After launching the Nokia 2, Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 past year, the company has now launched four new Android smartphones that were announced just last month, during Mobile World Congress 2018. In addition to the launch of three new Nokia smartphones, HMD Global also announced the launch of Nokia phones shop an online shop for all Nokia devices and accessories in the country. Some of the rumours also hint that it can be an Android One smartphone, which seems to be in-line with the other mid-range and low-end Nokia phones unveiled at the MWC this year. This is coupled with 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM and a microSD slot which can be used to expand storage.
HMD Global has also chosen to equip the phone with a really powerful main camera setup, one that it also uses on the more expensive, Nokia 8 Sirocco. The device has the same old 5.5-inch Full HD IPS LCD Display, powered with Snapdragon 630 Chipset on the board. It has a bit of chin and considering the 6-inch panel, it is on the taller side of things, but this is a phone that looks damn attractive. Airtel customers buying Nokia 8 Sirocco will get additional data benefit of 120GB.
But will 2018's range of Nokia smartphones be able to do that? The front-facing camera is an 8-megapixel shooter with f/2.0 aperture and 1080p video recording capabilities. The device now offers slightly thinner bezels and sports a 3D curved glass on the top. It comes in Black / Copper, White / Iron and Blue / Gold colors.
Network choices on Nokia 9 incorporate Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/air conditioning, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS/A-GPS, Glonass, USB Type-C, and NFC. On the front, it features a 5-megapixel camera for selfies. Also, it supports wireless charging, not a niche feature anymore but a good-to-see feature.
The Nokia 8 Sirocco is HMD's flagship for the first half of 2018, and unlike a majority of devices in this category, it retains a 16:9 form factor. Let's tell you what specific features are given in the Nokia 8 Sirocco. And as we mentioned above, it will most likely come powered by Snapdragon 845 SoC clubbed with 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM.
The dual camera phone carries a 12MP primary snapper and a secondary 13MP camera with 2x optical zoom. Coming to the specifications, Nokia 6 comes with a 5.5-inch full HD with a screenresolution of 1920x1080 pixels and 2.5d curved display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection.
The Nokia 6 2018 is positioned in the budget segment - with the phone going on sale for ₹16,999 - and there's no shortage of competition. The phone will ship with Android 8.0 Oreo OS out-of-the-box. This coupled with Android One and the 3,800mAh battery should help the phone have stellar two-day battery life, at least that's what the company claims. It features a dual rear camera module with a 12 megapixel and a 13-megapixel camera with dual tone LED flash. Moreover, the Nokia 9 may also pack in five high-performance microphones for better audio output. The rear also hosts a fingerprint sensor.
