Nokia 8110 4G Feature Phone announced with 2.4-inch Curved Display

Andrew Hoyle  CNET

HMD Global owned Nokia has finally launched it's Nokia 8 Sirocco smartphone at an event held Barcelona.

It has also announced that it is to become the first global partner to have a full suite of devices selected into the Android One programme by Google. This OS provides an app store so if your favourite app isn't pre-loaded you can grab the likes of Google Assistant, Google Search, Google Maps, Facebook and Twitter, and it facilitates sending and receiving emails, importing your contacts, and syncing your calendar with Outlook and Gmail.

Ian Fogg from the IHS Technology consultancy said, HMD just started shipping Nokia mobiles internationally in the last seven months of 2017, and delivered over 8 million smartphones.

Furthermore, the device runs on an Android 8.0 Oreo operating system out-of-the-box.

Those hankering after a high-end experience can look to the Nokia 8 Sirocco which boasts a reinforced steel chassis that renders it immune from day to day abuse.

New Nokia 6 comes with a 16 Megapixel Autofocus rear camera with dual-Tone LED Flash and PDAF. It bears a 12-megapixel wide-angle sensor on its primary rear camera, complete with an f/1.75 aperture and 1.4-micron pixels.

The Nokia 7 Plus is backed by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Mobile Platform, optimised and integrated for maximum performance and battery life. You can take flawless selfies and can make full HD video calls through the camera. Its unibody is made from a solid block of 6000 series aluminium, with an 11-hour two-tone anodising and polishing process. A 6-inch Full HD+ display has minimal bezels - with the handset the same width as a traditional 5.5-inch device.

HMD confirmed a price of €749, and it will go on sale in April.

Mobile phone market tracker Counterpoint Research said Nokia phones surged during 2017 to become the world's No. 1 seller of low-priced feature phones and No. 11 in smartphones after only entering the market a year ago. The device has been announced in two color variants such as Dark Blue and Warm Red. Xpress-on covers, sold separately, are available in Azure, Grey, Yellow and Pink.

Seeking to capitalize on a remarkable comeback over the past year, Nokia phones are expanding to include their first premium Android smartphone model, as well as a remake of one of its biggest hits of the 1990s, the 8110 "slider" feature phone.
