Nokia 6 (2018), Nokia 1, Nokia 8 Sirocco to launch in India in April- Report

HMD Global entered the Indian smartphone market last year with four Android-based smartphones and one feature phone. This year, the company is expected to launch the Nokia 1, Nokia 6 (2018), and Nokia 8 Sirocco edition at the MWC event. According to the rumours, the three new smartphones will also be launched in India after their international unveil. The India launch of these three smartphones will take place sometime during April. Let us have a look at the rumoured specifications of these three smartphones.

Nokia 8 Sirocco: Expected specifications and price in India

The Nokia 8 Sirocco won’t be a totally new device; it will come with a few additional features over the regular Nokia 8. Starting with the display, the Nokia 8 Sirocco will feature an OLED display, compared to the current implementation of IPS LCD. Secondly, in addition to the dual-camera setup on the back, the Nokia 8 Sirocco will also have dual front-facing cameras, which will make for a total of four cameras. Lastly, the Nokia 8 Sirocco will pack more storage space than the regular Nokia 8. There are also rumours that the device will be built with premium materials, although we aren’t quite sure about it.

The Nokia 8 Sirocco will come with a slight premium over the regular Nokia 8. The Nokia 8 currently costs Rs. 29,990, so we guess that the Nokia 8 Sirocco will be priced approximately Rs. 32,000 in India. The Nokia 8 Sirocco will compete directly with the OnePlus 5T, Mi Mix 2, and the newly launched Motorola Moto Z2 Force.

Nokia 1: Expected specifications and price in India
