Five hotly anticipated smartphones at MWC


The Nokia 8 Sirocco will be available from April at a price of €749 (~$921/₹59,589). Now at the MWC 2018, the company has announced even more devices including another retro phone. During the announcement, Nokia also claimed to be "the first global partner to have a full suite of devices into the Android One programme by Google". Nokia has also incorporated support for wireless charging onto the design of the flagship. A fingerprint scanner sits on the back of the phone, right below the device's cameras.

The smartphone features a 5.5-inch display and features "damage-resistant" Corning Gorilla Glass. The devices include the premium Nokia 8 Sirocco smartphone, the mid-range Nokia 6 and Nokia 7 Plus and the Nokia 1 for emerging markets. What's important to know here is that - from now on - every Nokia phone with the Zeiss brand on its camera will come with a cool Manual mode in the camera app.

The phone runs on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 chip and 6GB of RAM.

While the rest of Nokia's new lineup goes with a milled aluminium approach, the Nokia 8 Sirocco goes a very different way for its construction. A 3.5mm headphone jack is not available here, you'll need to use a dongle in order to plug your headphones in. All the camera glass is made by Zeiss, and HMD is also promising a whole bunch of software tricks to make the photos good. The phone will go on sale in April for a price of $85 (~₹5,500), which is the global average retail price.

While the display remains the same size and resolution, there's been a slight reduction in the bezels top and bottom as this phone gets a little shorter.

The Android One integration is great news for prospective buyers, and the design and screen are great to look at. Just like the Nokia 8, the Nokia 8 Sirocco also comes with OZO Audio which allows for 360 degree audio recording and Bothie which allows users to capture pictures/video via the front and rear camera simultaneously.

Google's Android One programme identifies high-quality, affordable components that can go into next-generation smartphones and makes it easier for manufacturers to build a device. This is for the one who love the classic model as it is like the older phones, But with latest features. It comes with a dual-camera setup with 12-megapixel + 13-megapixel sensors with Carl Zeiss at the back, with 2X optical zoom. One of the lenses holds a 12MP shooter with f/1.75 aperture and the secondary lens packs a 13MP with f/2.6 aperture.

As everyone expected, the Nokia 6 (2018) just became global.

The Nokia 1 that features a 854x480 4.5-inch display and a quad-core MediaTek processor operating at 1.1GHz with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage underneath, has a 5-megapixel rear camera, and a 2-megapixel front camera. The battery capacity remains the same at 3000mAh.
