The first flagship competitor from Nokia (HMD Global), the Nokia 8, has started shipping to different regions and with this guide, you can find out how to take screenshots on the new device. Coming with a striking design and some bold color schemes, the Nokia 8 features the best hardware available right now. Staying true to what got HMD Global on the map, – the amazingly stock software – Nokia 8 will be featuring a similar UI. There is no extra bloat bogging the phone down. That also results in an easy to use software with no gimmicks. Our guide below focuses on letting users know how exactly to take screenshots on Nokia 8.
Nokia 8 carries a 5.3 inch 2K display with spacing on the top and bottom for sensors and buttons. Even though there is a home button cutout, there is no actual button. Rather, Nokia has fitted a touch sensitive space which acts as a fingerprint sensor as well. Due to this unique layout, the screenshot procedure is somewhat different but don’t worry, we have it listed in the steps given below.
