What makes Nokia 7 Plus unique? All you need to know

Powered by the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC paired with 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM, the device comes mated to a non-removable 3,260mAh battery rated to deliver up to 22 hours of talk time and 495 hours of standby time. The display is 16:9 which in my opinion doesn't live up to the expectations that's because the rival handsets provide latest 18:9 display. Customers on Airtel can get a cashback of Rs 2000 on Nokia 6 and own the smartphone at an effective price of Rs. 14,999.

Nokia 8 Sirocco will be available at a recommended best buy price of Rs. 49,999.

"Our ambition is to be a full range player, catering to all consumer segments, and through the year we will be launching either new devices or refresh our existing devices". The 9.7MP lens would be a monochrome sensor. It is built from a single piece of stainless steel and as HMD Global says, 95 percent of the surface area is all glass. The 7 Plus packs a 6-inch Full HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio and 1080 x 2160 pixels resolution. Up front, HMD has added an 8MP shooter for selfies and video calls. We spent some time with the device and here are our first impressions. A more in-depth review of the phone will tell us whether or not that guarantee actually holds true. The rear side features a dual camera module that houses a 12-megapixel wide-angel sensor with f/1.75 aperture and a 13-megapixel telephoto sensor. The front camera is a 16megapixel unit which comes with an f/2.0 aperture, which in our experience performed well. The new addition to imaging however is the "Bothie mode' which allows the users to use both the rear and front camera simultaneously to create a bothie".

The smartphone is very similar to the Nokia 8 except the screen in 2.5D instead a 3D. 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. The camera quality is impressive and seemed to perform quite well in low light situation. The dual camera setup comes accompanied with a dual tone flash. The Zeiss- powered dual lens comes with a combination of 12-megapixel and 13-megapixel sensors. Airtel subscribers will also get extended Airtel TV subscription along with the handset.

Software- Nokia 6, Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 8. Also, as the bezels on this smartphone are smaller, there's no fingerprint scanner on the front below the display, or even the capacitive navigation buttons. It is fuelled by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset and 3,800 mAh battery. The smartphone comes with 32GB or 64GB of inbuilt storage, expandable via microSD card (128GB). It would offer dual-SIM support and run Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. It sports 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. Firing up the preloaded apps was not a fuss and the apps fired up pretty fast.

Question: Does the Nokia 8 Sirocco support 4G VoLTE? The new Snapdragon 845 chipset would have justified the price.

- The Nokia 8 Sirocco spiritually takes on last year's OnePlus 5T, Galaxy S8 and Pixel 2, to name a few.
