A couple of weeks back, it was revealed that HMD Global filed a trademark application for the name Nokia 8 Sirocco. Sirocco is defined by most dictionaries as a warm, sultry south or southeast wind accompanied by rain, occurring in the same regions. In this light, the Nokia 8 Sirocco model is anticipated to feature a topnotch design and perhaps would be launched globally. The model has been appearing in leaks quite regularly, so it is no surprise that the guys at Concept Creator have come up with a concept design of the Sirocco model.
The video was spotted on the outfit’s Youtube channel and it showcases the device adorning a glass body on top a metal fuselage. The device is expected to be a high-end model and it packs a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. The Nokia 8 Sirocco concept also reveals a Zeiss-branded dual camera setup on the back. Just under the dual cameras, there is a dual-LED flash.Interestingly, the device also packs a dual camera setup at the front, making it a Quad-camera packing smartphone. Other noticeable features include regulars like a 3.5mm headphone jack placed at the top of the phone, a SIM card tray on the right side of the display and a USB Type-C port at the bottom of the device. The concept video showcases the Nokia 8 Sirocco in three different colour trims; an all-black back, a black back with orange sides, orange accents around the dual camera setup and a fingerprint scanner, and a variant with blue-coloured backside as well. This similar to what Nokia is doing with the Nokia 7 Plus as seen on the leaked press renders.
Another key design feature is the thin bezels the device packs on its display. Earlier rumour tips the device to feature a 5.5-inch OLED display with an FHD+ resolution. It is also expected to feature a Snapdragon 845 chip paired with 6GB of RAM. It remains to be seen if the Nokia 8 Sirocco would pack these specs as well as the design but we expect all the details to unravel when it is launched at MWC 2018. Meanwhile, here’s is the concept video.
