Nokia 8 Available in Singapore from 14th October

The first Nokia Android Phone, the Nokia 8, will be here in Singapore from 14th October 2017. Clad in aluminum, it collaborates with ZEISS optics for the cameras and it features the Nokia OZO Audio.

The Nokia 8 has an RRP of S$769 and in my opinion, it is not so bad. Here are the authorized retailers.
