The 'Matrix phone' is back: Nokia 8110 retro reboot coming in May

Priced at 799 euros, Nokia 8 Sirocco will start shipping in early April 2018 and should hit Indian shores at closer to Rs 65,000 mark.

The company's already-launched devices, including the first-generation Nokia 6, will not join Android One. Based on Android Oreo, Nokia 6 is destined to get guaranteed latest Android updates for two years, like any other Android One phone. Nokia has also incorporated support for wireless charging onto the design of the flagship. The colours are most visible on the back panel, but can also be seen creeping around the edge from the front a little. In the same vein as the luxury described above, this device has a "Full 3D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 body [that] curves around on all sides of the stainless-steel chassis for beauty and strength". The smartphone, however, runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, which is same as the current-generation Nokia 8. Nokia 8 Sirocco has 6GB RAM, 128GB internal storage and finger-print scanner at the back. These include the Android Go powered Nokia 1, Android One powered Nokia 6 and Nokia 7 Plus, Nokia 8810 and the flagship Nokia 8 Sirocco. The Nokia 8 Sirocco now uses the same 12MP regular and 12MP wide camera of the Nokia 7 Plus. The company has listed the Nokia 9 case in question on its website, where it was called the "Merge". A 3.5mm headphone jack is not available here, you'll need to use a dongle in order to plug your headphones in.

It is a fixed focus camera with a f/2.0 aperture and again Zeiss optics. This new Android One phone will be available starting April this year. The Nokia 8 Sirocco will set you back €749 should you choose to buy it, at least in Europe.

It is powered by the Snapdragon 660 chipset and has Adreno 612 GPU under the hood. It features a similar design as the Nokia 6 (2018) and comes with different shades for the camera module.

The Nokia 1 is the solution to this problem. On the camera front, Blade V9 will feature a 16-megapixel primary camera and a 5-megapixel secondary camera. But that's exactly the kind of device that Android Go was made for.

After launching the Nokia 6 (2018) in China, HMD Global today unveiled another variant of the Nokia 6 at the MWC 2018 in Barcelona.

The big topics, as with many conferences in the previous year or so, are going to be 5G, AI and IoT.

We don't have official United Kingdom pricing just yet, but Nokia says we can expect a price tag of around €79 - so that's probably £79, too. The device runs on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box and is said to receive Face Unlock feature via OTA update in Q2 2018. It's fair to say that the Nokia 7 Plus is one of the best-looking devices out there available in the market.

It also comes with 3GB RAM, and Fast Charge via a USB Type-C connector.
