3 Things The New Nokia 8 Can Do That Your Infinix or Tecno Phone Can’t Do

Ever since Nokia broke the shackles Microsoft had on them (all thanks to their new boss, HMD), they’ve been working tirelessly to make a come back into the market and most importantly to win the hearts of consumers.

You know earlier, they launched a remake of the iconic Nokia 3310 and still on the pursuit to reclaim their lost glory, they’ve launched some set of Android phones. (Talking about the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, Nokia 6 and now…. the Nokia 8)

So YEAH! Nokia now makes Android phone. Nokia has it’s first, second, third .. and more still  coming..

Even when some folks thought Nokia is only living on past glory and they might never ever return to using Nokia branded phones, the tech giant has decided to step up the game with hopes to take on and beat the all time rivals Apple and Samsung.

If you’re an Infinix or Tecno user, here’s what the new Nokia 8 can do that your phone can’t do.

1. Take Picture With The Front And Back Camera At The Same Time – #Bothie

The new Nokia 8 is the first mobile phone to feature this technology (Dual-Sight mode or as you may want to call it, Bothie)


The dual-sight mode is a new version of selfie which allows you use both front and back cameras at the same time (simultaneously). While using this feature to cover videos or take photos, your phone screen splits into 2.

With this, you can share both sides of a story. Sweeet!

2. Produce Quality Video And Sounds Like The Ones In American Movies

You know that feeling you get when you capture a very long video, probably a wedding or birthday party and then you decided to grab popcorn hoping to watch the video and then you begin to hear too many voices in the background?

Very horrible play back experience…

My brothers and sisters in tech, worry no more!

The Nokia 8 which has been designed to produce 4k videos also come with Ozo Spatial 360° audio (a technology used by Hollywood filmmakers and music producers).

For sure, this will put Hollywood technology in the palm of your hand.

3. High Quality Sounds From Its Out-Of-The Box Bluetooth Earphones

I suppose you’ve always wanted to save yourself the stress of carrying wires about? But so far so good, neither Tecno nor Infinix is helping matters with that kind of innovation.


The Nokia 8 comes with the Nokia Active Wireless Earphones. Though Nokia didn’t take out the ear phone jack like Apple did in the iPhone 7, they’ve gone a step into keeping our technological life less wired with a Bluetooth headset which comes along with the phone.

If you’ve been following MissTechy lately, you should remember the tutorial she posted on how she plays music with 2 Bluetooth speakers. She was able to do that with the new Bluetooth version 5.0.

Before Infinix users be looking at me like… (Lol…)
