Nokia has finally come up with something special, perfect and extraordinary as they recently introduced the new Nokia 8 Sirocco, a smartphone with outstanding features that you can't resist.
Forget Samsung Galaxy S9 or Apple iPhone X, Nokia has produced something smart and better this time, though am just joking, it's a matter of choice but trust me when I saw the features and functionalities of the Nokia 8 Sirocco smartphone I was pleased and can't wait to grab it.
Nokia 8 Sirocco Overview
The new Nokia 8 Sirocco is 5.5" inch curved QHD smartphone featuring 6GB Ram, 128GB internal storage memory, Android 8 Oreo operating system with Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 835 Octa-core processor, 12MP + 5MB front and back camera, 3260mAh battery capacity with wireless charging features etc.
Apart from the outstanding features, Nokia 8 Sirocco is also well designed as it looks gorgeously great, smart and attractive.
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
