Watch: Nokia 8 Sirocco First Look
Nokia 8 Sirocco
The most expensive among the trio, the Nokia 8 Sirocco boasts high-end aesthetics. Crafted from a single piece of stainless steel, the Nokia 8 Sirocco features Corning Gorilla Glass 5 at the front as well as the rear. Despite a premium device, it skips the bezel-less display or the famed notch on top. That’s because 95 percent of the surface area is all glass, which also means it is likely to be slightly vulnerable to cracks.
Nokia 8 Sirocco Pricing and Availability
The Nokia 8 Sirocco carries a price tag of Rs 49,999. It will go up for pre-orders starting April 20 on Flipkart. It will go on sale from April 30 online and across Nokia Mobile Shop and select mobile outlets as well.
Airtel customers buying the Nokia 8 Sirocco will be able to avail an additional data benefit of 120GB. Prepaid customers will be eligible for 20GB additional data on each of the first six recharges of Rs 199 or Rs 349, while postpaid customers can avail the additional 20GB per month on the Rs 399 or Rs 499 plan for six months. Airtel customers will also get an extended free subscription to the Airtel TV app until December 31, 2018. If you use ICIC bank cards, you will be eligible for five percent cashback until May 31, 2018.
There’s also 25 percent instant discount on domestic hotels at MakeMyTrip. Nokia 8 Sirocco will be available at zero cost EMI on credit cards and through Bajaj FinServ and Home Credit.
