HMD to announce Nokia 8 Sirocco at the MWC 2018 in Barcelona

2 February 2018, 02:40:04

HMD to announce Nokia 8 Sirocco at the MWC 2018 in BarcelonaHMD Global continues its trend in reviving well-known and loved older Nokia models/brands. Recently, it has licensed a new model called Nokia 8 Sirocco with model number TA-1005. Up to now, all leaks deemed TA-1005 to be Nokia 9 but now it is clear this is not the case. The new name is reminiscent of the high-end Nokia 8800 Sirocco* phone, which was one of the most expensive Nokia models at the time. Compared to the classic Nokia 8, the Sirocco version will have an OLED display, two front cameras, and more built-in memory. It will retain the two rear cameras, Snapdragon 835, and the 3250 mAh battery from the previous model. HMD Global has already said it will bring excellent products to the MWC at the end of February, so most probably Nokia 8 Sirocco will be announced during the company's conference.

*Sirocco - a strong Mediterranean wind that originates above the Sahara desert and reaches far north to Southern Europe.
