Last year, we saw Nokia entering with three products initially and later we even saw their flagship device. This time at Mobile World Congress, not only Nokia resurrected their classic Nokia 8110, they’ve also refreshed their Android lineup with new devices with interesting specification under the hood.
Nokia 8 Sirocco
Last year, the Nokia 8 was one of the smartphone which packed flagship grade specification and boasted an unbelievable price tag. This year, they’ve refreshed the 8 with 8 Sirocco.
The device now has a beautiful design with curved glass both on the front and back. The Nokia 8 also features a pOLED 2K display which is a curved 5.5″ display. Followed by that, we also see that the device is crafted with stainless steel frame, making it 2.5 times stronger than the Aluminium 6000 series.
The camera on the other hand, it comes with dual rear sensors equipped with ZEISS optics. The secondary 13MP sensor acts as a 2X Optical Zoom. Under the hood, it runs Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 with 6GB RAM and 128GB of Internal Storage. It’s also IP 67 certified this time.
The Nokia 8 will be available in one color which is black.
Nokia 7 Plus
The Nokia 7 Plus is their new phablet that packs a 6″ FHD+ display. It comes in the new 18:9 aspect ratio that became a trend last year. It’s powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor with 4GB RAM and 64GB Internal Storage. Not only that, the Nokia 7 Plus also features a dual-camera setup with Zeiss Optics, 12MP Primary sensor and 13MP Secondary Sensor that does 2X Optical zoom.
It also packs a huge 3800 mAh battery that will give your phone juice for more than a day. What makes the whole device interesting is the fact that it has a body of a 5.5″ inch device but packs a bigger display in it.
The Nokia 7 Plus comes in a blended color that gives a rich feel and amazing look, Black-copper and White-copper.
The Nokia 6 is also made out of an solid block of 6000 series Aluminium, with an 11 hour two tone anodising and polishing process. The device now packs a Dual-Sight camera with ZEISS optics, USB-C Fast charging and has a compact screen-to-body ratio. Under the hood, you’ll find that it’s powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 630.
The device comes in two different configuration: 3GB of RAM with 32GB Internal Storage and 4GB of RAM with 64GB Internal Storage. The Nokia 6 also comes in a blended finish – 3 to be specific: Black-Copper, White-Iron and Blue-Gold.
