Nokia brought 5 new Android phones to MWC 2018 (3x Android One + 1x Android Go + 1x Feature Phone) and the Nokia 8 Sirocco is what leads the pack. This short and stout phone includes a tough stainless steel side frame, curved vacuum molded Gorilla glass, dual cameras with Zeiss optics, lofty specs, and Android One promise.
Here is all that you need to know about Nokia 8 Sirocco:
Nokia 8 Sirocco highlights
- Nokia 8 Sirocco looks premium with its primarily-glass body. The edges are curved and taper to just 2mm. The power button and volume rocker are placed on this thin strip.
- 5.5-inch OLED screen is vibrant and attractive.
- The handset is IP67 dust and water resistant and supports wireless charging.
- Unfortunately, there is no headphone jack on the phone
- The dual camera on the rear is tuned by Zeiss. You get 12MP regular + 13MP telephoto (or zoom) lens.
- The phone is powered by Snapdragon 835 chipset, which may start to feel a bit dated for a flagship once the first few Snapdragon 845 phones go official.
- The chipset is coupled with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage.
- The software is assured to be up to date, though. This is an Android One phone and Android P update was guaranteed on the stage. It will get Android Q as well.
- Nokia 8 Sirocco will be available for 749 Euros (Roughly Rs. 60,000) starting from April 2018.
Nokia 8 Sirocco Features
Nokia 8 Sirocco is the ‘true Android flagship’ Nokia fans have been asking for. The phone has a unique design (an important flagship trait, and something Nokia 8 Plus was missing), has powerful hardware, and runs Google-powered (Android One) software.
The stainless steel frame running around the edges makes it tough and the curved class edge that tapers from 7.5mm to 2mm makes it look elegant.
On the inside, you get Snapdragon 835 (last year flagship that makes it hard to justify the price), 6GB RAM, and 128GB storage. Other features include 12MP + 13MP rear camera, 5MP selfie camera, and 3260mAh battery.
The dual camera has Zeiss optics, an elaborate Pro mode, and a live focus mode. The phone also has a new smart photo editor app.
