  • Nokia 6 (2017) gets price cut ahead of Nokia 6 (2018) launch: But is it worth it?

While the Nokia 6 (2018) is an updated version of Nokia 6 launched past year by the company, Nokia 7 Plus is its first device to feature an 18:9 display.

HMD Global has finally launched the Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 7 Plus, and the Nokia 6 (2018) in India, nearly a month after they were officially unveiled during MWC 2018.

Even though this phone isn't Nokia's flagship phone, it still has some pretty high-end features for a mid-range phone. These three smartphones have been launched at an event in Delhi.

The Nokia 6 (2018) has been priced at Rs16,999, Nokia 7 Plus has been priced at Rs25,999 and Nokia 8 Sirocco will come at Rs 49,999.

The Nokia 8 Sirocco is the most powerful Nokia-branded, Android-powered smartphone to date.

The Nokia 6 (2018) includes a 5.5-inch Full HD display.

Answer: Nokia 8 Sirocco sports a 5.5-inch pOLED display. The company has secured the phone's front display with 3D Gorilla Glass. The phone will become available starting on April 30, while pre-bookings will open on April 20 on, Nokia mobile shop, and some retail stores.

Nokia 6 (2018) on the other hand, carries a price tag of Rs 16,999 and will be available from April 6 via Nokia Mobile Shop and select mobile stores.

The device has curved glass finish and a stainless-steel frame and 2-mm thin at the edge. Overall the device feels bold and Nokia claims to have built the device from a single block of aluminum for extra durability. The handset also comes with a 12MP+13MP dual-lens camera setup with support for 2x optical zoom.

But there is one more thing - of all these devices, one stands head and shoulders above the rest - the Nokia 7 Plus. The front panel looks conventional but the back panel comes with a layer of glass with support for wireless charging.

The phone has dual camera setup with 12 megapixels and 13 megapixels sensor. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of inbuilt storage. Its competing against the Xioami Redmi Note 5 Pro (starts at Rs 13,999), which runs a slightly faster Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 octa-core processor, offers dual cameras powered by Sony sensors and has a bigger 6-inch screen. It has a dual-tone flash enabled 16-megapixel ZEISS lens with f/2.0 aperture at the rear and it houses a selfie camera of f/2.0 aperture 8-megapixel. It packs a 3,800 mAh battery with fast charging support.

"Being part of the Android One family, these Nokia smartphones further emphasize our strong commitment to pure, secure and up-to-date Android", he added.

The device is also proof that Nokia is finally giving in to the 18:9 display rage. The fingerprint scanner is located on the back of the phone, and for navigation, you have to make do with the on-screen navigation buttons. That's surprising as nearly all other recently launched flagships of other brands are shipped with Snapdragon 845 SoC. The Nokia 7 Plus comes in Black / Copper, and White / Copper color variants, and it is priced at Rs. 25,999. Zacks Investment Research upgraded shares of Nokia from a "hold" rating to a "buy" rating and set a $6.00 price target for the company in a report on Thursday, March 29th.
