HMD Global launched the Nokia 7 Plus and its flagship smartphone, the Nokia 8 Sirocco in India earlier this month and users can finally start pre-booking both smartphones beginning today. Prepaid customers need to recharge with either Rs 199 or Rs 349 and the postpaid customers can also avail the offer for six months if they are on the Rs 399 or the Rs 499 plan. We actually read through the opinions of the masses that responded to the firmware update post on Twitter and we found the hate to be wrongfully aimed at Nokia.

ICICI credit and debit card customers buying either of the phones can avail a 10% cash back for a limited period. So, let's have a look of what Nokia 7 and Nokia 8 Sirocco are all about. It has a Snapdragon 660 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage and comes with Android Oreo Go edition, meaning an Android with nearly no bloatware on top. The company has reduced the RAM to 4 GB instead of the 6 GB that came with the Nokia 7 from previous year.

Nokia 7 Plus has a 6-inch screen and comes in an aluminium uni-body. The 7 Plus has been priced at Rs. 25,999 while the 8 Sirocco is priced at Rs. 49,999. Nokia 8 Sirocco is powered with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835, which could be a disappointing fact considered among other top smartphones in the industry which are powered with the latest Qualcomm 845 SoC.

Don't forget the Nokia 1 and new Nokia 6 are already available and shipping in India, priced at Rs. 5,499 ($84) and 16,999 ($258) respectively.

When HMD Global launched the Android smartphones at MWC 2017, the company had promised that it will provide timely security updates, and two major software updates. The Nokia 8 Sirocco consumers will also get 25 per cent instant discount on domestic hotels at MakeMyTrip.

Camera: 12 MP primary rear camera with 2L7 wide-angle lens, 1.4um pixel size, f/1.7 aperture + 13 MP secondary camera with 3M3 Telephoto lens, 1.0um pixel size, f/2.6 aperture, dual-tone flash, 2x optical zoom and 5MP front-facing camera with 1.4um pixel size.
