Rumours about as many as three different high-end smartphones – the Nokia 10, Nokia 9 and Nokia 8 Pro – have been doing the rounds of the internet lately. Both the models offers expandable storage of up to 128GB. At this year’s event, the Finnish OEM doubled down on the retro vibes with yet another reborn classic – the all new Nokia 8110 4G.
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 updated phone features 4G support, 25-day battery life and the iconic game, Snake.
What it lacks in style it make up for in strength, and this is typically solid Nokia device that feels like it could survive a real beating.
Nokia went all-out on the Sirocco, testing the waters for this brand in the flagship Android space. This device has a 6-inch IPS LCD display with 2160 x 1080 pixel resolution.
Nokia says not to worry about that phone cracking – it’s built to withstand 450 pounds of pressure.
Up front, the smartphone houses a 5-megapixel wide-angle camera with f/2.0 aperture and flash for selfies. These will be Carl Zeiss lenses and will come with 2X optical zoom. An upgrade to its existing Nokia 8, Nokia 8 Sirocco is a power packed smartphone priced at €749 (Rs 60,000 approximately). The Nokia 8 Sirocco is not fueled by the Snapdragon 845, it ships with the Snapdragon 835 instead, Qualcomm flagship processor for 2017.
The Nokia 7 Plus will be released in April of 2018 – well before we expected any new Nokia phones, to be entirely honest. There’s a microSD card slot for storage expansion. A quad-core MediaTek MT6737M powers the phone, helped on by 1GB of RAM. The Nokia 1 also gets Xpress-on covers that will give users to change the back covers with a variety of cover accessories to choose from.
Chinese giant Huawei have already confirmed an event for later in March to show off its next offering, but the company is still holding a pre-MWC press conference, so could have something else new it wants to show off.
Among other bigger launches include affordable Android Go phones, None other than Google confirmed this. You can read about these two phones here.
Beyond mid-to-high-end smartphones, Nokia also took the wraps off of an $85 device called the Nokia 1. Like the new Nokia 6, this was snappy in my brief testing, slowing no noticeable slowdown in any of the apps I opened up.
The Nokia 7 Plus is comes with an Aluminium unibody design and 6 coating layers.
Layers of ceramic paint on top of aluminum make for a sleek, premium feeling phone.
Think of the €399 Nokia 7 Plus as a less expensive version of the Nokia 8 Sirocco.
The Nokia 8 comes complete with dual 13-megapixel rear cameras, along with a 13-megapixel front camera, all of which feature Zeiss lenses.
