Users will have the option to choose between 3GB and 4GB of RAM which would give 32GB or 64GB of internal storage respectively.

On the front, you'll find a single 16-megapixel sensor which employs ZEISS optics as well. The fingerprint sensor, therefore, has been relocated to the rear beneath the camera. It features a 6-inch full-HD+ screen with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and a resolution of 1080*2160 pixels.

Nokia 6 (2018) sports 5.5-inch FHD 1080p IPS display and packs Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 octa-core processor. The smartphone is backed by a 3000mAh battery and is upgradeable to Android 8.0 Oreo.

In terms of optics, Nokia 8 Sirocco bears a dual rear camera setup with a dual-tone LED flash and Zeiss optics. The Smartphone will include a 21MP front camera with f/1.8 opening and show streak.

Nokia 8 and 7 Plus feature some interesting design and hardware specs. Nokia 9 will utilize a USB Type-C opening for charging. It is powered by the Snapdragon 430 chipset with Adreno 505 GPU. It sports 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage.

Answer: The Nokia 8 Sirocco is powered by a 3,260 mAh non-removable battery with fast charging and wireless charging support. Yes, it has a 16-megapixel f/2.0 aperture shooter with Zeiss optics and an 8-megapixel snapper on the front that even supports Nokia 8 like dual sight technology, but that's more gimmick than function. It has a rear camera of 8-megapixel and a frontal camera of 2-megapixel.

This phone is water and dust resistant with IP67 certification and incorporates fingerprint sensor on the back plus Face Unlock feature.

Future iPhones to Feature Curved Displays, Touchless Controls
The technology could be useful for augmented reality, which is where Apple has put in a lot of effort in the past couple of years. With the iPhone X off to a weaker than expected start, Apple has been scrambling to offer better innovations in future devices.

HMD has removed the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack and replaced it with USB Type-C, provided with a Type-C to 3.5mm converted. HMD has gone all out in creating a beautifully crafted phone with 95 per cent of the device covered in glass and a stainless steel in between.

All these smartphones run on Google Android Oreo One for faster and secure updates on a regular interval.

The mid-range Nokia 6 is crafted from a solid block of 6000 series aluminium and goes through anodizing and polishing process, which in my opinion has done the trick.

To recall, the Nokia 6 (2017) received an Rs. 1500 price cut over a month ago, bringing the cost of the phone down to Rs. 13,499. Pre-booking of the Nokia 8 Sirocco starts on April 20 with the phone up for sale on April 30, 2018. The smartphone is available in three colours- Matte Black, Silver and Tempered Blue.

HMD Global, makers of Nokia brand of mobile phones, launched four smartphones across price bands, as it aims to take more share in the growing yet competitive market. It will hit the shelves on April 30.

Nokia 8 Sirocco, which Nokia claims as an ultra-compact powerhouse and their most handsome smartphone to date, comes with enhanced Dual-Sight, ZEISS optics and Nokia spatial audio. The combination of Xenon and LED flash will ensure that you get a flashlight as well as a powerful camera flash.
