By now, you’ll probably of all the hardware on the Nokia 8 Sirocco but let’s recap the main specs for those who have might missed it. Nokia’s phone is powered by last year’s flagship processor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 along with a whopping 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

The glass is also present on the back of the 8 Sirocco which allows it to support wireless charging, meanwhile in the middle we find a frame made out a single piece of stainless steel.

The smartphone does also feature a dual rear camera setup on the back composed of a 13MP + 12MP combo with as low as f/1.75 aperture; on the front we instead have a 5MP shooter with F/2.0 aperture.

Other features include a 3260mAh battery with support for QC4.0, support for 802.11ac (MIMO), Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, and GPS / GLONASS.
