Nokia 8 Sirocco is one of the most beautiful handsets that have come out of HMD Global. It was launched today in an event in Delhi, India along with the Nokia 1 Android Go phone.
Nokia has a brilliant saying that I feel sums up the 8 Sirocco really well
“In the cold North we’ve been taught to craft things you can depend on – in real life. And in real life, when things aren’t like in the movies, the most important thing about your smartphone is that you can depend on it.”
Nokia 1 is the budget offering with below average specifications that has been made to run specifically Android Go, Google’s low overhead version of Android.
Nokia 8 Sirocco Design And Build
The device looks and feels premium with a 3D curved Gorilla Glass 5 to both the front and the back and the metal frame holding these two glass slabs together is carved out of one solid block of stainless steel.
Nokia 8 Sirocco Display
