Nokia 8 Spec
Way back Nokia used to be a household name across Africa and other continents, the company was at the top of its game in the early days of the mobile phone industry.

The new Nokia 8 is the successor of Nokia 6, the supposed high-end device does not offer anything new compared to its competition, the device shares lots of similarities with its predecessor, some features like the primary camera was sliced down, this sort of decision makes the Nokia 6 a better option in some Specs, despite the inconsistency in some features the Nokia 8 offers other great features, like its simultaneous camera function, the latest Android 8.0 Oreo, and the best Qualcomm Snapdragon technology which is designed to deliver long battery life.
