At the launch event in New Delhi, HMD Global also announced the launch of the Nokia Mobile Shop - the company's online store for India. It comes with 3GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage, which can be expanded up to 128 GB.
Nokia 8 Sirocco, which Nokia claims as an ultra-compact powerhouse and their most attractive smartphone to date, comes with enhanced Dual-Sight, ZEISS optics and Nokia spatial audio. Airtel customers can get a cashback offer of Rs 2000 on the Nokia 7 Plus and get the smartphone at an effective price of Rs. 23, 999 as a part of Airtel's "Mera Pehla Smartphone" initiative. The phone will be available from April 30.
Nokia 7 Plus has a 6-inch FullHD+ IPS LCD Display, having an aspect ratio of 18:9. The phone has a setup similar to the top of the line, Nokia 8 Sirocco. It bears a 12-megapixel wide-angle sensor on its primary rear camera, complete with an f/1.75 aperture and 1.4-micron pixels.
The Nokia 8 Sirocco is the high-end smartphone and features a 5.5-inch (2560×1440 pixels) pOLED display with sculpted Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. It is unclear whether HMD Global would source the optical fingerprint sensor from Synaptics or another company. All of this is backed by 3000mAh battery with fast charging support that promises to deliver up to 16 hours of talk time and up to 507 hours of standby time. The phone will also pack wireless charging support, thanks to the ceramic back plate as seen on the Mi Mix 2S. Being an Android One phone, it presently runs on Oreo and is promised to get timely Android updates.
The "New" Nokia 6 runs on Android Oreo based on an Android One ROM and utilises a Snapdragon 630 chipset along with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. The rear side features a dual camera module that houses a 12-megapixel wide-angel sensor with f/1.75 aperture and a 13-megapixel telephoto sensor. It has 16MP back camera if it seems a bit of a disappointment over the other dual camera smartphones out there don't forget that Google Pixel with a single camera outperforms most of the dual cameras in the market, with f2.0 aperture.
