HMD/Nokia's smartphones join Google's Android One program 'leading the charge'

LG : smartphones expected at MWC would be the LG V30s

Rs 5,500) and features entry-level hardware. During the announcement, Nokia also claimed to be "the first global partner to have a full suite of devices into the Android One programme by Google". Given that it's an Android One device, there is no bloatware on the phone as well as no custom user interface from the company. However, this new device comes with an 18:9 display and dual rear cameras.

HMD Global, the company that has the licence to make Nokia-branded phones, loves retro.

The edges of the Nokia 8 Sirocco taper from 7.5mm to 2mm, and on the right the power/lock and volume keys are located at the thinnest tip.

While the display remains the same size and resolution, there's been a slight reduction in the bezels top and bottom as this phone gets a little shorter.

The Nokia 8 Sirocco is powered by the Snapdragon 835 chipset. The battery will last for about 14 hrs. The new Nokia 6 will ship in early April for 279 Euro. One with 3GB LPDDR4 RAM and 32GB internal storage while the second model will come with 4GB RAM with 64GB internal storage.

The 3,260 mAh battery supports Qi wireless charging and fast charging promises up to 50% power up in 30 minutes. For selfies, the device comes equipped with a 16MP front-facing camera. You can read about these two phones here.

We have already talked about the Android 1 in detail here. The phone's predecessor originally launched in 1996 and has a special place of cinematic glory thanks to Keanu Reeves using one in The Matrix. A 3260 mAh battery completes the package. It will feature the Android Oreo Go edition, and will be available early April for around $85, the Nokia 1 comes with Android Oreo (Go Edition), an Android version optimized for devices with 1 GB of RAM or less.

The rise of AI in digital assistants will also be a noticeable theme throughout the event, as several large-scale telecom providers, such as Orange, Deutsche Telekom and Telefonica are set to launch their own versions of the two-way speaking devices during the show, according to market research firm Ovum.

One disappointing thing about this device is its processor as Nokia has made a decision to go with last year's Snapdragon 835 processor. This is a refresh of a classic Nokia feature phone with a curved slider design. The company launched the 4G-enabled feature phone with its iconic curved designed along with a sliding cover for the alphanumeric keypad.

Under the hood is the MediaTek MT6737M quad-core clocked at 1.1GHz and comes coupled with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. There is a 5MP rear camera with an LED flash along with a 2MP front camera, both of which are fixed focus.

These devices are really interesting be it their features, designs etc. For example, we were told that a Facebook app with messaging capabilities will be available at some point down the road.
