Nokia’s assault on the nostalgic parts of our brain has continued with the release of its first luxury handset in over a decade, the Nokia 8 Sirocco.
Last used in 2005, the Sirocco name is Nokia’s way of signifying that this phone is as much about its design and craftsmanship as it is about taking selfies and chatting on Facebook Messenger.
The 8 Sirocco is based, rather unsurprisingly on last year’s Nokia 8 flagship smartphone with a few pretty important differences.
For starters there’s a whole new design here with a single sheet of 3D-curved Gorilla Glass 5 that wraps around the sides and on all corners. Underneath it is a curved 5.5-inch 2K POLED display.
