Nokia 8, first impressions: power and defenses Zeiss brand under a family wrap

 

Although the expected return of Nokia came earlier this year, it was not until last August 16 when Nokia finally announced its first high-end mobile , the missing piece to complete its discreet but interesting catalog. We talk, of course, of the Nokia 8 .

The Nokia 8 comes with standard features such as the 2K display, the Snapdragon 835 processor or its dual camera, three key pillars to measure yourself with the most competitive handsets . Taking advantage of the framework of the fair IFA of Berlin, HMD has taken to walk its new flagship and we have had occasion to test it during several hours. These are our first impressions of Nokia 8.

‘Classic’ design with great attention to detail

As in many other consumer sectors, fashions rule, and today the fashion in design within the world of mobile phones is to adjust the screen to the edge. At the moment Nokia has not entered this race and the Nokia 8 has quite prominent upper and lower frames , but can not be blamed for having excessive size or weight, in fact feels comfortable and is not complicated to handle with one hand.

 

What does it mean that the LG V30 has an f / 1.6 aperture on its rear camera

 

Yesterday LG put the rest to try to conquer the market of high ranges. He did it during the IFA Berlin, although the correct thing would be to say that he did it before its opening, because the fair opens the doors to the public today 1 of September. Climbing to a stage at the Messe Berlin, LG deployed and boasted of everything that their LG V30 is capable of. The first really international V mobile and one of the strongest candidates to be the mobile this year .

In the presentation there was time to talk about all the strengths of the device. From its huge P-OLED screen with hardly any frames, an evolution with technology change over the LG G6 months ago, and also the incorporation of Qualcomm’s latest high-end chip. But much of the protagonism was taken by his double camera and there was a fact that did not go unnoticed: the opening of his main lens.

The biggest opening achieved in the mobile

It was not trivial to give as much hype to seemingly as insignificant data as his main lens had an aperture f / 1.6, a number marks a record right now as the first mobile lens to achieve such a wide aperture . Those closest to it, the f / 1.7 that Samsung starts to mount in its midrange, the same that already uses OnePlus or HTC. E Even Vivo and Oppo.

The aperture of a lens in optics, so it applies the same as traditional cameras to mobile phones, reflects the aperture diameter of the lens itself with respect to the focal length and is also a number inversely proportional to that aperture, because it is written in a fraction. That means that a smaller one reflects a greater aperture. Greater opening, more light.

 

The advance in the manufacture of some components suggests that the Galaxy S9 will arrive in January

 

With the still-warm body of a new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and official confirmation of the filing date of the new Apple phone, the iPhone 8 , we find a new news that involves another flagger as a flagship .

We talk about the Samsung Galaxy S9 from which now come siren songs that point to a fairly considerable advance for its filing date. The rumors, which point to the month of January as possible departure date for the new flagship, are based on the manufacture of one of the components of the device to take shape.

Galaxy S9 in January?

As we say, the basis of this latest rumor lies in the hardware elements of the future phone, specifically on the screen. And is that according to the information, Samsung could start receiving the OLED panels for their Samsung Galaxy S9 this same month of November.

We would be talking about two months before what happened with the Samsung Galaxy S8 , and according to calculations, once the screens are ready, they usually spend around two or three months until they are sent to the assembly chain, reason why which rumor marks January as the filing date for the Galaxy S9 instead of March.
