Nokia introduces upgraded champion and takes us back to the Matrix

At the Mobile World Congress, Nokia has announced multiple smartphones: Including the Nokia 8 Sirocco and the retro-revival of the Nokia 8110 aka the “Matrix phone.”

The Nokia 8 Sirocco features a 95-percent glass body framed with a stainless steel chassis. The screen is a 5.5-inch pOLED display with 2560×1440 resolution, with curved edges and the fingerprint sensor located at the back.

The 12MP rear camera comes with manual controls to give users more freedom in taking their shots. The front camera uses 5MP with a wide-angle lens, for improved “bothie.” The Nokia 8 Sirocco is powered with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and partnered with 6 gigs of RAM, and with a generous 128GB internal storage.

The only thing missing on the Nokia 8 Sirocco is the headphone jack. So anyone interested in this device will need Bluetooth headphones or an adapter to type-C ports.

Alongside the Nokia 8 Sirocco are the Nokia 7 Plus and the Nokia 6. The former uses Snapdragon 660 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB storage. The display measures a 6-inch LCD with 2160×1080 resolution. The latter of the two devices, the Nokia 6 is powered with a Snapdragon 630, with comes with either 3 or 4 gigs of RAM, and 32 or 64 gigs of internal storage. The Nokia 6 has a decent 16MP rear camera.

Last but not the least: Nokia is reviving the 8810, the so-called “Matrix phone” which was seen in the Matrix films starring Keanu Reeves. The handset is more curved and uses Smart Feature OS, a basic operating system – so don’t expect to download apps from Google here. However, HMD Global, the team behind developing the new Nokia phones, said that there will be an app store for the Smart Feature OS, so you can still get basic apps like Facebook.
