Let’s take a closer look at how the latest couple of launches from Nokia match up to their existing flagship on different parameters.
Nokia 7 Plus
Nokia has chosen to give the Nokia 7 Plus smartphone a metal frame for sturdiness and a rubberized matte finish back for a better feel in hands. The front of the smartphone consists of the display along with the selfie camera, earpiece and all the sensors.
The bottom edge of the device hosts the USB Type-C port and the top edge features the 3.5mm audio jack. On the right edge we get to see the power button and the volume rocker, and on the left edge is a SIM card tray. The rear of the device consists of a dual camera setup with a fingerprint scanner located below it.
The Nokia 8 is the first flagship from the company since the day they got bought by HMD Global. The device feels very light and sturdy when held in hand. The sturdy feeling comes from the aluminium body the device is encased in. On the front, we get to see the 5.3-inch Quad HD IPS display. Along with the display, we get to see the front facing camera along with the earpiece. On the back, we get to see the first ever dual camera setup from Nokia.
Nokia 8 Sirocco
Nokia 8 Sirocco is the first device from the company to sport a glass back and front, both. The device due to the stainless steel chassis and the glass panels looks stellar. Similar to the Galaxy S9, the Nokia 8 Sirrocco also features curved edges on the display of the device. One thing that concerns me a bit is that due to the glass back, the device will be a fingerprint magnet that you will have to keep cleaning from time to time.
The Nokia 8 Sirocco is the first smartphone from the company to remove the 3.5mm audio jack. We have to see what this means for the future devices from the company. This smartphone also comes with IP67 water and dust resistance rating.
