Few brands can muster the nostalgia that Nokia has with many phone users in the pre-Facebook age often buying their first 3310s and 3210s as their first ever handset. Like a phoenix, Nokia has made quite a comeback via HMD Global with an array of new phones spearheaded by their new Nokia 8 which is now going for a special discount of RM1,988.
Since its launch last year the Nokia 8 retailed for RM2,299. From now till 28 February 2018, you can acquire the Nokia 8 at a discount of RM1,988 and Nokia is also throwing in a free mystery gift pack worth RM200 in the bargain to sweeten the pot.
The Nokia 8 brings a lot to the table as it’s still one of the most affordable phones running a Snapdragon 835 chipset, which is Qualcomm’s flagship SoC for 2017. Paired with this is a spill-resistant machined aluminium casing, 4GB RAM, a 5.3-inch 2,560 x 1,440 pixel resolution display and 64GB of expandable storage. Of note to Android purists is that it gets regular OS updates and runs Android Oreo OS.
The rear sports a dual 13-MP camera array while the front has a 13-MP selfie snapper. Of note is Nokia’s ‘Bothie’ mode while simultaneously feeds video from the front and rear camera, combining both into a single live video feed for Facebook live. The offer is good nationwide in Malaysia. For more details on participating stores swing by https://www.nokia.com/en_my/phones/store-locator
