HMD Global launched its latest Nokia 8 Sirocco at the Nokia Mobile launch event in Barcelona. This one again is a redesigned version of the Nokia 8 flagship which had its launch a year back, boasting of a curve glass finish and a precision crafted stainless steel frame. The company here has added that the stainless steel frame of this latest Nokia Sirocco is almost 2.5 times stronger than the 6000 series aluminium used in its predecessor and with that is also much more compact in its height, width, and thickness.
With this, the Nokia 8 Sirocco price has been fixed at EUR 749 amounting roughly to ₹60,000 as the global average retail price fixed by HMD Global. However, the Nokia 8 Sirocco price in India is yet to reveal by HMD Global. Also, the smartphone is supposed to go on a sale from early in a Black color variant.
The Specs and features:
Backed by Android 8.0 Oreo, the Nokia 8 Sirocco boasts of a 5.5-inch QHD (1440×2560 pixels) pOLED display with 3D Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Further, this is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC coupled with 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM. Also, It bears a 12-megapixel wide-angle sensor on its primary rear camera, and complete it with an f/1.75 aperture and 1.4-micron pixels. This is again accompanied by a 13-megapixel telephoto lens capable of providing 2x optical zoom, and featuring an f/2.6 aperture, and 1-micron pixels.
The dual rear camera setup features a dual-tone LED flash as well as Zeiss optics, making it very much similar to the Nokia 7 Plus that was also unveiled at the event. The Nokia 8 Sirocco front camera bears a 5-megapixel sensor paired with a fixed focus lens, f/2.0 aperture, and 1.4-micron pixels.
