HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones has started its pre-bookings for their latest offerings - the Nokia 8 Sirocco and the Nokia 7 plus, which are now available for both offline and online channels. You can also avail the Bothie feature in this smartphone. Out of the two phones going on pre-orders today, we reviewed the Nokia 7 Plus recently and we can safely say that it can be your daily driver and won't disappoint in terms of performance.

The phone also comes with 64 GB internal storage along with support to expand storage with the help of a microSD card with up to 256 GB capacity.

Nokia 8 Sirocco comes with storytelling features including enhanced "dual-sight", ZEISS optics and acoustics with Nokia spatial audio.

Of course, HMD Global made at least one major compromise by sticking to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 powerhouse SoC from past year instead of adopting the all-new and improved 845 processor. The release date is scheduled for April 30, 2018. That equates to less than $400, compared to around $760 for the 8 Sirocco, and the Snapdragon 660 mid-ranger sports the larger, wider 6-inch 2:1 LCD screen as well.

The Nokia 7 Plus comes in a single storage option of 4GB + 64GB which has been priced at Rs 25,999 in Black Copper and White Copper colours, while the Nokia 8 Sirocco comes with a premium price tag of Rs 49,999 and will be offered in only one colour - Black. There is a 25% discount on domestic hotel bookings by MakeMyTrip also.

Call of Duty is supposedly jumping on the Battle Royale wagon
As well as a rumored Conquest mode, the latest news suggests that DICE is testing the waters with Battle Royale. All things considered, it wouldn't be a huge stretch to see a battle royale mode implemented into Battlefield .

New Nokia 6 is priced at Rs 16,999 and will be available starting April 6 from Nokia shop and other leading stores across the country. Besides the two e-commerce platforms, these smartphones will also be available on Nokia's website as well.

On buying the Nokia 8 Sirocco with ICICI credit/debit card, customers will be entitled to a 10 per cent cashback, for a limited period though.
