It’s (nearly) Christmas! Get yourself a Nokia 8!

Hello my fun festive friends.

There’s a bit of a story to this one. Just a few weeks back I jokingly poked a bit of fun at an email we’d received from the lovely, lovely people at Nokia PR. Basically it was a brief email with a picture of a Nokia 8 in a Christmas stoking and I decided to be all “funny” and play on it a bit. That, it turns out, went down like a lead balloon.

As it’s nearly Christmas, and to go some way to apologise, I’d like to point out a number of Nokia 8 deals that are available. The phone, which you can read all about in our earlier story, is 7.9mm thick and runs Android 7.1.1. Inside there’s a super-quick Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core CPU (4 2.5GHz and 4 1.8GHz Kryo) plus 4GB of RAM.

Inside you also get Bluetooth 5.0, NFC (for your contactless payments), WiFi, 4G connectivity and 64GB of on-board storage with a microSD slot for even more. Camera-wise there’s a colour and monochrome dual 13 megapixel shooter arrangement (f/2.0 with PDAF, IR range finder and dual tone flash), plus there’s a selfie cam on the front which is 13 megapixels and also has Phase Detection Auto Focus.

Other bits? Well, there’s a real 3.5mm audio port, 3 microphones to do that clever noise cancelling business and there’s a rather nice 5.3″ IPS QHD (2560 x 1440) screen which is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

It’s charged via a USB Type C and there’s a 3090mAh battery powering the show. It’s also splashproof. Basically, all in all, a top-end phone.

If you’re interested, take a look at some of the deals we’ve spotted below! Prices start from £17.99 per month.
