Test: Nokia 8 Sirocco is here

Nokia 8 Sirocco, the most beautiful and expensive Nokia device, has finally landed to Nokiamob for a test. This piece of brutally beautiful Finnish design has been shown to the world back at MWC2018. This device brought with itself many questions, like is this HMD’s flagship device, the supposed Nokia 9 or is this just an upgrade of Nokia 8?
I must say that I was astounded when I first saw the device, and still am. It is beautiful, solid hard and blazing fast device. Below you can find its technical specs.

Here are few pics of the Nokia 8 Sirocco so you can see its beauty for yourself. I also like Sirocco’s box, especially what comes in it. The only piece I couldn’t find was the silicone cover. Probably some journalist before forgot to pack it back. Ah, well we’ll live without it.



I’ll be taking some photos and post it on Twitter or my Instagram account, so you can see what Sirocco’s camera can do. Here are some photos I took today. Quality is reduced to save the server space.

If you have any question about the device, please feel free to leave it in the comments. I’ll do my best to test it for you and give you the best answer I can.

Thanks HMD Global for letting us play with the device 🙂
