Nokia launches Nokia 6, Nokia 7 and Nokia 8 in India

Nokia 8 Sirocco

HMD Global launched its three new smartphones in India on Wednesday. Nokia 8 Sirocco also comes with "Face Unlock" feature, pro camera mode and AI imaging suite. It looks like HMD Global, which boasts of having a fastest growth in terms of smartphone portfolio expansion, is also following the same route. The device has a 6-inch 18:9 Full HD+ display and will go on sale from early April and at a global average retail price of 399 euros, excluding taxes and subsidies. The Nokia 8 Sirocco does come with slim bezels, but it still features a standard 16:9 display. The phone is going to cost Rs 25,999 and will be available on Amazon, Nokia Mobile Shop and select retail outlets.

First up is the most affordable of the three smartphones announced today, the 2018 refresh of the Nokia 6. It is also Nokia's best Android smartphone to date and comes with a lovely design that sees curved glass on the front and back melting seamlessly into a steel frame, delicately sandwiched in the middle. To top it off, the Nokia 6 is built with Series 6000 aluminium body, just like the old Nokia, this one's tought too. In the photography department, Nokia 8 Sirocco sports a rear dual-camera setup which is a combination of 12-megapixel and 13-megapixel ZEISS cameras.

Arguably the trickiest of three is the Nokia 8 Sirocco. Adding to the premium feel of the phone is the lack of a physical button on the front and the addition of wireless charging.

The phone has dual camera setup with 12 megapixels and 13 megapixels sensor. Under the hood, the phone gets powered by Snapdragon 630 processor, up from last year's Snapdragon 400 chipset. Airtel is offering cashback of Rs. 2,000 on purchase of the phone under the Mera Pehla Smartphone initiative. It is powered by a 2.2GHz Octa Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Processor coupled with 4GB of RAM. The front-facing camera is an 8-megapixel lens capable of shooting 1080p video. Imaging features also are of the same configuration- 16-megapixel camera sensor with PDAF, f/2.0 aperture lens accompanied by a dual-tone LED flash and Zeiss optics at the back and an 8-megapixel, f/2.0 84-degree wide-angle lens shooter on the front for selfies. Credit Suisse Group cut shares of Nokia from an "outperform" rating to a "neutral" rating and increased their price objective for the stock from $4.89 to $5.00 in a research report on Friday, January 5th. The front of the device sport an 8MP fixed focus camera selfie sensor with an f/2.0 aperture. The display on the 2017 Nokia 6 was pretty great and it should be the same with this year's release too.

Question: Does the Nokia 8 Sirocco features a fingerprint sensor?

What leaves us wondering is the fact that the Nokia 8, which was launched previous year costs Rs 27,999 while running on a far superior chipset, the Snapdragon 835.

HMD also showcased Nokia 1, which was launched in the Indian market recently. The other features of the phone include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, USB Type-C, 3.5mm audio jack and fingerprint scanner. The smartphone is backed by a 3000mAh battery with support for fast charging capabilities. The Nokia 6 is available in Black/Copper and White/Copper colours and is priced at Rs. 16,999.
