Nokia's long-awaited Android flagship is now official, and there's a lot to like. The phone is powered by the Snapdragon 835 and features 4GB of RAM, along with 64GB of storage and a microSD slot. There are two Zeiss-tuned 13MP cameras at the back — a primary RGB shooter augmented by a secondary monochrome sensor and a 13MP camera up front that can shoot 4K video.
The phone also has a 5.3-inch QHD display, a 3090mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0, USB 3.1 Gen1 connectivity, a headphone jack, OZO Audio for 360-degree immersive audio capture, and Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box.
