First unveiled at the Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona in February 2018 was launched today in Delhi.

Though HMD Global Oy has been silent on what products it will be launching on Wednesday, the teaser images released by company's official Facebook handle and vice president Ajey Mehta on Twitter in the past one week, have strongly hinted that Nokia 8 Sirocco edition and the Nokia 7 Plus will be announced for sure. This handset will be available in offline market from 6 of April onwards. This latest chipset is supported by 4GB of RAM, 64GB of inbuilt storage, expandable via microSD card up to 256GB.

All the three devices will run on Android One with additional features like face unlock and AI-assisted camera modes.

Nokia 7 Plus: It features a 6-inch full HD+ (2160 × 1080 pixels) FullView screen having 18:9 aspect ratio. The Nokia 6 features Nokia spatial audio, recording audio with two microphones. Now Finnish site Suomimobiili has put out the specifications sheet of Nokia 9, revealing details of the upcoming smartphone.

For now, the company's engineers will be reviewing the valuable flight, motor, and performance data gleaned from the test flight. It was the 69 flight for SpaceShipTwo , all but four of which have been gliding flights. "Space feels tantalisingly close now".

All the Nokia 2018 smartphones feature Zeiss optics for handling the photography department.

- At Rs 49,999 the Nokia 8 Sirocco does not come cheap and I expect only die-hard fans and those who want the most good-looking Nokia phone to really go for this one. The front hosts a 5MP selfie camera with fixed focus lens and f/2.0 aperture.

The Nokia 8 Sirocco is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC and comes with 6GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage. There's also a fingerprint sensor mounted on the back. A 3000 mAh battery powers the device providing 16 hours of talk time and 507 hours of standby time. The handset will support Qi fast wireless charging, said to offer 60 per cent charge in 30 minutes. The Snapdragon 630 chipset + 4GB RAM in the Nokia 6 (2018) offers almost 60 per cent better performance than the Snapdragon 430 found in the original Nokia 6. For selfies, it comes with a 16 Megapixel with ZEISS optics front camera. Nokia's OZO triple-mic setup is also present here for audio recording.

It appears that the fingerprint scanner will be on the front, so you might not get that huge screen to body ratio as some phones. It bears a 3800mAh battery with fast charging. There is 12MP + 13MP dual rear camera with dual tone LED flash light and f/1.75 aperture (primary) and f/2.4 aperture (secondary). However, consumers will think twice about this as they would find it much reasonable to spend that much or a little more to get a phone with 2018 hardware instead. The phone will ship with Android 8.0 Oreo OS out-of-the-box. For Nokia 7 Plus and the Nokia 8 Sirocco pre-booking starts from 20 April while the sales commence from April 30th. At the bottom, you will find a USB Type-C port with speaker grille at the top and 3.5mm headphone jack. It must be noted that Nokia 9 will be featuring ZEISS-branded triple-lens camera setup which would be technically superior as compared to the Leica lens used in Huawei phones.
