Nokia 8 Bothies aren’t the camera gimmick we wanted

Nokia 8 Bothies aren’t the camera gimmick we wanted

Selfies are mundane and so Nokia is hoping to shake things up with a camera feature it has dubbed 'bothies.' If you pronounced that in your head as 'bah-these,' you're not the only one, but that's not what Nokia is going for.
