Airtel customers buying Nokia 8 Sirocco will get additional data benefit of 120GB. The brightness levels and contrast seemed good indoors; however, we will test the handset outdoors to find out how the Nokia 6's screen performs in direct sunlight.

The new Nokia 6 will cost Rs 16,999 in the market.

As far as our initial impressions go, the Nokia 7 Plus makes a good case for itself, not because of the spec-sheet but probably for the three Zeiss lenses that come with it. We had earlier reported that the Finnish company had planned a launch event on April 4 to unveil the Nokia 7 Plus along with the Nokia 6 (2018) and the Nokia 8 Sirocco.

With just 33% smartphone penetration all eyes are set on India as the country holds the biggest window of opportunity for all smartphone vendors to grow phenomenally.

The vivid 6-inch 18:9 Full HD+ display makes the Nokia 7 plus flawless for browsing, social media consumption, gaming and entertainment with more content in the same width as a traditional 5.5-inch display device. The phone will be available staring April 20, 2018. ICICI bank will offer a 5% cashback till May 31, 2018.

Unlike Nokia 8 Sirocco, you get a 3.5mm headphone jack on top. The pre-bookings for the phone will start on April 20 at leading offline retailers like Croma, Reliance Digital and more. Nokia also launched its Nokia Mobile shop which will Act as online retails store for Nokia phones and accessories.

Inspired by the rich design heritage of Nokia phones, the Nokia 8 Sirocco's elegant design and compact style is the ideal blend of precise craftsmanship and purposeful innovation.

ICICI bank will offer a five percent cashback till May 31, 2018. One of the interesting aspects about Nokia 6 (2018) is that it comes with a solid design and interesting hardware. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 mobile platform.

RAM: 3GB RAM, 32GB storage, expandable memory up to 128GB with microSD. It sports a dual-rear camera setup with a 12 MP wide-angle primary camera, and a 13 MP secondary camera with 2x optical zoom with an aperture rate of f/1.75 and f/2.6, respectively.

Question: Does Nokia 8 Sirocco support dual SIM cards? The 18:9 aspect ratio display comes with Full 3D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for added screen protection. The device packs 4GB of RAM and 64GB of inbuilt storage space that is further upgradable. Imaging features also are of the same configuration- 16-megapixel camera sensor with PDAF, f/2.0 aperture lens accompanied by a dual-tone LED flash and Zeiss optics at the back and an 8-megapixel, f/2.0 84-degree wide-angle lens shooter on the front for selfies. The rear also hosts a fingerprint sensor. The smartphone will feature a 21MP front camera with f/1.8 aperture and display flash. And since the phone can only be used if its charged, the 3,800mAH battery promises to give two days of usability according to the company.

Question: Which Android version runs on the Nokia 8 Sirocco? . Nokia 8 Sirocco features a 5.5-inch QHD pOLED display and is powered by the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor clubbed with 6GB RAM.

The Nokia 7, in comparison, ran on the Snapdragon 630, which isn't almost as powerful as the 660. That's surprising as nearly all other recently launched flagships of other brands are shipped with Snapdragon 845 SoC. It comes with fingerprint sensor on its back side.

The phone also features Pro camera, which allows you full control over advanced settings. All of this is fueled by a 3260mAh battery with wired fast charging and Qi wireless charging support.
