Supposedly interesting is also from the audio area to announce. The new phone is equipped with Nokia OZO audio, so technology and software, which was originally heard in the Ozo camera. Thus, 4K videos can be recorded with 360 ° sound. A total of three microphones are available for this purpose. In addition, there are algorithms that are designed to enhance the sound of the phone, but at the same time ensure that this 360 ° sound is processed in such a way that the soundtrack also sounds good on other devices.
When focusing on 4K videos and the combination of three cameras for splitscreen livestreaming, it is important that the processor is well cooled. In the Nokia 8, this is to ensure a graphite-sheathed cooling cable made of copper, which runs on the inside over the entire housing length. The Nokia 8 weighs 160 grams.
