This handset has been leaking for quite some time now, and the Nokia 8 Sirocco is actually both the most powerful and most expensive device HMD announced today.

The Nokia 8 Sirocco is technically a more premium version of the Nokia 8 but in practice is much closer to a new phone altogether. There are also a bunch of Android One devices which offer stock Android experience with faster OTA updates.

The reimagined Nokia 8110 4G also includes 4G LTE connectivity - it's in the name after all.

It could also be a strong pick for children or elderly people who are getting to grips with mobile phones for the first time.

The Nokia 7 Plus sports a 6-inch full HD+ 18:9 aspect ratio display with latest Gorilla Glass protection on top. The dual-SIM handset features a Snapdragon 205 chipset, 512MB of RAM, and 4Gb of internal storage.

The new Nokia 6 is the upgraded version of last year's Nokia 6 and it is an Android One smartphone that comes pre-installed with Google Assistant.

The Nokia 8 Sirocco combines an elegant design with two glass plates glued to a stainless steel metal frame. It features a similar design as the Nokia 6 (2018) and comes with different shades for the camera module.

Nokia 1 was the star of the show. As I said, the display covers most of the front, it's also great in terms of viewing angles and calibration, according to The Verge.

This entry-level from the company comes preloaded with Android 8.1 Oreo, as part of the Android Go program. It is powered by a Snapdragon 630 processor, paired with 3GB of RAM along with 32GB internal storage.

It comes with a dual-camera setup with 12-megapixel + 13-megapixel sensors with Carl Zeiss at the back, with 2X optical zoom.
