Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 7 Plus Launched in India; Know Price, Specs

While the Nokia 7 Plus will be available in Black and White colours (combined with the signature copper tone), the Nokia 8 Sirocco will only come in a Black colour. Here in the Android scene, entry-level smartphones never get updated at all hence it is a good move for Nokia to launch Oreo on the Nokia 3.

As for online availability, the Nokia 7 Plus is up for pre-order on Amazon India for ₹25,999 ($400), and customers with ICICI credit and debit cards will be able to get a 10% cashback (it'll be credited in August). Besides cashback offers, there is also a 25 percent instant discount if you book your stay at domestic hotels on MakeMyTrip. You can also avail the Bothie feature in this smartphone. At the front there's a 16-megapixel selfie camera. The company has reduced the RAM to 4 GB instead of the 6 GB that came with the Nokia 7 from past year. Starting today, Nokia 8 Sirocco and Nokia 7 Plus are available for pre-booking across both, offline and online channels. This fact was cemented earlier today when HMD started releasing Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Nokia 3 from previous year. Nokia 8 Sirocco is powered with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835, which could be a disappointing fact considered among other top smartphones in the industry which are powered with the latest Qualcomm 845 SoC.

According to the company, the ultra-compact powerhouse is their most attractive smartphone to date. There is also a minimum assurance Rs. 3000 over the price of your old device, if you go for the exchange offer. While prepaid customers will get 20GB additional data on each of the first 6 recharges of Rs 199 or Rs 349, postpaid customers can avail the additional 20GB per month on the Rs 399 or Rs 499 plan for 6 months. It offers a resolution of 1080×2160 pixels at an aspect ratio of 18:9. It has a Snapdragon 660 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage and comes with Android Oreo Go edition, meaning an Android with nearly no bloatware on top.

As for camera optics, the 7 Plus comes with a dual camera setup featuring a 12 MP camera sensor with f/1.75 aperture and a 13 MP telephoto camera sensor with a f/2.6 aperture for 2x optical zoom.
