Nokia Sirocco powered by Android one

Android One brings a Google-designed software experience to the Nokia 8 Sirocco giving you everything you want and nothing you don’t, with a streamlined, easy to use interface and a curated set of pre-installed apps, and free, unlimited high-quality photos storage3 with Google Photos. Regular security updates and two years of OS upgrades means the Nokia 8 Sirocco with Android One stays secure and features the latest Google innovations like being optimized for the Google Assistant.

Nokia 8 Sirocco is a perfect alternative to Nokia Edge that was rumored but never officially announced or released by Nokia because they both looks great with a curved screen display.

I was not impressed with Nokia after releasing Nokia 3, 5, 6, and 8 because both of them just looks the same which is the same reason I don’t like most of the Samsung smartphones because they always look alike that you will find I difficult to differentiate their models

With the Release of Nokia 8 Sirocco, they have shown that they are truly back in business but don’t forget about first Nokia 8, the difference now is Sirocco
