Nokia has came back in a big way this Mobile World Congress with Nokia 8110 4G , Nokia One , Nokia 6 and of-course the flagship Nokia 8 Sirocco.

If you remember , Sirocco is not new for Nokia , the brand has been used for their once flagship Nokia 8800 Sirocco Edition which was a literal gem of a phone and the reitreration in Nokia 8 Sirocco is no different.

Crafted from a single piece stainless steel frame , which is 2.5 times tougher then Aluminum 6000 which other flagships use , Nokia Sirocco comes with a 5.5 inch pOLED Edge to Edge display with a 3D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

Imaging had always been old Nokia’s strength , but for the new Nokia , optics had been their Achilles heal and with Sirocco , Nokia has partnered with Zeiss Optics to bring a 12 MP Wide (2L7, 1.4um, 2PD, f/1.7, FOV 78.2″)  dual-tone flash dual sensor camera with a ultra sensitive wide angle range for excellent low light performance and combined with another + 13 MP Tele (3M3, 1.0um, f/2.6, FOV47.3″) lens , offers 2X Optical zoom.  Nokia has used their Pro Camera mode in Nokia 8 Sirocco giving full manual control to capture the best photo to your liking.  For the front cam and Selfie enthusiast , there is a 5 MP front cam , which seems mediocre given others are offering 12MP front cams too.

For the Audiophile , Nokia 8  Sirocco comes with Nokia Spatial Sound , offering three integrated microphones to provide 24bit High dynamic range audio , and can record upto 132 DB offering crystal clear audio in the noisiest of environments.  While there is a single speaker with Smart Amp , which Nokia says will make ordinary sounds extra ordinary.

Nokia has not mentioned anywhere about the weight of Nokia 8 Sirocco , but at 140.93 x 72.97 x 7.5 mm , it doesn’t look heavy , however Stainless Steel may make it a bit heavy which for me gives a premium feel.

Under the hood , Nokia 8. Sirocco , features Android One , 6GB LPPDDR 4X RAM , Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Octa Core ((4 x 2.36 GHz Kryo + 4 x 1.9 GHz Kryo) processor .

Despite having just 128GB of Internal RAM , you will never run out of storage space oil Nokia 8 Sirocco , thanks to unlimited Google Drive storage.
