Nokia 8 Sirocco – Special Edition Flagship Phone

Listen to this article

The Nokia 8 Sirocco is the “ultimate statement of flagship design with the latest screen and camera technology” according to HMD Global, the firm behind the iconic name that adorns its series of Android smartphones.



Dimensions: 140.93 x 72.97 x 7.5mm
OS: Android 8
Screen size: 5.5 inches
Resolution: 2560 x 1440
CPU: Snapdragon 835
Storage: 128GB
Battery: 3,260mAh
Rear camera: 12MP + 13MP
Front camera: 5MP


5.5-inch QHD OLED display, a body that’s covered in 95% vacuum molded Gorilla Glass and has a stainless steel frame at its core.


Snapdragon 835 chipset, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, dual rear facing camera, a fingerprint sensor, face unlock and Android 8 Oreo onboard.

Running the show is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, a chip which featured in 2017’s flagship phones, so it feels a little out of place in a 2018 top-tier device.

That said, it’s a still a top performer, and coupled with 6GB of RAM the Nokia 8 Sirocco should be capable of running pretty much anything you throw at it.

The edges of the Nokia 8 Sirocco taper from 7.5mm to 2mm, and on the right the power/lock and volume keys are located at the thinnest tip.


Another flagship feature on the Nokia 8 Sirocco is its dual rear cameras, tuned by Zeiss Optics.

The Nokia brand has a long standing history with Zeiss Optics which has been tuning its phone cameras for decades.

On the 8 Sirocco you get a 12MP main sensor alongside a 13MP telephoto lens, allowing you to take Bokeh effect (background blur) shots.

Operating System

The Android 8 Oreo operating system ran smoothly during our time with the phone and we didn’t experience any performance blemishes – although that could change once it’s filled with apps, games, videos, photos and music.

Battery life

Under the hood there’s a 3,260mAh non-removable battery which we expect should see out a day on a single charge


Great buy for your money with appealing design craftsmanship & powerful specs, Only thing I didn’t like is the stock android 8.0  which is very bold & ugly but it does gives the phone great performance. Overall great phone we can download & use some custom launcher to give the phone great feel & look.
