HMD Global - the manufacturer of Nokia phones launched these smartphones including the Nokia 6 (2018) in India earlier this month.
The Nokia 7 Plus comes in a single storage option of 4GB + 64GB which has been priced at Rs 25,999 in Black Copper and White Copper colours, while the Nokia 8 Sirocco comes with a premium price tag of Rs 49,999 and will be offered in only one colour - Black. Nokia 8 Sirocco customers on Airtel will also get an extended free subscription to the Airtel TV app till 31 December 2018.
Other than Flipkart, The device is available for pre-order on Nokia Mobile Store and offline partners and would be available in black only. Unlike Qualcomm which helps simplify a firmware update for phones that rely on their chipset, MediaTek never offered any help at all hence explaining why the update arrived on the Nokia 3 8 months after Oreo made its debut. The connectivity aspects in the Nokia 2 include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, hotspot, v4.1, A2DP, LE, micro USB 2.0, with A-GPS, GLONASS, BDS and dual sim. It features a 5.5-inch QHD P-OLED unit that curves around the sides and features Corning's Gorilla Glass 5 protection against any scratches. Besides cashback offers, there is also a 25 percent instant discount if you book your stay at domestic hotels on MakeMyTrip. On the camera front, the flagships boast dual 12MP cameras with 2X optical zoom and are powered by Carl Zeiss optics.
The Nokia 8 Sirocco has a 12 MP camera sensor with a f/1.7 aperture and a 13 MP camera sensor with a telephoto lens and f/2.6 aperture on the back.
The unfortunate thing here is that Nokia has received more hate than love following the release of Android 8.0 Oreo.
Front Camera- 16MP front-facing camera.
Battery: 3260mAh battery with fast charging, Qi Wireless Charging.
