Nokia finally has a premium, flagship phone in the form of the Nokia 8. While it's packing a powerful processor and a funky dual camera setup, this Android Nougat phone doesn't have much else to get excited about.

The model we photographed here is the high-gloss blue version, which looks pretty special, but the phone is more commonly found in a standard matte finish, which looks almost identical to the Nokia 5 -- which costs hundreds less.

It's on sale now in the UK for £499. While there are no firm details on whether it'll hit the US or Australia, Nokia has said that it's keen to launch the phone in both regions. That UK price converts to $675 or AU$840, though we have seen it sold via a third party on Amazon.com for $699.

The highly polished, all-metal body has a real luxury look. It's a shame that the matte model removes that premium aesthetic.

There's a 5.3-inch display on the front with a 2,560x1,440-pixel resolution. It's pin-sharp and bright.

The glossy back gleams beautifully. Nokia says the phone is "splash-proof" but not properly waterproof. That means you'll need to keep it strictly away from the poolside, but sending a quick text in a light rain shower shouldn't be too bad.

That's definitely Android Nougat, not the new Oreo.
