Nokia 8 Sirocco unveiled at MWC18: price, specs and more

At MWC18, HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, announced the launch of Nokia 8 Sirocco, along with Nokia 7 Plus, new Nokia 6 and Nokia 1.

Nokia 8 Sirocco features an ultra-compact design with a stainless-steel frame at 2mm thin at the edge, and a curved edge-to-edge pOLED 2K 5.5-inch display with smaller bezels and moulded body curves.

The stainless steel frame is 2.5 times stronger than 6000 series aluminum, and its 3D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 is robust enough to endure life’s everyday knocks, Nokia said.

Nokia 8 Sirocco dual rear sensors with ZEISS optics combine an ultra-sensitive, wide angle primary camera for impressive low-light performance and a secondary 13MP sensor with 2x optical zoom.

Additionally the Pro Camera mode gives full manual control over every picture.
