Nokia 8 Officially Launched in Pakistan

HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, has announced the launch of its flagship smartphone – Nokia 8 – in Pakistan.

Nokia 8 is a high-end phone designed with content creators in mind. It brings three world-firsts to Android smartphones, including a debut collaboration with ZEISS optics.

With performance and pure Android at its heart, as well as an aluminium unibody design, Nokia 8 represents all the hallmarks of a true flagship Nokia smartphone.

Kamran Khan, Country Head of Pakistan, HMD Global said:

“The Nokia 8 promises an innovative and unique experience to further inspire the Pakistan content creators.”

Be Less Selfie, Be More Bothie

Nokia 8 introduces a Dual-Sight video to be live streamed natively and in real-time to social feeds such as Facebook and YouTube. Dual-Sight simultaneously harnesses both the front and rear cameras in a split screen visual for both photos and videos. No other smartphone maker has such a feature in their portfolio.

With just one touch, this live stream capability gives an immersive experience for those who love to create and share special memories. The cameras have been co-developed with ZEISS optics for an optimum all round experience. Fans can also enjoy unlimited photo and video uploads to Google Photos.

High Quality Sound with OZO Audio

Nokia 8 is also the first smartphone to feature OZO Audio, placing exclusive Hollywood technology in the palm of your hands. OZO spatial 360° audio brings a fully immersive audio experience to your 4K videos. Cutting-edge 360° audio capture ensures the playback lets you truly relive the moment so your memories never fade.

Innovation and Precision Engineering

Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, Nokia 8 doesn’t compromise on performance.

Nokia 8 has been designed from the ground up with the consumers in mind. This requires it to be as meticulously designed on the inside as it is on the outside. To keep your phone working faster for longer, the design, innovation and engineering teams worked hand-in-hand to deliver the best possible performance and looks.

The result is a full-length graphite shielded copper cooling pipe that dissipates the heat generated by the high performing systems across the full length and breadth of the handset. The Nokia 8 runs cooler in even the most demanding situations.

Nokia 8 is Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 compatible, meaning when your battery is running low you can get back to recording your important moments sooner.

4.6mm thin at the edge and just 7.3mm slim on average, Nokia 8’s seamless unibody is precision milled from a single block of 6000 series aluminium and its pure design has been refined through a 40-stage process of machining, anodizing and polishing. Select models feature a high-gloss mirror finish that has taken over 20 hours to complete to achieve a flawless look.

Ammar Ahmed, Head of Marketing, Pakistan, HMD Global added:


People are inspired by the content they consume and are looking for new ways to create their own. It’s these people who have inspired us to craft a flagship smartphone which perfectly balances premium design, an outstanding experience and powerful performance.


Nokia 8 now offers fans a pure and secure version of Android 8.0 Oreo with no skins and no changes in the user interface with additional Nokia-baked features to make content creation and sharing even more fun.

  • Bil

  • Aslam Qureshi

    Back camera is not upto the mark. This phones in the world sells for usd 450.00 n prices going down because of camera. Waiting for nokia/hmd to correct prices accordingly to sale this phone. Sincere advise.

  • Adnan

    Mate 10 Lite is the best option

    • faithful

      Best options are s8 or s8 plus

      • Aslam Qureshi

        If u dont care much about camera, mate 10 light best mobile in price segment. Huawei quality is equal to samsung. Price and software are better.

        • Ye Bat Mera Bhai Huawei Wala :
          Ye Samsung Wale Nahi Samjhe Ge :

  • Hassaan saleem

    The phone is good but the price is very high. The 4 GB ram type should not be greater than 25000. I really hope that the Nokia company guys would understand.

    • tazzix

      Which other phone with Snapdragon 835 and 2560×1440 screen is available in this price range? Let alone 25000. I see it’s specs better than OnePlus 5, and decently priced in my opinion, it would surely drop to 50-54k in a month or two.

      • Aslam Qureshi

        With good camera i will buy it for 50-54 even at 60000 becaz of specs and hardware used. But it will be rejected becaz of camera complains. Either they wl stop sale or wl sell it for 40-45000. For non camera lovers it wl b good buy at 40-45000.00.
        Nokia still not in full flow, gathering strength.

  • Great specs but no innovation. Ugly design.

    • Aslam Qureshi

      The design is not modern but sort a practicle one. Nokia launched it some time back in other countries. Ofcourse also very late aftr device announcement. Here it is coming very late n betwn this period other fast companies introduced latest trend. Mobile is good. Camera, design will not be papular. Here comes price factor.
      They are offring other Nokia phones also at high prices. They think they are brand. There is difference in a established brand and a reestablishing brand. They will understand it and learn.
