recording on Facebook as well as on YouTube right from the camera app. This is what guys at HMD say is the birth of Bothie. The camera is quite capable in terms of capturing images and recording videos. Also the front camera on the Nokia 8 also sports the same module that’s on the primary camera. This ensures selfies that are as crisp and detailed as images that are captured from the rear camera of this device.
