Nokia phones to expand to high-end while also striking nostalgia chord

Nokia 4 Nokia phones to expand to high-end while also striking nostalgia chord

These high-end specs are accompanied by an equally high pricetag though, set at €749 (~£660), and the Nokia 8 Sirocco is powered by last year's Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, not its flagship 845 chip.

The new Nokia line-up. There's a MediaTek (MT6737M) quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, dual SIM slots and a removable 2150mAh battery.

The Nokia 6 already hit the USA past year - it's available through Amazon as a Prime Exclusive phone, for instance - but Nokia has an updated version coming in April for €279. It will be available from April, this year.

There are plenty of low-priced rivals from more obscure brands which usually have a variety of different issues, and the Nokia 1 is looking to provide a simple alternative that may take a little longer to load, but will work how you want it to.

Unsurprisingly the design of the Nokia 1 is pretty uninspired.

The Nokia 1 runs Android Oreo, or at least the Android Go version of Google's latest OS.

The phone features a 5.5-inch pOLED screen. A 5-megapixel shooter (f/2.0 aperture) lies on the front side of the phone, while the Nokia 8 Sirocco also comes with a display flash. You'll also get monthly security patches with all Nokia phones, and the company promises the Nokia 1 will be upgraded to Android P and Q when they become available.

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 highlight of the Nokia 7 Plus, is its enhanced Dual-Sight, dual-rear sensors with ZEISS optics.

The phone comes with dual camera setup. This new camera system gives you twin Zeiss lenses, a normal lens (1.4µm pixels, aperture of f/1.7) and a zoom lens. As per the Android maker, several Android Go edition phones, costing about Rs 3,200, will be unveiled during the event.

It also has a Fingerprint sensor located on the rear panel.

But if you're looking for a secondary phone that you don't mind damaging, this could be a great buy.

The Nokia 8 Sirocco is that follow-up device, with a 5.5-inch curved display that is also a little reminiscent of Samsung's Galaxy S8. And that's not just any Android Oreo, oh no - it's Android One so it's pure Android. The aim of the Nokia 1 is to provide a functional Android smartphone at a low price that works properly.
