What to expect from MWC 2018

Posted February 26, 2018

The Nokia 8 Sirocco will launch in April for a recommend price of Euro 749, making it the top of HMD's range.

Nokia is having a busy day with it already unveiling its new budget Nokia 8110 feature phone. All future Nokia smartphones (Nokia 3 and upwards) will be a part of the Android One initiative - which means they will not only run a 100 percent stock build of Android but receive software updates directly from Google.

On the front, the phone has a 5 megapixel shooter which also supports wide angle shots. It also includes a 16MP front-facing camera along with an f/2.0 aperture.

Nokia 8 Sirocco will ship with Android Oreo 8.0 and since its an Android One device, you will be able to get latest Android updates from Google soon.

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. And with Pro Camera mode (remember Nokia Camera app on Lumia devices?) you get full manual control over every picture you take. This old-school phone will run on 256GB RAM, 512MB internal storage, up to 64GB microSD card support, and Wi-Fi support. While rumors leading up to the event were all about the Nokia 9, it was actually the Nokia 8 Sirocco that was announced. A 3.5mm headphone jack is not available here, you'll need to use a dongle in order to plug your headphones in. The phone will be reportedly equipped with rotating zoom technology from the house of Carl Zeiss. Available from early April, with a choice of clip-on covers, the Nokia 1 will be retailing for an average of $85. The Nokia 1 has a 4.5-inch display with a very modest 854 x 480 resolution.

Under the hood you'll find Qualcomm's 835 Snapdragon processor a 3260 mAh battery and 128GB of memory.

Nokia 6 (2018) comes with the traditional design as all Nokia smartphones with thick bezels on the front side around the display. The Nokia 1 is backed by a 2,150mAh battery and offers basic connectivity options including 4G VoLTE. There's a "bothie" camera feature that allows for simultaneous capture from the front and rear cameras. But that's exactly the kind of device that Android Go was made for.

As everyone expected, the Nokia 6 (2018) just became global.

Nokia 6 will be available with a full HD display size of 5.5 inch. These latest flagship phones are rumoured to include seriously upgraded cameras, with a variable aperture for the S9 and dual lenses for the S9+.

We don't have official United Kingdom pricing just yet, but Nokia says we can expect a price tag of around €79 - so that's probably £79, too.

Last year, Nokia pulled the biggest PR coup of MWC when it announced it was bringing back the 3310 - although the reality didn't live up to the nostalgia-tinted expectations. Rs 31,000). It is backed by a 3000mAh battery.

With its new variants in the pipeline, Nokia will be looking forward towards hitting the mid-range market focusing on the sale numbers.
