We are talking about a reformed Nokia 8 that was launched in 2017. Nokia 8 Sirocco comes with new features such as 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 IP67 rating implies that the phone can be submerged in water for up to 1 metre and 30 minutes. What else is different in the Nokia 8 Sirocco that sets it apart from the original Nokia 8? There is QuickCharge 4, which tops off your battery from 0 to 50% in 30 minutes, wireless charging, as well as new cameras.

The Nokia 8 Sirocco is powered by the same Snapdragon 835 processor as the Nokia 8 though and has the same 6GB RAM that one of the variants of its predecessor has, so there isn’t much difference in power under the hood. Which is similar to what LG has done with the V30S and V30S+.
