Nokia brings back the 8110

Yes, the new Nokia 8 Sirroco edition is officially announced at Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona, Spain by HMD Global. The Nokia 8110 runs on the Smart Feature OS, which does not allow access to Android apps, but will include its own app store. Powered by Snapdragon 835, the device has 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of internal storage, and a dual-lens 12 MP + 13 MP rear camera.

Camera Specifications - Now moving to the camera department of the phone, the new revamped version of Nokia 8110 comes with a 2-megapixel camera at the back with LED flash for clicking pictures and videos.

HMD Global, the Finnish manufacturer producing Nokia phones today, said the phone is expected to launch worldwide in May, with a global average retail price of 79 euros.

It may be mentioned that Android 8.0 Oreo update comes with several new features, including new notifications, picture-in-picture mode, new emojis, faster boot, improved battery and enhanced camera besides fixing bugs. The phone is slight curved.

Part of its comeback is the new announcement that the company will be bringing back the old camera app as the Nokia Pro camera app.

Building on what was shown off in the Nokia 7 Plus, the device sports an 18:9 Full HD+ 6-inch IPS LCD panel wrapped in a premium chassis built from 6000 series aluminium making the device feel like a high-end device. It still features the same banana-shape curve and slide-out keypad cover design. Still, the Nokia 8 Sirocco looks like a piece of art. There's no front camera, but a 2MP snapper makes the rounds at the back. Nokia also launched the Nokia 3310 4G that was also launched in China last month.

The Android One platform is an unmodified version of Android originally designed for entry-level devices in emerging markets.

Each of the new phones comes with a limited number of pre-installed apps so that you'll get more storage space, as well as the latest innovations that help you stay ahead of the game every day. The Nokia 6 and 7 Plus still have headphone jacks, though the 8 Sirocco casts it away. Although its first attempt to connect the next billion through a wave of low-priced, quality mobile phones based around the Android ecosystem - aka Android One - failed to set the cash counters ringing, Google believes, there's still hope. There is also a much larger 3,260mAh battery and wireless charging support.
