Nokia brings competition to 'selfies' with its new 'bothie' phones [Hi-Tech]

The Morning Call

Mobile phone manufacturers Nokia are bringing a new phase of selfies with their new Nokia 8 phones.

The Nokia 8, which will be released in September, has a new feature called the “Dual-Sight” mode which is the first in history.

This allows you to take photos simultaneously using the front and back cameras to create a split-screen visual.

Nokia terms it a Bothie to reflect the single photo and videos taken from both sides.

I wonder if Bothie can overtake the term selfie.

The phone’s 13-megapixel front and rear cameras are equipped with ZEISS optics.

They have a high-powered audio technology feature and can livestream dual videos to Facebook and Youtube by the touch of a button.

Let’s see how this will fare.

Watch this edition of Hi-Tech on The Morning Call with Ismail Akwei for more.
