Nokia is out to prove itself the top contender for the mid-range smartphone title with the release of its latest value operator the Nokia 8.1. Boasting imaging with Zeiss Optics, PureDisplay screen technology and accelerated performance, this smartphone brings premium features to the value segment. The Nokia 8.1 is available now, and its release may or may not have been overshadowed by last week’s abundance of Samsung Galaxy announcements.
The most lauded features of the Nokia 8.1 are the cameras, great for night and low light photography. The 12MP main camera is said to have an industry-leading 1/2.55” super sensitive sensor with large 1.4-micron pixels for precise light capture, delivering exceptionally detailed images. With Optical Image Stabilisation and superfast autofocus, this smartphone doesn’t let shaky hands ruin crisp images and videos.
The 20MP adaptive front camera is designed for ultimate night-time selfies, as it enhances how much light it can capture by combining four pixels into one super pixel. Users can also shoot movies like a pro with 4K video and high fidelity Nokia spatial audio stereo surround sound recording.
The 6.18-inch Full HD+ edge-to-edge display is perfect for games and videos and inside is a powerful battery that can last up to two days on a single charge.
At its core, a 6000-series aluminium frame exploits the elegant contrast between curved glass, polished metal and the sand-blasted finish. Diamond cut edges deliver a bold statement with the durability to withstand the knocks of everyday life.
The Nokia 8.1 is available now in Blue/Silver and Steel/Copper colours. It’s priced at $699 RRP and can be found at JB Hi-Fi across Australia.
