While Nokia 6, Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 8 Sirocco were officially rolled by HMD on Tuesday, Nokia's pocket-friendly smartphone-Nokia 1 was already launched in India at price tag of Rs 5,499.

The Nokia 6 2018 is cast from a single slab of 6000series Aluminum giving the phone unbelievable strength, making it one if, if not, the strongest smartphones worldwide. But more than that, the lineup also appears to be an attempt by HMD Global to use 2017's success as a launchpad to go bigger this year and in the process bring Nokia back to what many believe is its rightful place in the smartphone industry.

The Nokia 6 (2018) is the most affordable out of these three devices, though it comes with mid-range specifications, which are quite solid.

Nokia 8 Sirocco is the flagship smartphone of the company.


The Nokia 6 (2018) includes a 5.5-inch Full HD display. The company has secured the phone's front display with 3D Gorilla Glass.

Answer: The Nokia 8 Sirocco will be available to buy via Flipkart, select mobile outlets and Nokia Mobile shops from April 30, while you can pre-order it from April 20.

Once the phone is in your hands, you can see how the being carved out of a single block aluminium makes the phone feel solid but, unlike the Nokia 6 (2018), the back of the phone has been coated in six layers of paint. It has an entirely new design with a curved glass finish and a precision crafted stainless steel frame. Nokia 8 Sirocco sports a dual rear camera setup with 12MP (wide) with 13MP (telephoto) sensors.

RAM: The Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 6 (2018) are offered with 6GB, 4GB and 3GB of RAM, respectively.


Nokia 7 plus comes with Dual-Sight, dual rear sensors with ZEISS optics combine an ultra-sensitive 12MP wide-angle primary camera to deliver great performance in both low-light and extra bright conditions and a secondary 13MP camera that delivers 2x optical zoom for the moments when you wish you were closer.

Nokia 7 Plus is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor coupled with 4GB RAM, 64 GB Storage, Android Orea and a 3800mAh battery.

On the front, there is a 5MP camera with features like f/2.0 aperture, 1.4 µm pixel size and 1080p recording. It has 5 megapixels front camera.

Question: Does the Nokia 8 Sirocco features a fingerprint sensor? The Nokia 7 plus will be available at zero cost EMI on credit cards and through Bajaj FinServ and Home Credit and ICICI bank will offer a 5 percent cashback till May 31, 2018. That's surprising as nearly all other recently launched flagships of other brands are shipped with Snapdragon 845 SoC. Canaccord Genuity restated a "hold" rating and issued a $6.00 price target on shares of Nokia in a report on Thursday, February 1st. It comes with fingerprint sensor on its back side. Although Shroff confirmed the company will be discontinuing Nokia 6 from the markets, he did not confirm as to when exactly will this start happening. The phone is equipped with 3800mAh battery with fast charging.


The Nokia phones are being manufactured 100 per cent in India (by Foxconn at Sri City, Andhra Pradesh) and therefore, there is no impact of the latest 10 per cent import duty on printed circuit boards by the government, Rantala said.
