The Nokia countdown... 8, 7, 6.... three new Nokia smartphones for different budgets
Bangalore, April 23 2018: Nokia, the brand that introduced Indians to their first mobile phones, reinvented itself sometime back. The result was a range of devices that promised the three things it was always known for -- durability, performance and affordability. Now, the brand has added three more smartphones: -- Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 6. All are part of Google's Android One program, which provides a pure Android experience, including Android Oreo out of the box, monthly software updates and no unnecessary battery drain due to heavy UI apps.
Nokia 8 Sirocco is the showcase device and comes with a combination of curved Corning Gorilla glass and aluminum, with a 5.5 inches display. The 2.2 mm thick device has rear sensors with Zeiss optics that provides high-quality primary camera images, through a 13 MP front dual camera with 2x optical zoom. The device also offers a 5 MP front clicker. Powered by the Snapdragon 845 processor, the Nokia 8 comes in a 6 GB + 128 GB memory configuration, and is available in black at Rs. 49,999.
If you fancy a slightly cheaper mid-range option, the Nokia 7 Plus is priced at Rs. 25,999. Powered by the Snapdragon 660 processor, the device comes with a 3800 mAh battery, a 6-inch screen and a 12 MP + 13 MP (back) and a 16 MP front camera. Available in a 4 GB + 64 GB memory configuration, the Nokia 7 Plus is available in black/copper and white/copper.
The Nokia 6 is the least expensive of the family at Rs. 16,999. The USP of this device is its simple, yet classy design and a mix of performance specs that make it a value device. It is made from a single block of aluminum and comes in a 16 MP + 8 MP camera configuration. The 5.5 inches device sports a 3000 mAh battery, and comes in 3 GB + 32 GB memory combination.
If you are willing to splurge on an ultra stylish and performance-heavy device, the Nokia 8 Sirocco is the one to go for. If style is your forte, Nokia 6 is a better option and if you can compromise on style but not on performance, the 7 Plus is the one for you.
