Samsung Innov8 Set to Convert Nokia Fans

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 6:02PM EST

The announcement of the upcoming Samsung Innov8 caused Nokia fans all over Europe to break into a bit of a sweat it would seem. How is it possible that the hottest S60 handset in the world could be made by anyone other than Nokia?! Ok everyone just calm down. It remains to be seen whether or not the Innov8 will have the feature set to back up that 8 megapixel camera but we have to be honest here – it looks pretty sweet. We’re all a bit closer to find out however, as the boys over at AAS have given the Innov8 some head to head treatment, pitting it against the N95 8GB in a comprehensive walk through that even includes a few sample images from the Innov8’s camera. In case you were wondering, yeah, it takes some pretty solid images. In terms of size, comparisons show that the Innov8 is plenty taller than the N95 8GB but it’s also significantly thinner. This is something that Nokia fans have been asking for with regards to the N95. The N96 takes a step in the right direction, albeit a small step as the depth of the device is down only 1 mm. The Innov8 is still 3 mm thinner than the dieting N96 so S60 fans yearning for a trim multimedia handset may need to give the Innov8 some serious consideration over the N96. Hit the read link for more but until we see “850” next to a WCDMA listing in the Innov8 specs, none of it really matters.
