Pimp my phone: There’s a new Nokia 8 variant with 6 GB RAM

They’ve only just celebrated their comeback and now they’re back with even more: The Nokia 8 now features even more performance and storage capacity. We’re rewarding our first 200 buyers with a free soft touch cover.

Our editor Luca Fontana likes the Nokia 8. «This smartphone doesn’t have any revolutionary features, but the ones it has are damn good and damn fast», is his verdict. If you’re interested in more details, read his review (in German). Nokia has now released the power version. It has no name, so our mobile editors affectionately call it «diesel version» (because it’s fast and furious). This version looks just like its younger sibling, but features 6 instead of 4 GB RAM and 127 instead of 64 GB storage.

Comeback des Jahres – Was das Nokia 8 wirklich taugt

«I rarely get the chance to do such a comparison», Luca states. The diesel version is in a box on his desk, waiting to be tested. «The Nokia 8 and the diesel Nokia 8 are identical. The only difference between the two is their storage capacity and processing power. That’s what makes this test so special». In the smartphone scene, 6 GB phones are considered the answer to everything. «I can’t wait to see if the hardware improvements really make a difference in everyday life», Luca says with a smile on his face, «there’s no other phone on the market right now which is more suitable to test this”, he adds. Luca unwraps the phone and starts setting it up.

The colour «Polished Blue» is exclusive to the Nokia 8 diesel version.

What else can it do?

The phone plays the sound of the 1990s Nokia jingle and immediately spreads a sense of nostalgia. While the Nokia 8 is performing the set-up, Luca goes through the specs:

  • The Nokia 8 has a bright 5.3” 2K polarised display, protected by sculpted Corning Gorilla Glass 5 (500 ppi). It automatically adjusts to the light conditions.
  • Its 3090mAh battery is supported by a Snapdragon 835 processor. Quick Charge 3.0 makes sure the battery is charged from 0% to 100% within short time.
  • The front and rear camera are both equipped with ZEISS optics and can be used simultaneously with Dual-Sight mode. The Bothie (from «Selfie») is born; you can take a picture of yourself and the person opposite you at the same time. In addition, the Nokia 8 is the first smartphone featuring OZO spatial 360° audio.
  • This phone runs on Android Nougat 7.1.1 OS. According to Nokia, the update to Android 8 Oreo is scheduled to take place in the coming weeks.
  • The Nokia 8 is only available in one colour, but this colour is exclusive to this model: Polished Blue. In the meantime, the phone is installing the last few apps. The set-up doesn’t take long and Luca is used to switching phones. «I only just switched from iOS to Android for the Nokia 8 review I wrote. I’m not going to spend another morning trying to synchronise my calendar via cloud», he adds. Now, the smartphone is up and running. Luca makes a weird noise; I think it’s the sound of satisfaction, but he has a cold, so it sounds more like an elephant snorting.

He then puts the phone in his pocket and leaves for a coffee break. Let the test begin.

The Nokia 8 diesel version is ready to be put to the test.

Cool, eine Diesel-Edition. Hatte noch nie ein Handy mit Verbrennungsmotor. Hat es einen Partikelfilter? CO2 Ausstoss /h telefonieren? Verbrauch auf 100 Minuten? Und gibt es das auch mit Schummelsoftware? :)

Ich gehe mal davon aus, dass die zweite SIM mindestens auch auf 3G (UMTS) sendet, oder?

Wikipedia:

"HMD is made up of former Nokia executives.The CEO was Arto Nummela, a Nokia veteran for 17 years, until July 2017 when President Florian Seiche took over as acting CEO. It is headquartered in Espoo, opposite Nokia's head office. Manufacturing is outsourced to a division of Foxconn."

den wichtigsten Satz vergessen:

Nokia has no investment in HMD but remains a partner, setting mandatory requirements and providing patents and technologies, in return of royalty payments.[

Falsch. Der Hersteller ist HMDglobal. Und nicht Nokia. Der ursprüngliche Nokia Konzern hat mit diesem Handy nichts mehr zu tun.

Ich glaube nicht, dass alle damaligen Nokia-Mitarbeiter aus der europäischen Fabrik nach China ausgewandert sind.

Versteht mich nicht falsch... Hergestellt werden die Phones wahrscheinlich bei Foxconn in China, wie gehfühlt 90% aller Smartphones. Designt und Engineered wurden sie bei HMDglobal, welche glaubs sogar in Europa zuhause sind. Wer weis da genaueres?

China produziert soviel Ware. Das Design besteht für westliche "Hersteller" meist nur noch darin, aus einem Katalog von fertigen Einzelteilen (Gehäuse, CPU, Kamera) die gewünschten rauszupicken und vielleicht noch einen kleinen Änderungswunsch anzubringen. Kann mir nicht vorstellen, dass Nokia nach neuem forscht und die Anfertigung von Grund auf in Auftrag gibt.

1. Auftragshersteller mit Nokia-Label.
2. Slot 2 ist Standard. Slot 3 Micro SD muss man suchen gehen.
3. Design - das Form Follows function. Und das Display gibt nun mal die Gehäuseform vor. Wenigstens ist der Fingerabdrucksensor vorn.

Nachtrag: 128 GB als Standardausstattung - das ist schon innovativ. Für mich Speicherjunkie sollte das bei den heutigen Speicherpreisen Standard sein.

1. Es ist nach vor ein Nokia VON Nokia! Es wurde von Nokiamitarbeiter entworfen, wird in ehemaligen Nokiafabriken die nun Foxconn gehören gefertigt und von Nokiamitarbeiter in Europa geprüft. Also alles wie damals ausser das Foxconn auch was daran verdient.
