The Nokia 8 is priced at approximately $700 and is expected to compete with Apple (AAPL) and Samsung (SSNLF) in the premium smartphone segment. Nokia 8 comes with a lens technology licensed from camera maker Zeiss. This technology enables dual-sight video, through which customers can live-stream videos using the front and rear end camera, resulting in a simultaneous split screen.

Nokia 8 also bears an audio OZO spatial 360 technology, and the phone is expected to launch in major markets by October 2017.

Competition from Apple and Samsung

Nokia will compete with market leaders like Samsung and Apple. Chinese manufacturers including Huawei, Oppo, and Vivo have also been gaining market share in emerging markets over the past few quarters.
