Nokia 8 Sirocco FAQ, pros, cons, user queries and answers

Nokia 6 (2017) gets price cut ahead of Nokia 6 (2018) launch: But is it worth it?

HMD Global is all set to launch its three new phones in India today- Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 6 (2018).

Samsung led overall market with 24.7 per cent share in smartphone category and 20.5 per cent share in feature phone for 2017. Here, users will be able to purchase Nokia smartphones including the ones launched on Tuesday.

The 3.5mm headphone is, of course, welcomed, since Nokia's flagship model, the Nokia 8 Sirocco, chose to get rid of the feature altogether. Other highlights of the new Nokia 6 are 5.5-inch Full HD display with 1920 x 1080 resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio, 16MP camera at the rear, 8MP front camera and 3000mAh battery life. However, the Nokia 8 Sirocco, the most premium of the lot, is the only device that will be imported into the country. The company has secured the phone's front display with 3D Gorilla Glass.

The mid-range Nokia 7 Plus will be available in single memory variant i.e. 4GB RAM + 64GB Internal Storage and will be priced at Rs. 25,999.

The Nokia 6 (2018) will be the first to hit the stores and will be available through Nokia Mobile Shops and select retail stores from 6 April at Rs16,999. It also comes with improved grip given by the dual diamond-polished stainless-steel frame.

Made of solid block of 6000 series aluminium and a sculpted 2.5D display with damage-resistant Corning GorillaGlass, the New Nokia 6's compact and refined body is built to last, Nokia said.

The Nokia 7 Plus camera with Zeiss lenses comes with a dual rear setup. Additionally, a Qi Wireless Charger is available with the smartphone. Nokia has used the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset we saw in the predecessor to power the new smartphone.

There are some launch offers as well such as cashback of Rs 2,000 for Airtel customers on the Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 6 that brings their price down to effectively Rs. 23, 999 and Rs 14,999 as a part of Airtels Mera Pehla Smartphone initiative. The dual SIM device runs on Android 8.0 Oreo featuring 4 GB of RAM and powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC. The front-facing lens of 5MP has a wide-angle of 84-degrees and can shoot "Bothie" using both the front and rear camera simultaneously, even while in video chat.

Nokia 1 is basically an entry level smartphone which runs on Android Oreo (Go edition) which is optimized for lower configuration devices. It packs a 3,800 mAh battery with fast charging support. Under the hood sits a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC which is upgraded from last year's Snapdragon 400.

The display of the phone is considerably large at 6-inches and flirts with phones in the phablet segment. The pricing list for the smartphone starts from Rs. 16,999. The rear has a 16 MP camera sensor and the front comes with an 8 MP camera sensor.

HMD also showcased Nokia 1, which was launched in the Indian market recently.

Question: Does the Nokia 8 Sirocco features a fingerprint sensor? It'll be sold via offline shops and the brand's website in Black/Copper, White/Iron, and Blue/Gold colors from April 6. Sensors on board include an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, barometer, digital compass, fingerprint sensor, gyroscope, and proximity sensor.
