Nokia 8 Sirocco With Wireless Charging Technology and 18:9 ratio Bezel-less Display ~ Specs and Price

Nokia 8 Sirocco is an upgrade to last year's Nokia 8. With some advancements as seen on the specifications sheet of the device. Some of the new features include a bigger 5.5-inch p-OLED bezel-less display, stainless steel frame instead of aluminium, Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and back, and IP67 water and dust resistance instead of IP54 splash resistance.

The phone is rated IP67 rating meaning it can stay up to 30 minutes inside water without any issue. In other words, it won't damage when submerged inside 1 metre of water. So it's water resistant.

The Nokia Sirocco supports QuickCharge 4, this can charge it from 0 to 50% in 30 minutes. It also has wireless charging technology.

For performance, the device is expected to perform very well, good for multitasking and perfect for hard-core gamers. It's powered by the same Snapdragon 835 processor as the Nokia 8 though and has the same 6GB RAM which is similar to what LG has done with the V30S and V30S+.
