Answer: Coming to the optics, the Nokia 8 Sirocco comes with dual rear cameras with Carl Zeiss optics. Nokia 9 is said to measure 150.6×75.2×7.3 mm. All of this is fueled by a 3260mAh battery with wired fast charging and Qi wireless charging support.

The Nokia 7, in comparison, ran on the Snapdragon 630, which isn't almost as powerful as the 660.

Airtel is offering a cashback offer of Rs. 2000 along with a subscription to Airtel TV app until the 31st December 2018. Nokia 8 Sirocco features a 5.5-inch QHD pOLED display and is powered by the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor clubbed with 6GB RAM. The front hosts a 5MP selfie camera with fixed focus lens and f/2.0 aperture. Imaging features also are of the same configuration- 16-megapixel camera sensor with PDAF, f/2.0 aperture lens accompanied by a dual-tone LED flash and Zeiss optics at the back and an 8-megapixel, f/2.0 84-degree wide-angle lens shooter on the front for selfies. It has 5 megapixels front camera.

The device integrates Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 Mobile Platform to deliver fast and smooth performance alongside great day-long battery life. For what's worth, the original Nokia 6 got a price cut few days ago. Some users often accuse the company of playing on the feelings of the fans of the equipment of Nokia, but this does not prevent the company to sell thousands of devices worldwide. The leak also reveals a picture labeled "camera revolution" of the upcoming Nokia 9 flagship by HMD. The rear also hosts a fingerprint sensor. All the physical keys are placed on the right-hand side of this phone, while the device's SIM card tray sits on the left. The new Nokia 6 will be available at zero cost EMI on credit cards and through Bajaj FinServ and Home Credit.
