The Nokia 8 Sirocco was launched back in February at MWC 2018. It is the most expensive and most powerful phone on the Android One program.
The flagship phone is an upgraded version of the Nokia 8 with all the features users complained were missing now included and more. So, it is no surprise that the Nokia 8 Sirocco has a higher launch price than the Nokia 8 (€749 against €599).
That price doesn’t seem to deter those who want it as it seems to be flying off shelves very fast. It already went on sale in China on JD.com last month but it appears it went out of stock. The online mall again listed it today for sale but is now sold out.
It is a bit surprising as this is something we only associate with brands like Xiaomi. Nevertheless, we can’t tell if this is a case of available stock being smaller than normal or the phone itself is really selling fast.
The Nokia 8 Sirocco is priced at ¥4699 (~$747). It has a 5.5” 2K pOLED curved display with Gorilla Glass 5. It is powered by the Snapdragon 835 with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. There are dual ZEISS lens on the rear in a 12MP + 13MP configuration and a 5MP front-facing camera.
The phone has a 3260mAh battery, supports QC 3.0 and wireless charging, and has an IP67 rating. There is Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, and a USB-C port.
JD.com has not yet announced when it will be available for sale again. However, you can sign up on the page for a notification when it is available.
