Finnish phone maker HMD Global on Wednesday announced the Nokia 8, its latest smartphone to use the once-dominant Nokia brand, and its first aimed at the more premium side of the market. (In Europe, at least.)
The device looks like a fairly typical flagship phone in most respects: It’s got a strong chipset, a sharp display, dual cameras, and the like.
The one unusual feature of the Nokia 8 is something HMD calls "Dual-Sight." This lets you shoot photos and photos using the front- and rear-facing cameras at the same time. The result is a split-screen view that ideally looks something like this, according to HMD:
HMD is trying to call images taken with this camera mode "bothies." As in, a selfie, but with images from both sides. I think we can all agree that the less said about this, the better.
